Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills

Happy Valentine's Day, loves!

This was another OwlCrate book that just sat around for a while, but after a few intense and heavy reads, I wanted to pick up something fluffy. Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills follows Claudia, a high school student who gets roped into helping with the school production of A Midsummer Night's Dream after accidentally overhearing something she shouldn't have. Throughout the story, Claudia has to learn how to deal with change and adapt to it, learn to build new friendships, and let go of the feeling that she is not worthy of love.

This book was absolutely the light and fluffy book I was hoping for. It read extremely quickly, the plot was easy to follow but still engaging, and overall I thought the story was really cute! There was an intense part about a baby being born prematurely, so take that into consideration if that may be a trigger for you. 

This was full of nerd content (think MMORPGs), the perfect bromance, plenty of Shakespeare, unlikely friendships, boy band love, f/f romance, and so many other adorable themes. I loved every minute I spent with this delightful book. There were a few times the main characters were a little annoying or clueless, but hey, they're teenagers. It wouldn't be realistic if they weren't!

While I've seen a few of Emma Mills' books before, this is the first I ever read. It definitely won't be the last. And look at that cover! Mine is slightly different since it's the OwlCrate exclusive edition, but the covers of all her books are so beautifully detailed and textured you can't help but be drawn to them.

Did this book change my life? No. Did it deliver exactly what I wanted? Absolutely. It's not groundbreaking or super unique, but I can definitely see myself revisiting this one, and I can't say that for a lot of books. And for that, the high rating is deserved in my opinion.
