    1. 3.5 stars Way than what I was expecting from the cover, this book reads like a trendy contemporary adult romance with an interesting female MC and a lot of feministpower elements The Undateable was my first read from Sarah Title, and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it The cover looked a bit tired, if I m being honest, and didn t reflect the freshness of the story Bernie is a somewhat of a modern woman stereotype She is so concerned with not dressing to please the male gaze and being comfo [...]


    2. Melissa Bernie Bernard is an academic librarian at a small college in California She likes her life She has a great job, good friends and things are nice and quiet They also aren t very exciting and her biggest decision of the day is which grey skirt goes better with her clogs Still, predictable is good Predictable is safe Predictable is, well, predictable But when a flash mod marriage proposal takes over the library one day a random photo of an annoyed Bernie instantly becomes an internet sensa [...]


    3. Trigger warnings I honestly don t think there s anything Look, the second I discovered that there s a series called Librarians in Love and that the books were 1.40 each on Kindle, I was obviously going to read this Was it incredibly predictable Yes Did I know how it was going to end before I was two chapters into it Obviously Was it a hell of a lot of fun Decidedly Did it make me actually laugh out loud Yup Basically Bernie is an academic librarian When a flashmob ends in a proposal for one of h [...]


    4. I received an ARC from the author, who is a fan of my ROMANCE NOVELS FOR FEMIINSTS blog Thanks, Sarah Title Despite its category romance style cover, this is really of a romantic comedy, or perhaps straight out comedy, than a romance Feminist college librarian Melissa Bernie Bernard gets caught frowning at some misbehaving students and finds herself the star of a Disapproving Librarian Internet meme which goes embarrassingly viral Colin Rodriguez, a writer who works for Glaze, a women s fashion [...]


    5. This was a nice change of pace I ve been in a major reading funk and this helped to get me out of it It was an easy read and the characters feel very realistic and modern very millennial Not my usual cup of tea, but this proves I need to drink some different tea often.Reviewed for Affaire de Coeur Magazine affairedecoeur.


    6. WHY CAN T EVERY BOOK BE LIKE THIS Smart, laugh out loud banter with real representations of people who live in this century AHHHHHHHHHHH I like to have something to strive for To strive to change my mind about diminishing myself to make a man look good To convince you that making yourself vulnerable to love doesn t diminish you Bernie is a librarian who doesn t get dressed to please the male gaze femgasm Colin is a privileged writer who never gets turned down A story to save his career throws th [...]


    7. 3.5 stars.I really enjoyed this book, and at some points it was laugh out loud funny Bernie is great and I love her gradual bit of self realization.But how the hell does a woman go on 30 dates in as many days in San Francisco and only date white dudes There s mention of one named Jamal in passing, but who knows, he could have just been a hipster A couple of the people at Glaze might have not been white, and while the hero s last name was of Hispanic origin he seemed to be pretty white too Even i [...]


    8. Well it s official, RavenclawReadingRoom can convince me to buddy read anything with her.Was this book good No But was it enjoyable Yeah, kinda, OK it was It s cute and fun and incredibly ridiculous and predictable in parts, but I enjoyed it and I ll probably read the other two Bernie is sort of badass in her own way and Colin has his moments I guess 2018 Amanda likes feminist nonslut shaming romances I think I might be OK with that.


    9. It would be difficult to describe my level of excitement once I read the description for Undateable The set up was like something out of a 1930 s screwball comedy a down on his luck reporter tries to rehabilitate the image of a social pariah and I LOVE screwball comedies I joined Prime just so I could get this overnighted to me, such was my excitement.And, oh, such was my disappointment This book set in San Francisco and about a woman and a woman s industry fashion felt like it was written by so [...]


    10. A unique premise and likeable characters, along with my favorite kind of arguing all the time through their attraction couple make this book a solid 3 3.5 stars It was a well executed book overall, though at times it felt a little long.It may have been higher, but I really love the development of a relationship in a book, and theirs was built while the heroine was dating other men This left me with fewer butterflies and anxious moments than I tend to like in my romances this might be chick lit, [...]



    11. The Undateable is the first book in the Librarians in Love series by Sarah Title.Melissa Bernard, AKA Bernie, is a librarian It s her ideal job and she s very good at it Nothing very unusual happens until one day a flash mob are in the building Bernie isn t happy about it and unfortunately for her, her disapproving glare was captured for all time in a photograph That photograph was immediately turned into a meme quoting Disapproving Librarian Disapproves Bernie is horrified when she sees the pho [...]


