I Believe In A Thing Called Love



Desi Lee believes anything is possible if you have a plan. That's how she became student body president. Varsity soccer star. And it's how she'll get into Stanford. But- she's never had a boyfriend. In fact, she's a disaster at romance, a clumsy, stammering humiliation magnet whose botched attempts at flirting have become legendary with her friends. So when the hottest human specimen to have ever lived walks into her life one day, Desi decides to tackle her flirting failures with the same zest she's applied to everything else in her life. She finds guidance in the Korean dramas her father has been obsessively watching for years-where the hapless heroine always seems to end up in the arms of her true love by episode ten. It's a simple formula, and Desi is a quick study. Armed with her "K Drama Steps to True Love", Desi goes after the moody, elusive artist Luca Drakos-and boat rescues, love triangles, and staged car crashes ensue. But when the fun and games turn to true feels, Desi finds out that real love is about way more than just drama. - excerpt from book.

I Believe In A Thing Called Love by Maureen Goo caught my eye through that cutesy girl with her sweet floral skirt cover, so I approached it at the store reading the summary. The word K Drama attracted my attention easily and then ten pages in I was hooked. This is a standalone book highlighting the events of a high school girl chasing after love. I was entertained from start to the end and I love those moments when the author addresses a certain Korean Drama scene. This book definitely portrayed some of my love for Korean Drama. 

There was this section that truly expresses my love:
"Yeah, the stories could be formulaic, downright cliched at times, but with the strong characters, it all worked. Characters that you rooted for, that you hated with the heat of a thousand suns, that you crushed on hard-core, that you envied, that you cared about. They were more real than anything that Oscars served up."
