Review: I Now Pronounce You Someone Else

Synopsis: Here Comes the Bride -- If She Can Pass Chemistry. Eighteen-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 good. Then 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?

Review: I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahan was a wonderfully delicious read about teen-marriage. Bronwen Oliver is a picky and lonely 17 year old girl. Her whole life, she felt like an outcast. She even made up a fake identity when she was little girl and years later, she's still getting mail labeled: Phoebe Lilywhite. Everyday Bronwen hopes that her other family the"Lilywhite's"  are out in the world waiting for her with their arms wide open. But all the changes when she meets.....Jared Sondervan. Jared in my opinion was the ideal boyfriend, hot, sweet, loving and most of all.....accepting. Anyways..... Jared is perfect for Bronwen. He becomes her everything, her life. She stops hanging out with her friends, family and falls head over heels in love. 

On her 18th Birthday, Jared proposes to her. Bronwen of course says yes. Everything is perfect. Bronwen is going to marry the most perfect man in the world and finally be happy. Until Jared wants to get married in August. But not just any August, August 2010 (which is in just a few months) Bronwen of course agrees. So the date is set. Time flys by quickly and before you know it, the wedding is coming up. Everything's good right? Of course not. Jared once again had a surprise. He wants to move to a different state. Will Bronwen do it? Is she going to leave her whole life, dreams, family and friends for her one true love?  This debut novel was fascinating. After I finished reading it, I was speechless and even found myself daydreaming about the story for weeks! This book is a wonderful story about self discovery and rebuilding relationships! I loved it!

Are you anti-Twilight?

You've all heard the hate filled words that are directed at Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, I know I have. Almost everyday at school I hear kids saying it's crap or garbage, it just makes me so sad when I hear that stuff :( I mean, to me Twilight was like pure awesomeness!!! I personally loved it! :) I mean I understand why people don't like it, because it's just not the right book for some, genres depend on the person......
Here is a anti-Twilight comic I found on the web(credit goes to the artist)   

Here is a non anti-Twilight image I found on the web(all credit goes to artist)

So yeah. That's all I wanted to show ya :) But here's a question for you.

Do you like or dislike the Twilight Saga, and why?
