Bad boys turned good, kisses in the rain, climbing through bedroom windows... It only happens in the movies. When Audrey meets Harry, it’s the start of a truly cinematic romance – or is it? Audrey knows that Harry is every movie cliché rolled into one. But she still chooses to let him into her heart...
Perfect for fans of John Green, It Only Happens in the Movies is a raw, intensely funny takedown of the lies we’re told about relationships.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Audrey is struggling with the wreckage of her parents’ traumatic divorce and a callous break-up of her own. She has given up on love, and we’re offered Audrey's enjoyably passionate denunciations on the happy-ever-after lies spread by movies and the media. Enter Harry. Armed with boyish charm and a rare talent for zombie filmmaking, he provides Holly’s anti-love stance a thorough test. Sharp, honest, and laugh-out-loud funny, Holly Bourne’s radiant novel offers a welcome twist on a regular YA romance.

It was really good, kinda funny in bits, but sad in others. Would recommend 😋
pls read bro
okay, if you live in this completely delusional fantasy land of ending up with the ‘one’ and always getting a happily ever after, prepare yourself for the somewhat brutal reality of love when you read this. I’m so happy that someone has finally written about how insanely STUPID movies actually are (and how deranged we are for actually believing our lives will be just like them!). This book really changes your perspective in the way of combining both humour and hard-hitting topics. Plus, I LOVED the messages of feminism scattered throughout the book. luv this.
An eye opening twist on a romance book. Finally someone who writes it how it is sometimes!!! Still don’t know how I feel about it haha.Will definitely be reading more of Holly’s work!! Worth a read.
