Finally ready to welcome a man into her life, her plans are shattered when she receives a devastating phone call.

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
After reading Jennifer Snyder’s newest novel, Paper Thin, I find myself completely speechless – and in awe. This work is so different than anything she has ever written to date. It is so full of emotion – from happiness to heartache and everything in between. I just can’t even begin to process all the feels that I had while taking this journey with Charlotte. This whole story is just absolutely beautiful and I could totally relate to some of Charlotte's issues on a personal level. As the synopsi ...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

This book was depressing and boring and not what I expected. So the low rating is more because this book wasn't for me, rather than it being bad.
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.

When I started this book I was a bit skeptical as I have never read anything by this author before yet for some reason I get her emails...Her email said this book was free for a limited time on Amazon and that was 6/5/2017 so I have reason to believe its still free and if you want it, go get it! It's worth it :)

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

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.

A wonderful emotional journey

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.

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

It's hard to know what I can say in this review without revealing too much of the story. I'll start with characterization and work my way from there.

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

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

Copy gifted by the author in exchange for an honest review.

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.

Read as an ARC from NetGalley.

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

Wow! This was my first book by Jennifer and it was fantastic. Gut wrenching and emotional don't even cover all the words to describe this book. It was defiantly soul searching and so enrapturing that I finished it in one sitting. The story line was beautifully done and offered grace and endearment to all of the characters.

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

"I heard someone say once that you can't start the next chapter of your life if you keep rereading the last one."

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

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

I really liked this book. It showed the human side of Charlotte, who was not perfect and didn't have the perfect life. I felt She was much easier to relate to because she made mistakes and didn't always do what I expected she would. I cried several times and wasn't expecting some of the things that happened, which is always a good thing in my opinion. There is no happily ever after but with this story the ending fit just right. This is definitely a story I could re read over again.

This was a good book. I enjoyed the characters however there is a lot of angst in this book. Emotions are constantly running high and I did have to put down the kindle a time or two because i was getting completely hooked and i was going crazy hoping that this book would have a happily ever after even if it was not the ending i would have expected. I look forward to future books by Jennifer Snyder.
