ARC Review: Instructions for Dancing by Nicola Yoon

Instructions for Dancing

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I LOVED this book. Nicola Yoon hasn’t let me down yet, and this may be my favorite of her novels. Also, that cover is freaking gorgeous.

Evie loses all faith in love after her parents marriage ends and she goes as far as getting rid of all her formerly favorite romance novels. Fate intervenes, however, and she has to learn to find love again and to let herself love, even when she knows it may one day hurt.

The ballroom dancing she follows her fate to is wonderful (I say as someone who adores ballroom dancing movies) and teaches her a lot – as well as introducing her to X.

I cried buckets during the last 25% or so, which to me makes for an excellent romance.

It’s such a cute love story and has some really profound moments and takeaways and the dance instructor, FiFi, is hilarious with her bizarre insults. This would make an amazing movie. Someone get on that.
