I Think I Love You by Auriane Desombre

Summary

The chance of a lifetime comes in the form of a school email – an opportunity to enter the high school division of the NYC-LA Film Festival and compete for internships and scholarships. For Emma, a huge romantic, this is the chance she’s been waiting for to see herself onscreen, convince her parents to let her go to film school, and maybe even come out to them. But when Sophie unexpectedly comes back from Paris and inserts herself into the plans, the drama may not just be on camera.

Review

If you’re looking for a sweet hate-to-love/rivals-to-lovers story, I Think I Love You is the book for you! This book is a light read, serious at times but balanced with sweetness. The characters are high schoolers and act the part. They can be dramatic and argue over seemingly petty things, but have moments of maturity. The plot is rather straightforward and doesn’t require too much deep analysis for the most part. As someone who doesn’t read many books like this, it was strange to read a book with such a plot in a setting I’m relatively familiar with!

Unfortunately, the characters didn’t always do it for me. Both of the main characters got a bit annoying at times, and though I could usually understand where they were coming from, their reactions to situations could be a bit over the top. I also thought there was far too much miscommunication and meddling. None of the characters seemed to be able to give others the chance to figure things out on their own. Friends setting each other up can be cute to a certain extent, but this book gets to the point where two people can hardly make a decision without the others involving themselves. All in all, I Think I Love You is a cute story with realistic characters and a sweet message – love can be found even in the most unexpected of places.

Yours in love and literature, Page.
