    1. I've really got to start paying closer attention to the descriptions of books before I enter giveaways. Here, I basically read the first line - Marjorie Plum never meant to peak in high school. - then clicked ENTER. Since I was once a lonely teenage nerd, (as opposed to the middle-aged nerd I am now), I've always been curious about people who were popular during those formative years. What happened after graduation? Did they continue to thrive and grow, or do they come to bemoan the fact that th [...]

    6. I have to start off by saying that what really caught my attention in the first place was this book's cover, and just like the array of colors present on it, Will You Won't You Want Me? is a novel full of funny, smart and angsty parts that are combined perfectly to form wonderful story about the pains of adulthood.Told in 3rd POV, Will You Won't You Want Me? tells the story of Marjorie Plum.

    8. Review posted on my blog, Audrey's Bookcase:A huge thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for providing me with an advanced copy for reviewing.I don't even know where to begin with this book. I loved it. So much. The story is about one Marjorie Plum: former Queen Bee, envied yet adored by all back in her high school heyday. Fast forward ten years, and she's working at a job she starts to despise more and more each passing day until the next thing she knows, everything goes to absolute s [...]

    9. thank you netgalley for the e-ARC!<3 I think my problem with this book was the fact I hardly connected with the MC at all. I think third person was way too limited and didn't add much to her personality. However, that is not the author's fault at all! She wrote Majorie very well and very developed, I just had trouble connecting with her. It's a shame when that happens especially if a character is written well. I also thought some of the "jokes" were meh/problematic. BUT I did like how she mad [...]

    10. Nora Zelevansky deftly explores the ups and downs of a young woman learning that the first step toward real love lies in coming to love one's true self.

    11. Marjorie Plum has come to the realization that her adult life sucks. She works for an abusive boss doing a job that's basically a glorified internship, and the only thing worse is getting fired from it. She still hangs around her old friends from high school-- a bunch of jerks who drink jerk juice, and that includes her love interest Mac, who is a less endearing Daniel Cleaver. And on top of it all, she's lost her apartment. But Marjorie is determined to make that leap into adulthood now that he [...]

    12. The themes Nora Zelevansky writes about in Will You Won't You Want Me? are important. Self-growth and maturity. Communication. Coming of (an older) age. Disillusionment. All things that happen in your late 20s when evaluating your life and which direction it's heading in. The main character, Marjorie, is basically having a midlife crisis at the age of 28. She isn't that popular high schooler that can just get by on her looks and status in life anymore. Her friends are moving forward in their liv [...]

    13. I received an advanced reader copy through Netgalley.Will You Won't You Want Me? is very entertaining from the beginning. I could relate to the main character, Marjorie, a twenty-something attempting to become better at adulting and sometimes failing. She used to be the Queen Bee of high school - the most beautiful girl and everything came easy to her. After that, she became stuck in a dead end marketing job for many years and working for an evil employer before she was fired for writing an emai [...]

    14. I was provided an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review.An enjoyable read!Marjorie Plum was the most popular girl in high school but where is she 10 years down the roadis girl is lost and struggling to figure out who she is and where she belongs. You go on the ride with Marjorie as she navigates through friendships, relationships, and career paths. This story was very well written and interesting from start to finish.

    15. This review was originally posted on 125pages I was intrigued by the synopsis of Will You Won't You Want Me?, then I saw post where they DNF it and then I grew worried. If they thought it was bad enough to stop reading it before the end, what was I getting into? Then I started reading it and my concern grew. Marjorie was pretty awful and so were her friends. Judgmental and still trying to live within their high school social circles, they made me dislike them. But then the story arc changed an [...]

    16. WILL YOU, WON’T YOU, WANT ME? Peaking Early Offers a Long Downhill Slidefangswandsandfairydust/201Audiobook provided by publisher for review. No remuneration was exchanged and all opinions presented herein are my own except as noted.I feel I like I have recently been sent several books about characters in Brooklyn and NYC who are somewhere between the first flush of youth and middle age. They all appear to be floundering. My question whether is said floundering a function of Manhattan, or the [...]

    18. I received the ARC from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange of honest reviews. All opinions are mine. Will You Won't You Want Me is about Marjorie, who at 28, suddenly found herself unemployed and also roommate-less when her roommate decided to move in her boyfriend. This, as you can imagine, got her feeling low as she felt that she had lost her place in the world. This book somehow surprised me in many ways possible. I was not sure if I would love it based on the writing style in the earlie [...]

