My Nails and My Book Review - Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira


Title: Bookishly Ever After
Series: Ever After #1
Author: Isabel Bandeira

Goodreads Summary: 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?

My Review: **I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review**

I am so torn on how I feel about this book. The concept was interesting, but almost every single page Phoebe asked herself what a fictional character would do, and it got so tedious to read those parts. Once she got to camp, the story improved a lot. The kids she had to supervise were hilarious, and there were a few parts that got me laughing.

My Manicure: I'm just going to sit here and drool over this mani, k? Seriously though, I am having a bit of a love/hate relationship with it. It turned out great, but the Celtic knot was supposed to be gold. My gold polish refused to pick up the entire image. So, after like 10 or 15 failed attempts, I got frustrated and grabbed my silver polish. Of course, perfect pick up first try. I used KBShimmer Up and Cunning for my base, and stamped with Pure Ice Silver Star and Bundle Monster BM-H05.
