a book in review

wake-up call

Amy Avanzino will be on tour September 16-23 with her novel Wake-Up Call
Sarah Winslow wakes up with a terrible hangover…and a kid in her boyfriend’s bed. She makes the horrifying discovery that, due to a head injury, it’s not a hangover. She’s got memory loss. Overnight, five years have disappeared, and she’s no longer the hard-living, fast-track, ad executive party girl she thinks she is. Now, she’s the unemployed, pudgy, married, stay-at-home-mom of three kids under five, including twins.
As she slowly pieces together the mystery of how her dreams and aspirations could have disintegrated so completely in five short years, she finds herself utterly failing to manage this life she can’t imagine choosing. When Sarah meets the man of her dreams, she realizes she’s got to make a choice: Does she follow her bliss and “do-over” her life? Or does the Sarah she’s forgotten hold the answers to how she got here…and how she can stay?

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This book is laugh out loud funny! It's so funny that you will fly through it because you'll just be laughing along. The premise of the story does ring true to the moments we all have when we think "how did this become my life?" It's a question everyone asks themselves, but the author Amy does a great job helping Sarah figure it out. Not only is this book funny, but it's heartwarming and intense at times. I can't wait to read more from Amy because she's going to be around for a long time, her story telling is amazing. I recommend this 5 star book as the perfect rainy day read, xo!
