Reviews Foolish Hearts

  • Lola Reviewer
    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...

    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...

    I feel like every time I finish an Emma Mills book I'm going to be saying it's my favorite... but OMG THIS BOOK WAS PERFECTION! I love it so much! No one does friendships and family like Emma and If you don't have this on your TBR list yet DO IT NOW!! FULL REVIEW I just love Emma Mills! I don’t know how it’s possible, but with each book she writes I find myself loving the new characters more than the last and that’s saying a lot because I a...

    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 this one. Bahhhhhh! SO GOOD.

    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***
  • Lisa
    Perfectly funny. Incredibly moving. This book captures the essence of living in the inbetween of staying put and moving on. Change in all its scary glory. But mostly it's about friendships, boy bands and Shakespeare. LOVE.Highly recommended

    You know that incredible feeling you get when you read the right book at the right time? And that incredible feeling you get when you encounter a character you find yourself identifying with in a really strong way? Well, combine those two feelings into one gigantic ball topped with giddiness, and swoons, and amusement, and you may find yourself with an idea of how much I loved FOOLISH HEARTS.I loved the cast of characters, and I loved the relatio...

    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 don't understand how it's even possible Emma Mills managed to write a cast I love even more than the one in THIS ADVENTURE ENDS but I honestly loved this book so much I cried and then hugged it, because I'm really cool. I don't know if this is my new favorite book of the year but I do know it's in the top five. Reading it, I honestly can't believe how few YA contemps with a teen girl protag are about learning to love and value yourself and see ...

    *dies* Just leave me here, guys. Lying here contemplating how absolutely perfect that book was. Holy shit, seriously, I need a minute.
  • Ashley Blake
    This was so good, I'm a little miffed that it had to end. I could read this voice and these characters forever. I don't even care what they do.
  • Nikki (Book Allure)
    Really enjoyed this one!!! Review to come soon
  • Jane
    4.5 stars. Pretty sure Emma Mills is my favorite contemporary author at this point.
  • Kerri
    4.5 stars. This is my first Emma Mills book and I am pleased to say that I get the hype. This was fricken great. I loved all of the characters and the themes, and how seemingly disparate plot points (boy band love, online gaming, Shakespeare, break-ups, best friend drama, family dynamics) all blended together perfectly. I laughed out loud multiple times and definitely let out more than a few squeals of feels. Though I'm not usually for reads wher...
  • Marochka
    Невероятно милая, забавная, слегка, конечно, наивная (но в хорошем смысле этого слова), легкая и замечательная книга. Автор умеет расслабить и при этом заинтересовать читателя. Хорошая книга для подростков, практически идеальная. Возможно, и не са...
  • Kristen
    This was SO cute! And such a quick read. The characters were a lot of fun though some of Claudia’s decisions had me want to shake her 😂 I would say she acted realistically but it was hard to see her make mistakes. Emma Mills is such a great story teller! Looking forward to her next book
  • Zoey Talbon
    4.5 stars. Emma Mills books just make me so happy 😭
  • Brittany
    Adorable. Of course.I always love how Emma's books have a strong focus on family and friendship. The romance is there, in a slow burn way.
  • Lexi
    Well that was ridiculously cute.
  • Krys
    Fast and fun and everything you want for a quick-read sitting. If you like contemporary YA, MMORPG gaming, boy band fanaticism, broken hearts and hopeful possibilities, LGBT undertones, old vs. new friendships, and private school dynamics, this book is made for you. If none of that appeals, there is a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream to keep your interest. Theatre geeks unite!
  • Cassie
    Well Emma Mills has done it again. I give this book ALL of the stars. Full review to come.
  • Holly
    I received an advanced reader's copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This book is exactly what I needed right now. It's a light, cute read that also has depth to it. It all starts when Claudia accidentally overhears the breakup of the school's power couple and then finds herself on the wrong side of the toughest girl in school. When the two get paired up for a school project, Claudia is sure that things will end i...
