 13628184 Anatomy of a Single Girl (Anatomy #2) by Daria Snadowsky
Published January 8th 2013 by Delacorte Books for Young Readers

 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.

I won a copy of this book from the Goodreads First Reads Giveaway program. Many thanks to the publisher/author for giving me the chance to read and review this book from the Goodreads First Reads program.

Anatomy of a Single Girl reminded me of a more mature version of Judy Blume’s Forever, though the title is a little misleading since the main character, Dom, isn’t exactly a single girl. Still, I enjoyed the book overall. I didn’t love it, but it was entertaining and seemed realistic. The ending did seem a bit rushed.

There’s actually a book before this one but I didn’t realize this until I started reading this one. Thankfully this book described the events of the previous book well enough that I didn’t feel lost at all.

To be honest, though, the “relationship” in this book kind of bummed me out, but I also know that these types of relationships do occur. Older teens and new college students will probably be able to relate well to this.
