To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love Tom Hanks, and I love Drew. This book was just what I needed and will most definitely be reread whenever I need something cute to lift my spirits. The characters and their relationships are so lovable that I actually think I’ll miss them. Really enjoyed it.
I would give this book ten stars if I could. I laughed out loud. I snorted. It made me want to re-watch a lot of rom coms. It mentions every rom com that I love (including my favorite Jimmy Stewart movie). I try not to choose books for my book club without reading them but I chose this one without reading it first and I'm glad I did and I can't wait to discuss it.
WAITING FOR TOM HANKS by Kerry Winfrey is written for those of us that love 90s romantic comedies that centered around Meg Ryan, Tom Hanks, and the like. There is nothing I didn’t love about this book. As I try to keep my reading lighter over the summer, this book took me through the last two hours of a road trip and is one I will re-read again when I need a laugh or pick-me-up. In a world where everyone is able to watch everyone else, it’s a great play on the foe turned friend theme and it’s hilariously funny and charming. And the little comedy nuggets in this book (like everything about Barry) are priceless. I’m excited that this is a series so we can see how the next book will play out with a different character. If you want to read one book this summer that will make you smile from your toes to your eyelashes and if you are a fan of this genre, grab this one. LOVED IT!
