Thank you so much to Inkyard Press for having me as a part of their blog tour for the Code for Love and Heartbreak! I’m running so behind on reading all of the books I really need to be reading, so even though this book came out on Tuesday (the 6th) and I was trying to have it read and reviewed by yesterday, I wasn’t able to get to it until today BUT I started it early this afternoon and I finished it so fast because it was such a fun/quick read!
The Code for Love and Heartbreak 4/5 Stars
Summary from Goodreads: Emma Woodhouse is a genius at math, but clueless about people. After all, people are unreliable. They let you down—just like Emma’s sister, Izzy, did this year, when she moved to California for college. But numbers…those you can count on. (No pun intended.)
Emma’s senior year is going to be all about numbers, and seeing how far they can take her. When she and George, her Coding Club co-president, are tasked with brainstorming a new project, The Code for Love is born—a matchmaking app that goes far beyond swiping, using algorithms to calculate compatibility. George disapproves of Emma’s idea, accusing her of meddling in people’s lives. But all the happy new couples at school are proof that the app works. At least at first.
Emma’s code is flawless. So why is it that perfectly matched couples start breaking up, the wrong people keep falling for each other and her own feelings defy any algorithm? Emma thought math could solve everything. But there’s nothing more complex—or unpredictable—than love.
This book was so, so cute! I loved how Emma really came into her own throughout the book, and like sure, she didn’t have all of the answers, but she was more confident by the end of the book and awwwww the ending made me so happy! I loved Emma and George and all of the coding club really. Izzy annoyed me slightly at times, but at the same time, I remember being a freshman in college and not being as cognisant about the feelings of the rest rest of my family. I remember thinking that their lives revolved around my relationships. This book was the feel good, fun read that I didn’t know I needed at the end of this week and I definitely think that y’all should read it too!
