Review: Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira



In a perfect world, sixteen-year-old Phoebe Martins’ life would be a book. Preferably a YA novel with magic and a hot paranormal love interest. Unfortunately, her life probably wouldn’t even qualify for a quiet contemporary. But when Phoebe finds out that Dev, the hottest guy in the clarinet section, might actually have a crush on her, she turns to her favorite books for advice. Phoebe overhauls her personality to become as awesome as her favorite heroines and win Dev’s heart. But if her plan fails, can she go back to her happy world of fictional boys after falling for the real thing?


I was super excited to read this book, it was high on my anticipated books for 2016 list and ohmygosh it was so freaking cute and adorable jfoidhawefjdsag.

“I plan on making you forget all those book boyfriends of yours.”
“Good luck trying.” 

Phoebe is so utterly bookish she puts us all to shame, really. She is constantly reading and daydreaming about fictional boys and comparing them to the boys in her school. And then her best friend Em tells her Dev, the guy in band with her, has a crush on her. And what does Phoebe do? She turns to her favorite book heroines for advice.

“Fiction is the best kind of reality.” 

This book is so adorable. I absolutely loved reading it. Phoebe is so relatable. Apart from the fact she’s a major booknerd, she’s also quite shy and a little awkward. And always turning to her best friends, and her books, for advice on how to flirt with Dev. And Dev.. is just such a goofy cutie. I love him.

“I’d level cities for one of your smiles.”
“That’s from the Sentinel series!” Any boy who would quote a romantic line from a bestselling YA novel had me, heart and soul. 

Definitely a must-read, if you love sweet and fluffy booknerdish books. Now if you excuse me, I’m off building a shrine for Dev and Phoebe.
