    4 fun, I love the 80s stars to Forks, Knives, and Spoons As a child of the 80s, I was instantly smitten with the time period of this novel and all the pop culture references peppered throughout I had forgotten about many of those things and had so many aww moments that I waxed nostalgic over and over The group of women in this novel were in college, so there was also some college nostalgia, too It s all very fun, but it s not fluff There is plenty of substance to the story, and what the characters work through This is a smoothly written story about friendship that was a delight to read I plan to re read it at some point when I m ready to visit the 80s again Thank you to Leah DeCesare for the complimentary copy in exchange for a review.

    Amy York is leaving her Connecticut home to begin her freshman year at college Her father provides her with light advice on choosing a life partner before she leaves One of his hopes is that she selects a boyfriend that will not distract her from the dream she has of becoming a journalist His advice classifies men into three types of utensils forks, knives, and spoons Amy takes this advice to heart, providing her with a guide to assess the male population at college and beyond.Amy and Veronica meet at Syracuse University and quickly become best friends Amy passes along her father s wisdom to her friends and they all put it to use It justifies tough breakups, why a relationship went sour, or just to size up someone at a party The book takes us through the two friends college journeys as they delve through relationships, skepticisms, spring breaks and formals Amy leaves school with a boyfriend she hopes to marry while Veronica is still looking for that perfect utensil.The two move to New York City and share an apartment Amy continues her relationship with her boyfriend, Andrew She begins to slowly learn that the ideal utensil from college may not be the best fit for her current needs Veronica becomes serious about her boyfriend Joey who never finished college Whenever she visits her parents in Rhode Island, her mother tries to set her up with young men from her social circle Veronica struggles with introducing Joey to her parents fearing they will not approve of him based upon her upbringing The book follows their relationships while they mature into adulthood through new apartments, weddings of friends, and jobs.The characters in this book are very likeable and their friendship is written realistically The book has an easy flow and I was taken back in time to the period of being in college and embarking on a career I enjoyed the references to the 80 s 90 s Benetton sweaters, Denise Austin videos and Mulholland Drive Cafe owned by Patrick Swayze I will look at my utensils very differently now This is a debut novel by the author.I am giving away 2 copies on my blog until 1 10

    This is a great read If you are looking for a relationship than you really could use the concept of finding the perfect steak knife Don t settle for anything less Otherwise, you are just left with a bunch of posers Amy and Veronica were good together I enjoyed seeing them experience all of their relationship turmoil in their quests to find the perfect steak knife They did come across forks, spoons, sporks, and even chopsticks along the way Although, I did feel like Amy was trying too hard to find her steak knife Some knives when you give them a good polish could turn out to be a dud Yes, forks and spoons can turn into steak knives as well The way that Amy and Veronica and their friends got on the cutlery band wagon and went along with the references was charming and sometimes funny A worthy read Forks They are the smoothies The forks are the guys who are cocky, they ll poke you These are the guys to be especially careful of They are the guys that won t care about you They will make you think they care, but they won t have any problem playing the field.Knives The knives are the middle of the road, they re not cocky like the forks They may be a little less confident, but mot necessarily lacking in confidence The nice guys will be in the knife category Spoons Simply put, these are the nerds, the geeks They don t poke, they don t have edge, they re maybe even bland Spoons may be wimpy and dull, boring and nervous.

    Even though I am not a big fan of romance novels, I absolutely loved this book I adored the way that the characters used the Utensil Classification System to rate the quality of the boys that would come in and out of their lives This book is an amazing collage of wit, funny college life, romance, and finding Mr Right I loved the way that it followed the relationships of the protagonists and showed what to look for and what to keep away from in a guy.I won this book through a Goodreads giveaway.

    As a child of the 80s and who went to college in the early 90s, I loved how this novel took me completely back in time Leah Decesare navigates the complexities of college relationships and the coming of age of two roommates as they move from underneath the wings of their parents and into the world of adult life It s funny, witty and full of nostalgia A perfect summer read to warm your heart.

  8. Samantha Samantha says:

    This book just wrapped me up into a big ball of 90s nostalgia and rolled me in first love memories I didn t want to put it down It tugged at all my heart strings and made me fondly remember why I m so glad to be an adult hahaha Raised alone by her father, after her mother died when she was an infant, he told Amy that all men were like forks, knives, or spoons Amy takes this to heart and creates a class system that all men can somehow fall into To her and her friends, ideal man is a shiny steak knife This story follows Amy and her closest friends as they navigate college, friendship, and love.There were no real surprises in this book, you saw the writing on the wall.AND THAT WAS TOTALLY OK The author, Leah DeCesare wove a tale, that not only drew me in from the get go, but was so utterly relateable A book that is worthy of picking up, it will fill your heart right up.

    All of my reviews can be found on www.novelgossip.comThis was such a fun, feel good, lighthearted read I love books set in the eighties, there s something about the nostalgia I experience when I m reading something set in that time period, and DeCesare brought the eighties back to life She went into detail about the fashions, music, movies and stone aged technology and it was such a funny blast from the past It begins in 1988 when Amy is getting ready to start her freshman year of college She quickly bonds with her new roommate, Veronica and immediately tells her about the advice her dad left her with The USC says that every guy can be classified as a piece of silverware The perfect catch is a steak knife, while a shrimp fork or slotted spoon is a dud It sounds silly, and it totally is, but it was also extremely fun As a hopeless romantic, Amy takes the USC seriously, while the realistic Veronica is skeptical The book goes on to follow the girls as they graduate and move to NYC and mainly focuses on their dating adventures I loved both Amy and Veronica, they were completely different in many ways, but they re both loyal friends and hard workers Their friendship was awesome and I always like to see some girl power in a book They support each other through breakups, makeups, cheating, school pressure, and the stress of being out on their own as adults for the first time Amy s dad was also a really great guy, her mom died when she was a newborn so it s always been just the two of them and their bond was adorable This is like a innocent Sex and the City, mostly because DeCesare captured the innocence of the late eighties and early nineties so well Even though it follows the girls as they navigate the dating world it s light on the romance and heavy on their friendship, which I appreciated Don t get me wrong, there is still plenty of dating going on, but the focus was on friendship and family I was happy with how things ended but I m also hopeful the author is considering a sequel I want to know what happens to Amy and Veronica next.
