Book Review of “Wanderlust” by Thea Dawson

“So much for destiny. This was more like fate’s idea of a practical joke.”

Monica Prescott, writer and world traveler, has everything she wants … except a man who’s free-spirited enough to join her for a life on the road. But when she bumps into Jason, the guy who broke her heart in college, she lets him think she’s engaged. It wouldn’t take much to fall for him again—and that’s one road she doesn’t want to go down.

Jason Moretti has a job he hates, and he’d like nothing better than to tell his boss to shove it. Then he runs into Monica, the girl he never got over. Thinking she’s settling down with a wealthy fiancé, he reinvents himself as an ambitious career man in a desperate bid to impress her.

Old feelings start to resurface, but Monica has trust issues and Jason doesn’t like risks. To top it off, Monica is leaving for Bangkok in two weeks—and she won’t be back anytime soon. Time is running out for them to come to terms with the past and embrace their wanderlust.

My Review:
There is an amazing feel-good factor that comes after you finish reading the book. It is like having chocolate – you feel great for a long time after eating. I got the exact same feeling after finishing the book. I was smiling for a long time.

WanderLust is a typical romantic story. There is nothing new with the concept of the story line. A boy meets girl – they fall in love – first heart-break – they meet again – fall in love again – has doubts – but end up together nonetheless. So what is new with this book? Why should anyone read it?

This book is different because of the freshness in writing style. This book is different because although the story line is age-old, the feelings that the protagonists go through is something anyone can relate to in their lives. Many instances in this book are so much common in our lives that we feel the story can very well happen to us too.

It is a sweet and cute romantic novel. The characters have their flaws in totally relatable manner. The way they react to situations are very much like anyone would do. That gives the story authenticity. It is a beautiful read and something which should be tried when someone is feeling low during the day. Totally beautiful.