    19. Every once in a while I come across a book that is just a delight, one that is both comforting and unexpected. Will You Won't You Want Me is one of those books.This is classified as a romance, and it is a romance. But it is also something else. It chronicles the struggles of adulting (and, as we all know, the struggle is real!) Marjorie is that person--one I think many can relate to--who believes she "peaked" in high school. Now, ten years later, she feels that her life has no direction. Zelevan [...]

    20. Review based on an ARC provided by Netgalley. Madge has always had it easy in life or at least she used to. Since becoming an adult, she feels stuck or rather going downhill with a job going nowhere and a roommate who is about to abandon her and their decade-long friendship with only a few days notice.Without money, a house or even friends to count on, she needs to give up life in Manhattan for a room in Brooklyn and learn a new lifestyle. But when she has a chance of going back, maybe that was [...]

    21. I was definitely interested in reading this book just because of the unusual title. I felt like I was picking the pedals of a flower while I was reading the title! I had never heard of author, Nora Zelevansky, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect with this book.The main character of Will You Won't You Want Me is Marjorie Plum. In school, Marjorie was one of those popular girls and had a promising future in hand. Once she's out of school and doesn't have that persona to lean on, she's forced to [...]

    22. The blurb for this book really doesn't do it justice. It makes it seem as though this is a story about a washed up queen bee. When this is actually a story of someone, who has outgrown her past, and is trying to figure out who she is, and who she wants to be. Marjorie finds herself, 10 years after high school ended, still crossing paths with her former schoolmates, still working in a PR job she acquired 9 years ago (and hates), still just coasting. All at once, her world is thrown into chaos. Sh [...]

    23. Will You Won’t You Want Me is the tale of Marjorie Plum and her realization that the adult world is not what she always thought it would be. We meet her when she is 28 and finally coming to terms with the idea the maybe being the “it girl” in high school doesn’t actually guarantee you a happy, sparkly, successful life. Marjorie is presented with a choice between the high school crush of her dreams or her new boss, which leads her to question the larger aspects of her life. Luckily, she m [...]

    24. This was so gloriously written. I am in love with Zelevansky's style and her voice, and I had a lot of fun reading this.I was expecting a simple romance, but I was excited to get a whole lot of exploration and self-discovery as well as wit and political and social commentary. I loved the environment that the author built with separate worlds within New York and within Marjorie's younger and older self.The characters were absolutely delectable to read about. From Belinda, an eleven-year-old with [...]

    25. As a note, an e-galley of this novel was sent to me via NetGalley by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my opinions in any way.Will You Won’t You Want Me is an ideal read for anyone going through changes in life and seemingly watching as life goes by you, wondering if you peaked in your teenage years. Our lead is a 28-year old woman by the name of Marjorie Plum who, once upon a time, was one of those girls in high school.Those girls meaning a shining star–th [...]

    26. *I received an ARC of this book as part of a giveaway.Overall, an enjoyable read. Marjorie is a self-absorbed 20-something to whom things have always come easily. This book is all about her journey to find herself. While Marjorie was hard to like at some times, I could definitely relate to her struggle to become the person she wanted to be while she was still in close contact with so many people from her past.One thing that I can't decide how I feel about is the way the author would randomly in [...]

    27. I'm so glad this was included in the spring reads collection, otherwise I might never have chosen to read it, and I would have truly missed out. There is a lot of humor in the story, but there is also a lot of truth beneath the surface. Things don't always go the way we plan in life, and we have to find a way to deal with whatever comes along.I think most women can relate to Marjorie as we've either been in her shoes or known someone like her--trying to figure out who she really is without the p [...]

    28. This book perfectly captures the pivot point that occurs for most people in their late 20s early 30s. When your formative teen years are fresh in memory, even as they recede in the rearview mirror. For some, they can't stop looking back, even when they know it's time to face the open road ahead.I usually gravitate towards dark crime novels when I read fiction, but I love this book. It felt real, the pages breezed by and I found myself more and more engaged in the characters and world that the au [...]

    29. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. To read more reviews like this one, check out Obsessive Book Nerd!Unfortunately, I just couldn't get into this book. I tried three different times to read it and still couldn't get into it. I was interesting in the book based on the cover and synopsis. But a chapter into the book, I was finding it difficult to focus. I didn't care for the way the book was written. I couldn't get a good feel for Marjorie and I couldn't figure out w [...]
