    Three stars for cuteness I think it suffered from being an ARC The drawings and there are many that will be included in the book were not present I would have loved to see them because they sounded hilarious I don't read a lot of young adult especially romance so maybe it's par for the course but I found it to be too predictable It doesn't stray too far from the typical boy meets girl they clash then slowly begin to understand each other cliche The awkward girl and the bad boy I can imagine this story being appealing to younger millennialsHildy and Paul have never met before they're thrown together in a 36 uestions experiment In case you're not familiar the uestions are designed for two people to get to know each other in an accelerated manner You reveal very personal thoughts and memories and get to know a stranger very intimately very uickly Paul treats it as a joke at first only having signed up to get the promised forty dollars Hildy who didn't even know she'd get paid is understandably frustrated and wants to do the uestions properly She can't deny the young man sitting across from her is attractive and intriguing but he's a pain in the buttThe experiment is derailed and looks like it's going to be a complete fail but they pick things back up after they leave A lot of the book is told interview style or through messaging We get to know about their lives and why they are the way they are as the book goes on They both made judgments about each other that may or may not be way off With 36 simple and some not so simple uestions could you fall in love? I'd recommend this to someone who wants something cute and light done in an original formatIf you've already read this one I have one thing to say you might identify with for the love of all that is holy GIVE ME THE FISH I'll take care of it I received an ARC of this book from Net Galley and Perseus Books Running Press Thank you My review is honest and unbiased

    Here is my video review for an in depth look at my thoughts did not like this book At allI thought the writing style was juvenile and failed to ground the characters and communicate genuine emotion and growth within themI thought the characters were flat cliche underdeveloped and oftentimes unnecessary to the plot And finally the plot was nearly non existent with little innovation and creativity A brilliant idea with a lot of potential but the execution failed to live up to that

    So a clumsy heroine who is shy and babbles a lot and is prone to accidents Enter the proverbial bad guy who doens't give a damn and is full of himself Follow into an interview between them from hell which makes you exit this book as fast as you can afraid this exchange is going to be the way the rest of the book is Sorry I guess this book wasn't for me I got lost as soon as the clichés began entering S

    I received an ARC of this book on a read to review basis Is there something you've dreamed of doing for a long time? Why haven't you done it? This was a good book okay Despite the bright colors in the cover there were some parts that also hit those deep moments And the writing of the romance between the two MCs was very uniueIt's just that well I'm not a fan of the writing style It didn't grip me and the only thing that was keeping me going was the plot it wasn't that uniueBUT what I really liked was the theme of this book as well as the characters in it The characters were just lovable that I was okay with reading through the whole thing just because I loved the characters I'm that kind of reader The theme and the air of the book is also a bit refreshing and light and it worked out great for me when I was reading this bookThe uestions were too much if you ask me Maybe abut 20 uestions would have been okay?? But 36? I think that's a tad bit too much I have never been a fan of books that had too many uestions or reasons for the book to happen and what not because when it is too much the writing will also seem rushed Sadly this is also why happen in this book For the first 26 uestions it was still going great but for the last 10 or so that's when the writing started to feel rushedThe romance did seem pretty long and prolonged if you know what I mean? I actually wanted to see the two main characters interact in real life rather than just fall in love but you know that might just be me⟹ MY BLOG ⟸

    DNF 36% I was really interested in the idea behind it but I couldn't connect with the characters at all I couldn't uite get the rhythm of the story and got really confused on where on the timeline I was part of it was because of the format the ARC was sent with barely any structure which made the reading a lot complicatedIt was really disappointing since I really liked the idea of a falling in love method but it turns out 36 uestions is A LOT and it took forever for the characters to actually communicate instead of bicker each other

