    Now I'm craving some authentic, Italian gelato and cute, Italian guy with it.

  • Chelsea (chelseadolling reads)

    This was pretty damn cute, you guys. All I want to do now is go to Italy and fall in love with some Nutella pastries. Insert gif of Emma Stone saying YUM here.

    I will be displaying my emotions through Ron Swanson gifs.

    Love and Gelato was a book I desperately wanted to love. I mean, the set up was perfect. Italy, love and gelato (which I've never actually had but it sounds good). Italy is a destination I have always wanted to travel, and how could you not with all the culture present in the cities.

    However, as I began to read this book I knew it wasn't going to be a finish for me. Why? Well, the writing just jumped straight into the plot withou

    "It's a cemetery." My voice was like weak tea.




    What? What in the name of all things holy and blessed does this mean? Is weak tea really the metaphor you choose to use? I knew this book, and I would have a problem here almost instantly. I can handle crazy metaphors sometimes, but this was a no and was at the very beginning of the book, so it could only go downhill. For me, it did.

    Not only did my hatred for Lina become cemented in the first 100 pages of the 900 page eBook but I was subjected to countless more strange and "quirky" people. However, Lina was just rude. I understand her mum had died six months previously, and it seemed like that was leading up to be an excuse featuring through the rest of the book, but she was rude. She was unwilling to give her recently discovered father a chance. I don't understand why because she isn't even sure if he knew about her existence.

    Also:

    "Aggressively normal."




    Is a sentence I never want to hear again because what?

    Oh, we also get to introduced to Lina's totally tacky awesome best friend, who is like so idiotic funny.

    “Why are you being so quiet? Is Gravedigger there?”

    “I’m in my bedroom, but I get the feeling that sound travels in this house. I don’t know if he can hear me or not.”

    “Great. So you can’t even speak freely. We’d better come up with a code word so I know if you’re okay. Say ‘bluebird’ if you’re being held hostage.”




    Like Ron's burger, this completely missed the mark for me.

    Oh, and lets not forget that Addie and Lina are both very judgmental creative:

    “Addie and I had once won a costume contest dressed as Tacky Tourists. These two could have been our inspiration.”




    I can't even add onto that. I understand there is a "tacky tourist" look, but honestly, if I went travelling I would probably be a tacky tourist myself and guess what? That is fine.

    Now, one last quote before I conclude this review. The quote that made me decide this was not for me in any way:

    “Howard still had steam curling out of his nostrils.”




    I understand some people may think I didn't give this book a fair go, considering I decided to DNF at 10%, but honestly, I couldn't subject myself to this. I couldn't put myself through head banging sentences and characters who are meant to be funny and different but are simply rude. It's possible this story is super cute, but I won't be sticking around to find out.

    Honestly, what this book felt like was a jumble of words that shouldn't have slipped past an editor, in my opinion.

    To be honest, I was more interested in the gelato part than the love part, but it was still pretty cute.

  • Kasie West

    Super cute. I loved it.

  • Karmen (readingoncloud9)

    *4.5 stars*

    After finishing this book, (well also during reading it) I had major cravings for some gelato. It was super cute and mysterious. I couldn't put it down! Because of this book, I want to go to Italy even more now.

    4.5 Stars

    Love and Gelato is the perfect book to enjoy this summer. Set in Italy, this book is absolutely breathtaking. The fact that there are old journal entries in the story makes it so much more incredible. Trust me, after reading this book, you’ll be craving some gelato!

    Love and Gelato has such an interesting concept! This book tells the story of Lina, a girl who moves to Italy after her mom dies. When she gets there, she is given an old journal of her mom’s and learns many secrets about her
