Pining For Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

Expected Publication: April 4, 2017
Genre: YA, Contemporary Romance

In this delightfully charming teen spin on You’ve Got Mail, the one guy Bailey Rydell can’t stand is actually the boy of her dreams—she just doesn’t know it yet.

Classic movie buff Bailey “Mink” Rydell has spent half of her junior year falling for a sensitive film geek she only knows online as “Alex.” Two coasts separate them until she moves in with her dad, who lives in the same California surfing town as her online crush.

Faced with doubts (what if he’s a creep—or worse?), Bailey doesn’t tell Alex she’s moved to his hometown. Or that she’s landed a job at the local tourist trap, the oddball Cavern Palace Museum. Or that she’s being tormented daily by Porter Roth, a smart-alecky yet irritatingly hot museum security guard. But when Porter and Bailey are locked in the museum overnight, Bailey is forced to choose whether she should cling to a dreamy fantasy in Alex or take a risk on an imperfect reality with Porter. The choice is both simpler and more complicated than she realizes, because Porter Roth is hiding a secret of his own: Porter is Alex. Approximately.

Why I'm Pining For It

I laid my eyes on this synopsis, and just like that I was a goner. I've never actually watched You've Got Mail, though now it's definitely on my list, but the same night I was introduced to this book, I went and watched an old romantic comedy. I never watch old romantic comedies, so that's pretty impressive. The characters just sound super cute, and you all know how much I adore love-to-hate stories; this book definitely has an A Cinderella Story type of feel to it, but potentially better, and I am all for it. I hate that I have to wait another year to read the book, but hopefully all the waiting around will be worth it! Click here to add it to goodreads.
