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. 😳
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
What a lovely way to start Christmas Eve! Suzanne, thank you for the book which I cannot wait to read. I‘m afraid Hubby already taste tested the chocolate and he approves.
Again, thank you @maleficentbookdragon for putting this all together #jolabokaflod
Don‘t you hate when you have a book on your TBR for so long and you finally read it and it‘s amazing and you kick yourself for not reading it and having that experience so much sooner! This one gave me all the feels and loved how honest, funny, and real this felt. I‘m sure theirs flaws but I couldn‘t find any. All the stars! #doublespin for July @TheAromaofBooks
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.

I finally finally finished! Thank you for your patience!! This will be going in the mail to you this week for sure @shellleigh33 :) Between a pick and a so-so because I really enjoyed the writing style and would definitely want to read more from Center, but the story itself often left me feeling frustrated. I did like the message at the end, though!
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.
1. Olive's family in The Unhoneymooners

Great pick, @shellleigh33 ! I just finished this and really liked it. And it was fun seeing the previous readers‘ comments! @sharread I‘m going to pass it along to @BennettBookworm next to complete the circle. 💗 #LMPBC
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
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.
I‘m not a huge romance reader but I liked this story. It was a good, quick read. Looking forward to reading the rest of her books
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
Yep, Katherine Center did it again. She is officially, and despite myself, an auto buy author. I think I like her sister the best. Maybe we will get more of her story?
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.
🚨 CONTENT INCLUDES: depression, mention of suicide
I enjoyed this story about Margaret and her struggles to adjust to life after a plane crash left her unable to walk. Thanks @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks for sending it to me for my birthday last year.

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
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.
⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 although this book was predictable, I found it charming and engaging. was rooting for the main character. Good work of realistic fiction!
