I have posted a couple notices of book giveaways these past few weeks, and I decided that I want in on the fun!! Meaning, I am going to host my very first giveaway!! GO ME!!!! Gotta tell ya, this is pretty exciting!!!
An ARC (Advanced Readers Copy - unedited) of Love the One You're With by Emily Giffin!!!
From Publishers Weekly:
A chance encounter with an old flame in Giffin's bittersweet, sometimes mawkish fourth novel causes Ellen Dempsey to consider anew what could have been. Shortly after marrying Andy, Ellen runs into Leo, her intense first love. Leo, a moody writer, has secretly preoccupied Ellen ever since he broke her heart, so after seeing him again, Ellen wonders if her perfect life is truly what she wants or simply what she was expected to want. This scenario is complicated by Ellen's past: the early death of her mother and subsequent disintegration of her family have left Ellen insecure and saddled with unresolved feelings of guilt. These feelings intensify when Andy's career takes the newlyweds from Ellen's beloved New York City to suburban Atlanta. As Ellen's feelings of inadequacy and resentment grow, her marriage begins to crumble. The novel is sometimes bogged down by characters so rooted in type that they, and the story line, can only move in the most obvious trajectory. However, Giffin's self-aware narrator and focus on troubled relationships will satisfy those looking for a light women's lit fix.
I loved this book and thought it was a great read. If you have read and liked anything else by Emily Giffin (Something Borrowed, Something Blue, Baby Proof), then you will most likely enjoy this book!!
