  • Em (RunawayWithDreamthieves)
    First of all, who let me get so emotionally invested in this book that not only was I incapable of putting it down but I also wanted to flip back to its first chapter as soon as I had read the last line??This book was like a face mask for my soul. And I think it could really use an extra page or two. Scratch that, maybe it's me, I just need more pages of: ✨ girls loving girls✨ platonic displays of affection between boys✨ siblings bonding ov...

    December Owlcrate ♥ Close-us and descriptions in the link below picture. MORE PICSOMG! Stick me with a fork, I'm done! I gave this book 5 freaking stars because it made me feel all fluffy inside and I need some fluff because I'm losing my stuffing! < -- And my mind! I loved it so much! I thought I wouldn't like it. Lol, just goes to show what I know! I love all of the characters! Claudia is such a wonderful person! She has a best friend Zoe tha...

    Foolish Hearts follows Claudia, who, after accidentally witnessing the great breakup of Her School’s Popular Sapphic Couple, is forced into a rivalry with the exceptionally closed-off and hurt Iris. Okay, first of all, this book made me so deeply fucking happy. like, on a level of my soul I did not know existed I am happy. It was a weirdly emotionally cathartic read for me because it’s a happy book, but it also doesn’t shy away from the fac...

    Reread on January 23 2018: I loved it even more than the first time. I fell in love with all of the characters so much more. This has become one of my favourite contemporaries of all time.Original review, posted on May 8 2017: Oh my gosh, this book was so fantastic! I feel so light and happy after reading it. It may just be the funniest book I've ever read...I honestly don't think I've ever laughed out loud so much while reading a book like I did...

    I'm between 3.5 and 4 stars on this one.Every so often, after I've read a number of thrillers, crime novels, or even emotionally draining books in a row, I seek out what I like to call a "literary palate-cleanser," essentially a book which appears to be a little bit lighter in tone and one which won't have me eyeing my neighbors and delivery men, expecting a crime to break out.The "palate-cleanser" term isn't meant to be a disparaging one—somet...

    Full review posted:Emma Mills must have like a special sauce she consumes before writing a book bc the way shes able to craft these fluffy, emotional, heartwarming stories with important undertones is truly a work of art. THERE’S SO MANY AMAZING ASPECTS TO THIS BOOK WHERE DO I START???1. fantastic sibling rep: His eyes light up upon seeing the cookies. “Did you make them?”“My sister did. They’re just the break-and-bake kind.”“Those...

    This was so delightful. I sat down intending to read 50 pages and instead I read 270. I honestly cannot deal with how cute this book was gahhhhAlso, and I don’t really intend to type up a full review of this, but I just have to say: thank GOD for this book about girls who are friends with each other and aren’t competitive or jealous of their friends having friends. Thank god for these women being funny and loving and supportive. I love them. ...

    4.5/5 stars"You need Google Maps to find your way out of my eyes, or at least a comparable navigation app"Hello, hi, I'm coming to you from riding the longest a roller coaster ride of emotions of 2018.Yes, we are like 4 days into the new year, but that's beside the point.This book was so damn cute!I read this book in almost one sitting, and I say almost, because for some unknown reason my boss thought my day job was more important than reading???...

    I genuinely can’t for the life of me remember the last time I so thoroughly enjoyed a YA contemporary – brb trying to assemble the pieces of my heart that got lost in this book.Blog ¦ Bloglovin’ ¦ Tumblr ¦ Instagram

    3.5 stars. This is a real page-turner, perfect for reluctant teens. Granted, it’s light and not the kind of read that will change the way you look at the world, but it will give you a few good laughs, warm your heart for sure and possibly encourage you to get closer to someone you care about.Claudia didn’t mean to, but she overheard a breakup scene between Iris and Paige, who form the cutest couple in her school. Because she’s been discover...

    i wish could take the all of the warm fluffy feels of this book and fashion them into a cosy jumper to comfort my soul for the rest of my days. emma mills has perfected the art of YA contemporary. 4 stars
  • Maureen
    4.5/5 starsI THINK THIS IS MY FAVORITE EMMA MILLS BOOK? IDK. She has become an auto-buy author for me because she is so great at writing great characters and witty dialogue. When Claudia accidentally overhears the breakup of the power couple of their all-girls school and is found out by Iris, the meanest girl she knows, she's pretty sure her school life as she knows it is going to end. BUT she ends up becoming friends with Iris who is the definit...

    Trigger Warnings: panic attack, grand mal seizure mentionsFIND THIS REVIEW FOR FOOLISH HEARTS HERE. SUBSCRIBE TO MY BLOG TO SEE ALL MY REVIEWS FIRSTI went into Foolish Hearts with literally no expectations. I didn’t know what I was going to get from this book but I figured a YA contemporary was something that would help me pass the time until I worked out what I did want to read. I was so wrong. This book is a masterpiece. I read it incredibly ...

