Thank you to Netgalley, Isabel Bandeira and Spencer Hill Press for allowing me to read and review this book. This is my honest and unbiased opinion. I really enjoyed reading Bookishly Ever After as it reminded me a bit of my own childhood teen angst.
Phoebe is the epitome of a devoted bookworm. She make notes of dialogue and quotes from her books to use in real life as she is very shy and not good at communicating, especially with boys.
Her book obsession and constant book referencing is just so relatable but she takes it to another level when she actually dresses up to go to author events. It made me sad, though, that she felt the need to go to her books for answers to real life problems and relationships.
Her hobbies include band practice, archery and knitting. Phoebe spends a lot of her time (when she’s not reading) knitting herself costumes related to her favourite character in her books.
Without going into detail, there is a boy interest or two. Phoebe is trying to decide which one she likes more. Her best friend intervenes and tries to push her towards one in particular. Just it happens like in real life if you had friends like these!
Phoebe is a very likeable character and I think that she is easy to relate to.
Bookishly Ever After is an easy and enjoyable read for teens/YA but I bet that there are adults out there that will enjoy it too. I was entertained and really liked the story.
This book deserves
