Review: Anatomy of a Single Girl (Anatomy #2) by Daria Snadowsky

     Anatomy of a Single Girl (Anatomy #2)


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.

Anatomy of a Single Girl is the sequel to Anatomy of a Boyfriend. Daria Snadowsky takes a serious subject and adds a twist of humor to it, keeping the responsible outlook on sex forefront. I loved to see every teenager read this novel. I'm sure if teens did, the backseat of a car would be seen in a different light. I also wish girls would ask guys to do what Dominique did when faced with the decision to have sex with a guy.

Dominique (Dom) is coming home for summer vacation after her first year in college. She’s still not over her break up with Wes. For Dom, when she fell in love with Wes, it was supposed to be forever. But this summer, Dom is going to learn about love, passion, and friendship. And a gorgeous guy named Guy is going to be the one who helps Dom see she’s not as black and white as she thought she was. That sometimes life is just gray.

Anatomy of a Single Girl is a wonderful, heart felt story about Dom's sexual relationships, but it's also about her relationship with her parents, Amy her girlfriend, and the three guys in her life: Wes, the guy she fell in love with that broke her heart. Guy, who teaches her passion. And Calvin, who teaches her about friendship, and that hugs are really underrated. But most of all, she teaches herself that being a single girl is not being an inadequate person. That being single is okay!

I highly recommend Anatomy of a Single Girl as an awesome read for teen girls as well as teen boys, but it's not just for the teens. Everyone will enjoy and fall in love with Dom's story.

 My favorite quotes:

“Can you write back for me ‘Sweet dreams’?”
Amy smirks naughtily. “Sure…but can I leave out the first s and an e?”
“Huh?” I picture it in my mind: Wet dreams.

The moment we got together still ranks as the most magical in my life, though I should’ve taken the Porta Potti as a sign of where things would end up.

Amy then demands “a visual.” Guy has already friended me on Facebook, so I pull up his profile photo on my phone.
“Holy hotness! Break me off a piece of that!”

The only thing that replicates it is the vibrator I bought when he started camp. It’s much better than the wand massager I used before. It’s still not as fun as actually being with him—“
“Thank you for those lovely images.”
