Today, I'm discussing a Christina Lauren favorite, Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating.
Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren
Hazel Bradford knows she’s a lot to take—and frankly, most men aren’t up to the challenge. If her army of pets and thrill for the absurd don’t send them running, her lack of filter means she’ll say exactly the wrong thing at the wrong time. Their loss. She’s a good soul in search of honest fun.
Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her playfulness proved completely incompatible with his mellow restraint. From the first night they met—when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes—to when she sent him a bold email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air.
Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there’s nothing between them...right?
Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating was my first time reading Christina Lauren, but it certainly won't be the last.
This is a fun and quirky love story that features captivating characters and a delightful storyline. Lauren's narrative is lighthearted, engaging, and enchanting.
The novel starts off by depicting the contrasting personalities of Hazel Bradford and Josh Im. But as the tale progresses, the unexpected pair of friends grow closer as their string of double blind dates go horribly wrong.
This comical novel is sure to stay with readers. Hazel and Josh are not only authentic, they're unforgettable.
