Recommends it for: the Emmas of the world
Thank you to NetGalley and Random House Children’s for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

When it comes to romance, there are two types of people. You have your Emmas, your diehard romantics who believe in happily ever after and have fallen head-over-heels in love with love. And then you have your Sophias, who roll their eyes at rom-coms and take a more jaded approach to the whole concept of love and relationships.

I am a Sophia. I don’t hate all romance, but it does take a

This super funny and QUEER AF book is as cute as its cover! It's a great take on MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, set in the present-day NYC high school scene with driven and talented lady leads! ...more

Ever wonder what would happen if you took Much Ado About Nothing, introduced it to Emma, and then plopped it in modern day NY? Then this stunning f/f romcom is definitely for you! Filled with heart, humor, and impressive amounts of wit, this book follows Emma and Sophia and their complicated (turned swoony!) relationship during a film competition.

I was able to read an early version of this story and am more than excited to read it again. And again. And again.

I don't just think I love this book

This is the f/f romcom you've been waiting for!!

I loved everything about the enemies-to-lovers romcom set in fabulous NY! Desombre perfectly captures the feel of being a student in New York, and the chemistry between Emma and Sophia manages to be both swoony and sweet.

This is one of my fav reads of 2019 and 2020 can't get here soon enough!!!

A super cute hate-to-love romance!

This is such a sweet and cute YA romance. Everything about this book feels YA and I mean that in the best way! The characters are teenagers...and shockingly, they read like they are teenagers too! *fake gasp*

I love how imperfect each of the characters are and how they are all trying to figure out who they are and what they want in life. Sophia and Emma are two characters that are really trying to figure out life and I enjoyed being in both of their POV

The cover is so cute I would put a poster of it in my room


If this gets pushed back any further I'm going to forget to buy it, this is ridiculous. - March 2021 currently.

I THINK I LOVE YOU is an absolute DELIGHT!! Auriane Desombre's voice is so fresh and modern, and I adored both Emma and Sophia, along with their (hilariously) scheming groups of friends. This contemporary f/f Much Ado About Nothing retelling stole my heart. ...more

I like that this was a rom-com where the character makes a rom-com movie, cute idea!
Emma is a romantic, her parents have a great relationship and she's on the lookout for her own meet cute. Sophia doesn't believe in love after her parent's relationship imploded and her mom remarried, leaving Sophia behind. Each girl has her own idea for a short film and the constant arguing creates a rift in their friend group. This starts off rumors of crushes, some sabotage, and two girls finding love.

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange of an honest review.

Emma is a die-hard romantic. She believes in love, big gestures and she loves rom-coms, even the bad ones. When the opportunity of making a short film and win a trip to a film festival in Los Angeles occurs she decides to do a perfect bi rom-com with her friends Myrah, Matt and Tom and her cousin Kate. Her plans are "ruined" when Sophia, Tom's best friend, comes back from Paris, becoming again part of their group, with her more

I Think I Love You is a sweet, funny YA romance novel between two rivals who have two very different ideas on love. I liked the characters, despite being unable to really identify with them. They were a bit childish at times, and they argued pretty much constantly in the beginning - which, to be fair, what's a YA romance without some teenage angst drama? - but as soon as we hit a certain point I was into the story. I guessed the antagonist pretty much right away, so I wasn't too surprised whe

This eARC was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Auriane Desombre’s f/f romantic comedy, I Think I Love You, absolutely swept me off my feet and is a gorgeous LGBTQ+ addition to the YA contemporary genre. I couldn’t get enough of Emma and Sophia’s (adorable) enemies-to-lovers romance, inspired by Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. To be honest, with all of the uncertainty of today’s world, it was a joy to briefly escape reality and get lost in the pages o

This was such a cute story! It absolutely delivered on the rom-com shenanigans front, and there were some really nice slightly-meta (but very natural in the story) moments about how rom-coms as a whole are very straight, and how important representation is.

As generally light and happy as this book is, its biggest strengths were its more serious moments. Two major subplots are Emma considering coming out to her parents and Sophie dealing with the aftermath of her parents' divorce. Both were done

I Think I Love You is such a gloriously funny, sweet book. Sophia stands out as one of my favorite YA characters I've read lately, at first prickly and somewhat difficult but, we learn, with good reason. I adored her arc throughout the book and it was so fun to see her and Emma clash. The banter in this book? TOP. NOTCH.

I was lucky enough to read an early copy of this book and honestly can't wait to get my hands on it and read it over and over and over again when I'm sad, because it just brin

I don’t have enough words for how much I love this book! Hilarious, charming, swoony, adorable, it’s absolutely everything I love about romcoms. The enemies to lovers aspect works so well in this setup, the banter is beyond cute and funny and even though both girls are on opposing sides, you end up falling for and rooting for both of them. They bring out the best in each other and show each other there is so much more than what you see on the surface and assume. I smiled the whole time reading t ...more

Thank you to NetGalley and Underlined for this e-arc in exchange for an honest review!

I’m always looking for a funny, feel good romance that is queer. I so very much wanted to love this book, but I only ended up liking it. I felt that overall, there were some really good points in the book, and at other times the book fell really low and didn’t do anything for me. First off, I want to say how much I loved the rep in this book. It was one of my favorite parts. We’ve got bi Emma (hi, yes, I am AL

Wow, frankly I'm impressed at just how awful this was. Not only was it a bad book, but it was a terrible retelling of Much Ado About Nothing. The author didn't make a single decision I agreed with, and I was just incredibly angry this whole book.
First, both main characters were so unlikeable and annoying. The character that was based on Beatrice was totally one dimensional.
Second, their banter was atrocious. One of the more important parts of Much Ado About Nothing, in my opinion, is the banter

3.5 stars. i think this is a pretty solid debut novel!

first of all, this cover is gorgeous!! probably most of the reason i requested it ;) and it's sapphic so what's not to love?

i really really loved the sapphic representation in this book - especially Emma being bi because i related to that so much. i still haven't come out to my parents because of the exact same reasons so i really connected with Emma as a character. also, i just absolutely loved the romance between Emma and Sophia so much.
