    2. I think I was expecting a romance here, and was surprised to find that this book had themes that ran along the lines of self-empowerment and fulfillment. The author tackles some very relevant points for women who easily fall under the trap of thinking that they are only complete if they have a boyfriend or a husband. I experienced this as I'm sure many other women have at one point or another. I appreciated the fact that the author pounded home the idea that a person needs to be whole, know who [...]

    3. My Favorite Lines:“Closing the door on his slightly disappointed face stirs a strange sensation of pride; I’m relieved to know I’m not a girl who is desperate enough to cling like a leech on flesh to the first person who makes them feel attractive and worthy once again.”“I want to be done with this agonizing competition to try to win a man’s heart. There’s so much pressure to be the prettier, the smartest, the funniest; pressure to look my best when all I really want is to show up [...]

    6. ☆☆☆☆I received this book for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review, I gave 'Public Displays of Convention' 4 stars and here is why:If you're accustomed to the works by great literary authors such as Jane Eyre - Then you will fall in love with this book, it has all the elements of the classics but with a twist of modernism that brings it in into the 21st century. It is an unconventional romance that has a bit of feminism which makes you want to scream such things as ' You go [...]

    9. I just finished this book, and I loved it. The characters are realistic a believable, and the situation is something that most people have faced in their lives.

    13. This is a story of coming into one's own and follows Anna-Kate as she learns about herself after a breakup with her boyfriend. I enjoyed this particular book because it really explores finding friendship in unexpected places, and deeper than that, people are not always who we think they are. "Public Displays of Convention" is also incredibly easy to get through, but Caplin attacks our perception of "that girl" throughout the story, and leaves us thinking long after it's over.

    14. This book was a fun and quick read. It was easy to see myself in the main character and relate to her feelings. It is hard to find books about characters who are in their early 20's/post-college and it is even harder to find books that encourage independent women. This book covers both of these very important qualities extremely well. I have been "someone else's chameleon" before and appreciate Sarahbeth capturing this coming of age story.
