I'm not going to lie, I went into this book with very high expectations. I mean, I LOVED The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (also by Jennifer E. Smith), so I thought I would like this book as much as that one. Sadly this book didn't live up to my expectations. While this book was an okay read, it definitely didn't match the magic of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight.
Here's what I did really like about this book: the writing style was AMAZING. I seriously love how Jennifer writes; how she is able to capture the emotions of the characters and write it so fluently onto the page. I also really like the basic plot premise of this book; how two people could form a relationship through email-and then have them meet in real life. I find it interesting to see how the pair's relationship grows throughout the novel and I really liked Ellie and Graham together!
One thing that really bothered me in This Is What Happy Looks Like, is how I felt that the book ended so unresolved. It just didn't feel like a happy ending to me, it felt more like an okay ending of a book-nothing special that made me want to re-read this book over and over. I also wasn't a huge fan of how Ellie never got to really meet her father...and for some reason that just bothered me throughout most of the book.
Overall, I enjoyed This Is What Happy Looks Like! Was it the best book ever? No. But it was a fun, and enjoyable romance that was a great beach read!
