    " This book was not my cup of tea at all. This is Christian chick-lit, which I was unaware of when I started. Once I found out, I opened my mind as I am always looking for a new story to be told. The only problem with this one was the main character. Everything was about being Christian, only in the next sentence she would judge someone and make fun of them, or look down on them as being inferior. Not very "Christ-like"...I cannot stand reading that demeanor for fun. Where the book really lost me was when the main character narrated that she thought life would be easier for her because she "had God on [her:] side." And this belief was held throughout the book. After that, I had to move on. "

    " Cute book...fun read! "

    " I am so torn on this book! Overall, very cute, fun, clean story. I love Christian Chick Lit. I love fun fluff! This book would have easily gotten 5 stars, but I had trouble with the drinking references and no, not what one might think. I don't have a real problem with characters in Christian fiction socially drinking (and like a previous reviewer stated the one time she did get drunk, she regretted it and it never happened again) but the problem I had was how acceptable and OK it was for them all to make fun of Christians who don't drink at all and the Christians who don't drink were looked down upon. Even by the main character! Who hid she was even a Christian until the very end and then didn't change at all to the point the last few pages she was laughing along with the others when she drank a diet Coke at a bar. Really?? It was the mockery I could do without. It was unnecessary. I don't feel Emily grew or matured in her faith at all and she didn't come across as a very nice person OR smart. Looking back, 4 stars may be generous, but I DID read the book in one day and it WAS overall entertaining except for a couple of parts. I LOVED AND ADORED The Book Of Jane. Highly recommend that one and I am eagerly looking forward to Consider Lily. I love these authors' writing style. I just wished if Emily chose to socially drink she didn't have to mock others for not doing so. Her witness was off. "

    " I thought this book was cheesy. I started it, and then I stopped reading it after a few chapters. I only picked it up and finished it because I was out of things to read. It concerns a girl trying to feel comfortable being a Christian in a big city and finding a way to feel comfortable without feeling like an outcast. If that's your cup o' tea, then read on! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 S. | 1/28/2014

    " The twist of this chick-lit book is that the main character, Emily, is a Christian and will only date Christians. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 1/25/2014

    " THIS is what I was looking for in Christian fiction! Believable story, well developed characters, funny lines, a strong woman, and people who struggle with making the right decisions but prevail in the end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brittany | 1/21/2014

    " The storyline seems interesting. Turned out to be rather boring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Toocrazycosmoyahoo.com | 1/17/2014

    " Good writing, but the message is overly preachy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana | 12/30/2013

    " A light-read. I enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 12/14/2013

    " The writing wasn't brilliant, but I couldn't put it down because I got so involved in the story. It was good and clean. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 11/29/2013

    " This book was a fun read. It is about a Christian girl going to New York. It was clean and entertaining "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurel | 11/20/2013

    " Really liked the "Book of Jane", but "Emily Ever After" fell a little short. It had a really quick (read: unbelievable) romance, and I ended up being a little disappointed. Still had an pretty-enjoyable storyline, and was an easy read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dara | 10/15/2013

    " seemed to be written by a high schooler. very unrealistic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emilie | 5/27/2013

    " I didn't enjoy this one as much as The Book of Jane, but it was still a really good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christiana | 3/17/2013

    " Christian fictiony, but not overtly so, if you're looking for that sort of thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaime | 12/27/2012

    " Good book for 20 year old girls. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 12/14/2012

    " Enjoyable to listen to, not sure if I would like to read it. "

    " This book is really good to read you should try it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessyka | 4/15/2012

    " Another Chic Lit read. Smalltown girl gets job offer in NYC. Will her big city soul get the best of her? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kaye | 12/4/2011

    " Eh. Some of the new-to-New York moments and comments were enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 11/2/2011

    " Good clean fun :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marsha | 10/6/2011

    " Decent book but a little less developed than what I expected - good lesson about living faith but not very detailed character development "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 8/20/2011

    " This was a fun, modern, light-hearted book that was so easy to read. I liked the real-life dilemmas Emily faced and her way of being able to eventually deal with them. If I could do half stars, it would be 3 1/2 stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mirah | 7/22/2011

    " Good book, quick reading...about a girl balancing city life and her moral character. I enjoyed it. I don't know if it's labeled as Christian Chick Lit, but that would be a good category for it, in my opinion..would recommend it.
    "

    " The best part about this book were the emails sent between friends and family. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amandajustamanda | 9/12/2010

    " This was a terrible book! It is about a book editor and written by two book editors, yet the EDITING WAS TERRIBLE. Shift Tense, words left out, lines like "gazed into his eyes." UGH. The main character Emily--was stupid too. I hated her.
    Yet, I read the whole thing. What a waste. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erica | 8/13/2009

    " Even from a secular point of view, the integration of the main character's faith was awkward, forced, and overly simplistic. It actually distracted from the plot rather than enhancing it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 5/19/2009

    " very predictable, but fun story about a young girls first year living in New York. Her loves, losses and triumphs are simple but a nice easy read. "
