Georgie, All Along
Georgie, All Along | Kate Clayborn
From Kate Clayborn, the author Jasmine Guillory describes as emotional and real comes a new novel echoing with timely questions about love, friendship, career, and family. Wise and witty, threaded through with a complex, emotionally fulfilling modern love story, this is a book that readers will immediately identify with and take to heart. In this heartfelt tale of one womans quest to reinvent herself, the acclaimed author of Love Lettering and Love at First delivers a poignant, witty reflection on how the hopes, dreams, and stories from our past shape our future . . . Longtime personal assistant Georgie Mulcahy has made a career out of putting others before herself. When an unexpected upheaval sends her away from her hectic job in L.A. and back to her hometown, Georgie must confront an uncomfortable truth: her own wants and needs have always been a disconcertingly blank page. But then Georgie comes across a forgotten artifacta friendfic diary she wrote as a teenager, filled with possibilities she once imagined. To an overwhelmed Georgie, the diarys simple, small-scale ideas are a lifelinea guidebook for getting started on a new path. Georgies plans hit a snag when she comes face to face with an unexpected roommateLevi Fanning, onetime town troublemaker and current town hermit. But this quiet, grouchy man is more than just his reputation, and he offers to help Georgie with her quest. As the two make their way through her wishlist, Georgie begins to realize that what she truly wants might not be in the pages of her diary after all, but right by her sideif only they can both find a way to let go of the pasts that hold them back. Honest and deeply emotional, Georgie, All Along is a smart, tender must-read for everyone whos ever wondered about the life that got away . . . Praise for Kate Clayborn A novel of lush complexity, one bursting with humor, a tender melancholy, and meditations on love, friendship, and life. Entertainment Weekly, A+ for Love Lettering Luminously beautiful . . . heartbreaking, wise, and wonderful. Ruby Lang, author of PlayingHouse

A week after finishing this (and grieving leaving vacation!), the impact of this book has faded. BUT it was a great vacation read. The characters felt authentic and the premise was fun. Putting Clayton‘s other books on my TBR now!

Not what I expected from blurb. Love messy and expansive Georgia. Also Levi and his trauma from childhood. Both I see within my relationship. He‘s so sweet to her, so vulnerable, that still gets him in trouble. Georgia is so soft, and bubbly. Pretty steamy chapter, though I‘m not one for the sex this early in a relationship, they got it working out. Including understanding each other, talking like adults. I liked the ending. Georgias got it #ouabc

There was a lot I really enjoyed about this small town romance between an ex-Hollywood personal assistant who doesn‘t know what she wants and a bad boy turned small business owner still struggling with his old reputation. The spice was fantastic, for one. But the last hour took me forever to read, I was just bored by that point and knew how it would end.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

With the most lovable characters and a ton of heart, this romance is completely swoon-worthy! It‘s comforting like a strawberry milkshake, hopeful like a notebook full of dreams, radiant like a moonbeam.

For some reason, my brain immediately pictured Zoey Deutch as Georgie, but I‘m open to casting suggestions for who would play Levi in the movie! 😂 #BOTM

I loved this one!

Georgie and her friend Bel made a notebook when they were kids containing all kinds of things that they wanted to accomplish before high school.

When Georgie moves back home to help Bel prepare for the birth of her child, she decides to do as many of the things in the notebook that she can in hopes of gaining some clarity.

Fun, sassy, and kind of like a hot Hallmark movie. This was a fun ride 😄

#reinvention #confrontingthepass
A wonderful palate cleanser. After losing a successful job, Georgie goes home to her eccentric parents & their unconditional love. Georgie desperately wants to understand the what & why of her own wants & needs that have been a lifelong “blank page.” At times funny, with heartwarming characters of depth.Themes of self acceptance,letting go of the past,friendship, forgiveness & love.

I blew through this, which isn‘t surprising with still mourning the death of one puppy #Jethro. And #Ringo having just gone under the knife for his neuter, cone of shame in photo, I had time.

This was entertaining, the characters struggles were relatable. Quick and easy read 3⭐️ #botm

Kate Clayborn is absolutely one of my favourite romance writers! Every book she writes, I love and Georgie All Along is no different. Her books, no matter what the premise, always contain the perfect balance of warmth and humour, with that bit of heat.

