    One thought on “Consider Lily: A Novel”

    1. I don't really know what to say about this book. It was actually a pretty normal book and I lot of people may like it, but I found it dull. To me the story was boring, but I can tell some people might very much like this. I think I was in a reading slump of having just read a very good book, so that explains why I wasn't interested by this book. Once you read a great book every book that isn't just as good as the book you just read if not better suddenly doesn't seem good at all. Is this just me [...]

    2. Consider Lily does a great job of expressing Christian morals without being overly churchy, which I really appreciate. I actually am able to relate to the main character in the novel and find myself nodding several times throughout the book, and I continue to do that every time I reread it. This book teaches a lesson in staying true to yourself while being open to changing cirumstances around you, and changing any perceptions you might have about certain people, a lesson we can all benefit from. [...]

    3. After reading Emily Ever After, I was so afraid that I wasn't going to like Consider Lily. I LOVED this book.I felt the characters were well developed, and the story line was cuteeven if Lily was a little naive. I loved the quirky characters in the singles group. I loved that they made me feel for Lilye poor little rich girl. Very cute and easy read.

    4. True to my pattern of liking light-hearted books, I enjoyed this one immensely. Its a late-bloomer's coming of age story. I liked that it was someone in their twenties. I really identified with one of her "crazy girlfriend" and best friend scenarios and had me cracking up. A must-read girls!

    5. Um, was interesting but finished soft. I didn't get her having to apologize to everyone and make reparations when she was telling the truth. i did like the relationship that evolved with lilly and her mom.

    6. I am liking these good girl chick-lit reads but I liked The Book of Jane more than this one. I am trying Emily Ever After next.

    7. This was a sweet book. I loved the love story. It was clean, moral and a fun story to follow. I really liked it!

    8. Consider Lily by Anne Dayton and May Vanderbilt is set in beautiful San Francisco. Readers will recognize landmarks such as Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, and Russian Hill. Readers will also recognize the description of the main character's family department store, the chi-chi Traywick's. The authors could easily be describing Saks Fifth Avenue or Bloomingdale's.Lily Traywick is the only child of Joan and Roland Traywick, and while she works in the department store they own, she doesn't really [...]

    9. Consider Lily was one of the worst books I have read in a long time. It was so bad that I actually stopped in the middle. I found the plot slow and the characters insufferable. I thought Lily complained too much and either gave too much or too little credit to her family and friends. She'll go on and on about how someone is amazing and then go on and on some more about how another character is terrible and boring and blah blah blah. It drove me up the wall that Lily, whose parents own a departme [...]

    10. When I began this book I never thought I would end up giving it 5 stars. It is Christian chick-lit, but didn't force the churchy stuff. It was just a woman's personal experience dealing with faith, dating, career, and friendships. I thought the characters were extremely well developed , even the minor ones. I might explore other books by these authors (there are 2). Funny, engaging read!

    11. I really enjoy the writing and humor at times. I did not enjoy how Lily was treated at times by her family and friends. I thought the guy was an unstable jerk. And Lily was made out to be a weirdo for not wanting her boyfriend to essentially date some other chick! She was right and he never did acknowledge or really apologize for it. Just "lily needs to be more trusting". Eh. Not my favorite.

    12. Very realistic view of a single, upper twenties, Christian experience in terms of dating and dealing with the special characters involved in a church single's group. Witty and humorous, real life issues are dealt with realistically and for that I really enjoyed the book. The ending was a little too wrapped up and rushed but overall, I enjoyed the book a lot.

    13. I really enjoyed this Christian-Fiction book. It has all of the romance of any YA fiction, but it appeals to those who are active in the Christian community. Not EVERY teen book has to be about sex in order to be good!

    14. Good story, liked the characters for the most part. Didn't particularly like some of the actions by the main charcters. A full review can be read in my column for Examiner. tinyurl/24vnw3n

    15. This book was okay. I think I've read it before, so maybe that took away from the story, but I just couldn't get into it. I just felt like there wasn't anything pushing me to turn the next page.

    16. Almostbut not quite. I had my doubts in the beginning, almost got convinced it was ok in the middled they lost me by the end.

    17. This was a great book. I felt every emotion that Lily felt. I guess I felt that I could relate to her and some of her situations. She's a very likeable character.

    18. Cute book about the choices a girl makes when she feels she doesn't fit into her own family. It's what I would label as Christian chick lit. Also liked Emily Ever After by same author.
