    It breaks my heart a little to say this, and rate this book with only a three, but this is my least favourite Millsy. I think if you have enjoyed a Mills before, you'll still enjoy this, too. But it isn't a favourite, I doubt I'll reread, and those are things I've never said before when speaking of her work. But that's okay! Not every book can, or will, be a winner. And I'm sure this'll be someone's favourite. It's just not mine.Full review to co...

    3.5 starsI loved the start of this but I didn't like the ending. It was so fun to read tho I really couldn't stop!This happened to me so many times and I should be upset that I loved this so much only to be disappointed by the end but I'm really not.I loved every character in this but especially Jaime, he was one of the sweetest boys I ever read about and I love him! I wish we had his pov and I would scream my lungs out if we get a book totally a...

    i need you all to know that this book caused my depression because (a) who allowed emma mills to create characters and relationships that i become wholly attached to and then like... end the book... ... ,, .., (b) i forgot how absolutely emo i can get over childhood-friends-to-lovers like ???? ??? ??? ?? ? (c) this made me feel painfully sad that my life isn't as delightful and filled with clever banter as these characters (d) this is officially ...

    This was adorably cute and I loved the friendship group throughout the entire book! Like all Emma Mills books, Lucky Caller manages to perfectly balance the drama and the heart to create a world you don't want to leave. The relationships in this story just completely hook you - Nina's relationships with her siblings, her relationship with her broadcasting group, with her parents - it just all so good! Plus the romance was an adorable second chanc...

    I hope Emma Mills never ever stops writing; her books are like sunny June afternoons on the hill outside my house, like Christmas mornings, like waffles on Sundays. Longer review to come closer to the pub date.

    ”You gotta keep trying if you want to be the lucky caller.”Lucky Caller by Emma Mills made me happy. I know that sounds like a simple thing to say, but in my book...it’s pretty darn huge! Fans, friends (old and new), sisters, parents, Hapless Princes (well just the one), and love fill the pages of this book. Adorable, awkward, still beating after all this time kind of love!Our story begins with Nina and Jaime, childhood friends that for som...

    There are many reasons why Emma Mills is one of my favorite YA authors, and this book is just one of them.Once again, I have finished reading an Emma Mills book, and I was left floating on a cloud of happiness. Seriously, this was me, after reading Lucky Caller:I guess, the plot of this story was Nina's radio show, and how a plan to attract more listeners sort of took on a life of its own. It was quite hilarious, did a nice job driving the story,...

    I just love Emma Mills so much, you guys. This was swoony and lovely and funny in all the right ways. I stayed up late to finish it and then re-read all of the kissy bits this morning. That's how you know it's good.

    4.5 starsAs usual, how can I even quantify my love for an Emma Mills book into words? It’s impossible, really. I mean, I’ve tried, but I don’t think they’re completely accurate depictions of what these books mean to me. They’re so special and close to my heart, and Lucky Caller was no exception. In fact, there were so many small personal details (names, etc.) that felt like they were taken from my life that I don’t even feel comfortab...

    Another amazing Emma Mills book right when I needed it. What I love about her stories is that on the surface, they seem sort of no frills. Lucky Caller is sort of direct in its way. The story focuses on Nina and her family, her friendship with Jamie and her radio class. Obviously the story is so much bigger than those three things, and yet the book has sort of razor focus that makes the story skip by so quickly.What you'll get from this book: hum...

    This book made me want to read everything Emma Mills has ever written. It was so sweet and cute and had such good vibes to it. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a cute, fun read. It honestly kinda reminded me of radio rebel a little bit and I was living for it. Also this cover is to die for excusez-moi mam

    Nina kind of has a lot going on. Her mom is getting engaged, her big sister is struggling with college, and she is about to tackle her school's favorite radio broadcasting class with the shadow of her famous radio DJ dad hanging over her head. Big changes are coming all over the place, and she is just not feeling any of it. Then, to add insult to injury, her radio class teacher puts her in a group with her former best guy friend who she hasn't re...

    I received a physical ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewIf you like this, you should read LUCKY CALLER: - weddings (i.e. Save the Date by Morgan Matson)- Bob Ross - a strong sister dynamic (like TATBILB)- the childhood friends to lovers trope- the 90's - podcast/radio elements- an apartment setting (characters home)- childhood flashbacks - theater - Foolish Hearts...the list could go on, but these are just some great elements...
