A story about a woman who goes to Puerto Rico after suddenly being diagnosed with a terminal illness. She's running away from the problem instead of trying to treat and combat it. The ending was predictable, in my opinion.
I hated this in the beginning and almost bailed but I am glad I stuck with it. For such a heavy premise ( a woman‘s marriage implodes the same day she receives a cancer diagnosis) it is a surprisingly light read. There is not a lot of depth here but I became absorbed in the story and it was a quick read. Not life changing but worth the couple of hours I spent reading it.
The tagged book by Camille Pagan !! Truly underrated
I shoulda read this AFTER A Small Revolution, but what did I know?ð¤·ð»ââï¸
This is light, & can veer on schmaltzy.
But it won me over ð
It‘s short, it‘s fun, it‘s feel-good ~ more or less. A great book for a readathon, or travel, just for fun.
I enjoyed this light hearted(?) look at grief. Old grief, new grief all kinds of grief.. should of been a downer of a read but the author wrote it through the eyes of a awakened sarcastic mc and I liked her spunk immediately âï¸âï¸âï¸âï¸
This is on sale today for $5.99 on Amazon. #ordered
Most people seem to dislike this book. I thought it was a good choice for the #ArmchairAudies. Read my full review to find out why.
"It‘s permanence that distinguishes grief from other emotional pain. The unfixable nature of neverâthat‘s what makes it so terrible to bear."
This isn't a light and happy book, but it could of been worse! This is the second book I've read dealing with the idea of/or the actuality of dying. I think I will read something a bit more uplifting next!
This book gets mixed reviews but I liked it. And a big part of it is set on an island off Puerto Rico. Considering the theme (life, illness, death), it's a fairly lighthearted read. The MC is annoying at first but I thought she matured and grew through her experiences. #bookssetbythesea #septphotochallenge #somethinfgforsept

Listened to this at 1.5x speed cuz narrator was annoying. And main character was irritating. Not a lot of depth to the story, which doesn't usually bother me if there's likeable characters. Kept listening cuz I wanted to know how it would end. Epilogue was prob best part. Wonder how much better it would've been had narrator not sounded like she was forcing herself to like the story?ð¤
Starting the audiobook today since I'm stuck in traffic on my way home from work. Although I'm less than five minutes in and I do NOT enjoy the voice of the reader. Sounds like a robot.
