Comments Cool Sweet Hot Love

  • Aj the Ravenous Reader

    Such a fun, entertaining read. I love Josie’s preciseness in every language she chooses to speak. She’s the kind of girl who wants to make sure that she and the other party involved in every communication should share similar language. The moment she doesn’t understand another person’s language is her ultimate tragedy so when her sister Kate announces her engagement to Geoff spelled with a P, Josie resolves to make her older sister see that he isn’t right for her even if it has to take [...]

    I actually only picked up Love and Other Foreign Words on a whim during a bookstore sale. I had previously read a positive review of the novel (that definitely mentioned a lot of things I think I'd enjoy) and put it in the back of my mind. Luckily, this novel did not disappoint.First off, I'd like to commend Erin McCahan's different spin on what you'd call a generic story. We've all heard of stories with teens falling in love--but what if one teen didn't understand the definition of love?Josie [...]

  • Heather 'Bookables'

    I enjoyed this book. The whole novel follows Josie who is so insanely smart that it made me feel incredibility dumb. Josie can speak all these different languages such as high school, college, friends and so on but the one language she can't grasp is the language of love. This book follows Josie navigating through the world of 'love' and trying to understand it. It all begins when her older sister announces that she is engaged to a insufferable man named Geoff. Now when he was first introduced I [...]

    4.25 I really really enjoyed the main character and her voice! I personally found this book to be hilarious

  • Noor ♾

    Josie is me. I am Josie. Where has this book been all my life?? ❤❤❤

  • Yelania Nightwalker

    Cuando vi que este libro estaba recomendado por Rainbow Rowell, pensé “desastre inminente”. A mí no me había gustado Eleanor & Park, así que, cómo podría confiar en un libro recomendado por su autora. Sin embargo, abrí el libro y lean bien: ME OBLIGUÉ A EMPEZARLO.Por fortuna, desde las primeras líneas me sentí enganchada. La voz de Josie es de lo más fresca y peculiar. Ella es la hija menor, la que llegó de manera inesperada y es una chica genio, por lo mismo, tiene muchas ca [...]

  • Suraya (thesuraya)

    Leon suggested me this book few months ago, saying that this is my type of book. "You will love it," he said. I read the blurb and i replied, "Maybe. Maybe not. I dont know." I wasnt interested at the time. Today, 19th November 2015, I decided to give it a try and now all I can say is, "Leon knows me well."Josie is a weird girl. She sometimes comes of as a genius & funny but other times shes just plainly irritating but tolerable-and-can-still-be-loved kind of irritating. Sometimes shes rude [...]

  • Katie Scarlett

    This book irked me and annoyed me so much. There were moments that would draw me in but they didn't last.(view spoiler)[Was is supposed to be a surprise the Stu and Josie would end up liking each other?? Because the moment it was clarified they weren't related (really, before that too, only the page or two that it seemed like they were) I totally saw that coming. I skipped to the ending to make sure I was right.Josie comes off as this weird mix of young but super smart that isn't working for me. [...]

  • Amanda

    “I’ll try for Kate’s sake,” I say. “But if he uses the word adolescent again while I am one, I’m going to have to insist they break up. At least until I’m twenty-one.” Meet Josie. The young adult genre's equivalent of Don Tillman. Gifted with an IQ that grants her genius status. She's quite brilliant when it comes to hard facts. Not so great when it comes to love. When her older sister is getting married to a man Josie declares to be all wrong for her, she insist they break up. A [...]

  • Jen (The Starry-Eyed Revue)

    Oh, that was ridiculously cute! I completely empathize with JosieI often feel the rest of the world is speaking a language I'm not privy to. ;0)

  • Liviania

    Josie Sheridan is very analytical, a bit distant from her own life. She dissects people's words, the way the same phrase can mean two totally different things depending on tone, speaker, audience, and other context. She's pretty good at responding to people the way they expect, since she's so good at breaking down communication. But she's missing a deeper, natural feel for interaction.Josie's need to understand love comes to a head when her sister introduces her fiance to the family. Geoff is pr [...]

  • Joy (joyous reads)

    There are books where you want to critique it to within an inch of its life, then there books that you want to just appreciate it for how it made it you feel. Love and Other Foreign Words is one of those books that made me feel good; made me grin like a fool. Josie is such a quirky, insightful, unintentionally funny character. She reminds me of Don Tillman (The Rosie Project); highly inquisitive, intellectual being who manages to be funny without fully intending to be so. This book also achieved [...]

