• I love how succinctly we’re introduced to the characters in this book. It’s only 20 pages in and I feel very comfortable with the characters
  • Yeah, Mia is delusional if she things Logan doesn’t like her—he’s kind of got a charm too.
  • Wow, what a mortifying experience to have Logan’s phone number on her forehead the whole broadcast.
  • She’s being pretty liberal with her declarations “I have a thing for Vince not Logan” what if the camera is still live
  • AHAHAHAHA it WAS still on.
  • Also, I can’t help but feel a bit bad for Logan since she basically outrightly rejected him.
  • I know this is the plot of the book, but seriously how is sending the match email to Vince going to help.
  • Standard “current love interest vs. history love interest competition”—I personally feel like this is a trope that needs to be done very well for it to be successful. Because it’s basically like a love-triangle; it must be handled with care.
  • Logan is just so sweet and clearly, from their date, Mia had a great time.
  • It’s also very clear Elena likes Vince and Robyn would have matched them together.
  • I think Elena is being kind of a bitch though—it’s not really Mia’s fault she didn’t know Elena liked Vince. Or maybe it is and it just means Mia is unobservant.
  • How is this a competition Jesus Vince didn’t even call Mia after the gossip column thing
  • I KNEW IT I knew Elena and Vince had a thing. And it is kind of fair that Elena goes with Logan now since everything is screwed up now lol?
  • Basically here’s what happens after: Mia and Logan kiss, Mia feels bad, Mia and Logan almost get together, Logan finds a list of horrible things Mia’s said about him, Logan gets mad, Mia and Elena make up, Mia and Logan make up. And that’s it.
  • 5/10—This was just okay. When I heard about it, I was really excited. And then I heard it was just OK from a friend. So I was like, “Okay, just don’t have too high expectations.” And turns out, it was very just OK. Kind of, and I hate to say it, but mediocre. This story was full of angst, but it just felt like a little too much. So, let’s talk about angst. Angst has a purpose. I like angst. Angst makes it fun, it’s what makes Pride and Prejudice enjoyable and what makes Titanic so romantic. But this was so much that I disliked it; nothing seemed to end. We spent about 70 percent of the book in Mia’s head, yet it was so busy it felt like she did little self-reflection when in reality, I know she did a lot. So when I say there was too much angst for one book—that’s saying something. Like the stuff really seemed blown out of proportion compared to what was actually happening. It was kind of weird too because Mia was branded as very practical and logical from the beginning, but spend the entire book not using logic at all?
    • After I realized this book was a retelling of A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream, I liked it a lot more. And I don’t exactly know the plot of A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream (most of what I know is from the Suite Life of Zac and Cody episode). The events all felt kind of random, and then I settled into it after finding out it was a retelling, which admittedly was late in the game.
    • I really just want a YA book about Robyn now. she was by far, the most interesting character.
    • The friendship with Elena could have gone a lot deeper, but I feel like it wasn’t developed properly. I did like that they had a resolution and forgave each other in the end.
    • Vince was your typical unrelatable popular boy.
    • Logan definitely had his moments (most in the first 50 pages), but fell flat in the end anyway.
