I read The True Love Experiment by Christina Lauren over the summer and loved it. I had to revisit the book because the fmc, Fizzy Chen, is one of my favorite characters. She is so amazing and I relate to her in so many ways – Chinese American, 30s, romance book lover (she’s a writer and I would love to publish something one day), romance lover, etc. She’s also hilarious! So I, of course, had to do an appreciation post for her.
“Romance isn’t gratuitous bodice ripping. It can be, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but in the end, romance isn’t about the fantasy of being wealthy or beautiful or even being tied to the bed. It’s about elevating stories of joy above stories of pain. It is about seeing yourself as the main character in a very interesting—or maybe even quiet—life that is entirely yours to control.”
Fizzy Chen forever!
