Love & Luck Reviews
I'm going to put this out there. Jenna Evans Welch you have now become a must read author for me girl. Meaning if you write your version of the phone book...it's a must read for me 😂.
Last November I read Love & Gelato (read it if you have not already 😃)and I fell in love. I was a little concerned going in to Love & Luck simply because....y'all know where I'm coming from...it might not be as good as the first 😮.
Dare I say it? It might be better. I loved it. Welch has an incredi ...more
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 recommend for teens to read this just for that very awful life lesson. The story is wonderful and to put it short, I am ready to go visit Ireland! Who’s in??!!
My quick and simple overall: short, lovely story about young lov ...more
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).
1. I enjoyed the guidebook bits in-between chapters. Witty. Short. Fast-paced.
1. Constant Sibling Bickering . This plot point went on much too long.
2. Boring Characters . I found them unbelievably tedious, which made my first con even more annoying. I would have been more lenient if they were teens deserving of a following.
3. Forced Att ...more
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 from The guidebook lady, it enhanced the narrative style, as it kept me engrossed.
Addie was highly relatable, as she struggles emotionally and finding out who she is. It was lots of fun to read about a family relationship. It was adorable and fun to see the bickering. It was written splendidly and resembled ...more
I WILL READ ANYTHING THIS WOMAN WRITES. MY EXCITEMENT FOR THIS BOOK IS AT UNHEALTHY LEVELS.
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 grief.
Love & Luck definitely has a lot of similarities, but it's also its own category, which is honestly a good thing. I was almost hoping that it would be really similar to Love & Gelato, just in Ireland instead ...more
I am so surprised! Love and gelato was a solid 4 stars but this book was a solid 5 stars!😱😱 I loved it. The characters were great, I loved the plot, and themes were so empowering and a great example to teen girls😭😭
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 overloaded with love. This book focused more on the love that accompanies family and friendship, and that's sorely lacking in YA these days. (Not every story needs a bad boy who become the obvious love interest, okay people? ...more
