The Bookworm Crush | By Lisa Brown Roberts
YA Romance | Book Review
Narrative and Plot
The Bookworm Crush is a YA romance with the bookworm falling for the popular guy with a side of fake dating trope. It is adorable and light hearted. The voice is pretty evocative which keeps you going.
The pacing is great. That’s to say I finished it in two days. It has baking , books, and young love. What more can you ask for?
Characters and Conflicts
Toff has been Amy’s childhood crush and when he becomes her competition coach in the summer for a contest, things change. Toff is dealing with his own issues regarding his future and family. As far as the characters go, this is about two sweet teenagers who slowly fall for each other.
The conflict is pretty much your YA romance cliché but like I mentioned before it is adorable , fluffy and innocent. It would make for a great beach read particularly if you’re into surfing. The ensemble cast compliment the story very well. And not to mention, the whole book lover theme going on. Bookish people love to read about other bookworms. So that’s a win.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. It was a quick one time read for me. I liked the setting, the romance and the whole light optimistic vibe of the story. If you are looking for a quick beach read in the genre, give it a go.
