Bookishly Ever After

Finished Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira.  I received a copy from the publisher for review.

Summary (from Goodreads):

In a perfect world, sixteen-year-old Phoebe Martins’ life would be a book. Preferably a YA novel with magic and a hot paranormal love interest. Unfortunately, her life probably wouldn’t even qualify for a quiet contemporary. But when Phoebe finds out that Dev, the hottest guy in the clarinet section, might actually have a crush on her, she turns to her favorite books for advice. Phoebe overhauls her personality to become as awesome as her favorite heroines and win Dev’s heart. But if her plan fails, can she go back to her happy world of fictional boys after falling for the real thing?

This is a book for people who love books.  It’s probably especially a book for people who love YA and are book bloggers because you guys, the struggle is real.  There are a lot of sentences I could use as support for this thesis, but this one works the best.

“…there was Lexie again…staring at Dev like he was an [ARC] of the last book in a series.”

We can all totally picture that, right?

Meanwhile, I overidentified with Feebs and also fought the urge to cheer (literally, out loud) multiple times during the book.

Basically, this book is just a complete delight.  It works as a rom-com or as a love letter to books and the people who adore them. I loved every second I spent reading it and cannot wait for the sequel.

Highly recommended.

  1. I’m still only half way through this book and, to be honest, I don’t have the desire to pick it back up. But I really should finish reading it since I promised myself no DNFs this year! LOL! Glad you liked it more than I am.
