2021 Most Anticipated - Happily Ever Afters

The next book on my 2021 most anticipated list has been described as Jane the Virgin meets To All The Boys I Loved Before. The main character certainly does some writing like Lara Jean, but she isn't writing letters.

Happily Ever Afters by Elise Bryant's main character writes romances! It sounds like an absolutely adorable rom-com.

The Goodreads synopsis makes it seem like a book that is guaranteed to make you smile. 
Jane the Virgin meets To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before in this charming debut romantic comedy filled with Black Girl Magic. Perfect for fans of Mary H. K. Choi and Nicola Yoon, with crossover appeal for readers of Jasmine Guillory and Talia Hibbert romances.

Sixteen-year-old Tessa Johnson has never felt like the protagonist in her own life. She’s rarely seen herself reflected in the pages of the romance novels she loves. The only place she’s a true leading lady is in her own writing—in the swoony love stories she shares only with Caroline, her best friend and #1 devoted reader.

When Tessa is accepted into the creative writing program of a prestigious art school, she’s excited to finally let her stories shine. But when she goes to her first workshop, the words are just...gone. Fortunately, Caroline has a solution: Tessa just needs to find some inspiration in a real-life love story of her own. And she’s ready with a list of romance novel-inspired steps to a happily ever after. Nico, the brooding artist who looks like he walked out of one of Tessa’s stories, is cast as the perfect Prince Charming.

But as Tessa checks off each item off Caroline’s list, she gets further and further away from herself. She risks losing everything she cares about—including the surprising bond she develops with sweet Sam, who lives across the street. She’s well on her way to having her own real-life love story, but is it the one she wants, after all? 
Here are the top three reasons I cannot wait to get my hands on this:

1. I love feel good reads and romances in particular. This could be exactly what the winter blahs calls for.

2. The main character is a writer which is always interesting and could provide some great story within a story elements to this plot.

3. I am a sucker for the main character thinking she knows what type of partner they want only to discover that the person who has been right in front of them is a better match. It sounds like this is very much the case in this one as she has two choices - boy across the street or brooding artist. 

Happily Ever Afters releases January 5, 2021. It sounds like it'll be a perfect book to help chase away those winters blues so preorder with those holiday gift cards.
