53066661._SX318_SY475_ (1)Title: The Falling in Love Montage

Author: Ciara Smyth

Publisher: Harper Teen

Release date: June 9, 2020

Goodreads Summary: “Saoirse doesn’t believe in love at first sight or happy endings. If they were real, her mother would still be able to remember her name and not in a care home with early onset dementia. A condition that Saoirse may one day turn out to have inherited. So she’s not looking for a relationship. She doesn’t see the point in igniting any romantic sparks if she’s bound to burn out.

But after a chance encounter at an end-of-term house party, Saoirse is about to break her own rules. For a girl with one blue freckle, an irresistible sense of mischief, and a passion for rom-coms.

Unbothered by Saoirse’s no-relationships rulebook, Ruby proposes a loophole: They don’t need true love to have one summer of fun, complete with every cliché, rom-com montage-worthy date they can dream up—and a binding agreement to end their romance come fall. It would be the perfect plan, if they weren’t forgetting one thing about the Falling in Love Montage: when it’s over, the characters actually fall in love… for real.

Why I'm excited for it

  • Because I love YA summer romances, and I live for f/f love stories!
  • It’s a rom-com that also deals with serious topics, like a family member with dementia
  • It sounds like a great readalike for Like Water by Rebecca Podos, which I adored!
  • I love the idea of a novel that embraces cliches and cheesy rom-com moments
  • Illustrated covers are my weakness, and the orangey sunset vibes on this one are so gorgeous!
  • The relationship-agreement trope is one of my favorites!
  • Dahlia Adler, who I love, blurbed this book! I always trust her blurbs and reviews.

why it should be on your tbr

  • Because you should be supporting queer books!
  • With 2020 being such a rough year, we can definitely all use a fun, cheesy, summer rom-com!
  • Because you should support debut authors! So many authors, especially new authors debuting this year, are being impacted by COVID-19, so reading & supporting new authors is a great way to help.
  • Who doesn’t want a sweet rom-com with a beautiful cover on their shelves?!


Is The Falling in Love Montage by Ciara Smyth on your TBR?

Happy reading! Ari
