Love & Gelato
by Jenna Evans Welch
I have spent the last few weeks reading, re-reading, and scouring my shelves for the perfect book for April. I put a lot of pressure on myself to find the perfect fun, frivolous, and romantic read that would provide the escape we’ve all been longing for and that feel-good feeling we’ve all been craving. And for me Love & Gelato is that book. It’s another fabulous YA novel with nods to Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, and Eat, Pray, Love. All books (and movies!) I could read (and watch!) on repeat!
I hope that you enjoy this treat of a book this month and that it brings you a little sunshine!
Lina finds herself in Italy for the summer hoping to connect with her absent father. It was her mother’s dying wish for Lina to pursue this relationship but Lina has her doubts. But before too long she finds her mother’s journal of her own time in Italy and soon Lina is making discoveries left and right. Some about Italy, some about her father, and some about herself.
