"What Happens To Men When They Move To Manhattan?"
By Jill Knapp
Release Date July 24th 2014
If you're like me and you've always wondered what it would be like to live in New York then this book is for you.
Twenty three year old Amelia Hastings guides you through the ups and downs of living on the little island that never sleeps.
Amelia thought she had it all, a boyfriend, best friends, an amazing apartment, an education.
However after being dumped by her seemingly perfect boyfriend Nicholas, Amelia now finds herself day dreaming about her friend and classmate Michael. She has always had feelings for Michael but now that Nicholas is out of the picture will she finally take a shot and see where things lead?
While juggling school, friends, heartbreak and love Amelia gives you an insight into the life of a true New Yorker.
This book was like a breathe of fresh air. While the main characters life is far from perfect the writing never came off as overly dramatic or whiny.
Too often I read a book and find that while the main character is amazing the sub characters seem to be nothing but 'fillers'. People to just get us from one page to the next. This book is filled with characters that, while didn't have a huge part, still caught my attention and kept it. They were interesting, engaging, unique and they came to life on the pages before my eyes.
Jill Knapp description of city life and the people who dwell within it are exquisite. I felt like I was right there along side Amelia and her friends, walking to class, riding the subway, shopping and cramming for final exams while eating cold take out and drinking wine.
I look forward to the next book in the series and I can't wait to see where Amelia's journey will take us next.
Until next time,
