Waiting for Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the novel that kicked off an avalanche of romance novels in my reading list. And I do mean an avalanche.
Annie is obsessed with rom-coms and spends a lot of her time daydreaming about becoming a screen writer. Instead, she's a freelance writer and spends her time at the local coffee shop. Her meet-cute with a famous actor goes terribly wrong and she ends up thinking he's a terrible human being.
Surprise! He's actually super nice and misunderstood and they fall madly in love.
Sure, I spoiled it for you. But it's a rom com book called Waiting for Tom Hanks. What did you think was going to happen?
Annie is quirky and kind and the side cast of characters is delightful. This book read like the plot of any rom-com you would see on the screen. My only critique of this charming book would be that even after it's well established that Annie is obsessed with the genre, the specific references to specific movies gets to be a little bit much.
Otherwise, this is a great fast read.
