Preview — Love Literary Style by Karin Gillespie
Love Literary Style
If the entire blurb alone wasn’t cute and fun enough, the part that compared it to Legally Blonde totally sucked me in. That’s such a fun movie and I was definitely intrigued by the idea of a book in the same style. I’m so pleased to say that the comparison is absolutely accurate!
Laurie and Aaron meet at a writers colony and due to a case of mistaken identity, he believes he has finally found his literary match. Unbeknownst to him, Laurie is ...more
Ramona was a fan of paranormal romances... It seemed odd that someone who liked to read about werewolf sex could accuse her of writing unrealistically.
If you want imperfect, why bother reading romance? You can simply go to a singles' bar and flirt with a guy who picks his teeth with a knife.
To Aaron, all the coffee shops seemed similar. They all had too-clever names. (This one was called Brewed Awakening.) They all hung jarring amateur art on the walls and employed scary-looking ...more
I didn't care for Laurie (too ditzy, for starters) but I love Aaron (great character growth). Aaron’s father is another character who can’t be dismissed. For all that I didn’t like Laurie, her scenes w ...more
This quirky, well-written, and downright hilarious novel is the intellectual’s romantic comedy. Like literary styles themselves, the story chronicles the diversity and dilemmas of opposing genres, via the love story of Aaron Mite, a highbrow writer of “true literary ficti ...more
This was the first one I have read by Karin and I loved it. I had never even heard of this author and here she has a ton of books! Well I better get reading!
Yes, this book was fun, quirky, and cute (really cute) but it wasn't all fluff. It was also very interesting. I love the behind-the-scenes look at getting a book published. And of course being a huge fan of chick-lit I loved the "genre fiction vs literary fiction" theme of this story, it made for an extremely fun read. A story all ...more
Meet novelist Professor Aaron Mite. He lives in a flea-infested rented alcove, and his girlfriend Emma, a mean, rude bookstore owner, has just dumped him. He meets Laurie Lee at a writers’ colony and mistakenly believes her to be a renowned Genius M ...more
Translation: A romantic comedy with a Happy Ever After that left me smiling.
The world of authors and publishers is just as class-conscious as any other industry; Indie, Genre, Literary. Every author is judged on their association and every publishing level has expectations of their authors when it comes to social networking and book launching responsibilities.
When Laurie Lee is mistaken for Laura T Leer, she finds herself at a writers' ...more
I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways.
Yes, there is definitely a love story as a case of mistaken identity leads to an aspiring literary writer falling in love with a self-published romantic comedy writer. The relationship between the two is handled with humor, but also with a depth o ...more
This was a very interesting story. Not just the romance, but the way that it was written. I’m still thinking about that part.
The story is a romance between an aspiring literary novelist and an aspiring romance novelist. She finds his litfic dreary, and he thinks her romance is purely drivel. Of course, they are both wrong.
As the book begins we are following the literary fiction author, the unfortunately named Aaron Mite. Because frankly, his ego, his confid ...more
I had nothing to fear with Love Literary Style. Gillespie wrote a perfectly entertaining and thought-provoking account of Laurie Lee, novice romance novelist, and her meet-cutie Aaron Mite, fancy schmancy highbrow lit fic writer extraordinaire. Their ups and downs totally work. Th ...more
Laurie and Aaron meet by chance at a writer's colony, plus he thinks she is a famous author. Laurie writes romance novels and is looking for a fling to enhance her life experiences and expand her writing knowledge. What they don't expect to find is love.
Aaron's character is very snobbish. He is a literary fiction writer and thinks that anyone that writes anyt ...more
I became a huge Karin Gillespie fan after reading her Dollar Daze Girls series so I was really looking forward to Love Literary Style. This author did not disappoint. Aaron Mite is the nerdy writer who believes his style of writing is the only way to write.
While at a writers' colony he meets Laurie Lee, a romance writer, and is attracted to her but thinks she is someone else. Laurie Lee is far from Aaron's type. S ...more
I enjoyed the writer’s treatment of the issue of genre fiction vs. literature and the preconceived notions some people have about the different types of work and their authors. Laurie’s enthusiasm for writing and her determinat ...more
Aaron is on the cusp of a promising career, but he's having trouble navigating the "new" publishing world where he's expected to have a social media presence and promote his novel. He's also a snob, who is quick to judge other writers.
Emma isn't the best writer, but she has wonderful ideas and she's beginning to have a small following in the world of self-publishing. She loves romantic comedies and that is what she writes. She wants ...more
I didn't expect to enjoy Love Literary style so much,this is one of those books you love or despise and I adored it.
This was the first time I've read Karin Gillespie work but her writing made me a new fan.
I liked her flawed characters,her humour and the fascinating insights into the book world.
Laurie,our heroine, is my favorite character.I liked her vitality,her positive attitude and good soul.
I'm not ashamed to say that we share the love for rom-com and chick lit.
Aaron is the character who sur
