Bookish Boyfriends: The Boy Next Story- Tiffany Schmidt

41104127This is the second title in a paperback original series about a girl whose classic literary crushes manifest in real life, this time told from Rory Campbell’s point of view and inspired by the timeless classic Little Women. Rory likes Toby, but Toby likes Rory’s sister Merrilee, even though Merrilee is already dating Toby’s friend Fielding—and it’s all about to get even more complicated at Reginald R. Hero High . . . where our leading ladies’ romantic fantasies come true, often with surprising consequences. Perfect for younger readers of YA or older readers of middle grade, this squeaky-clean series is sure to charm any reader who’s ever had a book boyfriend of her own.

To repair it, Rielle must collect the seven hidden castings of the saints. Meanwhile, to help her prince and love Audric protect Celdaria, Rielle must spy on the angel Corien — but his promises of freedom and power may prove too tempting to resist. Centuries later, Eliana Ferracora grapples with her new reality: She is the Sun Queen, humanity’s long-awaited savior. But fear of corruption — fear of becoming another Rielle — keeps Eliana’s power dangerous and unpredictable. Hunted by all, racing against time to save her dying friend Navi, Eliana must decide how to wear a crown she never wanted — by embracing her mother’s power, or rejecting it forever.

That’s what he/she said Thursday 😉

We are going to try a new meme for Thursday.

You know that Book Boy/girlfriend that you absolutely adore? Well now is your chance to gush about him/her more. We will be posting a quote from that book that will make everyone fall in love too.

Today’s book is Bookish Boyfriends by Tiffany Schmidt.

There was one character in the book that was an absolute shit but I couldn’t help but love. Monroe was the almost perfect boyfriend with a side of crazy. He swept you off your feet but also made you cringe.

“I hope you’re missing me as much as I’m missing you. These roses are almost as pretty as your face. I can’t stop thinking about kissing you. Really can’t wait to do it again.”

*Arc Review* Bookish Boyfriends- Tiffany Schmidt

“Too bad book boyfriends gave paper cuts when you tried to snuggle.”

We have all been in this position where we fall in love and swoon over the dreamy man/woman in a book. You just imagine their arms wrapped around you on the toughest of days and they will make it all better. Sigh!

This book is for all of us who ever had a crush on a book character and wasn’t ashamed of it. I’m totally not ashamed to admit that I have may a few bookish men in my life that I wish was real. *cough* Prince Cardan *cough* *cough*

I don’t think I have ever had this much fun while reading a book. It took all the things we love about books and put it into another book. I’m still swooning!

At first, I thought that the title was very misleading. I was reading and then I had to read some more just to make sure that my eyes weren’t deceiving me. But we eventually get there and it’s a huge sigh of relief. I’m not and never will be a fan of Shakespeare. There is nothing about his books that interest me. They are dull but Monroe has a way of changing your mind…. well just for this part of the story.

The characters, the plot, the setting, everything about this had my heart screaming for more. It was adorkable. The twist, the turns, the ups, and the downs had me fascinated. The romance was a tad bit rocky but it never overpowered the story as a whole.

I must admit Monroe was someone I should have despised, but he wound up being the rule breaker with those dangerous eyes that make us all swoon. He needs his own book!

Book lovers will rejoice at the story that unfolds through these pages. Just try not to fall in too deep!

Thank you, Amulet Books!
