I See London, I See France (I See London, I See France #1) Reviews
If you like a book with a definitive happily ever after, this is not the book for you. Most of the time, I'm okay with that, but considering Sydney's trip and the implications of her summer romance, I need some sort of closure. More than a few words in a text, at any rate. Beyond that, this book was fun. I've always wanted to backpack across Europe, and though I could have used way more description, it kind of felt like I was on said trip. And some of Syd's travel tips just might come in handy i ...more
What a cute book. I'm so glad I won an ARC through a Goodreads giveaway because I really enjoyed it. It was light and quick, a perfect summer read, and I could really identify with Sydney and her anxiety of leaving her responsibilities at home and trying to make things the best for her friends. It read so fast and I loved every minute of it. I can't wait to get my hands on a finished copy for my shelves.
College-age Leela was hoping to spend the summer in Europe with her boyfriend, but plans change when her boyfriend cheats on her. Leela then asks Sydney, her best friend, to go and before they know it, they have planned an incredible summer. They are going to Europe for over a month and visiting all the places they have dreamt about. But things don't always go smoothly. For starters, Leela's ex-boyfriend is on their flight to London leaving them wondering why he is still going to Europe? Sydney ...more
Yesssss. I am loving all the summery travel stories that 2017 has thrown at us. I went from accepting that I'll never get to go on holiday to constantly thinking about my next trip, even taking my first solo holiday this year. In The Girl's Guide to Summer (titled I See London, I See France in the US), 19-year-old best friends Sydney and Leela are off on a once-in-a-lifetime European adventure, visiting England, France, Italy, Switzerland, just to name a few.

I'll keep this short like my attention towards this book.
*Little, though shallow and saccharine, tidbits about each city they visited (I've visited several and, to tell the truth, it's the reason why I finished this book).
*Bland characters. I forgot Sydney's (the protagonist) name throughout the book because she bored me to no end (Her family drama, sadly, added nothing). Leela was a manipulative snot to the point of being an antagonist. Kat was okay, ...more
Het idee is erg leuk alleen waren er veel punten waardoor ik het boek niet uit wilde lezen. Stereotypering, vooroordelen, standaard dingen doen in de landen en Leela die ik wel kon verbranden. Daarnaast werd het wel leuker op ten duur. Oke deze recensie is niet zo enthousiast maar het is echt zo’n chaos boek en ik heb gemengde gevoelens. Wel zin om te reizen nu though.
Catfairy’s First Thoughts
Sarah Mlynowski is an author I have heard about through the Whatever After children’s series and when I found out she was writing a book about two best friends that go on an insane European adventure I just had to pick it up!
One of the first things I love about this book is the title of the book and the cover! The overall representation of the book just sucked me into my own little book vortex and I just had to gobble it up asap! The writing of this book is light and flu ...more
I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH
