Happy Monday! Let’s get this week started with some book reviews 🙂 I received a copy of LOST AND FOUND by Danielle Ryan from Netgalley and the publisher, Aria, in exchange for my honest review. The verdict? An enjoyable contemporary romance/YA read.
My Thoughts: 3.5/5 stars!
I always like to have a cleanser between thrillers, mysteries, and horror. The premise of LOST AND FOUND by Danielle Ryan intrigued me – I do like the more contemporary-romance-almost YA type books. This one is about an unexpected romance blossoming from an iPad and Facebook.
Melissa lives in Milan working as a college researcher and after buying an iPad in an auction, she quickly realizes the previous owner did not delete all of their files. She looks through the photos and loves the landscapes and city views, so she begins searching for the owner – because why not?
Through the magic of Facebook, Melissa finds Riccardo and can’t help but contact him. They begin chatting here and there, but then they both become increasingly dependent on their unusual relationship. A relationship they’re both completely fine with leaving as a virtual one – no plans to meet in person. But, of course, their digital world is brought into real life, and their true feelings are revealed when they finally meet.
This is definitely something that I know happens all the time. There’s always that sense of, is this person really who they say they are? Fake accounts are made all the time. So you never truly know who you’re talking to until you take the leap to meet in person. It was definitely a cute romance story and a quick read. I did enjoy the messenger interactions and seeing the relationship blossom.
This is the perfect summer read or beach read. If you want something light and quick, then this is the book for you!
I give this 3.5/5 stars! Only because I wasn’t too drawn in at first but once the relationship started to blossom it became much more enjoyable!
A big thanks to Aria for an advanced copy in exchange for my honest review!
