Cute Easy Summer Read
So since reading Textrovert, I've found out that this was originally a semi different story than what it is now. It seems like a lot of people are judging this work based on Lindsey's old work and that just doesn't seem right to me. So i just want to start off by saying, if you decide to read this book you should go in to it with an open idea, because from what I understand it's not the same as her original work on Wattpad.
That being said though, Textrovert was exactly the cutesy contemporary read that I was looking for. I have to say that Keeley really did pull me in from the start. Being in the time that we are and knowing that a lot of relationships start out online, I felt like this was such a cute way to look at things. How often do you accidentally switch phones with someone, let alone neither of you have a password set up! I mean come on, it's just fate.
So when Keeley and Talon start being forced to talk to each other to relay messages and we see their relationship actually become more than acquaintances I was beyond excited. Especially because I knew at some point these two were going to have to met, unlike most online relationships out there today. That little added bonus of knowing that there would be a physical meeting made me want to speed through the entire book.
Surprisingly enough, them switching phones is just the beginning and there is SO MUCH more story afterward. Which made me even more excited because the more I read the more I wanted to see what was going to happen. I'll be honest, a lot of the plot twists in this were very predictable for me, but the way that they were handled was not so predictable. Plus there was one at the end that completely threw me but I very much like the way it was handled.
All in All Textrovert is a very cute summer read that you are going to want to get your hands on. Keeley is such a likable character even with all of her supposed flaws, Zach is the annoying brother character that most of us all know, and Talon, oh Talon, even with his crazy flip flopiness he is still a heart throb that every time he said the words baby doll my stomach did little flips. If you haven't already, I'd suggest grabbing this book for a quick and super cute summer read!
I remember reading this numerous times on Wattpad. First, when she was still updating it, and second, when I saw the DoNotMicrowave profile on my following list. Even though I knew what was going to happen, it was amazing each time. Even today, I get little butterflies in my stomach and find myself smiling at the screen. All in all, this is an amazing story and I love it. Will read many times!
Absolutely love this book!!!
