Love à la Mode Reviews
Full review soon. For now, let me just say... I LOVED THIS SO MUCH!!! 💖💖💖💖💖
----FULL REVIEW BELOW----
A delightful read! Deliciously addictive!
I read Stephanie Kate Strohm’s Prince in Disguise during the 2017 holiday season and absolutely devoured it. With Love à la Mode, she’s now on my (very short) must-read author list.
Henry is in high school, but he’s been chosen out of thousands of applicants to attend one of the most elite cooking programs in the world—a year in Paris! It’s his wildest dream ...more
2.75 stars. I received a digital ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This was a cute book about two aspiring teen cooks who make it into an exclusive cooking school. Henry is a fantastic cook while Rosie struggles with the basics but excels at baking. It is her everything. I was attracted to the premise because I'm a big baker and I love baking romances, even when they're YA.
I felt that this book was pretty average for me. I enjoyed it but nothing stood out and it basically ende ...more
Rating: 4.5 Stars
Paris is a city associated with lights, love, and culinary delights. Henry and Rosie were both making their way there to join an elite high school culinary program, which was an important stepping stone for them both. For Rosie, it was a way for her to discover the world outside of her small town. For Henry, it was a way for him to prove to his mother, that he had the talent and the ability to succeed in the culinary world. But, would there also be room them to find love?
As alwa ...more
3.5, rounded up to 4 stars, because Strohm's style is always worth it.
Rosie and Henry share a passion for cooking, although the two come from very different backgrounds. Together with kids from all over the world, they have enrolled into a famous cooking school in Paris for a whole year.
This is a little bit Anna and the French Kiss, but the romance isn't as involving. As I mentioned, it's the author's style that makes it all worth it. While the romance was basically needless drama when it was ob ...more
OH MY GOSH YOU PRECIOUS, ADORABLE, CUTE LITTLE BOOK. I love you. I love food. I like cute romance. I like amazing friendship groups. I love baking. I love this book. And now I want to watch cooking and baking shows all day. Well done, cute book, well done.
This book is so adorable! It's not very similar to Anna and the French Kiss at all other than Paris boarding school & a great friend group, but those Paris vibes took me back! I think the characters were all very realistically and authentically written, as teens and their individual personalities, and i loved the slow burn/quick burn romance. It kept me on my toes! Definitely another winner from SKS.
Keep in mind, just as with your fave Food Network/Gordon Ramsey shows, the frequent and lengt ...more
As sweet as dessert, Love à la Mode is the perfectly delicious rom-com that fans of Stephanie Perkins and Morgan Matson will devour!
I am a sucker for A) meet-cutes, B) boarding schools, and C) food! Guess what has all of these elements?! Henry and Rosie are adorbs, and are such a sweet couple to fall in love with. I really enjoyed the characterization of the main characters. I felt like their responses were real, which is such an important aspect of contemporaries. If I don't think the teens are ...more
Love the thrill of Chopped Teen? Kids Baking Championship? Throw those together with some of the cutest elements of romance tropes and you've got Stephanie Kate Strohm's latest novel, LOVE A LA MODE.
Embracing one of my favorite genres of television, this book was fun to read, from the name dropping of famous chefs, restaurants, and shows to the look at what a culinary high school might look like for our cast of characters from across the globe). Foodie and romance fans alike may well find somet ...more
