Wishlist Thursday[65]: Just Like the Movies by Kelly Fiore

Just Like the Movies by Kelly Fiore

Genre: YA Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Walker Books

Release Date: July 22, 2014

Goodreads Synopsis:

Pretty and popular track star Marijke Monti is confident about almost everything – she’s got great friends, a great family, and she’s on her way to the State Track Championship. In fact, the only thing Marijke isn’t confident about is her relationship with Tommy Lawson.

Lily Spencer has spent her entire high school career preparing for the future – she’s participated in every extracurricular activity and volunteer committee she could. But, at home, she watches her mother go on date after date with dud-dudes, still searching for “the one.” Lily realizes that she’s about to graduate and still hasn’t even had a boyfriend.

While they live on each other’s periphery at school, Lily and Marijke never seemed to have much in common; but, after a coincidental meeting at the movie theater, Lily gets an idea – why can’t life be like a movie? Why can’t they set up their perfect romantic situations, just in time for their senior prom, using movie techniques?

Once the girls come up with the perfect plans, they commit themselves to being secret cohorts and, just like in the movies, drama ensues.


This just sounds like a cute story to me. It looks and sounds like a good, chick-lit-y, romantic book. The idea of setting things up like the movies, trying to make perfect moments like in the movies, sounds really cute, funny, and adorable to me.

What are you looking forward to reading?
