review Save the DateIs book This had the same vibe as A Billion Reasons Why but it has less of the Southern drawl and of real and sympathetic characters I liked Lucy from the start she s a darling but she was far from a weakling She s been toughened up by the hardships she experienced in her life and even if she suffers from a big inferiority complex her heart is always in the right place I admire her passion for the girls she s caring for and her fierce loyalty to what she believes in even if sometimes it comes off as stubbornness While I m not much taken by Alex s described good looks and his charisma I thought he was good for Lucy He is far from perfect which I really appreciated and I m sure his faults and his growth in the story is something that other people have experienced I liked how their relationship developed and how they saw each other in a better light despite the lie that they have built for their image I lost count at how many times I sighed and wished
#That They D Realize That #they d realize that were perfect for each other and that one of them would make a move that would break the the pretend relationship they have so they could move into something real Their banter was refreshing and witty none of the gooey over the top exchanges that didn t feel natural I liked that even if it seemed like an outrageous story everything in the story still felt real like it could happen to anyoneThis modern day CinderellaThe Princess Diaries like story by Jenny B Jones is definitely worth the read I can t relate 100% with everything but Save the Date shares important lessons on love compassion forgiveness and allowing God to work in our lives and I think those concepts are pretty universal anyway While there s nothing really new in the premise the characters their voices and the author s humor shines through in the story making this a very very good read I look forward to reading of Jenny B Jones books Totally awesome novel Can t wait to read of her booksOfficial ReviewI found my new favorite author Wow Jenny B Jones is an awesome writer Everything about her writing style is great I didn t ever want to put this book down Lucy and Alex were the perfect couple Both were great and I really dare I say it connected with them And no I do not mean the whole weird connection I PostgreSQL Server Programming - Second Edition just really understood them Jenny made them like real life people And there was one really cool part about this book Well there was thanust one good part about this book But all the Star Wars references I mean when Lucy s friend tells her May the force be with you you know that it will be an awesome book And oh my some of the regular uotes were ust as great I was laughing so hard throughout this book The one *negative thing about this book is the cover I do not *thing about this book is the cover I do not it at all Okay so I do like the blurred guy in the background because it doesn t show the face but that is the only thing I like about it The dress on the woman is not at all flattering definitely not for her And it is weird ish pose It kind of overwhelms the picture I am going to give the cover 1 star But oh well the cover didn t take away from the contents of the book Save the Date deserves 5 stars I loved it I will definitely be reading of Jenny s books And instead of saving the date you will have to save the weekend You won t want to put it down Title Save the DateAuthor Jenny B JonesAuthor s Website Reading Resolution 13 I have had this on my to read list for the longest time Maybe even for a year or twoThis review is written in my own opinions and word.
