ARC Review : Jenny Sparrow Knows the Future

Book Title: Jenny Sparrow Knows the Future
Book Author: Melissa Pimentel
My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
Expected Publication Date: July 27th 2017

It’s been a really long time since I have read any chick-lit, so when I was offered this book, I was like, why not?

And why not indeed!

This was a good read. Light, fluffy just like your Saturday morning pancakes. I loved how it touched base in a comical way an important subject that we all (maybe not all?) went through at some stage in our lives.

Jenny Sparrow was all about planning. According to the calculated list she created when she was thirteen (laminated, mind you!), it’s time for her to get married. When her boyfriend proposes a break instead of a wedding, she goes off to join her best friend for a girl’s time out in Las Vegas. This seemed to be the perfect gateway till she wakes up the next morning, married and to a stranger!

It was really hilarious to embark on this self-discovery mission with Jenny, to realize that sometimes, things do no work out the way we want it to be and that it’s ok for them not to. It was quite amusing as well to read how Jenny dealt with all those sudden changes that happened after one irresponsible drunken night and to realize that you cannot force love/marriage but rather they would somehow find you.

This is a perfect read to de-stress with, have fun and enjoy at the moment. I would not consider this one as one of my favorite books or one what I would remember in the long run. But hey! That’s just me as I’m not really into chick-lit or rom-com anymore.

Thanks to @penguinUkbooks for the ARC, which was given in an exchange for an honest review.
