    3.5, rounding up First of all, I love this cover. So simple, so cute. I was pretty excited to read this book because I read Love & Gelato and fell in love with it. This one wasn't as good as Love & Gelato for me but I did enjoy a lot of it. This is a contemporary YA book...

    4.5* I loved this just as much as I loved Love & Gelato. This is an adorable story about love, friendship, and siblings. I found it carried a great message for people regarding texting stuff to others. Really drives home a good lesson to people about that. I actually would recom...

    Oooooookay. I have some thoughts. I haven't written an in-depth review in a while. So please, bear with me, people. Stay tuned for special highlighted quotes at the end (because this book is full of 'em). I liked this. Mainly because it gave me warm and fuzzies, without being ov...

    this was SO CUTE I didn't realize how seriously in need of light-hearted contemporary I was, but man. The situation was dire. & this was the exact amount of cute romance, exciting travels and fun (but not verbose) writing that I needed. I loved the main character and love(is...

    after reading ?love and gelato? last year, jenna evans welch became an auto-buy author for me. pretty brave to do only after her debut, but i am so happy this didnt disappoint. true to her previous work, ?love and luck? was the perfect mix of summer, adventure, growing up, and ...

    I have always been drawn to road trip novels, especially international road trip novels, so I was very excited when I heard about the release of Love & Luck by Jenna Evans Welch. This is a unique story in which the main character uses a guide book to get over heartbreak, and I love...

    3.5 stars. Two years ago, I read a wonderful story titled Love & Gelato. It introduced me to gelato, a very succulent human invention, and quite a swoon-worthy Italian ? Ren. I couldn?t wait to read more from this author. So when I had the opportunity to read Love &am...

    This book serves as a reminder that not all characters from a previous novel require a story of their own (the other being Leah on the Offbeat). Pros : 1. I enjoyed the guidebook bits in-between chapters. Witty. Short. Fast-paced. Cons : 1. Constant Sibling Bickering . This...

    MY RATING: 4/5 STARS I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This is my first Jenna Evans Welch book despite me having a copy of her famous novel, Love & Gelato that swept the nation and bookstagram feeds of all your friends. From my brief u...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars I didn't think Welch would be able to delight me in quite the same way she did with Love & Gelato, but she did! This book took me on a fantastic trip through Ireland, that was filled with friends, family, and fun. Prior to their trip to Ireland, Addie and he...

    I. LOVE. BOOKS ABOUT SIBLINGS. Books about romance? Meh. Who cares. Every YA book and its mother (not sure how the genealogy of YA literature works but still) has a romance. Most of them are bad. A couple of them are good. But it doesn't even matter because there are more romance pl...

    Wat een heerlijke contemporary! Ik had ook al zo genoten van Love & gelato, dus ik keek enorm uit naar deze. En ze stelt niet teleur! Centrale thema's in dit boek: een gebroken hart, broer-zus liefde en vriendschap. En dat zijn topthema's. Dit is niet je standaard fluffy contemp...

    3/25/18 Love and Luck is an easy quick read that will pull you out of a reading slump instantly. I think what sets this book apart from any romance filled contemporary is the little excerpts fromThe guidebook lady, it enhanced the narrative style, as it kept me engrossed. ...

    **3.5-stars** When Addie embarks on a family trip to Ireland for her Aunt's destination wedding, she couldn't be happier to get out of town. It has been the worst summer of her life for dramatic reasons unknown to the reader for pretty much the entire book. The plan is that...

    4 stars I really enjoyed this one! There was a lot to love. A while back, I picked up Welch's Love & Gelato and really enjoyed that one too. There was so much fun in it--I loved seeing Italy, I thought the romance was really adorable, and I loved the themes about dealing with...

    Anyone who hasn?t gotten hurt is either a liar or a robot... This was not the cute-sy book I was expecting. This was a book about overcoming heartbreak. And it was exactly what I needed after having my soul crushed by King's Cage. can?t outsmart heartache. It has no...

    I think it's cool how Jenna Evans Welch is Richard Paul Evans' daughter. Did you know that? ?? I wasn't crazy about the previous book, Love & Gelato (though it was kinda cute at parts. And the setting? *heart eyes*). I think I'm willing to give this one a try, though! ...

    You know, a little bit ago I was doing a Top Ten Tuesday post on my blog about combining two books together, and I was thinking of how amazing it would be to have something like Love and Gelato combined with Matson's Amy and Roger to have this epic road trip book in Italy. And then I r...
