    1. I'm changing my rating to a 5 stars simply because, as soon as I woke up this morning, my first thoughts were of this book! I am in love!The story was about challenging the notion of romantic-comedies or romantic movies in general. How it is not realistic, giving women false sense of security or hope and calling out the misogynistic viewpoints that are ingrained in our society. This is exactly the type of book young girls should be reading and I love that Holly Bourne always challenges particula [...]


    2. I have so many feels about this book. SO MANY!!!! I think it's fair to say that Holly Bourne has fast-tracked her way to the title of my favourite YA contemporary author as this is the second book by her that I have enjoyed in recent days. I love rom-coms. They are my absolute favourite type of film to watch. My personal favourites are any of those Richard Curtis ones with Hugh Grant playing a foppishly dashing leading man! Heck my dog is even named after a dog from a rom-com (Brinkley in You've [...]


    3. Spoiler Free Review5 PERFECT STARS!Trigger Warning: Mental Health, Substance Abuse, possible Self HarmTo begin, I got this in my bookboxclub subscription and for the month of November I've only been reading books from my subscriptions. I've found some really really good reads and this is 1000000% included! Honestly I'm so surprised by how much I enjoyed this.What I liked so much is how it challenges the representation of romance throughout films (I'm also going to include books as well) and how [...]


    4. I really liked how this showed 'real' relationships. How difficult and messy and just downright awful they can be. Exactly the bits we don't see in the movies or in a novel even. I completely agreed with many of the points raised, particularly about those using social media to shout about how wonderful their relationship is. Which is a major pet peeve of mine. Who are they even trying to convince?Anyway, overall I thought it was a great reflection on all things relationship, first love, betrayal [...]


    5. 4,25/5This book was such a refreshing Young Adult contemporary and I just can't get enough of Holly Bourne's books!This book is about cliches in movies and our main character is absolutely sick of them. Someone broke her heart and her mother is having mental problems. She wants to escape her life so she starts working at a cinema. The most stereotypical boy is working at that cinema and you know what happens then.I loved how the book talks about cliche things but still has them in the book to ma [...]



    6. Escritura brillante, una trama original que se burla con cinismo de las películas románticas, y un final inesperado hacen de este uno de los mejores YA contemporaneos que he leído. Me reí, me angustié y casi lloré. TIENEN QUE LEERLO.



    7. I've got so many thoughts on this book, where do I even begin? First off, I am a hardcore lover of romance movies, books, shows etc. So, you might be wondering why a girl like me would even pick up a book that smacks down the notion of romance movies and how they can be full of empty promises and realistic scenarios. Well, this is exactly what intrigues me, as I'll be the first to admit that 90% of romance movies are a tad unrealistic but I think that's what makes me love them. As a sucker for a [...]



    8. Its a story about Audrey, who because of a heartbreak became a bit of cynic. She starts working in a movie theater and that´s when things start to change. Audreys character was a bit annoying at the beginning, she changed her whole life just to avoid her ex-boyfriend. Its not something I can imagine doing myself. To be honest for about 50 pages I was hating this book. There were two possible endings and I absolutely loved the one she went with. If she did anything else I would have no faith in [...]


    9. I really enjoyed this book. Holly writes such honest books with real stories and it's just brilliant to read


    10. Trigger warnings: parent with mental health problems, self harm, alcohol abuse, dubious consent in flashbacks, zombies. 3.5 stars. I was super excited when I heard there was a new Holly Bourne book coming out, because the Spinster Club trilogy is absolutely phenomenal and I love everything about it. So I jumped straight into this one, hoping for more of the same. And I did kind of get more of the same. But I alsodidn't. There's definitely plenty of feminism here. Audrey's sick of the classic tro [...]


    11. UGH I love this. BUT IT MAKES ME SO ANGRY. LIKE . . . thoughts. . . what are they??? This book showed actual REAL relationships in REAL life and important things that I quibble over in contemporaries:- [x] not everyone was a relationship expert at age 17 and hsgbldfghbbgfjfdb. - [x] About how cliches are bs and never actually happen in real life. - [x] Not everyone has everything figured out at 17-19!!!!!!!!!- [x] People have shit going on in their lives. - [x] basically this book was perfect fo [...]


    12. Follow my blog for more posts: hjbookblog"Romance films are money-spinning cathedrals oflove, wobbling on the foundations of unbelievableand damaging stereotypes."‘It Only Happens In The Movies’ is one of my most anticipated read of 2017. It has a fresh take on romantic comedies and tackles all the clichés like a pro. It is different than anything else I have read and smashes the misogyny and sexism deeply ingrained in the society.Each chapter starts off with a movie trope (like a bad boy w [...]



