If anyone has been listening to my not-so-subtle hints, I should have a very literary Christmas. Ellie is an endearing heroine.
Ellie, an aspiring young author, narrates with such a unique and witty voice that is highly entertaining to read. The thing is, it's called a love triangle, but it's not cliche.

Ellie doesn't know, but to help her cope with the drama in her life, Chase gets put into Ellie's novel, along with all her other friends and Parker. As she interacts with her friends some are mean , she rewrites her relationships in her own medieval story. Most of the time, when I write a review, I try to pen my own little blurb for the story. She even has a perfect real-life villain in the brooding Chase, who hails from the wrong side of town. Often this strays into the explicit content that puts me off most contemporaries whether it be sex or drinking or smoking or swearing.
I really like how supportive Gabrielle's parents are to her writing career later on. The way Miss Morrill styled Ellie's character and personality really shines and is attractive, making it easy to like Miss Sweet despite her flaws. Her only talents are reading, writing, and drinking coffee, so career options were somewhat limited. The author did an excellent job letting the reader understand the mind of a young author. In need of a good cry and some chocolate. As for the landscape and scenery it was well portrayed and beautiful. Fun funny main character Ellie Sweet is so endearing and being a lover of books myself and also having dabbled some in writing, I could totally relate to Ellie, her insecurities, her dreams for the future.

From the Book: In the hush of the library, I draw my laptop out of my bag. I was genuinely angry at her jerk friends. But I personally find it a very bad idea for the Christian girl to try to bring it out, rather than a really great friend who's a guy.
