Blog Tour: Field Notes on Love by Jennifer E.Smith


Having just been dumped by his girlfriend, British-born Hugo is still determined to take his last-hurrah-before-college train trip across the United States. One snag: the companion ticket is already booked under the name of his ex, Margaret Campbell. Nontransferable, no exceptions.

Enter the new Margaret C. (Mae for short), an aspiring filmmaker with big dreams. After finding Hugo's spare ticket offer online, she's convinced it's the perfect opportunity to expand her horizons.

When the two meet, the attraction is undeniable, and both find more than they bargained for. As Mae pushes Hugo to explore his dreams for his future, he'll encourage her to channel a new, vulnerable side of her art. But when life off the train threatens the bubble they've created for themselves, will they manage to keep their love on track.


Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. No payments made between me and the publisher.

I’ve been eyeing this book for a long time now since I saw it on NetGalley. I tried requesting in advanced but I was like on a waiting list, so when I saw this blog tour, I immediately signed up. I was so eager to join because I really wanted to read the book. I know it would be another good story from Jennifer E. Smith, and she didn’t fail that expectation. I enjoyed reading the book a lot. It was so hard to stop and do other things, I even read this during my lunch break at work or on trip to work. I got hooked, the author got me hooked. I liked the concept of it, train, travel, new people, finding yourself. It’s perfect. Traveling to me is another form of finding yourself and being with complete stranger is another thing. Maybe if I could get a chance like that I would never say no as well. It would be a great experience I’m sure.

I liked how the individual life of the characters where form in here, both Hugo and Mae wants an escape on their not so perfect life, both wants to find out some missing pieces of their lives and both wants to move on. These two characters made the book so exciting to read, the supporting characters made it fun especially Mae’s Nana and best friend. Aside from that, Hugo’s siblings.

I don’t think there were a dull moments on this book. As I go one all I wanted to know is what will happen at the end of their trip? I am also curious to Mae’s little project about their travels. The book was so chill, all you wanted was to continue reading, laugh with the characters and imagine all those scenery they passed by during their trips. It honestly made me wonder to try or not this kind of trip. I already decided to try and take the traveling around a place by driving a car, and being on a train is a different adventure. Maybe someday I would.

This book is worth reading. I can’t wait to have a physical copy and just enjoy the book once again. Before I finally end this review, I’d like to take the opportunity to encourage the readers to travel and enjoy life. Be open-minded on new opportunities in life and of course don’t forget to accept defeat. We don’t always win, but we learn from all the failures.

Lastly, thank you so much for the blog tour host for letting me become part of this tour. It was really awesome and thank you for giving me a chance to read the book. Field Notes on Love is really worth it.
