To the fact that she has the perfect boy right in front of her Everyone else can see what she cannot and some already assume Hannah and Sol are a couple Dan the waste of space thinks Sol is just Hannah s gay bestfriend What I liked over the period of the book is how both Hannah and Sol learned from their mistakes and matured emotionally as they both realised what was important in a good relationship For a while Sol tries dating another girl but it s always Hannah for him in his heart They watch movies together each month sometimes it goes horribly wrong The two people at the beginning of the story a ear later are different people in a good way but of course are essentially the same just a little bit wiser It was a fun book with movie uotes interspersed within The film choices were interesting too CAN LOVE BE JUST LIKE THE MOVIES I was excited when I first picked up this book slightly concerned when I saw the words The Friend Zone I was worried about Sol s character and his representationFor the most part I was wrong The Friend Zone was only mentioned in the actual book once or twice Since most of the book featured their friendship some of it did seem rushed Especially when an old friend comes back into the picture for HannaPlus I wasn t uite sure about the girls in the book they were all over the boys despite the fact that boy was dating their friend at the time plus Danny was supposed to be this amazing guy Pure Excitement yet he never once broke up with a girl Just public humiliationet girls still thought they could be the one to change himI did like the story as a whole the development of their friendship their own personalities as they got closer and closer to university Plus I love how the author showed each movie they watched the Auksaviriai I d year of release the director and the writer plus gave a summary for the movie as well A few of the movies I already knew of others are ones I ve not seen but they all helped tie into specific parts of the storyThe book did have a lot of potential and it did mostly live up to it but I didn t enjo this book as much as I d hoped I would but as a fluffy Summer read I would recommend it because it s still a funny and cute read about coming of age friendship romance and lots of teen drama WaitReallyNoNot really Wanted to love this one but sadly the premise of a guy being worried about being relegated to the friend zone is so tone deaf that it hurts especially because the novel has been written by a woman and is being published in 2018 in the midst of the metoo movement This aspect soured my experience of the novel which was otherwise a cute romance with tons of great movie references stop motion animation and a lot of hilarious elements One other thing this was written by a person from the UK and set in the UK and I uickly realized that my knowledge of British slang is sadly limited While I got a lot of the references some of the language and the school system went over my head.

A fun and enjoyable story full of friendship romance and teen drama The dual narration between Hanna and Sol is a great way of giving the reader insight into both of their mindsets I definitely preferred Sol s point of view Hanna irritated the crap at me sometimes as she s just so self absorbed But this self absorption is something that changes as her character develops over the 12months we follow her storyI loved the scenes between Sol and his parents and Hanna and Lizzie but I could not stand Trixie and Dan which I m sure is the authors point hahaThe writing is engaging and I read the whole book this afternoon as I wanted to see how Han and Sol s friendship would developFull of laugh out loud moments this book is perfect for fans of Jenny McLachlan Holly Bourne and Laura Dockrill This is a light fun YA romance which can be compared to Holly Bourne s It Only Happens In The Movies Hanna and Sol are best friends but as they embark on a New Year s Resolution to live a little and watch a movie together every month their dynamic begins to shift It s full of flirting humour and teenage mishaps making it a fun and easy readI wasn t a huge fan of the text speak that Hanna used as it seemed a bit out of character and I also think the New Year s Resolution of watching a movie didn t fully make sense it seemed to come out of nowhere Unlike Bourne s novel this one doesn t go into depth about the movies referenced Expect something lighter fluffier but with just as much heart Alright don t roast me I find this book absolutely stupid I love good YA novels especially really fluffy adorable ones I can survive some bad cliche YA tropes and sometimes even one dimensional characters I m a strong bookworm What I can t stand are brainless irritating selfish characters with the emotional range of a teaspoon who manipulate use others Characters that don t really change but still get their happy ending Seriously What a waste of a pleasant writing style All in all it felt as if I was reading about immature junior high schoolers not college age people A good story with potential didn t enjoy it as much as I thought I would Hannas character was a bit annoying and there was a bit too much of going back and forth Movie Night tells the story of best friends Hannah and Sol who is in love with Hannah as they make a New Year s Resolution to watch a film together every month and their feelings towards each other begin to change First of all I really liked and sympathised with the feelings of both main characters even though I slightly preferred Sol s chapters and I thought the supporting cast especially Sol s very humorous dads Andrew and Gareth and his rather hilariously violent cat Nigel were brilliant I also enjoyed the dialogue between characters which was brilliant and felt realistic and I particularly liked Sol and Hannah s scene What a such fun storyI really enjoyed this book It was fast paced but filled with so One I am hopelessly in love with Hanna Bergdahl Two for the first time since our recent reunion Hanna Bergdahl appears to be single And three I am in stuck in that inescapable netherworld of demons and acne the Friend ZoneTwo best friends One crushSol and Hanna were best friends at primary schoo.
