    Favourite uote And just the way he smiled the kind of smile that exists only for you and anticipates the next good thing coming for you or that whatever comes from you next is bound to be good made my heart beat a little faster Made my breath come a little uickerI Now Pronounce You Someone Else surprised me in a good way I was just expecting a sweet love story and that is amazing part of it but it was also witty funny and smart coming of age storyErin McCahan writing is fun and simple but at the same time has depth I think it is because Bronwen has a strong and geniune narrative It is easy to connect with her as a character and understand and feel what she is going through Bronwen is dealing with the pressures of first love family school getting into college friendships and trying to make it all work together Jared what a sweetheart He is kind of the perfect boyfriend Their romance develops so slowly at first McCahan had me on the edge of my seat waiting for it to happen And when it finally did it was one of the most beautiful first kisses I have ever read I had to read re read it a few times well I am a romantic sapBronwen also has a uite a few family issues to deal with Like a mother she never seems to please a wonderful stepdad who she thinks doesn't want her as a daughter and a brother who is 'Jesus' McCahan deals with these issues in a believeable way She doesn't iron out the details so everything end perfectly but rather makes something the family has to work at Overall I Now Pronounce You Someone Else is an impressive novel that shouldn't be missed Runs and tackles Tina in a hug Thanks for convincing me to read this This book just made me smile

    What a perfect book to read around Valentine’s Day I loved I Now Pronounce You Someone Else but anyone who knows my reading style and what makes me suee knows I’m a sap for this kind of stuff I find it pretty lovely and overall just beauteous The characters were great in this story Bronwen really resonated with me She’s sharp funny slightly broken and full of hopes and dreams I respected her morals and how she stood by what she believed in Grant it it’s a bit unrealistic in today’s day and age but heck she’d standing by her beliefs so good for her I don’t even know where to start with Jared GUSHSUEEAWWTEARSIGH I lurved everything about him and he’s my perfect fictional character His way with words and his sincerity had me sighing and smiling like a goof every time he opened his mouth Gah Oh and that first kiss Holy smokes What a kiss Repeat Repeat That was one of the best written moments in the love departmentAnother character I really came to care for was Bronwen’s stepfather Whitt What a sweetheart I lurved him to pieces in a paternal sort of way and that moment when Bronwen and Whitt discovered the truth about the “papers” had me on the verge of tears Again another perfectly written moment I didn’t like Bronwen’s mom at all but I’m pretty sure she was written that way I never came to care for Peter and I wondered why he kept himself at a distance some additional insight on that character would have been nice but definitely not a deal breakerThe storyline was original and well presented as Bronwen struggles to discover who she really is after the death of her father She calls herself Pheobe Lillywhite Gawd I loved that name as it reminds me of someone dear to me ahemahem Hannah wink and waits for the day her real family will come to pick her up as she’s convinced she was switched at birth Along comes Jared and a whirlwind romance ensues with all the perfect moments of first love However they are at different points in their life and after a commitment that had me fall off my chair Bronwen soon realizes she needs to find herself before she becomes someone else’s Here is one book I would have loved to read an epilogue for I can pretty much imagine my own ending but putting it to paper makes it real Overall what a fun light romance in the YA genre that really hit home in so many ways Perfectly done Loved itFavorite uote ”I never promise what I can’t keep So good night Bronwen Sleep well Dream of me” Jared said Song Choice Jared to Bronwen Calling You – Blue October

    I Now Pronounce You Someone Else is the story about Bronwen Oliver who has never felt that she fit in with her family Switched at birth That must be it These are not my peopleThis is a story about being lost within yourself found by the one that loves you only to be lost in that love and then finally finally finding that perfect moment where you know you truly belongI absolutely adored this book Erin McCahan pens a wonderful story written with so much passion and compassion combining the pressures of love with trying to belong to your own life at the same time making this love story not only honest and heartfelt but genuine and realisticDid not think I would love this story as much as I did but there wasn't a moment I didn't enjoyBronwen and Jared have the kind of relationship that makes people what to swoon melt smile and basically gush Some might find it lame Others cheesy Me? I'm a sap and found it absolutely perfectBronwen was a great character I was very proud of her morals she knows what she wants and doesn't want in a few aspects of her life Loved her humor she's sweet and kind and very very lost I understood and sympathized with her through out the entire story and found myself nodding in agreement with her every decisionJared is just amazing and at first I thought that maybe he was a little to sweet too good and maybe even a little to perfect but some where between Dream of me and the Here no jokes I really fell fast in love with his character and the way he loves And I gottta say that this book contains the most perfect first kiss I have ever readI also thought that Whitt was an outstanding character some of those scenes really pulled me in it was so preciousThere was a lot fun and funny moments I liked about this book the family arguing at Thanksgiving and banter for one the embarrassments for another and most of all I love that it never felt fake not even once and when I closed the book I let out a content sighWitty Warm and Wonderful this is a fantastic debut and I'm definitely going to be looking for McCahan's books in the futureAnyone looking for a great love story mixed with family comforts will love thisI had a great time it's a uick and light and made me feel like a totally cheese ball after reading it but hey there it is;

