It’s time for this week’s Standalone Sunday! Standalone Sunday is a weekly meme created by Megan @ Book Slayer Reads to feature books not part of a series that you’ve either read or want to read. It’s super fun and easy to join in.
This week I’ve decided to do a book I just bought (literally two hours ago) and am so excited to read.
I See London, I See France by Sarah Mlynowski
I see London, I see France
I see Sydney’s underpants.
Nineteen-year-old Sydney has the perfect summer mapped out. She’s spending the next four and half weeks traveling through Europe with her childhood best friend, Leela. Their plans include Eiffel-Tower selfies, eating cocco gelato, and making out with très hot strangers. Her plans do not include Leela’s cheating ex-boyfriend showing up on the flight to London, falling for the cheating ex-boyfriend’s très hot friend, monitoring her mother’s spiraling mental health via texts, or feeling like the rope in a friendship tug-of-war.
In this hilarious and unforgettable adventure, New York Times bestselling author Sarah Mlynowski tells the story of a girl learning to navigate secret romances, thorny relationships, and the London Tube. As Sydney zigzags through Amsterdam, Switzerland, Italy, and France, she must learn when to hold on, when to keep moving, and when to jump into the Riviera… wearing only her polka dot underpants
What first drew me to this book was the adorable, light, cheesy cover. Then it was the author. I used to read the witch series she wrote and it was funny and witty and cute, perfect for summer. Then I read the actual summary, and I was in. First, the main character’s name is Sydney. Coincidence? I think not. And I’m in a very big travel mood, which this book promises good travel. Last but not least, there’s a romance, which seems like it will be a fun romance, so I was sold.
