By the Book: A Novel of Prose and Cons by Amanda Sellet

Publication Date: May 12th, 2020

Goodreads Summary
As a devotee of classic novels, Mary Porter-Malcolm knows all about Mistakes That Have Been Made, especially by impressionable young women. So when a girl at her new high school nearly succumbs to the wiles of a notorious cad, Mary starts compiling the Scoundrel Survival Guide, a rundown of literary types to be avoided at all costs

Unfortunately, Mary is better at dishing out advice than taking it—and the number one bad boy on her list is terribly debonair. As her best intentions go up in flames, Mary discovers life doesn’t follow the same rules as fiction. If she wants a happy ending IRL, she’ll have to write it herself.


This book sounds adorable and hilarious. We have a book lover protagonist, a fun take on our favourite literary tropes, bad boys that hopefully, have a heart of gold, and a whole bunch of crazy shenanigans in between. What more could you want from a book?

What’s your most anticipated book?
