Blog Tour - Letters to My Future Husband



About the book: Sophie doesn’t know what kind of man she’s looking for, so her father suggests she write letters to her future husband—and come to know him in the process. But Sophie soon learns her letters aren’t the most reliable key to her heart. This hilarious coming-of-age novel is a guaranteed laugh-out-loud read you’ll want to share with all your friends.

My review: When Sophie was a young girl she couldn't imagine marrying any man other than her father. To her he was perfect and she was furious that he was already married to her mother. Her father suggested that she write letters to her future husband so that she can grow to "know" him and also learn just what she wanted. He even provided her with a beautiful locking book to write those letters in. As she grew older, she started writing letters specifically to one of her older brother's friends and close neighbors, to her Hanno was perfect and could do no wrong. But she had to abruptly stop writing when her overbearing mother found the book and ruined it, reading all of her entries in the process. This book is about Sophie's coming of age, finding her future husband, and also about fixing relationships that need to be fixed, forgiving, forgetting and moving on.

I really enjoyed reading this book, it has a creative, fun plot that left me wanting to read more. I really thought that Sophie was a great character, there were several things about her that reminded me of myself. I LOVED the idea of writing letters to a future husband, what a great way to learn exactly what kind of person you should be out there looking for. I liked that Sophie was able to make her mistakes, but learn from them and move on with her life in spite of them. It's a cute romance that is clean, and fun. This is a fun book that you won't want to miss!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
