In Chrissie Peria's All's Fair in Blog and War, we meet Five Cuevas, a virtual assistant by night and travel blogger the rest of the time, reading an email from the Macau Tourism Board inviting her for an all-expense paid trip to Macau. It was something I would joyfully jump into, and Five does the same thing. It was exciting, until she meets Jesse Ruiz, the photoblogger who gets in her way and on her nerves. She's determined not to let him ruin her trip, but it's proving just a bit hard when she was partnered with him for the rest of the trip.
Okay, this is fun. So much fun. I love books with blogging, regardless of whatever kind of blogging that is. I love Five's voice, and her passion for traveling and writing about it. I love the entire set-up and how she and Jesse met, and how their relationship grew in the story. It was a short trip, but it was believable, and reading the story made me want to go to Macau, or at least, find myself some egg tarts! There were so many lines in the book that made me smile, and it's no surprise that I breezed through it because I just wanted to keep on reading to know what happens to them in the end.
Granted, the story could be longer, and there could have been more tension, but for a quick and light read, All's Fair in Blog and War really works. It's the kind you'd want to read on a trip, or the kind you'd recommend to a friend who's going on a trip (I did that), or the kind you'd recommend to a friend who's looking for a light read (I also did this). I was happy with the ending, and how they got to the ending, especially for a social media/blogging junkie like me. :P If you're a blogger, a traveler or a reader (or, maybe even all) who is looking for a light and sweet contemporary romance fix, then All's Fair in Blog and War is a book for you. :)
Find out in this quick and fun read that all those involved in the blogging and travel writing world should read and remember readers "All's Fair in Blog and War".
This was super short and cute. The travel blogging thing made me nostalgic with an intense need to travel the world. I also appreciated how much insight into Macau that we got to see as I have previously never known much about it. I felt like we got vivid details of the food the ate, the places they saw, little streets to keep in mind, even famous sayings that are used there. It was all very entertaining.
I also really loved the titles of each chapter, the banter between characters about things like their blog posts and usage of camera. It spoke so much about our generation and it made it all the more realistic for me.
I had a slight problem with the way things felt like they were a little bit rushed. From Five and Jesse kissing to the out-of-nowhere betrayal and how easily things were fixed. I felt like it could have been stretched a little bit. Especially because Jesse and Five felt like they happened out of nowhere. I also slightly felt annoyed with how judgmental Five was at some points, especially her comments about Megh.
