The Secret to Falling in Love by Victoria Cooke
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Who doesn’t like a cute book about love?
Okay, I admit when I was reading this the thought did cross my mind that I was not the target demographic, but that thought disappeared the more I got to know Melissa. Actually, I think the thought disappeared the moment Melissa watched the Matrix. So she is more addicted to her phone than most people are to oxygen, this 35-year-old woman’s quest for love in the modern world was still something I could get behind and cheer for.
Melissa worked as a journalist and was selected to write a story on unplugging from technology. Basically, this woman who for over a quarter of the book couldn’t go a page without looking at her screen (funny cause I read this on the Kindle app on my iPhone) suddenly had to start making plans via home phone and landlines. She couldn’t email, use dating apps, or make plans to go to the bar with her friends like she used to. She went from spending all day worrying about how many likes she can get, and feeling lonely to being thrust into a bit of a love triangle and rediscovering how to live.
This is a cute, low-stress book with a main character you can cheer for.
