Book Review: Anatomy of a Single Girl by Daria Snadowsky

Anatomy of a Single Girl (Anatomy #2) by Daria Snadowsky
Genre: New Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: January 8, 2013
Publisher: Delacorte Book

With Judy Blume-like honesty and insight, this sequel to Anatomy of a Boyfriend is about life after first love--romance, sex, friendship, family, and the ups and downs of life as a single girl.

After everything that happened—my first boyfriend, my first time, my first breakup—jumping back into the dating game seemed like the least healthy thing I could do. It’s not that I didn’t want to fall in love again, since that’s about the best feeling ever. But as a busy college premed still raw from heartbreak, which is the worst feeling ever, I figured I’d lie low for a while. Of course, as soon as I stopped looking for someone, an impossibly amazing—and devastatingly cute—guy came along, and I learned that having a new boyfriend is the quickest way to recover from losing your old one. 

The moment we got together, all my preconceptions about romance and sex were turned upside down. I discovered physical and emotional firsts I never knew existed. I learned to let go of my past by living in the present. It was thrilling. It was hot. It was just what the doctor ordered.

But I couldn’t avoid my future forever. 

In Daria Snadowsky’s daring follow-up to Anatomy of a Boyfriend, eighteen-year-old Dominique explores the relationship between love and lust, and the friendships that see us through.

Anatomy of a Single Girl is the second book in the Anatomy Series by Daria Snadowsky. Dom is in college now, and she's still getting over her heartbreak. She finds a rebound guy, who I really liked. I hope we haven't seen the last of him. Dom's character had some tremendous growth within this story. She is figuring herself out. Like book one, there was a lot of sex, and I felt like it took away from the story at times. Calvin is a doll too. I would love to see that friendship grow into something more, but it doesn't look promising at this point. Dom came to terms with a lot in this book, and it didn't just have to do with Wes. She's growing up.

Anatomy of a Single Girl by Daria Snadowsky was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

“I love where he and I stand right now. It’s like we’re on the brink, and everything’s full of excitement and potential precisely because the heavy making out is still something to look forward to. I realize we can’t remain PG-rated forever. I’m all too aware, though, how easy it is to let hooking up become the crux of a relationship. Then you forget how to just be together and why you should stay together. So for the meantime I’d like to take things slowly in order to prevent hooking up from ever getting too

Amy would say I’m overreacting, but I’m just trying to learn from past mistakes.”
