Characters The Map That Leads To You

Esponsibility is looming but this is her one one last summer to be free Heather doesn’t expect to even meet Jack let alone fall in love with him Jack is an enigmatic Vermonter a few years older than she is who is following his g. You will try to imagine where he is in that exact instant when he had turned and started to travel towards you you to him and how the world around both of you took no notice Synopsis For those of you wondering what would happen if Nicholas Sparks and John Green had a book baby this is the product of what would happen And it ain t pretty folks Biblio Babble Pretentious Book is Pretentious The main uality this book has other than the romance aspect of course is the fact that it tries so damn hard to be pretentious It s like a person who lists off famous classics they said they have read but really haven t But they say they have to make themselves look better This is the bookish form of that It wants to be a grand romance but also one of those deep philosophical books that you could have deep book club discussions about It constantly wavered over whether it wanted to be a cutesy romance or a deep tome Those two things rarely mix well together and this book was no exception I mean Nicholas Sparks is sappy but not pretentious John Green is pretentious but not sappy Those two genres shouldn t really associate with one another if at all Aujugstus Jauters Jack uiller Couch is a combination of 1990s Leonardo DiCaprio Augustus Waters and Jughead Jones Leonardo DiCaprio because you will be continuously reminded throughout the novel that his name is indeed Jack Titanic fans will know what I m talking about and Augustus Waters because his arrogant pretentious levels are off the charts and Jughead Jones because he s prone to monologues about life love and meaning of philosophy and all that shit but no monologues about burgers unfortunately Look I get what the author was trying to create but Jack uiller Couch practically screams manic pixie dream boy It was just ridiculous There are going to be a lot of ladies who will probably fall all over his dialogue and trying to hard to be poetic monologues but Jack did none of that for me And let me tell you he was extremely shitty in the final act of the book because of the thing that he did that shall not be named but puts him permanently on the douch bag of the year award Message in the Notebook Dust jacket often lie this much I know The whole damn time I was reading this book I thought the big secret had to do with Jack s grandfather s journal and what the grandfather was trying to look for The journal is barely mentioned at all and we never really do find out what the grandfather was trying to find Instead we get a lot of drinking munching on edibles if you know what I mean and banging Which would all be fine if this were marketed as a college romance road trip book But the journal is made to be such a big deal that you would expect it to play a much bigger part than it actually did And it did not I wasn t expecting National Treasure thrills but for it to be almost a non presence in the storyline really bummed me out The Greatest Love of Not The main problem I had with this book was the romance Rather the complete lack of chemistry between Heather and Jack Their little meet cute on the train to Amsterdam Yeah no sparks there Impromptu meetings at clubs dancing the night away Melania Trump has chemistry with the Oompa Loompa than they are Witty banter that seems to never end Please page Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamant to show them how it s done I literally could not root for them as a couple because I found them to be as dull as cardboard If you re gonna market yourself as a romance novel make sure there s romance duh It s not that difficult I honestly found them annoying than adorable and couldn t uite figure out what made them gelSame Song Different Tune Good Lord this book was so predictable It s as if the author was stuck on just one plot point and device and said to himself Screw it I ll just write this over and over and hope people won t notice So for time s sake Heather and Jack travel and all is good They then have an argument because pretty boy Jack won t keep his pretentious mouth shut Heather storms off to another country Jack manages to find her in said other country and makes up with her Everything s all lovey dovey ooey gooey Then the cycle starts again Follow steps 1 4 and all that jazz It just became predictable and while all romance novels are essentially predictable this was snooze worthy predictable It got to a point that the book had gotten to such a stalemate that I just wanted it to end which thankfully it did While it s all right for authors to have separate books follow the same pattern and plotline it shouldn t bleed into books Traveling across Europe and having a vacation flirtation What could possibly go wrong Everything Everything could go wrong With a lukewarm romance pretentious act and an extremely arrogant MC this book is what would happen if Nicholas Sparks and John Green had a one night writing stand and ended up with this Do yourself a favor and leave this book on a metaphorical train back in Europe where it can sit alone in all its pretentious glory And DON T GIVE SPARKS OR GREEN ANY IDEAS

The Map That Leads To You

Randfather’s journal to various cities around Europe But in the same way that forces are bringing Jack and Heather together life and duty are pushing them apart And Jack has a secret that is going to change absolutely everything. I m a sucker for flirtatious banter like in The Bet and The Book of Broken Hearts The banter at the beginning of this one though had my eyes rolling Once I stopped rolling my eyes LOL it made for an entertaining read Liked the scenic European descriptions and the female friendship This is one of those books that is both heartbreaking and heartwarming

A romantic vivid novel that takes place in the tender time of a young woman’s life Heather has graduated from college and is traveling around Europe with her two best friends She’s left school responsibility behind and adult r. 35 stars rounded up This read like a Young Adult romance with the added fun of a group of friends traveling through Europe after college I absolutely loved the adventurous travel That part really made the book for me I think if I were fifteen or even twenty years younger I would have given this book five stars It was harder for me to connect to these characters and the drama and angst within the pages but I kept reading to see how it all ended Thanks to the author and publisher for an advance copy
