Today I have a review of Waiting for Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey, available from Berkley on June 11, 2019!
Photo comment: Dickens decided he needed his own tray, and I decided to work with him. 😂
Annie is twenty-seven years old and loves a romantic comedy. These movies are especially important to her for their nostalgia as she watched them with her late mother before she passed away.
Annie’s dating expectations have been influenced by these movies. She’s literally waiting for her own Tom Hanks to send her an email or arrive at her front door.
Annie meets her perfect match, but she may have to figure out how to be his perfect match, too, with all the defenses she’s built up.
I loved the wave of rom com movies that came out in the 90s! So much fun and so endearing! Waiting for Tom Hanks could fit right in among those movies. It’s charming, sweet, and oodles of fun. I also get the feeling there may be a second book in the works based on the amazing supporting key players here.
Overall, this was a quick, warmhearted, charming read, perfect for summer, and an especially good match for rom com fans!
I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.
Can a romcom-obssessed romantic finally experience the meet-cute she always dreamed of or will reality never compare to fiction, in this charming debut adult novel from Kerry Winfrey.
Annie is twenty-seven years old, single, and obsessed with romantic comedies (she and her mother watched them religiously, before her mom died). Her dating life is limited by the expectations she’s formed from these movies. She is not as open to new experiences as she might be, because she’s waiting for her Tom Hanks–i.e., a guy she’ll find in the perfect, meet-cute romantic comedy way. When Annie does finally meet her perfect match, it’s not quite in the way she expected, and she’s forced to reckon with the walls she’s built around herself over the years.
