    This might be the cutest book I've ever read. The entire thing was just so hopeful and HAPPY (even when the topic might not have been). The Italian scenery was gorgeous, the food was amazing, and all of the characters were so precious. I wish I could go back and read it all over again... or just go to Florence this summer myself. If you're looking for a good YA contemporary (or just a lovely book in general) I definitely recommend this one!!

    More thoughts and possibly a BiblioBabble to come!

    Possibly even a 4.5/5 stars

    THIS. WAS. SO. CUTE.

    The plot? Adorable and intriguing. The characters? Pretty great. The setting? INCREDIBLE. So much good stuff in this BOOK!

    I loved the twists and the turns of the plot as well as the added element of Lina's mom's journal. And a book set in Italy just.....so good. So so good.

    If you enjoy contemporary romances you'll for sure enjoy this book.

    This contemporary novel is exactly what I needed after finishing a frightening thriller novel –

    . It took my mind off negative thoughts about life and marriage.

    It’s a

    story starring a very lively American girl who is sent to her father’s house in Italy by her grandmother after her mother succumbed to cancer.

    When Lina arrives in Italy, she is given her mother’s journal for when she studied photography there.

    Lina not only wants to understand what happened between her mother and Howard – why they are not together anymore – but she also wants to feel closer to her mother by doing so.

    I especially enjoyed the snippets of her mother’s life in Italy. While her story is indeed saddening, there is good that comes out of it.

    Lina also meets a charming male fellow living next d—field to her. Ren is sweet and respectful and open and generous – I took a like to him. While there is a

    , it’s easy to discard it from one’s mind.

    So that’s the good part. The no-so-great part is the

    . If there’s one thing I’m annoyed with is when a character refuses or can’t see the obvious in front of her and has to go through great lengths or experience painful events to discover what was always crystal obvious.

    In other words,

    , and Lina is definitely one of them. Furthermore, the whole ‘‘who is my father?’’ situation didn’t need to be that complicated. And it’s not that it’s

    per se, but the author made it so. She deliberately confuses us!

    , I love being played with and being able to guess things for myself, but when someone is actually making me walk circles over and over again—no, thank you.

    I had fun with

    The setting is gorgeous, the main characters are heart-warming and the adventures pretty darn diverting.

    was a book I desperately wanted to love. I mean, the set up was perfect. Italy, love and gelato (which I've never actually had but it sounds good). Italy is a destination I have always wanted to travel, and how could you not with all the culture present in the cities.

    However, as I began to read this book I knew it wasn't going to be a finish for me. Why? Well, the writing just jumped straight into the plot without any other pretenses or introductions, straight to the fact a house was in a cemetery. Then, we have one of the protagonists,

    , first line:

    What? What in the name of all things holy and blessed does this mean? Is weak tea really the metaphor you choose to use? I knew this book, and I would have a problem here almost instantly. I can handle crazy metaphors sometimes, but this was a no and was at the very beginning of the book, so it could only go downhill. For me, it did.

    Not only did my hatred for Lina become cemented in the first 100 pages of the 900 page eBook

    I was subjected to countless more strange and "quirky" people. However, Lina was just

    . I understand her mum had died six months previously, and it seemed like that was leading up to be an excuse featuring through the rest of the book, but she was rude. She was unwilling to give her recently discovered father a chance. I don't understand why because she isn't even sure if he knew about her existence.

    Also:

    Is a sentence I never want to hear again because

    Oh, we also get to introduced to Lina's totally

    awesome best friend, who is like

    funny.

    Like Ron's burger, this

    missed the mark for me.

    Oh, and lets not forget that Addie and Lina are both very

    creative:

    I can't even add onto that. I understand there is a "tacky tourist" look, but honestly, if I went travelling I would probably be a tacky tourist myself and guess what?

    Now, one last quote before I conclude this review. The quote that made me decide this was not for me in any way:

    I understand some people may think I didn't give this book a fair go, considering I decided to DNF at 10%, but honestly, I couldn't subject myself to this. I couldn't put myself through head banging sentences and characters who are meant to be funny and different but are simply rude. It's possible this story is

    cute, but I won't be sticking around to find out.

    Honestly, what this book felt like was a jumble of words that shouldn't have slipped past an editor, in my opinion.
