I feel like this was j...

I feel like this was just as good as the others in the series. I laughed, I laughed some more, etc. It's worth the read if you like this sort of thing. I would definitely recommend it. 5 out of 5 stars. Brilliant.

This book was a comedi...

This book was a comedic little retelling of Romeo and Juliet using text messages rampant with emojis. I got a good laugh out of it and I will certainly buy the other books in this series. I'm not a die-hard Shakespeare fan, so I didn't mind his work being poked fun at or translated into a bunch of smilies (though I know some people in Twitter are all up in arms about the existence of this book). If you're open to parodies, check it out. There's even a handy little translation guide in the back to tell you what things mean. For example, I learned that FOMO means fear of missing out! Does that make me old for not knowing that? ;P
