This is what happy looks like


This is what happy looks like – Jennifer E. Smith

Well, good gosh this was all kinds of adorable.
I read the Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight a few months ago, and although it was cute, it was also a bit predictable and down right irritating at times. This though, this was as cute as a basket of kittens presenting you with a bag of candy floss. In fact, I think this book might just be what happiness looks like. Reading this put me in mind of a McFly song (am I the only person who’s not upset about the McBusted thing?) so, I thought I’d link ya’ll to it, just so you can have a soundtrack when reading this that is the same as the soundtrack I had when reading the book.

If fate sent you an email, would you answer?
When teenage movie star Graham Larkin accidentally sends small town girl Ellie O’Neill an email about his pet pig, the two seventeen-year-olds strike up a witty and unforgettable correspondence, discussing everything under the sun, except for their names or backgrounds. 
Then Graham finds out that Ellie’s Maine hometown is the perfect location for his latest film, and he decides to take their relationship from online to in-person. But can a star as famous as Graham really start a relationship with an ordinary girl like Ellie? And why does Ellie want to avoid the media’s spotlight at all costs?

This did what Billy and Me did, but much more successfully. Small town shop worker meets with a secret past meets famous film star and the pair strike up a relationship. The two stories were fairly similar and although neither of them are particularly ground breaking, this was much cuter, its the sort of story that leaves a massive smile on your face, it’s light, funny and totally sweet. Graham was exactly what I hope all celebrities are like. He put me in mind of Darren Criss or maybe a much younger Tom Hiddleston, he was charming, like a disney prince or something. This should have been a disaster, it should have been cliched and boring, but it wasn’t, it was actually kind of lovely.

Also, this had a beautiful cover and some amazing fonts inside. I love a good typeset.

This is post four of my six week challenge.
