Waiting For Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey

A rom com about a romcom loving character? Yes, PLEASE!

Reading this book made me want to run over to Netflix and binge some rom-coms. This book follows Annie who is absolutely obsessed with rom-coms and he hunt for love. Or, her hunt for her very own Tom Hanks. This book literally read like those 90's rom-coms that we love and it was everything I wanted it to be. I laughed and swooned and it was perfectly predictable and the perfect novel to pull me out of a dark read slump. A perfect summer read that you can lose a day laughing and smiling while reading.



Can a romcom-obssessed romantic finally experience the meet-cute she always dreamed of or will reality never compare to fiction, in this charming debut adult novel from Kerry Winfrey. Annie is twenty-seven years old, single, and obsessed with romantic comedies (she and her mother watched them religiously, before her mom died). Her dating life is limited by the expectations she’s formed from these movies. She is not as open to new experiences as she might be, because she’s waiting for her Tom Hanks–i.e., a guy she’ll find in the perfect, meet-cute romantic comedy way. When Annie does finally meet her perfect match, it’s not quite in the way she expected, and she’s forced to reckon with the walls she’s built around herself over the years.
