3.5 starsWanderlove = Forgetting about the bad things, focusing on the good, out with the old and in with the newBria has been having a tough time of it lately, having just broken up with her artistic boyfriend Toby, who she was meant to go on holiday with and now her best friends have also backed out of their trip, saying that Bria still needs time to heal. When Bria receives a pamphlet advertising a holiday, she sees this as an omen and decides to make a spur of the moment decision to take the trip, also mainly to spite Toby. However things don’t end up as Bria expected, she gets stuck with a tour group, with no one even her age, until she meets Starling and Rowan who encourage her to ditch her group and backpack with them instead. Who needs a detailed itinerary, when she can spend the rest of her time travelling with two of the most experienced travellers? Even though Rowan does seem a bit secretive and seems to have a bit of a shady past. Will Bria end up having the trip of her life and can both she and Rowan finally follow the Wanderlove philosophy?What I liked about Wanderlove;Kirsten Hubbard’s writing was beautiful, the way she captured the places they travelled to in her writing and described it with so much detail. I also liked the drawings which were incorporated into the story; both the descriptions and pictures made the story seem even more vivid and real. It seriously gave me the travel itch!I don’t think that there was anything which I disliked about Wanderlove just that it took me a while to get into and around this time I was going through a book slump. So my 3.5 stars is a reflection of how I felt about Wanderlove at the time of reading it, I’m sure that if I was to read it again, my rating would probably be much higher.