  • Cheryl

    I jumped on the band wagon as I wanted to see what this book was all about. I kept seeing it all over the internet. I picked up this book and started reading it. The first four chapters were a blur. Then suddenly I had put the book down and did not come back to it for a while. In fact, by the time that I did come back to the book it was about 4 more books afterwards. I decided to pick it up and try it again. I only got to chapter 6 and put the book down for good. I realized that I did not care f [...]

  • Avis Rara

    Скучнейшая история. Страниц 50 мусолила и мусолила, так и не втянулась. В итоге, заглянула в концовку. Думаю, диагноз очевиден. Книга на любителя.

    So hilarious. Love the voice.

    Josie can 'speak' quite a few different languages, for example boyfriends or high school. She knows how to react in all those different situations, what to do and what to say. But only her older sister Kate and her best friend Stu from next door really know how to speak 'Josie'. Then one day Kate presents her new, horrible fiancé and a boy tells Josie he loves her. Josie understands neither of those things - they're not in a language she speaks. How will Josie cope and how can she escape her co [...]

  • Lorena (Pink Hummingbird)

    Josie es una chica un tanto peculiar, su alto coeficiente intelectual la lleva a analizar todo en exceso y racionalizar sus propios sentimientos. Además es una persona sumamente quisquillosa, así que si las cosas no salen como ella quiere hará todo lo posible para que se chafé el plan. La novela comienza cuando el mundo de Josie es sacudido por el inesperado compromiso de su hermanísima del alma, Kate, y no es eso en realidad lo que preocupa a Josie, lo que le resulta sumamente molesto en r [...]

  • Nadia Uhlenhaker

    Cute story, but pretentious, whiny characters. My favorite character was either Stu or Sophie. And I totally called the bit about Stu in the end. The writing was fine, the plot was cute, but the characters really pulled the story down for me.

  • Wan Rathna

    great just great!!

  • Melanie Jacobson

    Ohhhhhhhhh, this is exactly what I needed this week. Charmed the pants right off me. Funny, smart, it has heart. Five stars based on my pure enjoyment.

  • Noelia Alonso

    Your average YA. A quick and predictable read. Forgettable. Josie and Kate were a bit unbearable sometimes.

    Finished reading: November 25th 2015“In someone else's language, you become a visitor, a guest - sometimes a very welcome guest received with shrieks and hugs - but still always a guest. Because as soon as you stop speaking the native language of the group, you stop being one of the group. And then you're just alone, no matter who you're with.”(view spoiler)[I'm not sure if it's because I misread the blurb, because I actually studied sociolinguistics back in Uni or because it's simply that b [...]

  • Deyse

    Review originally posted here.The only thing that made "Love and Other Foreign Words" not be a total "OH MY GOD, I LOVE IT SO MUCH" read for me was the pacing at the start and the time frame that this story includes, both were connected. I don't remember exactly how much time it passes during this book but I do remember that is more than a year, this unusual on contemporary novel and for me, even when talking about fantasy/dystopian books they usually only include a week or month of someones lif [...]

    Originally posted here at Random Musings of a Bibliophile.Erin McCahan's Love and Other Foreign Words is a novel I was excited to read. I had heard good things and I enjoyed most parts of her previous YA, I Now Pronounce You Someone Else, particularly the writing and character development. Love and Other Foreign Words had those aspects plus a storyline I as able to love more so I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Josie is a genius but this means she is often out of the loop when it comes to how ave [...]

    No estoy segura de que opino al final sobre este libro. Me gustó, sí. Pero hay algo que no me cerró del todo al terminarlo (?).Me encantó la protagonista. Me sacó muchas carcajadas y adoré su sarcasmo. Aaaaunque me sacó de quicio en algunos momentos. La hermana me caía bien al principio y luego me desesperó al final. Muy infantil y caprichosa por momentos.La trama me gustó y aunque me venía venir el cliché (e incluso admito que lo deseaba) al final no me terminó de gustar como suced [...]

    I love this bookThis was super funny, fast and entertaining. I laughed until this book showed how hard it can be to communicate with others, then I laughed some more after a good cry. Josie is a 15 year old genius that loves different languages, she recognizes the importance of words and family. When her older sister announces she's marrying a guy that Josie dislikes, she begins a simple yet phenomenal journey to try to define love. "When I’m not speaking Josie, I am merely acting. We all are [...]
