Hi friends! Today’s book thoughts are from Blind Dates by Gordon MacMillan.

*Disclaimer : I received a copy of this ebook for free from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Blind Dates takes us on a journey with Tom. He’s single, in his late 30’s, and being pushed to date by his friends. One day they stage an intervention, and mostly with the help of his friend Adam, Tom is sent on a series of blind date experiences.

I do have to say that I wanted to read this book based on the title alone. I happened to have gone on a blind date 18 years ago, and married the guy so blind dates are one of my favorite tropes.

Anyway – back to my review. I had mixed feelings about this one. There was an ending I didn’t see coming, especially the bit about an ex girlfriend turned friend that Tom relies on pretty heavily.

And there were some laugh out loud moments for sure. Going viral for your date isn’t the best thing to hope for, probably.

Tom definitely had a redemption arc, which was nice to see. As a fellow introvert, I think a lot of us kind of settled into our hermit ways during the pandemic. So to see him start to look forward to meeting new people was nice.

In the end, I liked the book just fine, but I couldn’t rate it more than 3 stars. It took a long time to slog through it and I contemplated DNF’ing a couple times.


Thanks for taking the time to read today. If you’ve read Blind Dates, be sure to leave a comment letting me know your thoughts.
