My Oxford Year Reviews
It was a time for a book surprise. This is it.
I so wasn't prepared for this. And reading blurb I thought this was other kind of book. And boy was I wrong.......
This is so much more then just another collage coming of age book. Because I thought that it was exactly about that. Silly me.

Happy end but until when that kind of thing.I don't like that kind of surprises in a book (hide spoiler)]["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
Well, any book that makes me cry (on an airplane!) deserves 5 stars! What a great debut from audio book narrator Julia Whelan. An American in Oxford meets an interesting group of Oxonians and a dreamy Scott named Jamie. But all is not as it seems in this romantic comedy--there's great literature, a keen eye for detail and some thoughtful introspection. Can't wait to read what she writes next.
"Love. That’s my choice. "
If you read the blurb, then you know this is going to be a tear jerker at some point. How you might say? Jojo Moyes and Nicholas Sparks names are mentioned in it. That's enough, don't you think?
Yet, I must have missed it since I wasn't prepared.
What I can say about My Oxford Year without spoiling it for you? I will tell you that I loved it. Yes, at some point I was crying. It was inevitable. But, at the end of the day, I was pleasantly surprised by it.

With a strong opener, I was really into this novel. Then something happened & I’m left feeling a little “meh” about it all. I wish I could put my finger on it, but something overall just didn’t satisfy me the way I was hoping it to. This saddens me because I was really into it for the first half. Guess you can’t love everything you read!

Sometimes you just get a gut feeling about a book, and that's what happened when I came across My Oxford Year. After seeing the adorable cover and reading the blurb, the entire package was calling to me and screaming READ ME in neon lights. I'm usually hesitant with new/unfamiliar authors, but I instictively took the leap of faith in this case, and it paid o ...more
You know how our expectations are sometimes too high? Or, you expect something completely different and get something else and it's even better than what you were anticipating? It's the best feeling when a book does that. My Oxford Year surprised me, it totally blindsided me. Although I read the blurb it kind of slipped that it was compared to JoJo Moyes and Nicholas Sparks. Anyway, let me tell you about this sparkling little gem that is My Oxford Year.
When Ella arrives in Oxford, jetlagged and, ...more
