Last week I went to a Christmas market in Germany with my boyfriend. That meant I would be sitting on a bus for around 3 hours there and 3 hours back. Of course reading is the perfect way to spend that time!
I was actually in the middle of Queen of Air and Darkness, but I needed something that would be a bit easier to concentrate on while being in a bus and tired. A couple of friends of mine have been recommending Let’s Get Textual for quite some time, so I decided to finally give it a go!
A wrong number is supposed to be just that—a wrong number.
Do not continue to text. Do not flirt.
A wrong number shouldn’t be the first person on your mind in the morning, or the last at night…and you’re definitely not supposed to talk them into buying a baby goat.
Because that would be weird.
When Zach Hastings and I get into a wrong-number mix-up, we don’t follow the rules. We keep texting and flirting, because he’s wicked funny and perfectly nerdy and a wonderful distraction.
I’m not looking for love, and Zach definitely had the wrong number.
Maybe he’s the right guy.
“Zach: *sends you a thousand cat pictures*
* * *
Me: Don’t threaten me with a good time.”
I think the fact that I finished Let’s Get Textual in one day says enough about how much fun I was having! This book sucked me in right away and I couldn’t help but laugh out loud while being on a bus full of people I really didn’t know!
Who knew text messages in a book could be so much fun?!? I have to admit in this day and age, I don’t know how easily I would continue to talk to a wrong number, but this story is just so cute I could totally understand how this would go!
Delilah is dealing with a breakup and this text message from who she thinks is her brother pops up on her screen. It’s eventually clear that there is something wrong, but these two just can’t stop texting. I love Delilah, because she would rather curl up on her couch on a Friday night with Netflix than party!
“If you think you’re going to Slytherin to my bed with those on, you’re wrong. I only allow full-fledged Hufflepuffs in there.”
Then there’s Zach! I think he’s my favorite male book character in a very long time! He’s nerdy, but so cute and he doesn’t even realize it! Well… maybe a little, haha. He’s romantic and just so sweet, even to someone he doesn’t even know.
Let’s Get Textual is filled with a lot of nerdy references that I love (Harry Potter for example), the weirdest, but sweetest meetcute ever!, a baby goat, really fun text messages and two characters you just can’t help but fall in love with! Going into this book, I never expected to love it as much as I do!! Everyone deserves their own Zach!
Teagan Hunter has an amazing way with words. I loved her characters from the start and an author who can base a book on a lot of text messages is definitely one that I love! I can’t wait to pick up the next one!
Like I said, I’m a big fan of books with e-mails/text messages! What is your favorite book with text messages or e-mails? I would love to add new ones to my TBR!!
