Happy Wednesday and welcome to my stop on the tour for Lucky Caller!!! This is such an AMAZING book, and I’m so excited to be a part of the blog tour! So read on to find my review (with my favorite quotes!), more info about Emma Mills, where to follow the rest of the tour, and a giveaway for a print copy of Lucky Caller!
I received this book for free from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Lucky Caller by Emma Mills
Published by Henry Holt & Company on January 14, 2020
Genres: YA, Contemporary, Romance
Format: ARC, eARC
With the warmth, wit, intimate friendships, and heart-melting romance she brings to all her books, Emma Mills crafts a story about believing in yourself, owning your mistakes, and trusting in human connection in Lucky Caller.
When Nina decides to take a radio broadcasting class her senior year, she expects it to be a walk in the park. Instead, it’s a complete disaster.
The members of Nina's haphazardly formed radio team have approximately nothing in common. And to maximize the awkwardness her group includes Jamie, a childhood friend she'd hoped to basically avoid for the rest of her life.
The show is a mess, internet rumors threaten to bring the wrath of two fandoms down on their heads, and to top it all off Nina's family is on the brink of some major upheaval.
Everything feels like it's spiraling out of control―but maybe control is overrated?
A TL;DR OF MY REVIEW:
- AMAZING characters!!!
- SERIOUSLY THOUGH they felt so real I thought if I put the right radio station on they would be there talking to me
- FRIENDS to more than friends? LOVE IT!
- HEART EYES FOREVER AND EVER 😍😍😍
I know I’ve said this before, but it’s worth repeating now: contemporaries are very hit or miss for me. This one was definitely a hit! The characters in Lucky Caller were SO well developed, I felt like if I just tuned into the correct radio station I would be part of the story. And speaking of radio stations, I ABSOLUTELY LOVED the radio aspect of this book? Like, I was not expecting to care much about the radio show, but Joydeep and Sasha really shined (and Jamie and Nina were just… next level amazing) and I ended up loving it!
Sometimes books (even books I’m enjoying!) end up taking me forever and a day to finish, and then by the end I don’t really remember everything about the characters or plot, but this book was so good I just kept thinking about basically any time I wasn’t reading it and I ended up finishing it in like a day and a half.
There were a couple different plotlines threading their way through this book, and without any spoilers, I just have to say that I loved the resolutions to ALL of them! Also, there’s a slight ~conspiracy~ theory at the end that just made me laugh… but I’ve decided to believe that it’s true! So after you read Lucky Caller, come back to chat with me about whether or not you believe it… I want to know!
Okay so on it’s own, this is a FANTASTIC cover! The colors are beautiful and the typography is perfect. But the covers for Emma Mills’ other books are some of my all time favorites, and this one doesn’t quite match or add up, so…
- Meet Me in Outer Space by Melinda Grace
- The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
- How to Speak Boy by Tiana Smith
Emma Mills is the author of First & Then, This Adventure Ends, Foolish Hearts, Famous in a Small Town, and Lucky Caller. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri, and has recently completed a PhD in cell biology.
