Cover Crush: Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi

Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi just calls to me! I love the drawn aesthetic and it really pulls me into it to look deeper. I think this cover really conveys a lot about the book as well, well as much as I know from the synopsis. Plus the drawing is freaking beautiful. I am swooning over these two fictional characters and I don’t even know them yet! Emergency Contact takes a in-depth look into the lives of people who text each other, and the shared intimacy that can grow just from sharing via texting. I feel like this contemporary romance is exactly a reflection on the current ways of our world. Personally for me, I love texting and my online friendships I have built, I can only imagine if I was younger and dating how that would be so different than back in my day! Emergency Contact is releasing on March 27th, so be sure to check this one out and add it to your TBR!

For Penny Lee high school was a total nonevent. Her friends were okay, her grades were fine, and while she somehow managed to land a boyfriend, he doesn’t actually know anything about her. When Penny heads to college in Austin, Texas, to learn how to become a writer, it’s seventy-nine miles and a zillion light years away from everything she can’t wait to leave behind.

Sam’s stuck. Literally, figuratively, emotionally, financially. He works at a café and sleeps there too, on a mattress on the floor of an empty storage room upstairs. He knows that this is the god-awful chapter of his life that will serve as inspiration for when he’s a famous movie director but right this second the seventeen bucks in his checking account and his dying laptop are really testing him.

When Sam and Penny cross paths it’s less meet-cute and more a collision of unbearable awkwardness. Still, they swap numbers and stay in touch—via text—and soon become digitally inseparable, sharing their deepest anxieties and secret dreams without the humiliating weirdness of having to see each other.
