First Impressions: Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren

Hi there ๐Ÿ™‚

So today I wanted to share my thoughts on Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating. It has been sitting on the Kobo shelves for months now! I got it for super duper cheap, like 0.99 cents or something crazy! I have been wanting to read it because I’m getting more and more into chick-lit style books and everyone says this is such a good one. So, finally, I have picked this one up and I AM HAPPY I DID!


First impressions: So, this book is actually hilarious. I am about 45 pages in and I am impressed. Like, I have actually laughed out loud a few times. It is super funny. I have never experienced this before with a book!! I think Hazels character is just perfect. She is funny, crazy, has no filter, and is so genuinely herself which is just so heartwarming. It is also so perfect that her character is teacher, I think that is really fitting. I think we all knew someone in high school/ college that became a teacher and we were like oh…….. that’s not good ๐Ÿ˜‚. She also has the most hilarious, weird, different relationship with Josh!

Josh is an interesting character to me. So far, I enjoy him, but he hasn’t fully won me over yet. There’s something about him I’m not connecting with but I feel like that will blow over just based on how cute and funny this book is. I’m sure he will open up and become a better character with time.

I just cannot get over the writing and how comical it is. I am so pleasantly surprised by it and I do not want to put it down (but I have to because work and stuff ๐Ÿ™„).

What did you think of this one? If you haven’t read it, do you think you will?

  2. This is probably my favourite (okay it’s tied for first) CLo book! I laughed so so much. Hazel is such a gem and I swear, everyone needs to have a hazel in their life! They’re so opposite but Josh and Hazel fit together so perfectly. There’s really no way I can picture them with other people ๐Ÿ˜‚ I hope you continue loving the rest of the book!


    1. Totally agree with that!! Hazel is so funny and I would love to have a person like that in my life! Just so wholesome hahah. Really happy I picked this up, especially right now! Its great to have something to laugh at ๐Ÿ˜Š


  3. This sounds brilliant! I love a book that make you laugh out loud. Iโ€™ve not read something like it for ages. My TBR may extend a little bitโ€ฆ oops. Love your content, canโ€™t wait to see the final review!
