Soooooo…. Has this ever happened to you? I had heard good things about this book, liked something else by the author, and went ahead and bought it for myself for my birthday.

I went to start it tonight and I‘m already finished. How? BECAUSE I REALIZED I ALREADY READ IT. I must have “heard good things about it” from myself when I read it 2 years ago for a #lmpbc group! Wow. That‘s embarrassing. 😳

LiteraryinLawrence @shellleigh33 @BennettBookworm Guess that one really left an impression, huh? 😋 But I liked it so much and now I remember all about it! 3mo

My goodness, what a riveting book. It stopped me in my tracks, made me need to keep reading to find out what would happen in the aftermath of a tragic accident and the characters coming to terms with their new reality. Thoughtful and honest, this book by Katherine Center is my first but won‘t be my last. #bookspinbingo #awesomeapril @TheAromaofBooks @Andrew65

These stickers drive me crazy on the cover but how could I refuse this $3.99 gem. This book got me from the very beginning. It is suspense, it is sad, it is love, it is heartbreak, it is trust, it is starting over, it is strength, it is beautiful. Definitely recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book follows a young girl after a devastating plane crash, her recovery, her relationships, and her progress in her own understanding of herself. I really enjoyed this book (although there were some unrealistic plot turns) and didn‘t want to stop reading. Overall good read with likable characters and engaging plot line.

It's been a long time since I started a book and within a few pages was hooked. The first half was a 5 star can't-put-it-down gotta-see-what-happens type of experience. Something happened for me about halfway through, and it wasn't quite as good for some reason. So in the end, I gave it 4 stars.
A really good inspiring story with some great characters. (Kitty is a favorite!)

I didn‘t know what this book was about, and found it had the right balance of levity amidst deeply difficult circumstances. I won‘t say tragedy because that seems to shortchange the book‘s main point and cheapen the struggles of the characters. It was an unexpectedly uplifting book with a message of hope and finding joy in acts for others.

I liked this contemporary romance as much as her book Things You Save in a Fire. She does work place romances well. There was a mood shift after the cabin scene that made it a bit more depressing. There is a happy ending though like in all romances.

5 stars. Emotionally driven novel about family, love, hope, persistence and love. I loved the sister Kit, so many reminders of my own sister. I love those books that make you look inward at your own life too. Making you think about everything important to you. Triggers, accident, trauma, depression. #GROUPO #LMPBC

Okay #GroupO #LMPBC I‘m about to start this book today. Is everyone okay with me using red as my markup color? What colors did everyone else decide on?

sharread Yes that's fine with me. 2y
shellleigh33 What color are you gonna use @sharread 2y
sharread Blue if someone's else is using it I could go purple 😁 2y
See All 11 Comments
shellleigh33 Blue sounds good @sharread I haven‘t heard anyone comment a color yet. I just want to make sure we just don‘t all pick the same colors. It is easier to keep up with everyone‘s comments when we use a different color 2y
BennettBookworm Totes! What I‘ve done in the past is just choose a color that nobody wrote in yet for that given book, but might be different color for another book. So I can be any color! 2y
shellleigh33 That‘s a cool idea @BennettBookworm. Do you stay with the same color throughout the book and write final thoughts in it? 2y
BennettBookworm Yes definitely staying with the same color the whole book. I also like to write a little “hello” intro in the cover or first logical blank page, and then at the end final thoughts like you said ☺️ 2y
LiteraryinLawrence I agree with everything @BennettBookworm said actually. I have a bunch of different colored pens so I can be whatever. If people want to pick ahead of time that‘s fine with me, or I‘ll pick an unused one when I get each book. Also, not sure you guys know this but she and I are actually sisters! We like to be in the same book groups when possible even though we live in different states. 😋 @shellleigh33 @sharread 2y
shellleigh33 I did not know that @LiteraryinLititz and @BennettBookworm. That is so cool, I ❤️ it!!! I wish my sister was a reader. My mom is but we don‘t have the same taste and I haven‘t convinced her to join Litsy yet 😭😭 2y
BennettBookworm @shellleigh33 maybe some day!!! 2y
LiteraryinLawrence So it sounds like @shellleigh33 will be red and @sharread will be blue. That sounds awesome! I‘ll be purple! 2y

I absolutely loved this book!!! The first KC book I read was "Things you save in a Fire" and I wasn't a fan of it, but this book was fantastic! I loved the conflict between Maggie. her sister and their mother. KC really knows how to mix and balance a lighthearted romance with difficult personal struggles and heated family drama. I would highly recommend this one for anyone who is looking for a romance with depth.

Margaret ‘adores‘ her fiancé, has a great job and a bright future. But when sh*t hits the fan, (though she relents to his idea for an #adventurous outing), and she winds up in a hospital; her fiancé ‘s true colors are exposed (not to mention her career‘s gone and her life is significantly altered). She finds out how little she means to him ? and how selfish he can be. Fake relationship... #fauxmance #tropesinaugust #aboutaugust @Klou

I‘ve been excited to read this one, and it didn‘t let me down. This novel is a mixture of a sweet love story while overcoming the obstacles entailed with a tragic accident. Full of humor, hope, and words of wisdom, “How to Walk Away” is a quick yet moving read.

I‘ve seen people comparing this to Me Before You but I‘ve not read that or watched the movie so... I can‘t attest to that at all. Maybe that‘s good. I have a fresh view on this one.

I enjoyed it. I didn‘t enjoy the narrators terrible Scottish accent but I got used to it. There were a lot of layers to the book which I enjoyed. I like this author but it‘s almost surprising for me because she‘s subtle and I‘m not subtle haha. It was a good listen.

I listened to this on Audible. Once I got past the horrible attempt at the Scottish accent, I enjoyed the story. I couldn‘t really relate to it since I‘ve never been in nor survived a plane crash, but there was a story of hope that was lost and then regained through love. I felt the epilogue was rushed and could‘ve made for a decent sequel. Book 8 of 2020

JoyNorstrom Oh gosh, that accent 😳😳😳. 100% agree. Audio would have been vastly improved if the reader hadn‘t attempted the accent. 2y

I don't know how I would feel or react if the life I thought I had was ripped away by a tragic accident. Margaret had to learn “how to walk away“ in every sense. There were times she was bitter, angry, heartbroken, hurt, depressed, anxious. I felt all those emotions with her.
