bookishly ever afterTitle: Bookishly Ever After (Ever After Book One)

Author: Isabel Bandeira

Release Date: January 19, 2016

Publisher: Spencer Hill Contemporary

Synopsis: In a perfect world, sixteen-year-old Phoebe Martins’ life would be a book. Preferably one filled with magic and a hot paranormal love interest, like the ones that she reads obsessively. Unfortunately, her life probably wouldn’t even qualify for a quiet contemporary, but at least she has her books.


Everything changes when Phoebe learns that Dev, the hottest guy in the clarinet section, might actually have a crush on her. For advice on a personality overhaul, Phoebe turns to the heroines in her favorite books. Becoming as awesome as her book characters isn’t as easy as it sounds, and when another girl nets Dev for herself right from under Phoebe’s nose she’s crushed.


Then, to up the suckage even more, she gets assigned as his co-counselor at a sixth-grade camp where they are both volunteering and has to spend an entire week attached at the hip to the one guy on the planet she wants to avoid. Can she make it through the potential danger of romantic bonfires and nature walks without Dev figuring out she’s still not over him, or will her counseling career end in emotional disaster? Can she ever go back to her happy world of fictional boys after falling for the real thing? There isn’t a book on her shelf that covers that, and Phoebe will have to figure it out all by herself.  Will she end up in the friend zone, or will things work out…Bookishly Ever After?

Dramatically Ever After FinalTitle: Dramatically Ever After (Ever After #2)
Author: Isabel Bandeira
Release Date: 2017
Publisher: Spencer Hill PressSynopsis: Senior year is not shaping up to be the picture perfect movie Em Katsaros had imagined. Her super hot leading man is five thousand miles away. Her dad just got laid off. And Em can kiss her first-pick university goodbye if she doesn’t snag a scholarship.

To turn this Shakespearean tragedy into the Academy Award-winning dream Em has written for herself, she enters a speech competition and manages to cinch a spot in the US Youth Change Council national round. She gets to spend a week in Boston and her prayers might be answered if she can kick butt and win one of the national scholarships.
Everything seems to be going by the script until she finds out Kris Lambert—senior class president, stuck-up jerk, and her nemesis—is going, too. Cue the dramatic music. In Boston, Kris is different. Nice. Cute, even. But she knows his game way too well—be nice to your opponents and then throw them under the bus on your way to victory. Instead of becoming his next victim, Em decides to turn the tables by putting her acting and flirting skills to work. Unfortunately, as they get close to the final competition and judging, reality and acting start to blur.
Can Em use the drama from the stage to get the future she’s been dreaming of?

Isabel Bandeira2

Growing up, Isabel Bandeira split her time between summers surrounded by cathedrals, castles, and ancient tombs in Portugal and the rest of the year hanging around the lakes and trees of Southern New Jersey, which only fed her fairy-tale and nature obsessions. In her day job, she’s a Mechanical Engineer and tones down her love of all things glittery while designing medical devices, but it all comes out in her writing. The rest of the time, you’ll find her reading, at the dance studio, or working on her jumps and spins at the ice rink.

Isabel lives in South Jersey with her little black cat, too much yarn, and a closetful of vintage hats. She is represented by Carrie Howland of Donadio and Olson, Inc.

  1. I’m still waiting on Bookishly Ever After to come in at my library, but I’ve heard only good things about it so far. A romance about a girl who wants to live like her favorite books sounds right up my alley.

  2. I haven’t read either book, but I’d like to because I’ve heard so many good things about it and it looks like fun. Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. I read the first one and I knew I will love it. The title just got me. ☺ I would love to read the second part now. I am sure It will not disappoint.

  4. Id like to read this book because it looks great!!!! The plot sounds amazing too! Thanks for this chance!

  5. No I haven’t read this book yet, but it sounds very interesting and one that will keep you guessing.

  6. LOL – hot guy in the clarinet section? Don’t read many stories about that. The idea that they are thrown together at a camp that they are working at will be interesting. The second one sounds like a enemies to more than friends story which is one of my favorites.