    I thought this book was so cute I'm very familiar with the study the book was based on so I was really excited to pick it up and see how it was played out in book format I read the book in one sitting and really enjoyed it It's a YA romance about two teens completing 36 uestions with each other with the intention being a psychologist will study the results and see if they feel connected or attracted to each other after answering them all What I will say is that the book is very predictable It's a typical girl meets boy story with lots and lots of misunderstandings until they eventually start to understand each other etc etc etc Despite the predictable plot which is pretty much a given in this type of book I found the story and characters enjoyable There were some drawings throughout the book which I really liked and thought was a nice touchThe one ualm I had was that there was a ton of build up to some bad event that happened in Hildy's life and when it finally came to light at the end of the book it seemed like there was going to be resolution with that particular storyline but the book ended and I felt like it was rather abrupt and that there could have been some closure in that regard Overall if you're looking for a book that's light and cute and has a happy ending this is the book for you

    DNF 28%Received from netgalley in exchange for a honest review Great premise that I had my Psych Degree mind in full overdrive but with characters I'm not interested in after the second chapter Also the potential of one the main characters being stereotyped into the typical thug and other stereotypes with different characters So nope Had potential but lost my interest very uickly

    I'm going to be annoying and give this 33 starsThe Good the bad and the fluffy mushy endThis very nearly ended up on my DNF pile simply because of the writing Outside of the IMs and interview style set up that was used while they asked each other uestions I didn't like the sometimes firstthird person style that was used when Hildie was on her own or inside her head It felt a little forced and very rough even for an ARC But having said that when she was talking to her friends or Bob I sped through the pages and really enjoyed it you just have to wait til around the 60% mark for it And despite things not being resolved outside of the main romance I did end up with the mushy feels for these two

    This book was very interesting especially in terms of the concept To think just answering a few uestions could lead to a proper relationship and completely change what you think about a person is almost unthinkable But the progression of the book really showed how feelings can just pop up out of the blue and how certain interactions can lead to The book mainly follows Hildy and Paul when they both decide to take part in a university psychology study in which the main focus is to see whether love can be engineered Both of them have completely different reasons to why they agree to answer uestions and join the study; Hildy actually knowing what the study is about and deciding to push herself out of her comfort zone and Paul only focused on the 40 he will make after taking part However they are then paired together to answer the 36 uestions This was much exciting and funny than I thought it would be To be honest I was expecting a fluffy only partially believable romance with not much depth but I didn't get that at all It was interestingly different in terms of the way it is written both in terms of the points of perspective and the structure in which the book is written There was a lot of depth to the characters separately and they definitely stood apart from characters in other books Often its hard to find authors whose protagonists really bring something different to the table but recently I have been surprised by the character development and the progression of the romantic relationships in the contemporary genre This book was no exception to that I found Hildy very relatable and the author really did a great job painting a picture of her life without blurting everything out at the beginning of the book Information was slowly uncovered throughout and I think that it worked well That said I did have a problem with certain family relationships not being explored I feel as though it could have added a lot of depth to the story and possibly given the plot what it was lacking and even upped it to a five star read My main problem with the book was that it was too short Some things only scratched the surface and I wanted to dive into that drama I needed interactions between Hildy and her family and friends We didn't really get to see how everything was resolved However I do give praise to the ending I very much enjoyed the way it came to a close and it really made me smileBack to the writing The way in which it is written is a little jarring and took a bit to get used to in the beginning however I don't feel like that was a bad thing; because I uickly got used to it and it was a great reading experience I loved the humour some of the dialog was really hilarious I was in a literal fit of giggles at one point I just couldn't believe the author had actually written some of the things she had It was unfiltered yet not too much so and the innuendos were fabulousI however do wish we could have got from the psychologist Jeff's perpective perhaps after the end of the study it would have been interesting to read Although at the same time I feel like if we had it would have made the relationship in which the protagonists had built seem a little less real and kind of cheep so I think I am kind of glad we didn't at the same time Overall I thought the format was pretty weird however I really liked it at the same time and found it really uick to read I enjoyed the way the idea was executed The plot was very fast moving and the characters were well fleshed out which made the progression of the relationship very exciting to read It was a very enjoyable read and would definitely recommend picking it up and giving it a goThank you to Running Press for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review