    12. This is a pretty cute book I adored both h h but I wish there had been emphasis on the romance between them I like that they get to know each other so well but the actual romance lacked.Review coming


    13. The Undateable by Sarah Title, is a cute story with some very funny moments I requested this novel because of the book blurb and pretty cover This is the first novel in the author s brand new series, Librarians in Love, and it can be read as a standalone.Bernie Bernard loves her job as a college librarian She thrives on helping the students with their research, in addition to the hustle and bustle of the reference desk Her frumpy appearance contributes to the librarian stereotype and her single [...]


    14. DNF 45%.I found the hero to be a douche, the fashionistas around the librarian to be rather misogynistic Big girl shoes Really , and the heroine to be paper thin in her feminism.As a feminist librarian who has moved between the worlds of being very frumpy dowdy not caring much about my appearance to high fashion cutting edge gay clubs and somewhat back again, I was very excited about the description of the work I was rather dumbfounded when the fashionistas mocked and tweaked the heroine so much [...]


    15. 2.5 stars I enjoyed Bernie s take no prisoners personality, but found the plot kind of improbable and silly particularly at the end Younger readers will likely find this to their taste.


    16. This book wasn t for me I don t mind strong willed or out spoken characters But our heroine, Bernie, was always stating her beliefs, over and over again There is this divide among women at times If you wear makeup and like to shop, you are not a feminist Bernie made a lot of passing judgements, which made it difficult for me to relate to her or root for her.In the same manner, I remember reading an article about She s All That, the1 990s movie and how the the female lead changed, the her male [...]


    17. Maybe overall of a 3.5 but rounded up because the writing was just so intelligent I think the only issues I had were that the book was fairly low key and sometimes slow, not much highs or lows, and that the premise didn t leave a lot of time for the two main characters to build their relationship until closer to the end.But the fact that this author could build an entire story about a woman who became a meme, and social commentary on how people will say dumb things like if only a woman would sm [...]


    18. It s safe to say that I am not the intended audience for this new adult romance It reads like the author swallowed a new adult Facebook thread, with references to adulting, Netflix and chill, resting bitch face, librarianing, etc etc Also, when we meet our hero, he is awakening from a blackout drunk, something I didn t find attractive when I was 18, much less now Although it s supposed to be sending a sort of librarians aren t stereotypes message, it also plays into librarian stereotypes like me [...]


    19. Didn t finish after page 56 This book just could not keep my interest I like that it has a unique plot But the writing needed some help It wasn t poorly written or anything, but the author fell into the trap of being too explainy with her characters inner monologues They go into too much detail and over explain and talk about things that I don t really care about I don t need to hear in great detail about every little thing and about the back story behind every little thing and the back stories [...]


    20. I loved this book I go to the Romance Times Booklovers Convention and I bring home a lot of books, which I dutifully read Some are terrible, some are fine, and sometimes you get a jewel This book is a jewel The writing was smart and I laughed out loud several times.Bernie is smart and funny and she feels like she s fine being herself without trying to make herself up to someone else s standards She s articulate and makes many very good points The story is true to Bernie and she doesn t see the e [...]


    21. I bought this by accident after clicking on it because I liked the title Librarians in Love , how sweet Then I started reading it and read the whole thing It s not great, but not bad This is a low drama, cute book the reading equivalent to watching a safe romantic comedy on Netflix There are some cute parts and I mostly liked the characters I d recommend this book if you re looking for a nice, low pressure, forgettable read.


    22. Bernie is a college librarian who is caught with an unfortunate expression during a proposal Personally, I completely understand Bernie s attitude toward it, but unfortunately, she gets some bad press because of it This attractions the attention of Colin and an online fashion magazine She agrees to go on 30 first dates in 30 days Bernie s dates have a little something for everyone She and Colin learn about themselves and each other over the month that they are together.


    23. 4.5 stars This book was so darn cute I loved the H and h They were quirky and opposites and fun to watch interact with lots of great dialogue This is my first book by this author and I look forward to reading .


    24. Pages read 81Much as I love the concept, the writing isn t strong enough to pull it off Both characters are flat, and I m bored.


    25. How could a librarian like me not love this book A fun, witty, sweet modern romance with enough sass and librarian ness to make it different than most Can t wait for the next book in the series



    26. I wobbled between a 2 and a 3 It definitely had some funny moments, but I never totally connected with either main character See JLReadalong on twitter for thoughts.



    27. Great concept Tons of feminism The romance was a bit too much of a slow burn for me, but I can see why so many people loved this one
