Book Review: Love and Chaos

It was back in September that I wrote a review on the first Brooklyn Girls novel. It was the perfect transition book for my post-grad life. It seems only appropriate that as I approach my one-year anniversary of graduating college, I write a review of the second novel, Love & Chaos.

I bought this on my Nook e-reader a while ago but never got around to reading it. I go through phases when I'm all about reading and then won't pick up a book for months. I flew through this book in a matter of a week and a half because it was that good. I just wanted to know what was going to happen.

This book was a continuation of the first book but it picked up a few months later and it was in the voice of a different character. Angie, the crazy, outspoken, drug infused roommate of Rookhaven was the narrator and it told her story.



At first, I was disappointed because I felt like I couldn't relate to Angie because of her outgoing, scatterbrained ways but getting inside her head and seeing the world of Brooklyn through her eyes was more like me than I realized.

I won't go too much into the plot because I'll let you figure it out for yourself but there were many surprises and twists & turns along the way. This was definitely more exciting, more of a "page turner" than the first book. It was almost suspenseful in a way and I loved that.

If you don't want to read Brooklyn Girls, you can definitely read this as a stand alone book. You won't be lost at all, you can surely enjoy it to the maximum.

This book series has quickly become one of my favorites for many reasons: the way the characters jump off the page, how they each have their own unique personalities & stories, how they are all so relatable in their own way. It soothes me and my anxiety to read about fictional people dealing with the same problems I do... because it proves that these are totally normal "20s growing pains" as I like to call them.

This was just such an incredible book for so many reasons. If you're graduating college soon or are in the middle of your own post-grad crisis, read the Brooklyn Girls series. You will not regret it!
