I DNF'd this book just because I have so many other books I must read right now. I'll come back to it, because I want to know how it ends, though I think it won't end well. ( )

Edit: lowering my rating to 3 stars, because my standards have changed since I read this.

This is honestly probably closer to like, a 3.75 or something, but that's just too complicated. So 3.5 it is.

Anyways, this was a thoroughly enjoyable read, but it really didn't have a lot to it.

I liked the characters (mostly).
Ellie was an enjoyable character to read about. She was likeable. She didn't have a ton of personality, and she wasn't anything special, but I liked her.

I had more mixed feelings on Graham. On the one hand, he had a LOT more development than Ellie, and I really liked his character. But I found his character frustrating to read about, because of his attitude towards his acting. This was purely a personal thing, but I had a hard time with it. Because I really love acting, and am very frustrated with the size of my roles (How is it that the eight year olds get more lines than me? I'm not THAT bad of an actor.), so reading about someone who was getting leading roles in movies, but who only finds acting sort of enjoyable, and doesn't put a lot of effort into his acting, and is always complaining about being famous, was really irritating. Like, I do get that being famous probably sort of sucks. BUT, he's getting LEAD ROLES IN MOVIES! And yet I think he spends less time on them than I do for my FOUR LINES in a local theatre troupe composed half of 8-10 year olds. So this REALLY bothered me. It's like, I get it, you're famous, boo-hoo, BUT YOU CAN'T CHANGE THAT, SO WHY DON'T YOU SPEND SOME TIME APPRECIATING THE FACT THAT YOU'RE GETTING LEAD ROLES, INSTEAD OF COMPLAINING!!

Okay wow, that was quite a rant... I had a bit of a problem with his attitude, but it was more a personal thing, and despite this, I actually really DID like his character most of the time. I just needed to rant.

The romance was super cute, although I wish we'd gotten to see it develop more. It wasn't instalove, it was just that a lot of their development happened through their emails off the page. Which was a tad disappointing. But it was a sweet romance, and I definitely did enjoy it. Also Graham was sort of a tiny bit stalker-y... which was sort of addressed... But like, it was still just a really enjoyable romance okay?

I also absolutely LOVED the small town vibes here! It was so cozy and friendly, and it was just such a nice setting. I sort of love reading about super small towns where everybody knows each other. they're just delightful, and this one was no exception.

Also theatre vibes. Sure I didn't love Grahams attitude towards it, and I really just wish acting had played a bigger part in general, but there was this one part where they were filming, and... I think it was when they were wrapping up, and everyone was sort of giddy, and there was acting, and just that sort of excited to be done, but sad to be done, and everyone's giddy and goofy atmosphere that I know so well, and I happened to read this scene while I was in the green room waiting to go on stage, and even though it film and not live theatre, that scene was just so relatable, and the timing was perfect, and it just left me feeling so content and happy.

So yeah, this book wasn't perfect, but it was SO enjoyable, and there were a couple of things that I just absolutely loved. ( )

I really enjoyed this book, so much so that I added it to my favorites. I like the small town vibe and how both down to earth the main characters are. I would've preferred an epilogue that ties up all the loose ends. But rhe author cleverly followed it up with a novella, which I hope to get my hands on so I can find out what happens to Ellie and Graham. ( )

This is a fun little book. It's very reminiscent of You've Got Mail. It has that light and fun flavor to it. It doesn't have that extra magic that The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight does but it was still fun and well worth the read. I spent a Saturday afternoon sitting in the sun on the back porch reading this book and it was a perfect afternoon. I will definitely be reading everything by Jennifer E. Smith in the future. ( )

It was not all that different from the circus, and it came to town in much the same way. Only instead of elephants and giraffes, there were cameras and microphones.