Normally, I steer clear of romance books, but since this was an ARC, I gave it a try. I‘m glad I did. Georgie is a strong female character looking to reinvent herself after losing her PA job with a Hollywood director. Levi, the love interest, isn‘t threatened by Georgie‘s strength. Georgie, in fact, saves Levi. There are some graphic sex scenes-so if that isn‘t something you like (I don‘t) here‘s your warning. 5/5 🌟

Georgie, All Along | Kate Clayborn

Would this count for “messy bun,“ do you think?

I really loved this by the end, because it had so much warmth and understanding about human foibles, and carved a happy ending out of a pretty complicated situation. I had niggles all through though, because though I love Levi's complex POV and found it very insightful, the way he sees Georgie just never felt like it matched with who she is from her own POV. Might just be a me problem.

willaful I *knew* I was doing a challenge with the prompt “read a book with a yellow cover“ but I forgot to write down the title of it. 🤦🏻‍♀️ It was #TBRtarot ! @CBee 2mo

Whew, now you KNOW I've been distracted when everything about #BOTM completely slipped my mind. Hadn't given a single thought to sleuthing for spoilers or anything 😱

BUT I'm pretty excited about this box! Something about the description for Georgie just speaks to my soul. And since I already ordered the new Jojo Moyes through Authentic Books, it made it easy to snatch up the other two that look like solid, escapism reads (which is what I need)❤️

marleed I would have gone with The Shards, as well, but forgot to look at the new add-ons before I placed my order. 2mo

This is the first time I have read this author and I quite enjoyed the book. I admit at times I wished for more dialogue and action and less inner thought, but still found all the characters delightful (even the dog) and I loved Georgie's parents. There was also a surprising depth to the story as Georgie comes to terms with who she is and what she wants out of life that would make this a suitable (albeit lighter) book club choice. 4/5 stars

I loved everything about this book - the characters, plot, setting, humor, and even the cover. This will most likely be my favorite read of November and in my top 10 for 2022. Georgie is lovely, but Levi has my heart. I love how these two are together. Out 1/31/23

I‘ve always loved Clayborn‘s books, some more than others, and this one fell somewhere in the middle. Georgie is a 28 yo who lost her job as a personal assistant to a Hollywood director (who retired) and has moved back home to VA to figure out her next step in life. While helping her pregnant best friend Bel clean out a room, she discovers a junior high notebook she made detailing what she was looking forward to in high school and how her life 🔻

robinb might play out. As she is facing a crisis of finding what she wants out of her life (rather than what others want from her) she uses the notebook to help guide her toward something new in life. Levi, as a troublemaker and black sheep of a prominent family, was kicked out by his father. At 32 he has turned his life around…business owner, homeowner and keeping a low profile. Can these two help each other 🔻 4mo
robinb see more potential and value in their lives and futures? I liked the humor in this one, I liked Hank the dog, I liked most of the secondary characters, and I especially loved the nurturing and supportive nature of Georgie‘s and Bel‘s friendship. But somehow the Georgie/Levi story did not grab me like the mains in the author‘s previous books. I‘m not sure why. Partly I felt they were both immature for their ages 🔻 4mo
robinb in dealing with their issues. Georgie, while exuberant, could also be annoying at times with it, and I occasionally wanted to shake Levi for his passiveness. But there were tender moments which I‘ve come to expect in her books, and she imagines those especially well. All-in-all, a good story with a sweet, healing romance. 4/5⭐️ #coverlove 4mo

Release date: Jan 23, 2023. Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for an advance digital copy. If you like Emily Henry, this will be your type of romance. Humor and romance bump up against realistic life issues. The side characters are wonderful in their own right and aren‘t just there to advance the plot. Check it out.

This latest from Kate Clayborn was a delight! I loved Georgie and Levi and their sweet, tender and messy relationship. With multiple moments that made me laugh out loud and even more that made me smile, this love story is layered, thoughtful, and real. Clayborn has become a favorite author of mine because she always makes me laugh, swoon, and think. Releases in January, 2023, highly recommend! #Bookspin #ARC @TheAromaofBooks

My first official post to get things rolling here.
I stayed up until 5am last week finishing this grumpy-sunshine, feels-filled, finding-yourself delight, and I‘ve decided Kate Clayborn can do no wrong.

She‘s nailed down her own brand of rhythm and pacing, with a balanced blend of humor and heart.

Her descriptive writing, her lovably flawed characters, and relatable storytelling always combine for a delicious treat from start to finish. 🤍
