    ARC provided by Berkley in exchange for an honest review. My Tom Hanks is out there, and I m not going to settle until I find him I m not going to lie to you all, I have been dreading writing this review This is probably the book that has disappointed me the most in 2019, so far I thought it was going to be a cute romcom about a girl, working on a movie set, falling in love And I suppose it was, but it also has so much bad and infuriating things also in this story Waiting for Tom Hanks is about a girl named Annie who you guessed it is in search of her life s romcom hero, who she thinks she deserves to be swept off her feet by And what better way to look for prospects, than to work on a movie that your uncle pulls strings for you to be the director s new assistant And on her first day at set, she meets Drew, the star of this romcom that is being filmed If there was ever a man who was the complete and polar opposite of Tom Hanks, it would be Drew Danforth The ...

    Super cute The rom com nostalgia in Waiting for Tom Hanks is strong so don t be surprised when you get the urge to watch all your favorite romantic comedies from the past few decades to keep the feel good vibes flowing Not a bad way to spend a weekendor a sick day Just sayin My favorite quote It doesn t matter how someone in a romantic comedy affords their absurdly nice house, or whether or not their profession makes sense, or if technically they re sort of stalking someone they heard on a call in radio show What matters is that they have hope Sure, they find love, but it s not even about love It s the hope that you deserve happiness, and that you won t be sad forever, and that things will get better It s hope that life doesn t always have to be a miserable slog, that you can find s...

    I m between 4 and 4.5 stars I m starting to think that the movies I ve dedicated my life to may have lied to me Nora Ephron herself may have indirectly lied to me Tom Hanks, as much as I ve trusted him, may have lied to me Because I have it all the sympathetic backstory, the montage of humiliations minor and major, unrealized career aspirations, the untamed pre makeover hair But still, I wait Single, lonely, Hanks less Annie Cassidy believes in love Or accurately, she believes in the love she has seen in the romantic comedies she grew up watching She and her mother used to watch all those movies, from the screwball comedies of the 1930s and 1940s to the holy grail, the movies written by Nora Ephron which starred Tom Hanks Sleepless in Seattle and You ve Got Mail.Annie knows that her parents, who are both deceased, had a storybook romance, and she believes one is waiting out there for her, too All she needs to do is to find her Tom Hanks, the steadfast, kind, romantic man from the movies, maybe one who even owns a houseboat She s even ready for their meet cute.When Annie gets a job on a movie being filmed in her town, as an aspiring screenwriter of rom coms, she feels like this may be the break she needs She meets the film s handsome leading man, Drew Danforth, but isn t impressed by his prankster ways, or that he always seems to be around to witness her most embarrassing moments She discovers that he s a far ...

    This was pure fun Annie is twenty seven years old and loves a romantic comedy These movies are especially important to her for their nostalgia as she watched them with her late mother before she passed away Annie s dating expectations have been influenced by these movies She s literally waiting for her own Tom Hanks to send her an email or arrive at her front door.Annie meets her perfect match, but she may have to figure out how to be his perfect match, too, with all the defenses she s built up I loved the wave of rom com movies that came out in the 90s So much fun and so endearing Waiting for Tom Hanks could fit right in among those movies It s charming, sweet, and oodles of fun I also get the feeling there may be a second book in the works based on the amazing supporting key players here Overall, this was a quick, warmhearted, charming read, perfect for summer, and an especially g...

    4.5 starsWaiting For Tom Hanks is another book that took me out of my normal and it was one I didn t really have high hope of controlling my eyes from rolling Well, let me tell you just how much I loved this one There might have been some dancing going on after reading this with the way this one wrapped up I was so pleased by that ending Maybe there is hope for this unromantic sole Waiting for Tom Hanks is a fresh modern take on a rom com and if I was to sum it up in one word it would be irresistible However, there is so much to this one The story has all the plot elements to a rom com and at times it did feel it was going to go in the direction of those predictable, overused plot lines but nope Kerry Winfrey keeps it fresh, spinning a very interesting, entertaining, hilarious, heartfelt story here I loved the colorful, quirky and very likable characters in this story and the dynamics between them I really enjoyed following Annie through her conflicts and adventures as she searches for her Tom Hanks I loved the ending, did I mention that already It was on the super romantic side that is known in rom com but in such a unique comical way I was at the edge of my seat, rooting for our couple and thoroughly entertained by the dynami...