    This is one of those books that I can really gush over for forever It was sweet and endearing and just plain sweet The story is about Bronwen and her life after her father past way some time ago Her mom is pretty much nonexsistent She only wants Bronwen to be polite and respectful of others no matter the cost to Bronwen Whitt Bronwen's stepdad is there for as much as he can be even though she is holding onto a very big grudge While dealing with her life she bumps into Jared a friend of her brothers from school and they hit it off from the start Jared is so sweet and what we get to see is what happens when two people meet and fall in love at the wrong time I found their situation very realistic and I can totally see why McCahan chose to put her characters through so much I loved the way it ended My only complaint is that I would have liked to learn about Peter Bronwens brother and what makes him the golden son He seemed absent enough that he could have been left out all together imo Other than that I loved this book and I will definitely keep track of this author

    Street Corner TBR Challenge #2 per TinaOk So I'm really glad you picked this Tina This is one of those I might not have ever read I tend to shy away from the Chick litRomantical fluff section but I really really enjoyed this oneI must be turning into a sap I had to wipe my eyes a couple of times while reading this bittersweetThe uick spoilersBronwen meets Jared they fall in love He is practically perfect she thinks She is a senior in high school and he is graduating college They get engaged She is determined to go to college at Hope He wants to start his life with her It all comes twisting apart when Jared is offered a job out of state I am so shocked that he would actually have asked her to move with him If you were truely in love and wanting to your relationship to work he should have just turned the job down and tried to find something closer by I know that seems sort of selfish for Browen to expect that but that had been their plan all along I like how they are crossing paths in the end but I really wanted a happily ever after in this book But all in all I am glad it wasn't as fluffy as I had imagined it was going to be There were moments that were extremely deep and meaningful I would love to read by the same author she writes very easy to read Super uickcute I'd recommend to you if you are a fan of romance novels35 starsLight weight breezy fun moving little bookSidenote Big props to the author for making out herione be a platform for waiting for marraige to have sex There needs to be books advocating that lifesytle instead of glamourizing slutty behavior

    When I started I Now Pronounce You Someone Else I honestly didn’t know what to expect The blurb intrigued me and sounded like something right up my alley And after reading it I’m glad to say I enjoyed it If your looking for a coming of age story – which I found to be different from others I’ve read – why not give this a goI found I connected with Bronwen some but not a heap I think it would be impossible not to have some connection just because of the story and everything that’s going on Moving on let’s get to Jaredwhat do I think about him? Definite swoon material Throughout the whole book the story kept me interested I didn’t want to put it down and wanted to power through to the end to find out what was going to happen The author’s writng was good; not GREAT but not bad It was simple clean and easy to read I read a few reviews before deciding to pick this book up and read in one of my friends reviewswho calls herself a romantic sap and I uote “one of the most beautiful first kisses I have ever read” I didn’t really think anything of it until I came upon it and I absolutely agree with her Trust me it was worth the wait After reading the kiss scene I had to put the book down but when I reopened it I couldn’t help but revisit it again ;The ending was perfect I can’t emphasise that enough Don’t get me wrong it was sad – even brought tears to my eyes – but in the end it worked out I liked that the author summed the story up tied all the loose ends and didn’t leave the reader in the lurch waiting for a ‘never gonna happen seuel’

    So at first I had no idea what I was going to think of this book But things ran into high gear after the first chapter and did not let up until the end I think the book's description is really the best one I can giveEighteen year old Bronwen Oliver has a secret She's really Phoebe the lost daughter of the loving Lilywhite family That's the only way to explain her image obsessed mother; a kind but distant stepfather; and a brother with a small personality complex Bronwen knows she must have been switched at birth and she can't wait to get away from her family for goodThen she meets Jared Sondervan He's sweet funny everything she wants — and he has the family Bronwen has always wanted too She falls head over heels in love and when he proposes marriage she joyfully accepts But is Jared truly what she needs? And if he's not she has to ask What would Phoebe Lilywhite do?I was really shocked at how much I loved this book It is not just a romance like the description might suggest on the surface of things Bronwen has REALLY deep seated family issues and feels shut out emotionally and disconnected from her brother and her mother She was really close to her Stepdad for the first five years after he married her mother and actually thought of him as her father But due to miscommunications and heavy silences that relationship has broken down a lot as well Bronwen really is in love with Jared but because of the way her family life is she goes rushing headlong into the relationship and losing herself inside of it I won't give away the ending suffice it to say that things do magically get 'all better' and end with a neatly tied up happily ever after But they do end in a way that is true to real life and this scarily believable story I am now in love with this book and would recommend it to anyone who wants a swoony romance major family drama and an awesome heroine My dream cast for this one would have to beAimee Teegarden as 'Bronwen Oliver' aka Phoebe Lilywhite blonde hairimage error

