Seventeen-year-old Elyse hates Valentine's Day. This makes working at the mall gift store in February difficult. Elyse's goal: avoid all romance. But falling in love is the one thing she can't control...
I’m not afraid to admit that when this book showed up on my doorstep, I glared at it and was really pessimistic. I’m not a Valentines Day person at all. I don’t have anything against the people who love it, but it just isn’t my cup of tea. So I just dismissed this book and stuck it on my shelf without any thoughts of picking it up again.
But then came the day when I wanted something cute and small to read. I love it when books prove me wrong. I thought that Rhymes with Cupid would be some cute little book that wasn’t written well. It wasn’t. At all. I mean yes, this book is small and yes, this book is cute. But it was written well. Really well. I was sucked in and I didn’t stop reading until I reached the last sentence.
I’m telling you now lovely blog readers- never judge a book by the cover. It will come back to bite you in the butt. Anna Humphrey can write really well. I really want to read another book by her just so I can get lost in her cute and well-spun world again.
I can relate to Elyse. We both are totally negative when it comes to lovey-dovey stuff. I loved watching her grow as a character and keep proving herself wrong. There were times when I wanted to go into the story and tell her
“go after him, girl” “Snap out of it!”. She was so incredibly clueless at times, it was amusing.
Overall, Anna Humphrey surprised me in the best way possible. She proved me wrong and made me realize just how much of a mushy-book-person I am. Rhymes with Cupid was bittersweet and oh-so-addicting!
