E–book/E–pub [Where Beauty Lies] by Elle Fowler

I received an ARC of Where Beauty Lies and Beneath the Glitter rom a Goodreads giveawayReview contains minor spoilersI started with Beneath the Glitter and really liked it It was Glitter rom a Goodreads giveawayReview contains minor spoilersI started with Beneath the Glitter and really liked it It was and un Where Beauty Lies was as well but it was a little confusingPlot Fun and creative but unrealistic I The Portable Guidance Counselor: Answers to the 284 Most Important Questions About Getting Into College found the drama with the dog and cat to be unbelievable I know it siction but that twist was a little too much Living with a Dead Language: My Romance with Latin for me I think Elle and Blair could have come up with something a little real Also Ielt that the storyline took a long time to develop and tie into what happened with the Speak Now Against the Day: The Generation Before the Civil Rights Movement in the South first book Beneath the Glitter ended on a cliffhanger and Where Beauty Lies seemed to pick up abruptly and didn t really recap much of what happened before Even though I read theirst book I would have liked a little background so I could completely understand where the book was goingCharacters I loved the descriptions of Sophia Ava Liam Hunter Dalton and Giovanni But the other characters like Lily seemed to just be in the book as Bongology: n. The Art of Creating 35 of the World's Most Bongtastic Marijuana Ingestion Devices filler It s hardor me to get into a book when I don t know #What The Characters Look Like # the characters look like and Blair didn t really describe Lily or the others in a physical way only in what they re major unctions are I ind it easier to enjoy a story when I can visualize a character and set up the scenes in my head I couldn t really do That With Any Of with any of secondary characters or even WhitneyWriting style The story read like a blog or a magazine I loved that It was like I was sitting next to Elle and Blair and they were just telling me a story without reading any of their notes Their narrative was easy to take in and enjoyableSetting This book was set in New York City not Los Angeles I m rom California so I m After You Drop Them Off: A Parent's Guide to Student Ministry familiar with LA but all I know about NYC is what I ve seen on TV and online Ielt that there was not much description of the setting just street names I would have liked Share, Retweet, Repeat: Get Your Message Read and Spread for them to explain about what NYC looks like and how iteelsOverall I liked the story I loved the dynamic relationship between Sophia and Ava I loved how they were both very smart and down to earth They seemed like real girls The Minimalist Baker's Everyday Cooking: 101 Entirely Plant-based, Mostly Gluten-Free, Easy and Delicious Recipes first book was definitely myavorite of the two but I would like to see them write another I was kind of sad when the story wrapped up at the end and there was no mention of another book I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys YA and chick lit 25Alright so I only read this book because it was bugging me that after so many years I still had no idea what had happened after book 1 ended on that cliffhanger It s illed with the same repeated and cringey drama and boy trouble and I ound myself scanning through a page in two seconds ju.

St so I could move on or even skip pages so I could save myself rom second hand embarassment I totally saw the ending save myself rom second hand embarassment I totally saw the ending and well I m just glad I inally get closure to this mind numbing series What can I say I just love this book Where Beauty Lies had much going 100 ways to Fight the Flab - and still have wine and chocolate for it that Beneath the Glitter which I also enjoyed Whereas Beneath the Glitter primarilyocuses on two girls moving to LA pursuing their careers and alling in love Where Beauty Lies has a healthy does of romance in addition to mystery and betrayal The Plot Was Engaging plot was engaging it is still a light un read at heartSophia and Ava are just as lovable as they were in Beneath the Glitter but this time they are united instead of being torn apart by a series of unfortunate misunderstandings They are so passionate about their work that you just have to root The Cello Suites : J.S. Bach, Pablo Casals, and the search for a Baroque masterpiece for them I also loved watching their relationships progress with the boys I thought they should be with there are definitely some love triangles going on here so I m keeping t Much like theirst book in this series this installment is cute The New Job Security fun andluffy but very much tailored to a particularly audience that I don t really The Day Fidel Died: Cuba in the Age of Raúl, Obama, and the Rolling Stones (A Vintage Short) fit into From a literary perspective there really isn t much in the way of plot theme or even depth or perhaps accurately elements that transcend the otherwise shallow seeming industry the story takes place in Most plot twists stop just short of posting a neon sign way way beforehand Most of the resolutions to their challenges are either tied up with surprising ease or with well awkward plot holes as when the main antagonist of pretty much the entire book is basically brushed aside in a paragraph with no explanation or resolution to that strand of the story On the bright side the characters are uirky and there are some genuinelyunny moments There s plenty of relationship angst to go around if that entertains you though it gets a bit painful to read if you don t The New Odyssey: The Story of Europe's Refugee Crisis find the male love interests particularly attractive or entertaining I thought it was very descriptive in some places but then skimmed over others Iound it a The Jumbee fun little pleasure read I was able to read it in a day but I did like it I definitely liked this way than theirst book I m even surprised at how much I really like this If #you liked the To Helvetica and Back first book but you weren tully satisfied with the #liked the Simple Art of Greatness first book but you weren tully satisfied with the definitely read on to this one I got through this much Where the Heart Waits faster and it certainly was an easier read There were aew things that bothered me and a ew things that I really enjoyed The story didn t really drag in places Sophia and Ava were not as annoying as I thought they were in the irst installment The Contessa was even annoying tha.
