Fitting to kick off 2013 with an absolutely fantastic book by the lovely Meredith Schorr. Jane Frank is tired of flaky guys that don't know how to handle relationships. So she decides to date like a man - love 'em and leave 'em. One little problem, though. Jane doesn't handle it very well. She alienates her family, her best friend, the people that are trying to be in her corner rooting for her and helping her. Jane is at time self absorbed, at times downright annoying, but she is always complete [...]
Meredith Schorr is now on tour with CLP Blog Tours and A State of Jane. Meredith quickly made it on my Authors to Watch list, and is someone I can even credit with being a “virtual” friend. I was very much looking forward to reading A State of Jane and sure enough – it did not disappoint! Our MC is Jane Frank, someone I easily connected with right off the bat. It helps we are around the same age (twenties) and that I could understand easily what Jane was going through in her dating life. S [...]
I went to college with this author and we once shared an apartment, however this does not make me biased! She has a true gift for developing real, memorable characters and her story lines are engaging and ultimately create an enjoyable reading experience!
DOES WHAT IT SAYS ON THE TIN - GREAT CHICKLIT!I was given an Advance Review Copy of this book by the author and in exchange I am happy to offer an honest review.I had loved the cover and the dippiness it supposed about the protagonist straight from the off.I read this book over a few days and the highest accolade I can give it is that I put down my Marian Keyes' hardback in favour of reading this on Kindle.Jane having split up with her previous partner, Bob, over a year ago, is now ready to star [...]
Jane Frank is such a fascinating character to follow. Her naivety at the beginning of the novel is absolutely astounding - a great setup for what's to come. I just have to say, I spent nearly five years navigating the dating scene as a single gal in NYC (except for those months I dated the Greek god, who tragically had to go back home (sigh)) and I knew Jane's optimism and confidence that she'd soon find The One was delusional. Seriously. Meredith Schorr did such an amazing job in creating these [...]
A State of Jane takes me back to my days of dating in NYC. I laughed out loud as I was able to relate to so many of Jane's experiences. she is a fascinating, loveable character that reminds me of myself in a way. Never has a book been so relatable and so entertaining. I'm sure many women can relate to Jane and the woes of meeting Mr Right when the time is right. I know what I'll be getting everyone for Christmas this yearMarried. Single. Dating. This book is for all to enjoy!! you've done it aga [...]
Meredith Schorr has done it again, what a funny book! The dates that Jane went on bless her heart! I found myself laughing outloud several times! I can't wait to read her next book!
I finished reading A State of Jane by Meredith Schorr in the middle of the night while my five-year-old was sick with fever. After getting him back to sleep, I crawled under the covers with him, set the lighting on my Kindle to low and read. If he woke and needed me, I was by his side. Trust me, if I wasn’t enjoying the book, I would have spent that time sleeping in preparation for what was shaping up to be a weekend with a sick child. But I was enjoying the book, very much, and if my sweet li [...]

After a year-long sabbatical, she’s ready to jump back into the dating pool and she’s confident she won’t ha [...]

