    Absolutely delightful. Cheesy, for sure, but in the way that rom coms and Hallmark movies are the best kind of saccharine. Annie can be frustrating at times (and she definitely mentions Tom Hanks a tad too much), but this story had me grinning from ear to ear. Full of lovable character...

    When I saw this title I almost peed myself. I have TOTALLY been waiting for Tom Hanks. Don't tell my husband...oh wait. He would totally dump my hateful self for Jennifer Aniston so I am not feeling too bad. This book sounds like pure fun. Annie spends her days dreaming abou...

    For more reviews and book related chat check out my blog Rom Coms are my favourite type of film, but in particular I adore those starring Tom Hanks. I mean I named my dog after the dog in 'You've Got Mail' because that film is just everything; Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan as warring book s...

    Waiting for Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey is a 2019 Berkley publication. An adorable ode to classic Rom-Coms! I am pleased to see this book was so well received! Rom-Coms were considered circumspect back in their prime, but after a while they became the 'Barry Manilow' of movies, ...

    I'm between 4 and 4.5 stars. "...I'm starting to think that the movies I've dedicated my life to may have lied to me. Nora Ephron herself may have indirectly lied to me. Tom Hanks, as much as I've trusted him, may have lied to me. Because I have it all: the sympathetic backstory, th...

    I loved the idea of the book, not so much the execution. If you obsess about rom-coms as much as Annie, the heroine does, this book might be the right one for you. She lives and breathes rom-coms, and wants her life to be one. She actually thinks she is living the life of a rom-com ...

    ARC provided by Berkley Romance in exchange for an honest review. I really, really wanted to give this book a higher rating. It started as a 5-star read for me, then went down to four? but now I?m sitting at three. I was truly loving it up until the main character did some t...

    Okay, Waiting for Tom Hanks somewhat redeemed itself in the last 50 pages! I was planning on going with 2 stars on this because I had serious issues with the main character, Annie Cassidy. But because she kind of *air quotes* gets less annoying at the end and all the other character...

    Cliche as hell. Annie is one of the most annoying protagonists I?ve read from so far this year. She is 100% convinced that her life is a romantic comedy and that her ?Tom Hanks? will fall into her lap one day and they?ll have a ?meet cute? like in the movies. I?m a huge f...
