The (mis) adventures of Waverly Bryson..
Thanks to Tracee Gleichner @ Pump up your book promotion for sending me this book.
I have to start by mentioning this - The best part of the whole experience was the letter I received along with the book. Unlike the usual letter from the publisher, this book included a nice letter from Maria's dad thanking me for agreeing to review his lil' girl's book! Isn't that adorable??
First, Here's a little description of the book:
Anything can look perfect…on paper
When her fiancé calls off their wedding at the last minute, Waverly Bryson wonders if her life will ever turn out the way she thought it would…or should. Her high-powered job in sports PR? Not so perfect. Her relationship with her dad? Far from it. Her perfect marriage? Enough said.
Perfect on Paper is a humorous tale of Waverly's efforts to cobble the pieces of a broken yesterday into a brand new tomorrow. What does the future have in store for her? Will she finally find what she's looking for?
Her dates? Cringe-inducing at times, definitely entertaining
Her friends? Often amused, definitely supportive
Her new crush? Possibly intrigued, definitely a catch
The results? Hardly perfect, definitely just right
As promised, the book turned out to be light, comical and entertaining.
I liked the simple yet interesting cover of the book. There was something appealing about the simple design.
I liked the goofy protagonist.Waverly is so adorable. I enjoyed her clumsy acts, her nonsensical observations, her insecurities, etc. She chokes on milky way bars before cute guys, she gets way too drunk, she falls at baseball games (with food and drinks in her hand, of course!), she breaks her ankle before new year's parties.. she's hilarious!
I loved the quirky "Honey" notes idea. It was innovative and I think that gave the book a whole new dimension.
"Perfect on Paper" is a perfect light read. When all that you want is to settle down with a light book, be sure to have Perfect on Paper within reaching distance.
