Very long and very dry in 60% of it. While it was a nice story it could have been told in less pages. 2.5 Stars ( )

Fun read about a group of women in a book club who decide to turn each book into an adventure. Chloe's seemingly ordinary life is turned upside down when her fiance breaks up by text just a few hours before the wedding. The next year is filled with a lot of challenges to get out of her comfort zone and she grows through it. Chloe is a Christian, but the book is not overly spiritual. ( )

Anyone who likes to read about food, art, books, or travel will find something here. ( )

I think anyone who has gone through a bad breakup will sympathize with Chloe as she struggles to find her single self again after her fiance leaves her the night before their wedding, via text message. The story follows the expeditions of a women's book club, The Paperback Girls, seen mostly through the eyes of Chloe, as they begin going on adventures related to the books they are reading.

This was a very easy read, however, I feel that it was filled with too many cliches and idioms. Way too many. The story, however, did not end in the cliche I expected, so I was pleased with the plot, overall, just got tired of the expressions. I did not fall in love with the other characters, so it is doubtful that I would continue reading the series. ( )

When Chloe is dumped a few hours before her wedding she couldn't imagine what the next year would hold. Her book club decides to have adventures, instead of just reading about them. This leads to rafting, blind dates, camping...and Paris! Safe-bookworm Chloe is stepping out of her comfort zone and having the adventure of her life. Will she adjust to life back home when she leaves Paris, or will she crave more adventure?

First book in the series, I am very excited to continue reading about these Getaway Girls! ( )
