    What you've come to expect of a Goo rom-com: great main characters, a fun premise with a female K-Pop star and a boy who believes his only way to work on his photography is through becoming a leading paparazzo, and set over the course of just a weekend. It's light and funny. Maybe not ...

    I just love Maurene Goo books so much! They?re like what i love about my favorite korean dramas, but in book form. This one was no exception. I adored the characters and the whole exploration of going after your dreams vs just going after achievement (honestly, needed that rn in my o...

    3.5 stars I guess I should stop rolling my eyes at these one-day romances. I now have liked both The Sun Is Also a Star and Somewhere Only We Know. Both times I had started the books with skepticism and then slowly surrendered to the almost-insta-love. Not sure if what happens in th...

    ?Gobaek.? She paused. ?Isn?t it interesting that Koreans have a specific word for that? Because we understand that even saying you like someone is meaningful. In America, the moment is sealed by like, sex or some dramatic love confession. But in Korea, ?I like you.? That?...

    3 stars, and I?d specifically recommend this one to read if you enjoy fluffy (and maybe a little over the top) Korean dramas. There?s a particular aspect that bothered me at the start of this story, but otherwise, very cute, very sweet contemporary story. ...

    I really loved Maurene Goo's previous novel, The Way You Make Me Feel, so I had been highly anticipating Somewhere Only We Know. This is the first book Maurene has written that's told in dual perspectives, instead of being told solely by the heroine, and I have to say that I missed the...

    Somewhere Only We Know is a modern retelling of Roman Holiday. Instead of featuring a royal princess, the novel follows the story of Lucky, who's an International Kpop star. After a jam-packed schedule, she went out of her hotel in search of hamburger. She ended up meeting Jack, w...

    2.5 - I didn?t really have high hopes for this book, the premise seemed super cheesy and I didn?t enjoy the other book I had tried from Maureen Goo, I Believe in a Thing Called Love. But I wanted to give this a try to see how kpop was going to be represented in a YA book??? a...

    I had really enjoyed Maurene?s previous book and after reading this synopsis, I was eager to get into it. I liked Lucky and Jack well enough. They?re both good people struggling with what they want to do and in a random occurrence, find a spark. The banter between them was cute...

    Things I Liked ? This book feels sooo much like a kdrama and I was LIVING for it! I need Netflix to make an adaptation ASAP. ? The characters! Maurene Goo has always had strong female leads, but I?ve always felt her love interests were severely lacking. This was dual perspecti...

    Thank you, Macmillan, for giving me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. You're not the first person to assume that K-pop artists don't actually know anything about music. We don't go through that training because we like the fashion. I'm pretty torn about Mauren...

    3.5 This book follows two main characters: Lucky, a Korean pop star, and Jack, who is interested in photography and has a side job working as a paparazzi. The story is set in Hong Kong right after Lucky has ended her tour in Asia and she?s staying at a hotel but is having trouble ...

    WE DON'T DESERVE SUCH PERFECT, CUTE, SWOONY BOOKS but dear lord I am so happy they exist and I can read them. If you don't love Jack and Lucky as much as I do after reading this book I'm not sure we can be friends anymore. (JK but also not.) ...

    "At the end of today was a goodbye. Anything that could grow between us would be gone within hours, ephemeral and faded before it could even begin. We were like the stars seen from Earth- a memory of something that was already finished." OOOOHH MY GOD. OH MY GOD. WOW. I am letting e...

    Maurene Goo is just such a treat. Her stories never fail to suck me right in and fill me with warmth and giddiness. This particular story of her centered around the world of K-pop which I recently dipped my toe into, and I absolutely adored her rendition of that particular career. ...

    MY RATING: 1.5/5 STARS I received an ARC from Raincoast books in exchange for a honest review. Honestly, I love what Maurene Goo represents because she's an Asian American author who writes YA contemporaries representing the Asian community but this book was a huge let down. I...

    Thank you, Maurene Goo, for putting this HUGE smile on my face! Somewhere Only We Know was an absolute delight. I had previously read articles calling this "a modern-day Roman Holiday", and I must admit, Goo did a fantastic job capturing the essence of the original story, while making ...

    DNF-ing this at 23% because it's too cringey for me. They just met and they already have these "adorable cliche scenes" and I can see the beginning of insta-love even though there's no chemistry. Every interaction between them is too "cutesy" and I can't help but roll my eyes. Also, ev...
