 Book summary:


After everything that happened—my first boyfriend, my first time, my first breakup—jumping back into the dating game seemed like the least healthy thing I could do. It’s not that I didn’t want to fall in love again, since that’s about the best feeling ever. But as a busy college premed still raw from heartbreak, which is the worst feeling ever, I figured I’d lie low for a while. Of course, as soon as I stopped looking for someone, an impossibly amazing—and devastatingly cute—guy came along, and I learned that having a new boyfriend is the quickest way to recover from losing your old one.

The moment we got together, all my preconceptions about romance and sex were turned upside down. I discovered physical and emotional firsts I never knew existed. I learned to let go of my past by living in the present. It was thrilling. It was hot. It was just what the doctor ordered.

But I couldn’t avoid my future forever.


     Anatomy of a Single Girl is a follow up to Daria Snadowsky first novel, Anatomy of a Boyfriend. (You can read my review  here.) It could be read without previous book, but my recommendation would be to read them both. That way you will not have that nagging felling like something is missing and you are the only one who doesn't get the joke.

     I have to admit that I liked second novel much more than the first one. It got my attention from the first line: "The logical thing would be for me to date Calvin Brandon."  Anatomy of a Single Girl is not predictable type of story. I did have some expectations when it comes to the plot after I finished reading first book, but I was wrong. So wrong. For starters, this is real new adult story with lot of explicit scenes, but, again, it is not like any new adult novel I've read so far. Story, characters, ending... Everything is different.

     I wasn't Dominique's biggest fan so far, but here... Oh, boy. This girl just became my hero. You know which type of girls I like. Strong, smart, girl who tells you exactly what she thinks and wants and doesn't feel urge to apologize for that. I always hated that saying, but it fits perfectly, she found her roar. She grow up and realized that life isn't perfect. Love isn't perfect. I know that most of the readers didn't like whole sexual health theme, but I found it as one of the most positive messages for all of the young girls who will read this book. Think with your head and not your hormones.

     I will read everything Daria Snadowsky writes. That is my final impression of this amazing woman. As for you, pick up this book and see where it will take you.

Until next time,

  2. Glass, this book seems to be hitting all the right notes. A stronger sequel, a kick-ass heroine, and a college setting. Clearly, I need to pick this one up ASAP! You've made me so excited to read this series and I hope I can get to it soon! *fingers crossed* Wonderful review, dear!

  3. I read both your reviews, I'm running short on time (catching up on commenting) so this comment goes for both reviews. I just got these books (won them) and have been hearing good things. I have heard the 2nd book is better than the first so I'll keep that in mind when I read. These are great covers!

  6. From reading your reviews I'm definitely thinking this is my kind of new adult book series—aka NOT totally predictable with troublesome romances and characters. I'm glad to hear you liked the sequel even better and that Dominique was such an amazing character. "Strong, smart, girl who tells you exactly what she thinks and wants and doesn't feel urge to apologize for that." <--YES, this is my favorite character to read about too!

  7. Now I'm super curious about this series (or rather standalones). I love that it's so unpredictable. That's the making of a great read right there!

  8. I've been curious about this series. I love the sound of it, and hopefully this girl gets a happy ending after having her heart broken. Wonderful review, Glass. :)

  9. LOL! That joke example is so mean. I hate when that happens in a new environment where everyone knows the inside jokes and you're the only one left out. I'm glad it wasn't predictable and she's right, life--nothing, for that matter--isn't perfect. Such a lovely review, Glass!

  10. I too love the girls who will tell you what they think!

  11. That is series sounds fantastic. It sounds like such a different NA read. I should check it out soon.
    And there seems to be character development since the MC became your hero in this.
    Great review!

  13. I loved how different this book was...it had a lot of great positive moments, especially about sexual health, etc. I also really appreciated that it didn't go where most NA books would go! It was unique in that respect.

  14. It's great that you enjoyed this installment so much. Even better that this isn't the typical NA. You're making me want to read this series, Tanja!

    1. I know what you mean about liking it when it gets better - recently I read sequel that I hated and I gave first book 5 stars. :/

  18. Ooh, I love when a sequel improves fom the first book, I'll have to check out this series for sure :D I also like it deals with serious issues in a good way.

    1. I like when the book I pick up has a good and positive message.

  19. Yay for good sequels! It's always more meaningful when a book doesn't suffer from second-book syndrome, and all I've been hearing about this series is really good stuff. I love that it's NA but it's so much different from other books, because seriously. The NA books these days seem to have the same plots, with the same cast of characters, except that their names have changed, and I also like how you stress on how nothing is perfect (perfect love - ha! Those other NA books have it backwards), because it's so true.

    I definitely hope to give this a go someday, so thanks for such a great review, Glass!

    1. Megan, you read my mind.:)
      That's my main problem with NA romance novels - is there any other kind of NA novel? - it's always about that boy (who is this impossible mix of a player, bad boy, nerd, pirate, Edward Cullen, poet, Dom, cry-baby) and a "wallflower" girl. And someone is virgin - most likely a girl.:/

  20. The first thing that catches my attention is the cover and when you are telling us that there is a strong women leading the story behind it makes me even more interested.
    This is the first NA book that really catches my eye, thank you for your review.
    By the way what doesn "ja citam, a ti?" mean? sorry for the lack of accents.

    1. It means I'm a reader, what about you? :))

      Izbriši
  21. Haha! I'm happy that Dominique's character changed for the better for you. I think that now I know that it has a sexual health theme that I would be more prepared for it and less weird about it. Thanks!
