Mrs. Everything | Jennifer Weiner
Pickpick

I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Jo and Bethie. Over the years these two went through it all. Some bits had me feeling like I was on the roller coaster with them. Though I felt like it was a long one, Jennifer Weiner did not disappoint. Thank you #NetGalley for the #ARC

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ So much YESSSSS in one little book. Both my boys are teenagers now, but this had me laughing throughout.

🌟🌟🌟🌟 I just finished this one, and enjoyed the fact that there were many references to my home, Vancouver BC. I felt her thoughts were a bit all over the place. But she told her story well. My heart aches for what she's been through. I can't imagine...

TrishB My friend lost her 22 year old daughter last year. Do you think this might be a helpful book? Not putting you on the spot, I‘m constantly looking for ways to try and support her. It would have been her daughters birthday this weekend and it‘s tough 💔 6mo
seglitis @TrishB I think it's a decent book if she's ready to tackle it. This woman travelled the world and gave up her "home" as she grieved. She also lost her partner. So it was a lot to read. I enjoyed the Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles more, which was about losing a spouse. She tackled so many of the things that I felt. What to say when people ask. How it's ok to do YOU. Take the time. I think this is ok. But she's descriptive on how she lost her... 6mo
TrishB Thank you, I‘ll have a look at that other one too. 6mo

🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 YES. YES. YESSSS!!! I wish I'd read this year's ago. There aren't too many people who can tell this story. And what a story she told. So many of her thoughts rang true to me, and what I've been through. I just loved this one. I can't believe the things we have in common. So many yes' with this one! 💕💕

BkClubCare My neighbor bought an RV and drove with her kids from Massachusetts to California in a 6-8 (I forget how long she was on the road?) month journey. She ended up moving to MN to start a new adventure. I‘ll have to recommend this book to her. 6mo
seglitis @BkClubCare Do it!!! I took a road trip this past Summer. Saw all the places she wrote about. Which was cool. But we didn't do the RV thing. There were so many relatable things in this book. It was a good read. 6mo

I've had this on my TBR list for a while. I finally picked it up at Christmas. I've just decided the time to start this is now. Going through something like losing your spouse ain't easy. People always looked at me, in what I thought was judgement. I was just winging it... I'd always say "there isn't a book about this!" Well someone did write one. I'm looking forward to gaining some new perspective ?

This is my 3rd book by B. A. Paris. I also think it's going to be the last. Oddly similar to Gone Girl, but not nearly as well written. I'll be staying away from this author going forward 😕

Almost home after a two week road trip with my boys... Listened to all of the above as I drove 7000+ km's across Canada and the US. So thankful for Libby which kept me company, as my boys slept and played in their devices the whole way! 😂

Can't wait to watch Ready Player One when we get home. (we all listened to this one, in ONE day. We loved it!)

❤️❤️❤️ Wow! I just loved this one. I'm not sure how to describe how I'm feeling after finishing this one. It makes me both sad and angry at what transpired. But makes me happy to know his friends and family never gave up on him. I just can't fathom living a life like this, because of the color of my skin. Makes ya think. Powerful book. This one's gonna stay with me for a while...
