I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo

loveI Believe In a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo

About: A disaster in romance, high school senior Desi Lee decides to tackle her flirting failures by watching Korean television dramas, where the hapless heroine always seems to end up in the arms of her true love by episode ten.

What I Liked: I super love K-Dramas! So when this book came out I definitely had to read it. It is everything I hoped for and more. Desi is good on the soccer field as well as everything in the academic field. However, when it comes to love she is clueless. When Luca the artsy handsome guy shows up at school she is attracted to him, but makes a fool of herself in front of him. She decides to take matters into her own hands. She binge watches K-Dramas and emerges with the determination that she will get the boy. This can only happen if she follows the steps of a K-Drama heroine. Thus the craziness starts! I never knew what was going to happen next. This was super funny and I totally recommend it!
