Review: The Geography of You and Me




The Geography of You and Me
by Jennifer E. Smith




A cute contemporary romance focusing on love, family, loss and the idea of home. When a blackout hits New York City, Lucy and Owen find themselves trapped together in an elevator. The friendship and romance that progresses from this chance meeting spans countries through the medium of postcards.

I love the film You've Got Mail, in fact, it's one of my all time favourites! So when I saw that this romance was through postcards, I leaped at the chance to review an e-arc from Netgalley. Smith's writing flows off the page but I found myself dipping in and out for some escapism. For me, it's good but not profoundly different to the other books of the same genre.

If you're a fan of Stephanie Perkins or, of course, Jennifer E Smith's previous work you should pick this up tomorrow.

Happy reading!

Waiting on Wednesday


Hosted by Breaking The Spine


I'm currently reading The Book Thief and really want to read more books of the wartime era. So this book is most definitely one of my most anticipated reads of the year:

March Wrap Up


I'm pretty late posting this, so let's just get straight to it! This month I finished...


City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments #3)
 by Cassandra Clare 


 I enjoyed this but guessed early on the big plot twist.




 If I Stay
by Gail Forman


 I picked up this beautiful hardcover edition for a bargain £1 from a local charity shop. And I really liked it. Short and sweet. 




 The Help 
by Kathryn Stockett 


A re-read for book club. Enjoyed this just as much as the first time.



 Divergent
 by Veronica Roth 


Why I waited to long to read this I do not know! Really enjoyed it, although Tris did annoy me at times.



The Geography of You and Me 
by Jennifer E. Smith 


A really cute contemporary romance that I received from netgalley. Will release a full review near the release date, 15 April.



 And the books I started but didn't finish... 

 Prep 
by Curtis Sittenfeld 


I was excited for this book and I was thoroughly disappointed. I found Lee to be pretty depressing and I just couldn't connect with her. However, Sittenfeld's writing is great as per usual.



 On Beauty 
by Zadie Smith 


 I just was not in the mood for this. May loan it from the library at a later stage. For that reason I won't be giving this a rating just yet, I don't feel that would be fair.


March was a busy month for me, again, so I didn't read as much as I wanted to. Although I didn't do too badly! Later this week I'll tell you what I'm reading this month. Until then, what was your favourite read in the last month?
