    ARC received from the publisher via Netgalley for a fair review When Merilee transfers from an all girls school to Reginald R. Hero High she thinks it just might be the place she might meet her personal hero. That is, if they can live up to all the bookish boyfriends she's forever d...

    An absolutely adorable read, following a girl named Merrilee who believes boys are better in books. Until those boys start showing up at school and maybe...aren't as great as she believes them to be. No need to know Austen to love this, though I suspect readers who are fans of Pride...

    Oh. My. GOODNESS!! This book is perfection. I've been a big fan of Schmidt's work since SEND ME A SIGN, and this is Peak Schmidt. The main character, Merrilee, is short, bubbly, and with her nose always in a book, Merri believes in love, romance, and true love's kiss. Which isn't entir...

    If ever I've related more to a character in a YA novel, that character would have to be Merrilee. Never have I laughed and smiled my way through a story so much, simply because I got it. I could feel it because in some ways, I've lived it, maybe not as an adult but definitely as a teen...

    That was adorable and loads of fun! Merrilee?s enthusiasm for all things books, boys, and swoon-worthy romance was palpable. (And completely relatable.) Do your-bookish-self a favor and read it. *Thank you to Abrams for providing a copy in exchange for an honest review.* ...

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. As far as sixteen year-old Merrilee is concerned, boys in books are much better than boys in real life. What she wouldn't give to have a real boy sweep her off of her feet into a whirlwind romance like her favorite b...

    This was so cheesy and cutesy. I did like a lot of the literary references and what not but overall it was just way over the top. ...

    Probably 3.5 stars. Two chapters in I was ready to give up on this book. I honestly didn't believe I could read a whole book from this protagonist's point of view. The voice felt forced. The writing was self-conscious. And I wasn't engaged. As I progressed the writing became less ob...

    This book was good! It had really good writing, a decently developed plot and some fascinating notions towards the importance of books and what they can give an individual, and how sometimes life can be just like a book (or not)! The only issue I had with this book was that it just...

    Going into this book, I was hoping for a cute and fluffy contemporary novel, and that is exactly what I got! This book was as sweet as cotton candy, which was adorable and fun. At first, I did have a hard time getting into this book because it was a bit slow and the characters felt...

    Who wouldn?t want a date with Darcy? I don?t know? I was never Darcy?s kind of girl (I think Adrian Ivashkov would suit me better) but I?d still want to go on a date with Darcy, just like probably every bookish girl in this world would. Yet, our main protagonist Marrilee had...

    Okay. I was immediately attracted to Bookish Boyfriends. The premise just sounded way too cute, and I knew that if it was half as adorable as it sounded, I'd be on board. I had NO IDEA how much I would love this book. The writing is so. effing. cute. Fun, hilarious, intelligent. The...

    Okay so my book club and I picked this book and I had originally been super excited for it because this is literally any romance reader's dream, but I'm not too sure how I'm feeling about it. It was good and cute - I don't know where I checked out though. Maybe I never checked into bei...

    Rating: 3.5 Stars I know I have uttered the phrase "boys are better in books" many times, but Merri finds out that maybe her romance heroes were not as wonderful as they seemed on the page, when a real life Romeo begins romancing her. ? Pro: Merrilee was an utterly adorable her...

    "Too bad book boyfriends gave paper cuts when you tried to snuggle. We have all been in this position where we fall in love and swoon over the dreamy man/woman in a book. You just imagine their arms wrapped around you on the toughest of days and they will make it all better. Sigh! ...

    Merrilee Campbell is the star of this young adult contemporary romance read in which this somewhat of a book nerd teen longs for romance like she's read in the classics. Merri is transferring to a new school with her best friend and younger sister and hopes that this year will be diffe...

    I wanted to like this book so BADLY! Unfortunately most things about it annoyed me and made me roll my eyes so hard that I almost saw my brain. 1. Names. Merilee, Monroe, FIELDING. Bc YA apparently. 2. The main character is so slappable it's not funny anymore. She's supposed to be ...

    I received this book for free via NetGalley in exchange for a review. I actually really enjoyed this book! I picked it up at first because, come on, how many times had I thought boys are better in books? I just owed it to myself. Merrilee is such a fun main character. She?s d...

    A book about bookish boyfriends that is called Bookish Boyfriends which will probably include a bookish boyfriend to add to an ever-growing list of my bookish boyfriends and that enables me to use the phrase 'Bookish Boyfriends' as often in one sentence as I just did and also has a ref...

    This was a very cute, light read! Although I did find it kind of boring at times, and the first half of the book definitely lacked the substance I was hoping for. I feel like in the beginning the protagonist lacked something and that made it hard to connect with her and the story. Howe...

    Man, I was so excited for this novel! I mean who can go wrong with a title like that. Well it did go wrong in a few ways unfortunately. I thought it was cute and fun even though it was a bit slow and it just ended all messy and I can't even describe my feels for this book besides being...

    It was the last day of summer when I finished this book. According to my mom, I was supposed to sleep early and get up early the next day. But at that time, I was 65% done with this book which meant I could finish it that night. Staying up until midnight just to finish a book is no sur...
