Hello, everybody! It’s time for another Throwback Thursday post 🙂
Throwback Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Renee at It’s Book Talk and is a way to share some of your old favorites as well as sharing books that you want to read that were published over a year ago. This is a great way to bring some of your old favorites back to life.
If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board, and you’re welcome to use Renee’s pic as well. If you’d just link back to her@It’s Book Talk she’d so appreciate it!
The book that I’m going to share with you today is Chat Love by Justine Faeth (Published on April 1st, 2012)
City girl Lucia is having trouble finding a man. With a few nudges from her friends, she decides to try out Chat Love, an online dating service for New Yorkers. Hilarity ensues with one disastrous date after another…where do these men come from? Mars? Certainly not Manhattan! She finally meets someone from work who is almost perfect, but decides to move on as he’s still seeing other women. She keeps in contact with a man named Jack on the Chat Love site. Could he be the one? What about her love interest at work? Just like the lovable cast of characters from Sex and the City, Lucia is Carrie, a stylish woman who has found her “Mr. Big” but can’t seem to get him to commit. Danni is Samantha, who loves to have fun and is wild and promiscuous. Autumn is Charlotte, desperate to meet the right man and settle down. Skyler is Miranda, level-headed and quick to offer advice. Will these ladies ever find love? Will Lucia find her man? Chat Love will give you something to talk about! (Goodreads)
I read this book about a year and two months ago and remember enjoying it so much.
I didn’t set off reading this book with high expectations, but I soon found that this book was surprisingly riveting and entertaining to read.
Here’s the review that I posted back then. Pardon it not being thorough and relatively short lol
It was a quick, incredibly riveting read; I finished reading it in two days which doesn’t happen to me so often – a testament that shows how captivating the book is. The plot was well-written and it was just so much fun to read!
The try and error part that describes the ups and downs of the dating site is just hilarious. Although the overall plot was a bit predictable, especially I could foresee the spark between the main two characters from miles away and knew all too well how they were going to end up, I just couldn’t stop turning pages. I got completely hooked on this funny, exhilarating love story.
One drawback – well, it probably can’t be seen as a drawback anyway, it’s more like my personal pet peeve – is that I don’t like people who drive themselves in a state of despair for no reason, even when the situation says the otherwise; I was gritting my teeth seeing Lucia feel down in the dumps after the shocking revelation up until she finally comes to her senses, and I had a strong urge to nudge her to admit her own feelings and follow her heart.
Like I said, some may find the plot rather predictable, but finding how all the pieces come together in the end brought a smile on my face. It was like an “a-ha!” moment.
I highly recommend reading this book. You won’t regret it.
It’s been less than a month (if my memory serves me correctly) since I kicked off this weekly meme but I’ve already found what big a havoc the whole throwback thursday wrecked with my TBR lol It just keeps adding book after book to my ever growing pile…. !!!
That being said though, you can rest assured – I have no intension whatsoever of ending this meme 😛 As long as i have books to introduce here, I’ll keep posting!
That’s it for today.
If you have read this book, let me know your thoughts in the comments.
I’d love to hear what you think of this book 🙂
Thank you so much for reading as always, I’ll see you in my next Throwback Thursday! 😀
