Book Club: How Do You Know?

This week, I'm sharing:

Here's the synopsis:

What if you were approaching the end of your thirties and all of the life milestones you took for granted in your youth suddenly seemed out of reach?

On the eve of her thirty-ninth birthday, Maggie Piper doesn't look, act, or feel much different than she did at twenty-nine, but with her fortieth birthday speeding towards her like a freight train, she wonders if she should. The fear of a slowing metabolism, wrinkling of her skin, and the ticking of her biological clock leaves Maggie torn between a desire to settle down like most of her similarly-aged peers and concern that all is not perfect in her existing relationship. When a spontaneous request for a temporary "break" from her live-in boyfriend results in a "break-up," Maggie finds herself single once again and only twelve months from the big 4.0. In the profound yet bumpy year that follows, Maggie will learn, sometimes painfully, that life doesn't always happen on a schedule, there are no deadlines in love, and age really is just a number.

Here are my thoughts:

This is my second Meredith Schorr read- I reviewed her novel Blogger Girl here.  I loved Blogger Girl and How Do You Know was just as wonderful.  This was the perfect "curl up in the massage chair at the nail salon and get lost for a while" read.  Which I totally did- check my instagram for proof.

I loved Maggie as a character.  I felt like I was experiencing her confusing alongside her and admit I wasn't sure where I wanted her to end up- or with whom- for a while.  I got annoyed at Crazy Aunt Helen and absolutely loved Maggie's girlfriends.  Overall, this was a refreshing and enjoyable start to the new year.

What are you currently reading??

I'm currently reading "Wedding Night" by Sophie Kinsella for an online book club. It's a nice easy read so far.

P.S. Let me know if you'd be interested in receiving a copy of my book, "Riffs of Regret" in exchange for a review. :)
