    Super cute. I loved it. ...

    This might be the cutest book I've ever read. The entire thing was just so hopeful and HAPPY (even when the topic might not have been). The Italian scenery was gorgeous, the food was amazing, and all of the characters were so precious. I wish I could go back and read it all over again....

    BTAT 2017 book #2 Possibly even a 4.5/5 stars THIS. WAS. SO. CUTE. The plot? Adorable and intriguing. The characters? Pretty great. The setting? INCREDIBLE. So much good stuff in this BOOK! I loved the twists and the turns of the plot as well as the added element of Lina's mom'...

    DNF @ 10% I will be displaying my emotions through Ron Swanson gifs. Love and Gelato was a book I desperately wanted to love. I mean, the set up was perfect. Italy, love and gelato (which I've never actually had but it sounds good). Italy is a destination I have always wanted to ...

    Awww! This was a really cute summer read. I loved the whole Italian experience accompanied with lots of Italian history, gelato, and young love. Perfect! This story had it's ups and downs, I enjoyed the mystery part and I loved the character growth, I still feel giddy. 4 sta...

    5-I-NEED-AN-ITALIAN-DUDE-RIGHT-NOW-STARS!!! This book was successful in getting rid of my sucky reading slump. After a month of force reading various books, this book performed its magic and voila! Reading slump gone. I never thought that a super cute young-adult contemporary romanc...

    4.5 Stars Love and Gelato is the perfect book to enjoy this summer. Set in Italy, this book is absolutely breathtaking. The fact that there are old journal entries in the story makes it so much more incredible. Trust me, after reading this book, you?ll be craving some gelato! L...

    This was a cute story about a girl finding a way to move on with life after losing her mother. Lina made a promise to her dying mother, finding herself in Italy with a father she had never met. Lina?s experience tugged at all the right strings for me. What brought my overall enjoy...

    *4.5 stars* After finishing this book, (well also during reading it) I had major cravings for some gelato. It was super cute and mysterious. I couldn't put it down! Because of this book, I want to go to Italy even more now. ...

    Love & Gelato was a cute, quick, summer read and just what I needed for the plane journey, on which I read it from start to finish but unfortunately, despite this, I didn't fall in love with it. I didn't really warm to the characters or feel any strong connection towards them(o...

    Fans of the young-adult genre will definitely enjoy Jenna Evans Welch's debut novel: Love & Gelato. It incorporates grief, family issues, age-appropriate romance, and the Italian culture. Overall, I liked it. The cultural components were my favorite parts. I also could very much ap...

    4.5 Stars Love and Gelato is the perfect book to enjoy this summer. Set in Italy, this book is absolutely breathtaking. The fact that there are old journal entries in the story makes it so much more incredible. Trust me, after reading this book, you?ll be craving some gelato! L...

    This was pretty damn cute, you guys. All I want to do now is go to Italy and fall in love with some Nutella pastries. Insert gif of Emma Stone saying YUM here. ...

    Love & Gelato was a cute, quick, summer read and just what I needed for the plane journey, on which I read it from start to finish but unfortunately, despite this, I didn't fall in love with it. I didn't really warm to the characters or feel any strong connection towards them(o...

    [3.5] Now I'm craving some authentic, Italian gelato and cute, Italian guy with it. ...

    Love & Gelato was the first contemporary novel I've read this year, and I absolutely enjoyed it. Although this book was marketed as a love story, I found the romance between Lina and Ren to be nearly insignificant next to the novel's overall premise: A girl desperately trying to co...
