ARC provided from the publisher(Delacorte Press) via Netgalley+ in exchange for an honest review  (Thank you, Publisher!!)

Hey!! Ever since the book’s blurb and cover had been released and I had being dying to read this one . A train journey and a romance on the top of that sounds to good to be true ! I had requested this book ages ago but finally two days ago I received the ARC. I was squealing in delight . I think I have some special preference for YA contemporaries and whenever I find them , I just devour them . Also lately I have been reading thrillers and contemporary ones.  Well, lets talk about the book !!

My Rating : 4 Stars

Plot : Having just been dumped by his girlfriend, British-born Hugo is still determined to take his last-hurrah-before-college train trip across the United States. One snag: the companion ticket is already booked under the name of his ex, Margaret Campbell. Nontransferable, no exceptions.Enter the new Margaret C. (Mae for short), an aspiring filmmaker with big dreams. After finding Hugo’s spare ticket offer online, she’s convinced it’s the perfect opportunity to expand her horizons.When the two meet, the attraction is undeniable, and both find more than they bargained for. As Mae pushes Hugo to explore his dreams for his future, he’ll encourage her to channel a new, vulnerable side of her art.

The story begins with a nonrefundable train ticket across America , and Hugo,a brit needs a Margaret Campbell (because his GF broke up ) for the train journey where he sort of wants to discovers himself and his life other than being a sextuplet. On the other hand there is Mae , budding filmmaker but aspiring to do more . When these characters meet sparks fly and there is a insta kind of love , and as the journey progresses and the time they spend together , they start to ponder over there life paths and discover they are at ease together.

Basically , it is a story of two teens deciding what to do in their life . The story is adorable and so cute and fluffy . Hugo and Mae had such a great chemistry and adorable in every ways especially Hugo. I love Jennifer E. Smith’s style of writing, there’s everything that I need: lovely flowing style of writing, sense of humour, believable characters, warmth, love and moral on the things that are most important in life. I know the book was a light read but it did address some issues light heartedly.It would hardly take more than 3 – 4 hours in gorging this book , a journey of two teens figuring their life in a train trip across US with a dash of romance . Overall, Field Notes for Love is an entertaining read !!!

  2. I’ve just read this and will be writing up my blog post in the next few weeks. On the one hand, as you say, it’s a really charming, breezy read, but on the other I rolled my eyes a bit at some of the cutesiness. I wish Mae had been able to figure her movie out on her own, without the two boys telling her that her style was “impersonal.”

    1. I personally loved the book because I was in for a light read and maybe the blurb was also suggesting the same, but I totally agree with your point as well !!
      Actually wait to read your thoughts on the book!!🤗


  3. I haven’t ever heard of the author but it sounds like the book I’d like to read now. I’ve been looking for fun and light YA books with believable characters for a while