    13. Another version of this review can be found here.Received in exchange for an honest review from Usborne Publishing UK.There's like 671943 things I want to say right now but first off, this book? You need it in your life ASAP.I wouldn't have thought I'd love a Holly Bourne book more than I did What's a Girl Gotta Do? but joke's on me because she has now come up with this absolute perfection and I cannot. I tell you, Holly Bourne has just nailed it. Whatever it is that makes an author just click w [...]


    14. HOLLY BOURNE YOU GENIUS WOMAN. I have had a great time with all the Holly Bourne novels I have read so far. My first read was Am I Normal Yet? which I absolutely loved and adored and encouraged me to finally seek help for my anxiety/ocd. I read that a time where I was doing my GCSE exams and my social anxiety went to an extreme, like pull your hair out kind of thing, and reading this book gave me that confidence to go and get help for it. #empoweringI am a feminist, so when I read What's a Girl [...]


    15. i didn't expect to like it but it's safe to say that i actually love it! i rooted for Audrey the entire book and i didn't get disappointed even a bit. my fellow hopeless romantic friends should read this book too, just because.


    16. Thank god that is finished. I don’t know whether it will be a 2 or 3 star review, but I do know I wasn’t impressed. I’m so glad it was a library book and not one I’d bought. Review to come, but don’t expect it to be glowing


    17. I loved it. Especially the deconstruction of tropes in romantic movies and how that played out in the story and the ending. Plus zombies. And props to Holly for writing a YA book that includes both the characters watching the most famous scene in Cinema Paradiso and a discussion of The Artist is Present and Marina Abromovic!


    18. “The only love affair I needed to invest in right now was one with myself. Spend some time with me. Figuring out myself and why I picked the relationships I did. I was holding out my heart to me. Because I'd realised I was the only person who could give me a happily-ever-after.” This was the first book I've read byHolly Bourne and thankfully, I wasn't disappointed. I liked how the author has taken such an interesting turn with one of the most cliché plots you can find in almost every YA con [...]


    19. Full Book Review also on my blog here: lotsoflivres/2017/09/27/i Well what can I say? This was probably my most anticipated book of the year and Holly Bourne is my favourite author so there was definitely a lot to live up to! I was counting down the days until publication day, but managed to grab an early copy from her London Piccadilly book launch last week (which was so fun and I got the chance to meet so many other book bloggers!) and devoured It Only Happens In The Movies in one sitting. It [...]


    20. Oh goodness, I loved this book to pieces! I found myself reading it from cover to cover in the space of a day. It Only Happens in the Movies is a honest, occasionally hilarious, look at relationships, both romantic and non-romantic. I've said it before about Holly Bourne's novels, and I'll say it again: I honestly wish these books had been around when I was a teenager, as I think they would have helped shape me in the best of ways. Heck, even as an adult they're teaching me a number of lessons a [...]


    21. oooo Purrrfect cover :D D great mood it creates.October gonna be THE BEST month of realises :D:D------This book is really good.Yes granted it is not as good as her spinster club books, but it still has that Holly Bourne quality. The premise is done perfectly, I mean the background of looking at romantic movies and the unnaturalness of them, the mythical space they live in. At the same time the real plot of this book, Audrey working at the cinema with her crazy boss, dealing with her ex at school [...]


    22. Where do I even start when talking about this book? It is everything that I expect a Holly Bourne novel to be and more. I didn't know if Bourne's writing could get any better, but it did It really didAudrey is over romance. Since her parents' relationship imploded her mother's been catatonic, so she takes a cinema job to get out of the house. But there she meets wannabe film-maker, Harry. Nobody expects Audrey and Harry to fall in love as hard and fast as they do. But that doesn't mean things ar [...]


    23. It's official: Holly Bourne has stolen my heart and I need to read everything she has ever written immediately. It Only Happens in the Movies is Holly's latest novel and the first of hers I have read (I swiftly corrected this grave error of judgement by getting two more of Holly's novels, and I have my sights on more).This book is so cleverly written, I had to keep pausing to just absorb what I'd read. Holly starts with a scene from the end of Audrey's story, a cliffhanger, so we have an idea w [...]


    24. Actual rating: 4.7 starsI have few problems with it but let's just talk about how amazing this book is????????It is pure, honest, and most importantly, it is real. The characters are loveable, the family and friendship element was spot on wonderful and the quotes!!!! God. The quotes. I live for the quotes!!!! Every beginning of the chapter/part Holly Bourne started with this sort of survey and research on romance movies as to Audrey has done for her project and I am living for those as well. I l [...]


    25. 4,25 stars!I don’t know how to feel. I loved the story, but I left with some questions to ask. Errrgghhh. This book is soooo good but I don’t know. I feel so conflicted! But I loved it at the same time. Oh no my heart 😢
