Perfect on Paper was a laugh-out-loud romantic comedy. Maria Murnane provides us with a light and fun read. Honestly, it did drag a bit in the middle for me, I felt like the book couldn’t decide where it wanted to go, so there were some superfluous chapters in the middle of it for me. But the ending more than made up for it. I am happy to have gotten a chance to read this book.
Welcome to the life of Waverly Bryson:
- Her dates? Cringe-inducing at times, definitely entertaining
- Her friends? Often amused, definitely supportive
- Her new crush? Possibly intrigued, definitely a catch
- The results? Hardly perfect, definitely just right
In some ways Waverly Bryson leads a dream life, though she would be quick to disagree. One of the results reading this book had on me was making sure to appreciate the things around me, even when you just feel like complaining about them.
What other reviewers are saying:
“Maria does an excellent job of creating a comfortable and funny novel with realistic and likable characters….” - Blue Archipelago
“Even though Perfect…On Paper is firmly entrenched in the chick lit genre, I found it to have a bit more depth than the typical chick lit book I am used to. This made a pretty light read even more engaging than I would have expected.”
– Book Addiction
“I’d compare this book to a “Sex In the City” or Jennifer Weiner type of book. It’s a fun read and I did laugh out loud at several parts in the book.”
