Happy Monday Everyone!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! So I just finished this amazing book on Saturday and had to share it with everyone! Waiting for Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey is a laugh out loud romantic comedy, that I couldn’t put down!
The book description was taken from the Goodreads website:
“Can a romcom-obsessed romantic finally experience the meet-cute she always dreamed of or will reality never compare to fiction, in this charming debut adult novel from Kerry Winfrey.
Annie is twenty-seven years old, single, and obsessed with romantic comedies (she and her mother watched them religiously, before her mom died). Her dating life is limited by the expectations she’s formed from these movies. She is not as open to new experiences as she might be, because she’s waiting for her Tom Hanks–i.e., a guy she’ll find in the perfect, meet-cute romantic comedy way. When Annie does finally meet her perfect match, it’s not quite in the way she expected, and she’s forced to reckon with the walls she’s built around herself over the years.”
When I say that Annie is my spirit animal, I really mean it. I have gone to cons where I have meet some famous actors I loved, and I definitely had some Annie moments. Annie just wants to find her Tom Hanks, who will fill all of her romcom fantasies, and her journey is filled with laughter and heartbreak. What I really loved is the way Kerry writes the characters, and gives them a life of their own. Annie’s journey in this book will leave you laughing, screaming, and crying right along with her.
Plus, who wouldn’t want to read a book that is practically ever romcom you have ever seen wrapped up into one amazing story! I also loved that all the romcom references that were made in this book, I was able to follow along with because I have seen just about all the movies that were mentioned. I also had to watch some of them again after reading this book, because I remembered how much I absolutely love them! If you love romcom romances or just amazing stories that will leave you hooked from the very first page, than you need to pick up a copy of this book ASAP!
Go find your Tom Hanks my dear romantics!
