Bookishly Ever After
Bookishly Ever After was going to be a hit or miss with me. On one hand, it looked extremely cute and enchanting; but on the other hand, it looked cheesy. Could I love a character who hid behind her books? I always get skeptical when reading about a bookish character. Mainly for the stereotypes of how we act. I say we, cause obviously I’m a bookish person. Books are everything to me. I can’t go a day without reading. So while I was reading, I kept thinking to myself, “dang, am I that annoying?” when it comes to anything books.
I jokingly say boys are better in books, but like I said… I’m joking. Phoebe really seemed to think they were better. I mean seriously…that’s just freaking weird. Fiction is better than reality to her. Okay, I can kind of agree with her there. Reality can suck sometimes. It’s okay to think that if… And only if you could decipher the two.
Phoebe would think and do things because of her favorite character would do them. It was like a “What Would Mauve Do?”. Um, okay? I understand fangirling over things, hell I do it. But I guess phoebe just bugged me so much because she couldn’t just be herself or see what was right in front of her. Then again, her best friend is trying to get her to get a boyfriend, and even though Phoebe doesn’t need one, it would be nice for her to come back down to earth. I think other teens will enjoy this for the simple fact that in a way, you can relate to Phoebe and her love for all things books. I could also relate in some ways to her but I just don’t like that the author made it seem like characters who read books, have no life.
