(20) The Rosie Project // Bookish Blurb

the-rosie-projectThe Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

This is an Australian book about Don, a socially awkward genetics professor who has decided to create a questionnaire in order to find an acceptable partner, and Rosie, a woman who does not fulfill many of the requirements to be an acceptable partner nor is she looking to be, and how they fall in love.

My favorite part of this book was trying to understand the way Don works. He narrates the story and is just such an interesting character. I believe that he has Asperger syndrome. He is incredibly smart but has a very hard time empathizing with people and understanding social behavior. Continue reading “(20) The Rosie Project // Bookish Blurb”

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Ok, so this was another YA romance book. Somehow I ended up with a bunch of them all at once. In this book Andie thinks she has her life figured out and then a couple of things happen and she realizes that life could be different and so much better. Again, I was not in love but I will say that although it had many similarities to My Life Next Door, I think I liked this one better.

(17) My Life Next Door // Bookish Blurb

12294652My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

I don’t remember how I came across this book and thought I would get it. I kinda wish I hadn’t. Pretty much, this is a YA love story about rich Samantha who has a busy controlling mother and Jase the next door neighbor who is from a big crazy (poor) family and how they fall in love one summer. Continue reading “(17) My Life Next Door // Bookish Blurb”

(16) The Sun is Also a Star // Bookish Blurb

coverThe Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

This is a YA modern love story and it is so cute. It primarily covers one day, has super short chapters, and is a very easy read. Primarily we switch back and forth between Natasha and Daniel’s perspectives but we also jump around briefly into other peoples’ perspectives which I really appreciated (kind of like 2am at the Cat’s Pajamas) in that we come to some understanding as to why the other characters act the way they do. The receptionist and that random driver are no longer just ambiguous people and we see a little into their lives which really ties into the whole idea of this book that in order to understand a little thing ¬†you have to understand the whole universe.

(6)One Plus One // Bookish Blurb

one-plus-one-jojo-moyesOne Plus One by Jojo Moyes

After I saw Me Before You, I was going to go read the book (I didn’t realize it was a book before it was a movie and yes it made me cry) but when I went to get the book I realized that the author (Jojo Moyes) had written a bunch of other books. Unsure what to do I decided to just get her first book even though I didn’t know anything about it. Continue reading “(6)One Plus One // Bookish Blurb”
