  1. Sadly, this book wasn t for me Actually, now that I think about it, I don t think Jennifer E Smith s writing in general is for me as I didn t enjoy The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight either although I did like it than this one.Don t get me wrong, I didn t hate TIWHLL I really enjoyed the first third of it and was getting invested in the characters and plot, but then it just fizzled out There really wasn t a plot driving the story forwards and I didn t feel any chemistry between [...]

  2. 2 starsAs a true hopeless romantic, the normal girl meets and falls in love with a famous boy story makes my heart flutter No matter how clich , I really enjoy reading stories like it And yet This Is What Happy Looks Like is just lackluster in everything This review will contain spoilers Beware I just can t review this book without pointing out the idiotic plot points.So Ellie and Graham meet by accident when Graham misspells an e mail address They don t know who the other is, but they seem to r [...]

  3. I CANNOT WITH THIS BOOK I m pretty much giving it a 5 star because of how much it made me love it It certainly wasn t perfect, but it was exactly what I needed at the moment and was just PERFECT FOR ME.I loved the characters and the romance and just EVERYTHING SO MUCHHHHH IT IS EVERYTHING HEART.

  4. Sweet, heartwarming and very wholesome Three things why I like reading books by Ms Jennifer E Smith There is a familiarity to her stories the reader could easily relate to It s like watching feel good romantic movies You could easily predict the plot but you enjoy it just the same.I just thought the alternating POV between the girl and boy would have worked better in these kinds of stories instead of the third person because it seemed like the third person narrative made the pacing a bit long w [...]

  5. If you want a read that leaves a smile on your face, This Is What Happy Looks Like is the perfect choice A sweet romance, a small town, and fun characters make this a great summer read that you should definitely bring on vacation A modern day fairy tale is what this story is, really It s not the kind of love story that s particularly believable no one accidentally pen pals a stranger who ends up being a movie star but if you enjoy those lightweight romance books where the story is of a dream th [...]

  6. No, this is what boring looks like After The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, and now this, I think it s fair to say that Jennifer E Smith s writing is just not for me The potential is there interesting premise, realistic complications but unfortunately the execution is bland and tedious, and I don t feel the most was made of the conflicts raised Meh.

  7. Believe it or not, I ve seen You ve Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle Not willingly, but I ve seen em This is What Happy Looks Like is neither In reality, what this really is is Win a Date with Tad Hamilton which I have also seen, also not willingly So if you re looking for some cute emails it s not written wholly in epistolary form though, don t worry , yeah this book has em If you re looking for every single movie star tired of his job deciding to looking for romance with a small town girl cli [...]

  8. It is now 11 28 pm.I forced my drooping eyelids to stay open so that I could finish this amazing book.This is officially the best book I have ever read in my 17 years of life.I m crying and laughing at the same time.I ve been given a precious gift a story that, like a jigsaw piece, has clicked into a place in my heart, a place I never knew was empty and waiting to be filled.I m so, so happy And this book is to blame.So it s off to bed tomorrow is nearly here And like our main protagonist, I plan [...]

  9. REREAD UPDATEDer Geschmack von Gl ck war auch beim zweiten Mal lesen wieder eine wundervolle Geschichte Wenn auch recht vorhersehbar Dieses Mal hat mich besonders der Schreibstil berzeugen k nnen, der den Charakteren eine solche Tiefe verliehen hat und der Henley lebhaft wirken lie Viele sehr nachdenkliche Szenen haben das Buch auf jeden Fall von vielen anderen Contemporary Romance Romanen abgehoben und so kann ich bei der Wertung von vor drei Jahren blieben.RezensionDieses Buch ist einfach WUND [...]

  10. Such a cute read I love Jennifer E Smith s effortless and charming writing style and stories I thought this story was adorable and a perfect summer romance Not my favorite by Jen, but a sweet and heartfelt novel.

  11. DNF at 100 pages Wow, this novel single handedly solidified my dislike for fiction books about famous people.

  12. So the thing with Jennifer Smith s stories is It s not unique but it s Amazing.I don t know she does it, but somehow, it s almost like she takes cliches and makes them new and refreshing, and remind us of WHY they became a cliche in the first place The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight used the cliche of love at first sight, and this one of falling in love with a celebrity And OMG I loved it It was absolutely adorable I did wish the mystery of who Graham was withheld a little longer [...]

  13. Actual rating 2.5 starsNothing really happens, but a cute story nonetheless The events in this book was actually pretty realistic It deals with the problems Graham faces as a movie star and Ellie s past Though there never was a real solution to them, there isn t supposed to be one in reality, and I find the no solution part really refreshing In reality, there are difficulties we can t tackle, problems we can t handle, that s why the whole plot felt like something that would actually happen in re [...]

  14. 3.5 Los recuerdos de infancia eran como el equipaje en los aviones daba igual lo lejos que viajaras o cu nto tiempo tuvieras que quedarte, solo te permit an llevar una maleta Y aunque dichas maletas pod an contener algunos recuerdos difusos, no parec an suficientes como para durar toda una vida.

  15. This Is What BORING Looks likeAfter Ellie gets an email from a random stranger online when he types the wrong address by accident, the two of them start chatting and form a three month long pen pal relationship They never reveal their names but Ellie finds herself telling him things about her life that not even her best friend knows The whole mystery of the situation makes Ellie look forward to each exchange with excitement and thrill.What she doesn t know is that the funny, charming stranger is [...]

