Reviews Dating Disasters of Emma Nash

  • Tatiana
    3.5 starsIf you like Louise Rennison (RIP) and occasionally enjoy a silly romp about teen girls obsessing about boys and acting dumb as much as I do (how else would I relive the sweet memories of me crying in a school bathroom over some pimply boy?), this book is not a bad choice. The humor is not as strong as Rennison’s - it doesn’t land quite the same punch, but a lot of the same elements are here - girl friendships, clueless dating, confli...

    So, you know when a book is constantly blurbed as hilarious and 'laugh-out-loud' worthy, and you get kinda anxious because the expectation is so high for this to be a Funny Book? Well, for me, 'Editing Emma' totally deserved this praise! It's actually a miracle, because I find it really difficult to get on board 'funny books' as they often feel like rehearsed skits to me. But Emma's relationship with all of the guys she dates, her best friends an...

    4 “My belly hurts from all the laughter” Stars ”How come, when you do really mundane things on your own, it’s not art, but as soon as you invite people to look at you doing it, it can be art? I feel like that’s a rule that should change. I can be art right here, right now. I can be still unthinking, unfeeling art. Some might say I was just a person sitting and staring into space on a toilet, but they would be wrong.” Disclaimer: Copy ...

    A cute angst riddled YA novel with a cast of characters that carry the authentic voices of actual teenagers. Boy troubles, parental problems, and helping friends with their problems- that is the life of 16 year old Emma Nash. I can definitely see this appealing to a few of my grade 8 and 9 female readers. Thanks to NetGalley for an advanced ebook in exchange for an honest review.

    4.5 starsEditing Emma is such a refreshing read. It is funny in all the right places, witty where it needs to be and honest. Before picking up the book I had heard whispers of comparison to Louise Rennison’s series and it took only a couple of pages for me to see why. It is filled with hilarious anecdotes that are so relatable I couldn’t help but cackle to myself.Emma has been ghosted by her ‘boyfriend’ Leon and after taking what she deem...
  • Stacey (prettybooks)
    Editing Emma features the word 'masturbation' more than any other book I've read. It's crazy, if you think about it, because most of what I read is contemporary YA. The genre is supposed to be realistic. It's supposed to tell stories of what it's like to be a teenager: school, friends, heartbreak, family and everything in between, so you think there'd be more talk of sex. Go you, Chloe.When 16-year-old Emma is 'ghosted' by the boy she is 'dating'...

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Rating: 4.5 starsI picked up this book at the perfect time, while I was going through a period of self-realisation. (You can read about it in my mid-year review.) Why perfect? Because this book is all about Emma and her own self-discovery. Yes, there's a lot going on in it to do with boys and school and so on, but those aren't the point. Editing Em...
  • Thamy
    Reminiscent of early-2000's YA's, this funny story goes about a teenager trying to understand the end of her relationship and move on.Since she's been ghosted by her then boyfriend and now Anna/Apple's boyfriend Leon, Emma blogs about how she's not coping at all. Until she reaches a big low and decides it's time to stop stalking Leon and Apple and edit herself. The story follows her disastrous attempts to find a replacement for Leon when he is al...
  • Cyn
    2 stars :/Easy to read since it's written as blog posts. I didn't like Emma. I thought this book was going to have more of Emma's dating mishaps but it was just her getting over this one ass. The humor was not my cup of hot chocolate (I'm not a tea or coffee girl) (view spoiler)[I hate how she handled "dating" PAOLO, just going along with everything he said. (hide spoiler)]

    *NOTE: A review copy of the book was provided in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. I would like to thank the publisher for the copy*Review :🌟🌟🌟 Don’t worry so much about meeting someone else I like. Be a version of MYSELF I like. Editing Emma was light, short and a very summerish contemporary Young-Adult novel. It is told by Emma and her blog updates, which blog this might be we have no idea, but my guess is tumbl...
  • Chelsea
    Yet another books that I was pulled in to the hype for right when it releases. I have to say I was pretty excited to pick this up because who doesn't like reading about other people's lives being a disaster so you can forget about yours for some time. I'm pretty sure that I finished this book in just about two days because it was so easy to read and quick as well. This book is written in blog post form by our main character Emma. Emma has spent ...
  • James
    Initial thoughts: HILARIOUS AND GENUINE AND SO UNEXPECTEDLY GOOD. Time commitment: I read this in like one day, though I would like to re-read it at a somewhat slower pace.What it promises: Too lazy to hunt down my copy mid-book organisation to see what it was billed as, but I'm almost certain it would've been 'laugh out loud.'What it delivers: Genuinely a book that made me LAUGH, multiple times. It's hilarious as fuck, yet doesn't lack substa...

