#BookReview: Practically Ever After (Ever After #3) by Isabel Bandeira

Synopsis: Ever practical Grace Correa has planned the perfect life.

She has Leia, the perfect girlfriend, amazing friends, is part of Pine Central’s glitterati, and has been accepted into her first-choice university guaranteeing one of the best paying jobs in the country. To Grace, life is an equation where everything can be perfectly calculated to ensure maximum success and the perfect future.

The problem is that life has a funny way of getting in the way of plans.

With high school rushing to an end, Grace’s plans start falling apart. The “piece of cake” final design project is anything but easy, everyone seems to need everything from her, her schedule is a mess, and after a massive fight, all signs say that breaking up with Leia is the practical choice for both of them. Especially since long distance college relationships never seem to last. Except…Grace starts to wonder for the first time in her life if she messed up her calculations.

What can a practical person do when love is the least practical choice?


About the Author: Isabel Bandeira grew up surrounded by trees and lakes in Southern New Jersey, right on the edge of the Pine Barrens. Her summers were always spent in Portugal, where the cathedrals, castles, and ancient tombs only fed her fairy tale obsession. Between all those influences and her serious glitter addiction, it wasn’t a surprise when she started writing stories of her own.

In her free time between writing and her day job as a Mechanical Engineer who designs and develops medical devices, she reads, dances, figure skates, and knits.

Isabel lives in New Jersey with her little black cat, too many books, and a closetful of vintage hats. 

Rating: ★★★
My Review: I am sad to say that this one didn't mesh with me as much as I was hoping.  I thought that it really reminded me of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. As each character embodies one aspect or trait and they don't revert from that which was really really weird.  When I read this I didn't realize that this was a book three and well I hadn't read book two. But I didn't feel lost at all.  I did like the story overall but I think that it would work well as a transition book from those that are switching to higher young adult titles. 

"Although the weather may remain balmy for a few more weeks, the season of beach trips and pool days is nearly over. While it's always a little sad to say goodbye to the summer, it's always a joy to greet fall and its delights — including all the brand new rom-com novels that will hit bookstores in the next few months. Even if you haven't already read all the summer rom-coms recommended by Bustle, there are tons of sweet and steamy books to keep you company on the chilly autumn nights ahead. Below you'll find 21 books, all coming out between September and November, that explore both time-tested tropes (enemies-to-lovers! fake relationships! second chance romances!) and new twists in the rom-com genre. Whether you're in the mood for historical rom-com like Evie Dunmore's Bringing Down the Duke, a contemporary romance like Talia Hibbert's Get a Life, Chloe Brown, or a highly-anticipated new release like Christina Lauren's latest, Twice in a Blue Moon, you'll find it — and so much more — below. Oh, and just in case you needed a reminder that the holidays are a mere three months away, there are a few festive books on the list, too. Happy reading! Practically Ever After (Nov. 12) Grace Correa has planned the perfect life. She has an incredible girlfriend, amazing friends, and plans to attend her first-choice university next year. But high school is almost over, and Grace’s plans are falling apart. Can Grace recalibrate — and find perfection in the imperfections?" — Kerri Jarema, Books writer at Bustle