    “In truth, we are rarely all on the same page. More often than not, they're all on one page, and I'm on a completely different one.”This was a really nice, heartwarming read. Claudia was annoying at times, and I didn't understand the gaming thing but otherwise, I really enjoyed it. The characters that stood out to me most in this book were Iris, Claudia, and Gideon. Claudia's brother, her other friend, and the side characters didn't feel impo...
  • Brooke — brooklynnnnereads
    This was such an enjoyable novel to read!Prior to reading this novel, I had not read anything or heard of anything written by Emma Mills before. Due to that, I was unreasonably apprehensive going into this novel and I didn't have high expectations but I'm happy to say that I was wrong and that.....I LOVED it. I could go on endlessly about the author's style of writing. It was the perfect fit to me as a reader. The writing and story flowed so well...
  • Julie Zantopoulos
    I legit don’t know if I read the same book everyone else did. I’m so confused by the hype. Let’s start off this review by saying I’m clearly not the target demographic but also f*ck that cause the target demographic is smarter than this, too. Claudia (it took me a solid 75% of the book to even remember her name) is a naive, idiotic, and childish MC. She’s truly awful the majority of the damn book. She’s cruel to the love interest-like...
  • Marty :} (thecursedbooks)
    I want to thank Macmillan US for providing me with this copy of Foolish Hearts. This didn’t influence my rating or my review in any way.I can’t believe I actually enjoyed my first physical ARC. With my luck, I was certain I would absolutely hate it. BUUUT, I absolutely adored it, if I could give Foolish Hearts – a thousand stars, I would. I hugged this book a hundred times and I laughed so much even though I was nursing a cold. I mean it, i...

    "I don't want to bond. I specifically want to not bond. What is the opposite of bond?""Alienate?""I want to alienate.""Well, you're pretty good at it."My heart is just so full right now guys. I can't even. My congested head did not appreciate the five bouts of crying but there was an even greater amount of literal laughing out loud that happened so I'll pop an extra sinus med for my troubles and call it a day. It was totally worth it anyway.>Gide...

    “In truth, we are rarely all on the same page. More often than not, they're all on one page, and I'm on a completely different one.” This is the first Emma Mills book I've ever had the pleasure to read and I have to say I'm completely blown away! Foolish Hearts is a beautiful and honest story about love, friendship, forgiveness and acceptance, along with a clever parallel between the cast of Foolish Hearts and the cast of Shakespearean mast...
  • Sue (Hollywood News Source)
    It's been a while since a book made me swoon like really swoon and guffaw. Foolish Hearts grabbed me from the very start. If you want to laugh and fall in love with the characters, I would recommend this book.It's a great reminder for me, who haven't been able to churn YA for awhile, that there's still magic in this genre.
  • Zoe Wilson (yerabooknerdzoe)
    This was such a cute book! It was a super quick read, but it was exactly what I needed. These characters weren't nearly as ridiculous as many I've read lately in YA contemporaries which is such a breath of fresh air. Fun fact, I'm always nervous about reading a book with a character named Zoe, just because I'm worried it will be a stupid character and I'm stuck picturing myself in her place. This Zoe was awesome. She was funny, down-to-earth, and...

    4 stars. I love Emma Mills' books! If I ever change my mind about YA contemporary, it'll be because of her and Kasie West. :D***Review to come***
  • Stacee
    This is officially my favorite book from Emma and going on my top books of the year. I love love loved Claudia. She’s snarky af and her inner monologue was fantastic. Gideon is adorable and goofy and the two of them were so much fun together. Really, the entire cast of characters is perfection. Plot wise, it was lovely. There are a few different plot threads, but it all went together so seamlessly. And somehow I’m completely okay with Emma’...

    I was about to give this book 4 stars and then I realized this book managed to make me cry over it (albeit, it was only like 3 tears but still), which I haven't managed doing over a book in 4 effing years.And not only that, but I cried because I was happy????? which has never happened to me over a book. like sure, I squeal, but crying??? I was just so happy over the happiness of these characters that literal tears rolled down my face like the sap...
  • Michelle (Pink Polka Dot Books)
    This book practically gave me a toothache it was so sweet. Emma Mills writes the most adorable characters in YA and you all should be reading her. 💜💜This book is rainbow glitter falling from cotton candy clouds. It's sunshine rays bursting out of a unicorn's horn. I'm 100% convinced that Emma Mills mixes happiness into her ink when she prints these books because there is no way you could read this book and not feel happy all over.Claudia, o...
