Feb 05, Mapet rated it it was amazing I'm a big fan of the blog and the works of Jessica Walsh and Tim Goodman so it wasn't much of stretch that I would love this book. It did not do justice to the designs as it should have. As a story, it has all the moments one wants: It cuts into a lot of the deign work when turning to the next page, which is frustrating when I am a sucker for a good RomCom.

Unfortunately, the design and structure of the book layout was not up to par, requiring several page flips back and forth to get the chronology right. This book feels much like a supplement to the website.
