Hildy and Paul each have their own reasons for joining the university psychology study that asks the simple question: Can love be engineered?
The study consists of 36 questions, ranging from "What is your most terrible memory?" to "When did you last sing to yourself?" By the time Hildy and Paul have made it to the end of the questionnaire, they've laughed and cried and lied and thrown things and run away and come back and driven each other almost crazy. They've also each discovered the painful secret the other was trying so hard to hide. But have they fallen in love?Told in the language of modern romance—texting, Q&A, IM—and punctuated by Paul's sketches, this clever high-concept YA is full of humor and heart. As soon as you've finished reading, you'll be searching for your own stranger to ask the 36 questions. Maybe you'll even fall in love. 

MORAL OF THE STORY:
FIRST IMPRESSIONS AREN'T ALWAYS THE LAST IMPRESSION

10 REASONS WHY I LOVED THIS BOOK

1. Unique concept
Taking 2 people, putting them in a room together and seeing what happens? Um, yes please! 
2. Interesting writing style
I loved that the book was written in 'Chat' format. A lot of the book's dialogue is Hildy and Paul literally sitting in a room basically interviewing each other. However, it gets quite intense!
3. Quick read
4. Has Depth
3 and 4 go hand and hand. Although you can enjoy this book in one sitting, it has so much depth. The characters and storyline provide so much heart and soul.
5. Epic characters
Delivering a book in this style can be risky, it can lack "The feels" but that was NOT the case of 36 Reasons. Both Hildy and Paul were very intense characters. In the beginning, we are only seeing the surface, but the author did a spectacular job at letting their stories unfold at a beautiful pace as the experiment progresses and the individual character perspectives are delivered.
6. Not your average contemporary romance
Because average is boring!
7. Thought-provoking
Some of the questions are pretty basic, while others dive right into the soul!
8. Comedic relief
36 Reasons made me Laugh out Loud on more than one occasion...way more! The quips and banter between all of the characters were fantastic. It definitely had a "sitcom" vibe to it. I could totally see this as a Netflix series and me totally binging it!
9.  Charming
10. Discovery
It may be a light contemporary romance, but it has so much more! It's about not just about 2 people getting to know each others. It's about 2 characters getting to know themselves.
