Review: The Map From Here to There by Emery Lord
Thank you to NetGalley and Bloomsbury YA for sending me an early copy for review! RELEASE DATE: January 7, 2020 Right, so as much as I adored The Start of Me & You, this sequel was not it. It's not that I necessarily hated the experience of reading it, I just felt like it brought nothing new to the table after the end of the previous book. Of course, some of the stuff I loved from book one was still in this one, like the anxiety rep, and the overall relatability of Paige. The rest of it though, wasn't very compelling. I love romance books about the start of relationships, and I like ones about the middle when they are going well. I don't mind a few chapters of fighting or miscommunication because it adds tension and excitement, but in this book, the amount of unnecessary conflict just became annoying. Another element to this book that I thought I would enjoy was its content surrounding college decisions. However, its portrayal of the process wasn't very realistic, and you never even get to find out where she goes. I was just personally hoping for a lot more resolution. This book essentially ends in the same place it begins. While I was disappointed by this book, I'm definitely still excited to check out some of Emery Lord's other works!