    I received this book on NetGalley in exchange of an honest review. This book was an enjoyable, lighthearted read which I was able to read in an afternoon, however I felt that there were some problems. There wasn’t a certain direction the plot seemed to be going so the book seemed drawn out and read like it followed the daily life of Emma, but didn’t really seem to have any interesting points. I found myself getting bored in some sections that...

    *** I received this book for free from Netgalley in return for an honest review ***I really enjoyed this book. Although it was nearly entirely done through blog posts and messages it flowed well. Editing Emma had a lot of themes that I'm sure teenagers these days can relate to and it was quite refreshing to see Emma and her friends all (mostly) discussing masturbation openly and showing that 'yes, this is something girls do too!'Although Emma isn...
  • Allonsythornraxx
    WOW, I really thought I was going to love this book but boy was I wrong. From page one I knew that this book and I were not going to get along. I completely abhorred basically everything about this and I am so mad about it. RTC
  • Mehsi
    I am still not sure what to rate this... on the one hand this was hilarious, fun, and quite awkward.. But on the other hand I wanted to whack Emma a lot of times, her obsession with Leon was creepy and dumb, she treated people like shit (like Greg or Laurence, then again not too caring about Laurence, more soon), she acted like she was all that (no you are not). So I am going for 2.5 stars.This review will be a bit chaotic.At first it was quite s...
  • Leah
    Not a fan of this one. I thought it sounded interesting and it's perfect for Louise Rennison fans... but I just didn't get the hype. It's supposed to be a blog, but I've never seen a blog where someone posts so much, unless it's a Tumblr and even then, it was fairly dull. Yes, it's open about sexuality and stuff but Emma just baffles me. She's clearly suffering after her break up with Leon (which we know nothing about really, so it's kinda hard t...
  • Laura Noakes
    It's not often I read a YA contemp that I can't bare to put down. I have owned this book for a matter of hours and already devoured it. This is fresh and funny, and Emma's voice is so authentically teen like I'm still half convinced she's a real-life blogger.I adored the convo's about sex, masturbation, feminism and sexuality--because, THESE ARE THINGS TEENS TALK ABOUT!This is a bit of a rambling incoherent review, but as a tween/tween I remember...
  • Holly Sparks
    WHAT A HILARIOUS AND UTTERLY AMAZING READ!! Chloe Seager you are officially a queen. This book had me laughing like I had just swollen chewits the wrong way and then spat them back out on my brothers neck or something! Gosh...I cannot explain how awesome this book is. I won't stop recommending this now—to like EVERYONE!Emma was an exquisite and refreshing main lead who I just really want to be BFF's with and throw cookies at! Five stars to this...
  • Hélène Louise
    A very engaging read, with a lot of British humour, a modern point of view (the whole intrigue is around social medias) and an interesting heroin.The book isn't a romance, but much more the psychological evolution of Emma, who makes wrong choice over wrong choice, but learns trough them.I'll certainly read the sequel!
  • Sapphire
    3.5 starsI didn't really like Emma and her mopiness was really annoying. But there are some surprising insights and hilarity scattered across the book. And I loved Faith and Steph. So it was worth the read.
  • Christine
    From the perspective of a teacher: WHERE IS THIS SCHOOL'S BEHAVIOUR POLICY? WHY ARE THEY ALL ON THEIR PHONES IN LESSONS? WHY DON'T THE TEACHERS JUST CONFISCATE THE PHONES?Also: Emma would be really irritating to teach, what with the constant lateness, chattiness, going-to-the-toilet-to-go-on-the-phone-ness and general on-the-phone-ness.That said, if the school/teachers had better behaviour management going on, these things probably wouldn't be a ...
  • theresa 🌸🥑
    i LOVED this book so was such a fun and easy read.Emma is one of my favourite MC and so hilarious and honest.also all the Gilmore Girls references warmed up my soul.also Leon is a dICk.🙄
  • Samantha (WLABB)
    This was hilarious, but as I was laughing, I was also reflecting on some the thoughts Chloe shared with us about being a young woman, being a friend, being yourself, and finding your passion. Emma thought she had a boyfriend, but then learned her was "in a relationship" via social media. After wallowing in self-pity for some time, she decided to "move on" by finding someone to replace Leon. These dating disasters were quite hilarious for me and q...
  • Alessandra Crivelli
    A story about friendship and finding our trueself.I read this book through my first week of fever and it was quite enjoyable. It is definitely a fast reading: written and told though blogging and diary form. There are a lot of TV and movie references. I love when book have real conversation with tvshow references. I always talk with quotes and references that it seems always so odd when I read a contemporary and find no movie talks. What is wrong...
  • Lauren R.
    Hmmmm. I’m a little mixed on this one. I did laugh out loud a few times even though Emma was kind of a tough character to get on board with. I liked her relationships with her friends a lot. Her boy-craziness was understandable, if I put myself back in the shoes of my 16 year old self. The ending was a little abrupt for me though? I think it was probably the right ending, but parts were anticlimactic and predictable as well.
