Wow, how to put into words what I felt about this book? I could use as many positive adjectives that I could think of and it still wouldn't come close to describing how inspiring and life changing Hemingway’s Girl was. The book made me feel something for the characters. A book hasn't made me feel this way in a long time. I wanted to be with Mariella at Sloppy Joe’s watching all the drunk men argue. Hell, I wanted to be her. I was envious of the way she was getting attention from Gavin and Hemingway. When I read the book and she was happy, I was happy for her. When she was sad, I felt pity and sympathy for her. I fell absolutely head over heels for Ernest Hemingway. He had a quirky personality that I adored. He seemed wise beyond his years. Even when he was acting like a jerk and having a temper tantrum, he was still sexy. The ending left me emotionally devastated. I cried for about ten minutes. I’m still having troubles coming to terms with it, even though it’s the day after I finished it. Thank You Erika Robuck for making reading fun again and not just something I do for a job.

Darlene Ruiz gosh darn it you make me want to read this

Kayla Eklund I definitely recommend it. It was the best book I've read this year, and I've read over 150 of them. Within the next couple days, I'll have a giveaway going on my blog for a print copy.
