REVIEW: KISSING TOLSTOY BY PENNY REID

Rating: 4 out of 5.

What it is about
Anna accidentally emails a stranger and asks him out on a date. When she shows up at the restaurant she realises her mistake and runs out the back exit. Next semester she finds out that the guy from the date is her Russian Lit professor. 

POV- dual first person 

HEA/HFN- yes

Funny parts- yes

Sad parts- no

Love triangle- no

Insta-love- not really 

Cheating- no

Super insecure character- yes

Trigger warning- none 

Realistic scale- 1/5 

Pick this up if
You want a short, cute and funny romance. You like forbidden romances. You’re into professor-student romances.  You like it when the grumpy, stoic man gets with the cheerful and awkward woman. You like angst.  

Don’t pick this up if
You don’t like the imbalanced power dynamics between characters. You feel secondhand embarrassment strongly.
