What Comes Next and How to Like It: A Memoir
Abigail Thomas

Kept me up all night

— feeling amazing
Outside The Lines - Beth Rhodes

I hate when I do this to myself.  Only a few chapters, I think. Next thing you know, it's morning and I cannot be a fully functioning adult. Because--book.


I had pre-purchased Outside the Lines and noticed as I was going to bed that it downloaded at midnight. I thought I'd read a few chapters before bed. BIG MISTAKE. There was never a good place to stop reading! My heart just hurt for these characters and at times I was tempted to jump ahead to see how they made it work, because there was too much pain to wade through before they got there. For me, David and Maria w well-drawn and I totally understood what was keeping them apart emotionally.

On the outside, this is a secret baby book, but the baby isn't secret for long. As I read through it, I thought it was more of a Beauty and the Beast story, because while the hero is fabulous looking, he's a beast inside, and it takes a special, patient, loving woman to tame what ails him. A truly fabulous read (and worth losing sleep over).
