Read I Believe in a Thing Called Love Online Free - Desi Lee knows how carburetors work. She learned CPR at the age of five. As a high school senior, she has never missed a day of school and has never had a B in her entire life. She's for sure going to Stanford. But—she’s never had a boyfriend. In fact, she’s a disaster in romance, a clumsy, stammering humiliation-magnet whose botched attempts at flirting have become legendary with her friends. So when the hottest human specimen to have ever lived walks into her life one day, Desi decides to tackle her flirting failures with the same zest she’s applied to everything else in her life. She finds her answer in the Korean dramas her father has been obsessively watching for years—where the hapless heroine always seems to end up in the arms of her true love by episode ten. It's a simple formula, and Desi is a quick study. Armed with her “K Drama Rules for True Love,” Desi goes after the moody, elusive artist Luca Drakos—and boat rescues, love triangles, and fake car crashes ensue. But when the fun and games turn to true feels, Desi finds out that real love is about way more than just drama.

You just needed a plan, to take action. It’s how I convinced my dad to let me raise geese in our backyard, how I saved our underfunded middle school library from closure, how I overcame a fear of heights by bungee jumping on my sixteenth birthday (with only a little pee escaping me), and how I b...

4.5 stars. Easily one of the best YA contemporaries I've found this year - it was absolutely hilarious & endearing!!
I'm a huge fan of kdramas and love how this story even referenced so many of my favorites!! Basically, Desi follows a plan for everything and tries to control life's variables a...

I think this may be a 4.5. It was ADORABLE and HILARIOUS. I was smiling the whole time.

Full disclaimer, I've never seen a K-Drama before (although this book definitely peaked my interest in them) so I can't definitively judge how well this book actually aligns with the execution of the televised dramas. However, Maurene Goo does a spectacular job of explaining them to readers who h...

Happy birthday to this very cute contemporary!
Thank you, Macmillan, for sending me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Unexpected things happen, but it's how we react to them, how we learn and evolve from these things that shapes us into who we are. —Desi

EDITED: Actual review time below!!
A book about a girl who uses k-dramas as a guide to flirting and romance????
So, here's the thing: this book read like a k-drama. I love-love-loved the parallels. Desi creates this list of steps based on k-dramas for how to get her man, but in reality, she'...

I absolutely loved this book. Tying in K-drama structure while also being so important to Desi's master plan was cleverly done, and seeing Korean home life/relationship dynamics/details depicted so well was refreshing (see my status updates for specific thoughts). I couldn't stop turning the page...
