Anatomy of a Single Girl

"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."
First off I didn't realize this book was a follow up, but that really didn't make a difference in my reading experience. I would also like to warn you, that this book is basically all about teenage sex and 90% of the book is just Dominique and her hook up having sex. This book was a decent read, although there is no real plot to it.  However, I think this book would definitely fit in the "New Adult" genre. Since I think it is easily relate-able to girls in their late teens, early 20's.

  1. I didn't realise this was a sequel either! Good to know you can still read it without having read the first.
