Book Review – Despedida de Solteira – Mila Wander

The book trilogy title could be translated as The Bachelorette Party. I tried to review the books separately but I couldn’t do so without spoilers. This is my attempt to review the complete trilogy. I got to know the book at the social networks, becauseit was popular on one of the Facebook groups I joined. The author was publishing the chapters on wattpad and published them on Amazon.
The books tell the story of Amande, a very politically correct woman, addicted to routine and neta freak. She is engaged to João Pedro, her boyfriend for nine years now. Everything is ready for the wedding. It’s only walking down the aisle and say ‘I do.’ But she hadn’t thought about her bachelorette party, though.
Jessica, one of her best friends, had thought that through and planned for Amande the best bachelorette party ever. Their crew would go to a beach house where they’d enjoy a luxury weekend served by very hot men. Amande is afraid of this party, but since she is really in need of a break from the craziness of the wedding planning, she goes. What she didn’t expect was that this weekend would mesa every single thing she had already set up for her life.
At her bachelorette party she meets Caleb, a free-spirited man, which in some aspects was a lot like her. He says and does things that make Amande think and question her previously planned life. He is responsible for setting her free from many taboos. The book, despite its sexual focus, makes us think about other aspects of our wishes and preferences.
It is a very creative writing through both Amande and Caleb’s perspectives on the same events and, despite the fact that it is controversial, I highly recommend these books. It will make you pay attention to your wishes while you follow Amande on the discovery of hers. We’ll be taken to rethink our decisions. Do we plan things according to our own preferences or do we take what people think and expect from us into account?
Even if something is completely planned, the author makes us think that it is never too late to redesign our future. What is your deepest desire?

Nice to meet you!

Hey! This is my first post here at The Covey View.

I currently write in two blogs along with this one. In Rabiscos da Ju I write about almost anything that comes to mind, my favorite stuff and the best texts I read while surfing the web. But I also have a book blog, Café com Livros, in which I write reviews for the books I read.
So, since reading is one of the things I like the most, I’ll frequently bring to you reviews for the Brazilian books I read, so that you can get to know more about our literature, which has blossomed recently, especially due to facebook groups and the amazing self-publising tools, like Amazon.
Possibly, the books I review here won’t be already translated to your language, but your interest may encourage the authors to do that in the near future, so your feedback on these reviews are most welcome, ok?
Stay tuned! The first review comes on the next  post!
