AS SEEN ON A THOUSAND WORDS A MILLION booksI received a review copy from Usbourne in exchange for an honest review All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own If you don t already know, Maggie Harcourt s second novel, Unconventional was one of my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE reads of 2017 It was adorkable, awkward, filled with RIDICULOUSLY cute moments, authors and being locked in convention centres Absolutely stunning, and a MUST read As soon as I was done, I stalked Maggie Harcourt s Goodreads profile, only to find her next book, Theatrical listed RIGHT THERE Needless to say, it made my 2018 HAVE TO read list And here we are I finished Theatrical a few days ago, and I m only just finding the time to sit down and write my review for it IN A NUTSHELL Theatrical had all the elements I LOVED about Unconventional family, finding yourself, romance, awkwardness, girls with Purpose and it 4. 5 stars. Review is coming But if you haven t, please pre ordered this book Thanks to Usborne for sending me the physical copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewI have this weird rule regarding contemporaries never read a contemporary book longer than 250 pages. Why Because most of the times they are dragged and end up getting boring and dull But, that s not the case when it comes to Theatrical It s easily one of the best Contemporaries I have read this year and has kind of sort of, restored my faith in them Theatrical is about Hope a 17 years old Theater lover who starts an internship at Earl s Theater She becomes part of the production of Piecekeepersand possibly the most anticipated theater production of the year This production is directed by a top director and stars a Hollywood star An obviously, there s romance too. Let s talk about the writing first Maggie Harcourt s writing is absolutely phenomenal Most of the Contemporaries auth 3. 5 5 Review to come I came across Theatrical whilst browsing the library website YA contemporary is one of my favourite and most read genres so I m always excited to discover another book in this genre I was also intrigued by the cover and it had me wondering what this book could be about PlotWe first meet Hope as she attends her interview for a stage management placement which she succeeds in getting However, she keeps it a secret from everyone apart from her best friend as her Mum is very well known in the industry and she doesn t want people to think that she only got the placement because of who her Mum is. But as she starts working on a major production she finds that it is harder to keep her placement a secret than she first thought PositivesI love reading books set in the UK my home country because as soon as I start reading I already feel 3. 5 out of 5 StarsBecause sometimes, it s the things that nobody notices which deserve noticing The first time I saw this book in a bookstore was a month ago so obviously I developed an interest in it, because a the cover is the cutest, b it s a YA contemporary one can never go wrong with a YA con , c I was already familiar with the author s other book tho I have yet to read it and d Apparently Maggie Harcourt is the UK version of Rainbow Rowell And because of all this reasons I wanted to give this book a try. My first attempt with Theatrical was a fail, I couldn t get into the story but I also didn t want to dnf it and I m glad I didn t However, my second attempt as you can see was a success. The plot overall was cute, had lots of swoon worthy This is my second Maggie Harcourt book and it has a lot in common with the first It s cute and fluffy, with interesting characters and a decent story There are a few tropes and a few eye roll moments that were just too cute to be real, but nothing unforgivable The romance was really sweet and I liked both characters, and I especially liked that it doesn t overpower the main storyline about Hope taking on a new challenge and proving to everyone and herself that she can do it. Another little thing I liked the play in this book is the stage adaptation of Piecekeepers, the fictitious book that plays a key role in Maggie Harcourt s last book, Unconventional And Lexi and Aiden Haydn get minor cameos too But you don t have to have read Unconventional to read this one they are standalone stories.
