A Novel Idea
A Novel Idea
by Aimee Friedman
Once upon a time there was a Brooklyn hipster named Norah. Unlucky in love, and short on extracurriculars for her college apps, Norah decided to start a book group. She knew the perfect locale -- a local indie bookstore with a crush-worthy cutie manning the soy latte counter.
When the first meeting arrives, Norah gets a page-turning surprise. The attendees may be bookish, but there are also a few hotties! Most noteworthy: sweet, literary James. He's like a modern Jane Austen hero....
Only, how to snag him? Ever the romantic heroine, Norah devises a secret plan. And if it works, Norah may just find her "Happily Ever After" love story. The End. (description from Amazon.com)
Oh. This book was the perfect break from all of the books I'm reading strictly to review. It was wonderful to just sit down to a happy little romantic comedy. :)
Norah was a funny character. She's kinda funky...with that indie vibe...perfect to start a hipster book club. As a book lover, I really enjoyed the fact that this entire storyline was centered around a book club...and it made me want to run out and join one!
I also really loved how Friedman layered the events of Norah's favorite new, oh horror of embarrassing horrors!!!, romance novel into the events of Norah's real life. It was so cute how the two intertwined.
Really, all in all, just a cute little book that I recommend if you want something light and happy. Something that will leave you with a smile.
