a book in review

Brief Summary:

Between unending housework and thankless efforts to appease a loutish husband and acid-tongue teens, Ginny Cooper’s to-do list never seems to get done. Her guilty pleasure—fantasizing about her husband’s demise—her weakness—the drive-thru at Arby’s. On the job as head librarian at the county’s obsolete library, tedium reigns. One afternoon Ginny innocently stumbles upon a dating website, where the rabbit hole awaits. 

Who is Ginny Cooper? She is every woman who knows the exact number of calories in a Snickers bar, every woman who has ever struggled with her weight. She is every woman who has grappled with the gray areas, every woman who has wanted to escape her own life. At times the reader will want to reach between the pages, shake her, and talk some sense into her. But Ginny will have to navigate her own road. And through it all, we root for her. 

Ginny’s childhood memories of her fading hometown provide a bittersweet backdrop for The To-Do List.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This book was a fun quick read. I could relate to Ginny throughout the book on different things. There were a few times though when I wanted to shake some sense into her. But like most women, she takes everything to heart and over thinks every last detail. This book is written very life like. I recommend this 3 star book to anyone who likes books that read like a friend is catching you up on a story, xo!
