Beauty and the Book Boyfriend, K. M. Galvin

The Blurb 

When Bellamy Strong started writing, it wasn’t with the intention of becoming the next phenomenon. It was…to be blunt she had no friends. School is rough on the anti-social. It’s even harder publishing your books and the world decides it wants a piece of you.

Now her series is ending and her publisher is demanding she show up for her fans. End her reclusive persona. A three month, worldwide book tour dressed as Makyla, the lead character in her book. As for Maxsen, the love interest, her fans pick model Caleb Pace to play the role during a casting contest. No big deal right?

What happens when your fantasy comes to life and turns out better than you imagined?

My Thoughts 

Aaaaah, I'm a happy gal right now! 

I really loved this book: it was a great combination of relatable characters, interesting story and nice and sweet idea. I really love Bellamy: I found her brave, entertaining and incredibly funny, even when life gets hard and harder. And her voice was very real, and one of the best I've read in a long time, in my opinion. It was like having a best friend on the paper (can we be best friends?).

Her relationship with Caleb was so good, too! They get right under each other's skin, for all the right reasons! Their chemistry felt real and was fun, funny and so greatly crafted I could not put the book down (I read it in one sitting). 

It was a sweet book, just what you need as spring is on us, about a real girl like we all are and her story as she grows more confident into her own skin, and we need more feel-good books like this one!