  16. 3.5 starsThis is What Happy Looks was a super cute book about two strangers being brought together by an e mail being sent to the wrong e mail address Before you know it Ellie and Graham are sending e mails back and forth to each other for the next few weeks Ellie doesn t know Graham s name and that he s a famous actor, but he s the only person she s ever opened up to She finds it easy to talk to him and tell him things about him she s never told anyone before Ellie s not had the best life, she [...]

  17. Here you go I haven t read The Statistical Possibility of Love at First Sight so I was not really aware of Smith s writing style when I first started this novel I do think the premise, while it has been done countless times in countless variations, will remain attractive to anyone looking for a fairytale romance.Except, you know, this novel doesn t exactly deliver on the fairytale portion It s not exactly grim and realistic but Smith is careful to ensure that the not so fun parts of the fairytal [...]

  18. There s one thing about me that you did or did not know that had a huge impact on me when it comes to enjoying while reading this book I am a celebrity freak.So I didn t go into this book totally blind Even if I wanted to, I don t think that would be possible for me since many of my GR friends have already liked and recommended this book to me.This is a light and fluffy contemporary novel, perfect for summer read.I can t help but to feel a little bit sorrow for not waiting two months so I could [...]

  19. See reviews at YA Midnight Reads Maybe growing up was really nothing than growing away from your old life, from your old self, from all those things that kept you tethered to your past What does happy look like For me, happy looks like reading good books I wasn t exactly the happiest person when I finished this novel But that s not to claim that Jennifer s latest was a complete disaster, I would just put it as mildly interesting and cute I think I would ve rated this differently if I was in a [...]

  20. This is the kind of book you read in between other books It is sorta like cotton candy, you put a big fluffy wad in your mouth and it dissolves immediately without much fuss or substance to it Don t get me wrong it is delicious and enjoyable but it really isn t going to stick with you either That is what This is What Happy Looks Like was for me It is easy and flows along without much thought It is cute and if you have already read Anna and the French Kiss or Lola and the Boy Next Door it then th [...]

  21. Ellie gets a random email asking to make sure Wilbur gets fed and being an animal lover she couldn t help but respond to let the person know he d gotten the wrong person Striking up a conversation over email Ellie and Graham begin a friendship that Ellie never thought would go any further than email since the pair are from opposite sides of the states When a movie production ends up taking place in Ellie s small town she finds it a bit of an inconvenience than anything Everyone a flutter over t [...]

  22. Cramathon read 2 COMPLETE This book was a bit of a mess I really wanted to like this because it sounded SO cute, but it was a bit of a letdown The writing was fine and the characters were cute but there were just TOO many things happening I feel like this would have been so much better if the author had cut back on some of the dramatics tbh.

  23. For someone who gives five full stars to every book that has successfully managed to extract one happy tear out of her eyes, this book proved to be way too much endearing and heartwarming It s not the storyline that got me reading in the first place, but rather the peculiar and seemingly funny first few pages that promised yawn free, tedium free waking hours of the entire night Uh oh What I forgot my phone So So how am I supposed to e mail you now I guess we ll just have to talk Know any good sa [...]

  24. Just barely 3 stars It was sorta cute, but not really I wasn t really feeling it and the two main characters didn t have much chemistry It was also a little bit insta love y Like, just because you emailed each other for a few months, doesn t mean you ve fallen in love I kind of reminded me of Meg Cabot s work.So one day, famous 17 year old actor Graham Larkin sent an email to one of his managers about walking his pet pig His email, however, went somewhere else He missed one number in the address [...]

  25. The word for today is Disappointment That is what this book was for me a major disappointment I will attempt to explain why, but it may not come out as coherently as I hope For starters, nothing happens Yes, there are events, characters do things, but nothing happens Nothing really changes except for a few minor details, a few outlooks shift, but after being force fed a diet of secret scandals and lies, I felt like perhaps there should have been a bit climax Instead the entire story just fizzle [...]

  26. I thought this book was pretty good Definitely a very fluffy, easy contemporary read I wish there was of a dialogue with Quinn and Ellie s relationship, their feud in the beginning felt to forced to me Otherwise it was pretty good I loved the town of Henley, I could imagine it perfectly in my mind 3.7 stars

  27. Call it fate, destiny, meant to be or maybe it was it s own kind of miracle, but when fate decided to send a mis typed e mail that sparked a new found friendship for GDL824 and EONeill22 that gave a whole new meaning to internet connection, wouldn t you answer back I ve only read one other book by Jennifer E Smith, but that was all it took for me to want to read of her work and fall in love with the ideas she comes up with Jennifer has a knack with taking something impossible and making it prob [...]

  28. 2,5 stars Disappointing book My expectations were too high I guess but it was a cute book to read Enjoyable at best.Ellie gradually becomes a tiny bit annoying whereas Graham becomes a better guy But there isn t really any development The story is so clich The plot wasn t very exploited but I did love the papz thing that made me realize how hard a celebrity s life can be Aside from that, it was so slow I feel horrible for that but when I saw the acknowledgements page I was so fucking glad.
