“Lesson learned: Don’t request a book when you’re hungry.”
~ Under the Covers
Lesson learned: Don’t request a book when you’re hungry. The macarons on this cover seduced me into taking a chance on The Art of French Kissing unfortunately in this case it didn’t work out. This review won’t be very long as I DNFed at 35% and to get even that far it took me a week – for context, I can normally read 2 or 3 books in that time.
The YA genre is one that I struggle with, but I did want to give it more of a try this year. However, The Art of French Kissing just highlighted what I find irritating about YA: teenagers. There was too much teenage angst and uncontrollable hormones being paraded around. It was bad enough when I actually had to live through the experience myself, so I didn’t relish reading about it. I just didn’t connect with the characters, there was too much over dramatics for my tastes.
I haven’t given up on trying to find some YA I like; however, I may give up on YA romances. All they do is exasperate me!

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