Meet Jane Frank. It’s been a year since her last (and only) long term relationship, and with reality looming large in the form of the LSAT, Jane decides it’s been far too long since she’s been kissed and that she’s ready to meet the man of her dreams. Meredith Schorr’s A State of Jane takes us through Jane’s adventures in dating. As she grows more frustrated with the online dating scene and the way men tend to flake out for no reason, Jane decides to take her friend Andrew’s advice [...]
Meredith Schorr's entertaining, hand-wringing, nail-biting, rollicking new novel was a terrific story that most young single women can relate to but could not be so forthright telling. That's part of what made A STATE OF JANE engrossing--Jane Frank bares all. It's as if the reader is perched right over her shoulder, going on every date or more accurately at times hookup. Jane's life becomes particularly compelling once she secedes from her only serious relationship to brave being single for the [...]
I loved Meredith Schorr's Just Friends With Benefits because it reminded me so vividly of a particular time in my life and a girl I used to be. A State of Jane had the same amazing quality! Meredith has such a great knack for telling a story, I can literally taste the apple martinis as I read. I always feel like I'm a personal friend of the protagonist, along for the ride, experiencing hilarious and also poignant adventures in NYC singlehood as I fly through her books. Specifically here, Jane Fr [...]
Just Friends With Benefits, Meredith Schorr's first novel, is one of my favorites, and I was so excited to read A State of Jane. Meredith Schorr did it again! She created a flawed, real and relatable main character whose emotional journey had me laughing and cringing in sympathy. The supporting cast of characters are fantastic, and I cannot wait to read more from this incredible author. A must read!
I really enjoyed this book, it was so true to life, how its difficult to pursue relationships in the real world, while traversing the do's and do not's. I highly recommend this!
I designed the cover for this book, and boy am I proud! Jane’s journey into the single world is funny and endearing. Jane learns what it all means.
I read this book in one sitting! This book is about the whirlwind year of Jane as she goes through several phases of finding out what she wants from lifetamorphosis!
Really great. Classic chicklit formula but read very refresh and new.
Most romantic stories are about a girl meeting a boy, falling in love and ending happily ever after. Or, if it's a chick lit novel, it's more like happily for now. Meredith Schorr's A State of Jane might seem like one of those stories at first, but it is much more than that.One year to the day after breaking up with her high school sweetheart, a man she dated for nine years, Jane Frank decides she is ready to re-enter the dating world. Armed with an online dating profile, and ready to be matched [...]
Meredith Schorr's, A State of Jane, is a hilariously funny Chick Lit novel that I loved from beginning to end. I must confess that I have been on a Chick Lit bender lately, I can't seem to get enough of the lighthearted reads. I have found that when my life gets crazy insane, I tend to gravitate towards various Chick Lit novels to destress. And let me tell you, the novels I have been reading the last few months are doing the trick! Meredith Schorr's, A State of Jane, was no different- I picked i [...]
Jane Frank is a 26 year old looking for love in New York City. She recently got out of a 9 year relationship with her high school sweetheart, with whom she was no longer in love. Having had only one boyfriend her whole life (and an awesome one at that), Jane is shocked and dismayed upon entering the dating scene and realizing that men can be jerks and love is hard to find. Along with her many disastrous dates, Jane is dealing with preparations for the LSAT and law school, all of which is causing [...]
WISE AND WITTY, THIS IS A WONDERFUL READ!Tired of the same-old same-old tiresome tedious read when it comes to the world of chick-lit? Looking for something an intelligent woman can wrap her arms and brain around? Your search is over, for A STATE OF JANE delivers on every count. The novel, told exclusively from the heroine Jane’s point of view, takes the reader along for a romp through the streets (and sometimes the bedrooms) of Manhattan as Jane searches for true love. It’s not an easy jour [...]
Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. It was a fairly quick chick lit read that I read every free chance I had. I finished this book in just over a day. The main character, Jane, reminded me of most twenty-something women who are still single. They want to find "the one" and will look at every date as the potential "one". We have all done that, we have all waited for "the one" to appear. That made her very relatable for this readerd probably for most readers. Sometimes, I found Jane to b [...]
Jane was a hilariously entertaining main character. I have to admit that it took me awhile to warm up to her simply because she was being a bit of a twit. But I really cared about her and desperately wanted things to work out for her. Then I realized that it was not the first time I had been conflicted about a heroine like this. A State of Jane has a very similar feel to the novels by Sophie Kinsella - there are well meaning (if irritating) characters, an entertaining storyline, and a lovely mix [...]
In Meredith Schorr's A STATE OF JANE, Jane Alexis Frank's perfect "Ann Taylored" life has come to a screeching halt and it's going to go from bad to worse before getting any better. After breaking up with her only boyfriend, Bob, 26-year old Jane has "healed" after a one-year self-imposed date free hiatus and now she's ready to get back into the game! She's cynical about the New York City dating landscape, but pretty good at putting a positive spin on things!"I just want to be settled in a commi [...]
Continuing my love for Meredith Schorr, I started on A State of Jane immediately after finishing Blogger Girl. I'd heard many grumblings, and heard about some not-so-nice reviews and I had to read this book - because I loved Blogger Girl and because I just had to see what all the fuss was about.I was not disappointed and I have to say that A State of Jane is one of my favorite books! I love that Jane is so much fun. That she is willing - no matter how many times she was trampled on - to get up, [...]

Jane’s adventures through dating start with online dating then head to making face to face contact. When Jane takes her co-worker, Andrew’s, advice towards dating the story takes off.I never went to the extremes of antics Jane did to find Mr. Right and really thought Jane took it too far. “Nail ‘Em and Leave ‘Em” is a very selfish slutt [...]
Let me tell you about Jane. She's kind of a screw up, a little clueless, and more than a bit self-centered. But that's exactly why I loved her! In fact, Jane reminded me so much of myself in my twenties that it was almost eerie! Well, let's just say I could easily relate to her. Not only did I experience many of the same dating experiences as Jane, I also struggled with studying for the LSAT (I actually got into law school, but decided I didn't need MORE student debt), and went through a period [...]
