Bookgasms Book Blog's review of Under the Influence (Chosen Paths, #2)

"You guys - I just lost about 24 hours of my life. Like, the world just passed me by and there I was, my nose permanently stuck in this book because I couldn't put it down. I was sucked in immediately and spent the entire day compulsively flipping pages while my need to know what happened next just kept growing until finally I could breathe easily again as I turned the last page." -- Reviewer Shelly on Under the Influence (Chosen Paths, #2)

Melanie (Paperback Darling)'s review of Bookishly Ever After (Ever After, #1)

"I loved this book. I feel like Phoebe was totally me back when I was in high school, nose in a book and crushing over these fictional guys all while learning the ropes when it comes to the dating scene ... Following Phoebe in her endeavors of finding love and staying true to her bookish nature, this book had me laughing and constantly turning pages. It was such a cute read and the writing style was so neat. I loved how after a couple of chapters, there will be excerpts from the books she’s reading in order to find the best flirting tips. It was like reading stories within a story and I would love it if the author made these stories into actual books one day! I would definitely read them." -- Reviewer Melanie on Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2079067849

5/5: “Before all of this, my life was perfect. I had my book boyfriends and it was enough for me to read and dream about these guys because they weren’t real. I’m so scared I can’t go back to that. I’m afraid that maybe reality ruined me for fiction. And that means I really did lose everything.” – B...

Book Review: Dramatically Ever After by Isabel Bandeira

"[Dramatically Ever After] brought me back to a cast of characters I fell in love with and, this time, put the spotlight on theatre and the world of competitive speeches ... This book was really cute, had great character growth, and I had a lot of fun going back into the Ever After universe. I can’t wait to see who will be staring in the third book." -- Reviewer Trista on Dramatically Ever After by Isabel Bandeira

Annette Jordan (Dublin, 07, Ireland)’s review of Bookishly Ever After

"Sweet, funny and very believable, this was a really fun light hearted read... The book feels very current, with Phoebe's interest in archery and cosplay but the story itself is timeless." - Reviewer Annette on Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2039828299

This is a sweet YA romance with a great central character in Phoebe, obsessed with books and knitting, and liable to get lost in either to the extent that she will let real life pass her by. After all with all her "book boyfriends" why on earth would she need a real life one? Turns out that her love...

"The second book in the Ever After Series was a great follow up to Bookishly Ever After. I loved reading about Phoebe and Dev still, although the focus of this book is on Em and Kris. Em loves theatre and acting and is fighting for a scholarship to university, while being chosen as a finalist and spending a week in Boston she finds out her rival from school Kris is going to be there too. I love books that take place out of of the characters comfort zone! The banter between Em and Kris was great and really fun to read. Enjoyable book for YA, would definitely recommend! I'm hopeful there is a 3rd in the series!" -- Educator Shan on Dramatically Ever After by Isabel Bandeira

"This is one of those great amazing books that might become a classic in the future. Amy Harmon, is just an amazing writer. This book will make you cry, smile and just have your heart tumbling all over the place. You can’t give more than five stars to this book, but in should have it’s own category. It will become a must read for everyone. Few books had me naked emotionally and gave me a boost at the same time. I would quote the entire book, because it got me, it dived into my heart and I am not sure I will ever forget about it." -- Reviewer FS Meurinne on Making Faces by Amy Harmon

"I am so happy to have been able to relate to Phoebe and her love for books. I got so excited when she talked about her tbr pile and her love of bookstores.

"Lessons in Falling by Diana Gallagher is a perfect story for teens experiencing the stress of sports, friends, school and future expectations ... Not only will YA readers relate to Savannah's over-protective parents and keen pressure of succeeding in sports beyond high school, Gallagher also includes the issues too-often ignored; depression, bullying, racism, and peer pressure. [An] excellent purchase for all YA collections." - Librarian Meg on Lessons in Falling by Diana Gallagher