    I like this book I will admit it wasn't exactly what I expected but I still like it It was an enjoyable break from the catty sex crazed teen novels or the teen vampire novels or the dark depressing anguish filled teen abuse novels that are in abundance It isn't that these other books don't have a place but I freuently crave a book about a normal girl with normal friends who isn't sleeping around drinking swearing dressing like a vamp or eating like one and has normal dreams and aspirations And although I would say our heroine Bronwen fits these criteria she is also not normal After all who is?Bronwen is a high school senior loving her boyfriend and eager to marry him After all he's perfect they're perfect together She's not crazy about her family loves his Marriage right after high school will solve all her problems or will it? Although I'll admit that Bronwen loves Jared and they're love is than just lust or a moment some of Bronwen's desires to belong to a family that appreciates her and loves her unconditionally drive her to Jared and his offer of marriage It's something that I've seen a number of times in my own friends lives a hope and desire that they will be better and have better lives by marrying someone And while I think this can be true my husband has helped me to be a much better person than I would be on my own it can't be denied still to put all your hopes for something better into someone else can only end in disappointment Bronwen's struggles to understand who she is and what she wants out of life are well written and understandable and I think the book could help any teenager to realize that young marriage isn't categorically wrong but who you are in high school college as a teen in your twenties changes rapidly so that often who you were one year and the things you wanted are much different later The themes of acceptance and unconditional love run throughout this book and I found Bronwen's relationship to her stepfather and even her mother to be profound and heartbreaking In this seemingly light YA novel so much was at play without being heavy or depressing I ended the book with the urge to hold my husband and thank him for who he was who we were when we were married and for how far we've come along I Now Pronounce You Someone Else was a lovely read enjoyable and thought provoking I can only hope that teens who read it will find solace and enjoyment in reading a book about a girl who can have a high moral ground without being a loser can make mistakes but find reparations and knows how to find herself and the things she wants without losing sight of her dreams and hopes

    I confess I was initially a wee bit disturbed by the concept of I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahan The book after all is about a girl who gets engaged while she’s still a senior in high school And this was not a post graduation “I’ll marry you if you turn me into a vampire” type of engagement Which I can forgive since I’m a sucker for those vampires Pun intended Just humans Just getting engagedBut the way McCahan has written it the premise totally and completely works It’s not creepy or weird — and the awkwardness of planning a wedding while getting homework done and submitting college applications is actually part of the story Any reservations you may have about the concept are all addressed within the context of the storyI Now Pronounce You Someone Else is a character study than anything else We follow 18 year old Bronwen Oliver as she struggles with a nasty break up falling in love with an older guy and trying to fit in with her mother step father and “Jesus like” older brother all of whom she swears she’s not actually related to Bronwen isn’t facing any extraordinary hardship at this moment in her life despite the past heartache of her father’s death But it’s her normalcy that makes her so relatable We’ve all been in her shoes at some point in our lives struggling to figure out who we are where we fit in the world and what it is we really want out of lifeAs an older reader it was frustrating at parts to watch Bronwen making the wrong decisions but it was eually refreshing to see her learn from those mistakes and grow from them There were parts when things finally started to make sense for Bronwen when I wanted to stand up and cheer and yell “Go girl” And I say this having made some pretty big mistakes in my own life — and having grown up enough that I can reflect on those mistakes and see how much they helped shape me into the person I am todayThe way McCahan writes I Now Pronounce You Someone Else we get to see Bronwen discover the same thing — her mistakes and how they helped shape her into a stronger personAnd while there is much that goes wrong in Bronwen’s life McCahan still manages to wrap things up with a happy — yet plausible — ending Which left me a happy camper Er a happy “reader” that is

    Bronwen Oliver is a 17 year old girl with an identity crisis She lives with her mother step father and sometimes her college aged brother in East Grand Rapids Michigan Her problem is that she doesn't feel that she fits in or belongs to anyone Why had her beloved father died at such a young age? Why couldn't her mother accept her for who she was? What happened to the plan her step father had to adopt her? All of these uestions lead her to conclude that she must have been switched at birthA resolution to this uandry just might be found in Jared Sondervan Bronwen bumps into the good looking college guy during the summer before his senior year of college Their attraction is immediate and it is soon apparent that Jared is the perfect boyfriend It doesn't hurt that he also comes from a perfect family In fact just the kind of family that Bronwen had always dreamed of So when Jared proposed on Bronwen's 18th birthday she knew that all her dreams were coming true The only problem is that the closer her wedding day gets the less sure Bronwen becomes Is she really ready for marriage or is she simply trading one identity crisis for another?I really liked this book Bronwen at 17 is a young woman who is a contrast in her own life On one hand she is very confident of the kind of girl she wants to be and things she wants to do She is willing to stand up for what she believes in regardless of who she has to stand up to On the other hand she is very insecure in her identity within herself and her family These are things that I think every girl goes through I appreciated the fact that this isn't just a teen romance While there is a lot of teen romance within the story the main theme is that it is important to find out who you are as a person and be happy with that Bronwen learns that a guy no matter how perfect he and his family are isn't necessarily the answer to a happy life I also like that the story doesn't end with a happy ever after wrapped up in a big bow ending Bronwen's life is still a work in progress but she is happy with the choices she has made And really isn't that what we're all hoping for?
