The Boy Next Story is the second book in the BOOKISH BOYFRIENDS series by Tiffany Schmidt—I LOVED this one
You can totally skip the first book, A Date with Darcy, and read this one without missing a beat. I enjoyed this one much more than I did the first book, probably because I could relate more to introverted, overthinker, Rory. I also fell HARD for her love interest. And the intersection of the bookish storylines in this series makes me so happy! I love seeing all the modern takes on classics. This series actually makes me want to read and watch the classics — Little Women & Pride and Prejudice.
Other things I loved about The Boy Next Story is the focus on family and sisterhood, Rory working hard at school and seeing the results of her efforts, Rory deciding to be enough and not afraid anymore. So much chemistry and many swoon-worthy moments. Also, A+ for YA without language.
The Boy Next Story is an even better installment in the Bookish Boyfriends Series. I would especially recommend it for YA lovers looking for a sweet, fresh take on the classics. Can’t wait to read the next one in the series!
