*I was provided a copy by the author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
This book was not what I was expecting. I lie. It was not what I was expecting when I requested it from NetGalley but it was what I was expecting after reading a few reviews. This book was sad and everything happened to Charlotte (and her family) but I really enjoyed it. I really liked Charlotte as a character. Yes she had a few problems character wise but she was just a 20 year-old girl ...more

This is not your every day happily ever after story. This book has some real depth and a lot of stuff I can relate to. Jennifer didn't hold back with this one and I thought it was amazing.
Charlotte is in school at another town trying to live her life. She sometimes meets guys and hopes it will work out, but they never do. One day she gets a call from her sister Emma that she is getting married. Charlotte reluctantly goes back home to where their mother is suffering from a ...more
Honestly, Charlotte disgusted me as she fantasized about her crippled sister's fiance and almost kissed him twice. Who does that? Ugh. I didn't really care for the book or characters, and while it may have been deep and emotional to some, I was indifferent to it all.
So I had read an excerpt from this book in the emails I had received months earlier and I thought going into it that I was reading a love story as most of the emails I get from authors ar ...more
Title: Paper Thin
Author: Jennifer Snyder
Thanks to NetGalley, Jennifer Snyder and Xpresso Book Tours for letting me receive a digital copy of this book.
I requested this book, thinking I had read one of Jennifer Snyder's books before, but I still can't tell. I had zero expectations, I wanted to be open-minded when it came to Paper Thin and so this book totally blew my mind.
Charlotte is a young college student who returns to her hometown, ...more
I don’t think it’s any secret that I adore Jennifer Snyder and her novels. Paper Thin did not disappoint. Jennifer’s writing talent and skill at working with raw emotion shine brightly in this new contemporary novel.
I have been very caught up in Succubus Kiss land…and while I could curl up and live in between Randal’s sheets forever…I needed a change of pace and some contemporary. I really love Jennifer’s Cold Creek series (#TeamCam) and Shattered Soul.
I really had ...more
Paper Thin is my first book by Jennifer Snyder. I was really intrigued by the blurb of this one, and I thought that I knew what I was in for. That wasn't the case here at all though, and this wasn't anything like what I had been expecting. Paper Thin was beautifully written, and I think that Jennifer Snyder is definitely talented. That being said though, this story was not for me. I want to warn potential readers here that this is not a tradi ...more
At first, I have to admit I didn't immediately connect with Charlotte. She seemed kind of desperate and a little selfish at first. It didn't take long though for me to discover that she was fairly self-aware, and when a character who has some glaring flaws can understand herself and know what her own faults are, it really helps to redeem them as a c ...more
Paper Thin deals not only with romantic feelings toward someone you shouldn't, but facing life head on after tragedy.
I liked Charlotte. Her reasoning for some things is questionable to me sometimes, but she felt very real. She struggled with emotions that I think most people do at some point in their lives. She tries her hardest to tamp down those feelings and be happy for her sister. Charlotte begins to know tragedy better th ...more
This book was one hella of an emotional journey. I cried, I sobbed and cursed. A lot. I was so angry at Jennifer that she made me feel so many emotions. I was like: WHY? My heart was breaking, shattering.
It was my first contemporary story by Jennifer and I have to say that her writing is as amazing as the one in her paranormal books. With descriptions so deep that will make you cry even though you are not an easy crier.
To be honest I hav ...more
I haven't delved into the world of YA for quite some time. I already knew this wouldn’t be the typical YA novel and that proved to be true. There was no Twilight style great loves, or fire from youthful passions. *Insert Flashbacks here*
Charlotte is a twenty something year old college student from Parish Cove. The consumate “little sister”, she’s been the one able to move away from her small town to experience college and the larger world. Never lucky in love, she g ...more
Coming back home was tough for Charlotte. She escaped a life that her small boring hometown was offering for the freedom of college life. The chance to be a teenager and final ...more
Paper Thin is book one in the Paper Thin series and is also the first book I have read by Author Jennifer Snyder. It is an NA novel that spoke of love and loss. Told in first person point of view, it initially started as a somewhat low-key book introducing the pivotal main and side characters that would shape and reshape the story. Charlotte, Emma, and Dawson, each greatly contributed ...more
I cried my eyes out so if you're in a mood for crying and being depressed this is THE BOOK you should read..
I'm kind of glad that this wasn't some boy meet girl story.
Charlotte has the baddest luck of all. Every single guy she had a crush on slipped right through her fingers.
Emma had the kindest heart and when tragedy strikes she just can't handle it and Charlotte sees a side of her sister she never saw.
This story is about love, family, holding on, grief, loss and fi ...more
