read from: didn't finish. don't think i even made it to the 100th page
rating: 1) didn't care for it 2) liked it 3) LOVED IT


i liked the voice in this book (from Beth's point of view). i think its been a while for me, too that I've read something like this where I'm in love with the voice. 
but as much as i liked it, it wasn't enough to keep me going. 
i wasn't crazy about picking it up or even about continuing when i would read it. 
and i have sooo many other books i want to read that i CAN'T justify trying to force myself with this.

what i did get from this is: SPOILERS!!!!! 

Beth and Matt decide to move to DC to help with the Obama campaign. 
i feel like she was the one to get everything in this marriage because all she does is complain in regards to their move. 
that is until they meet the Dillons, Ash and Jimmy. they become best of friends and then its a bunch of blah blah blah. 

i skipped around and ultimately; Jimmy and Beth almost hooked up and of course Matt almost caught them. 
i guess this is a constant occurrence because Ash doesn't say anything. 
ever.

in the end Matt and Beth work it out and they even have a baby. its been a year and i guess they're still working on it, its still weird between them, but they stick it out. 

the only thing that got to me was that she stayed playing the victim. 
they didn't just kiss. he freaking finger banged her (sounds gross typing it out). she got off of him just in time but she never mentioned it to Matt so i feel like...eh, don't play the victim when you're not revealing the entire truth. 

....and i hope there never is, but how cool would it be if there was a sequel where their kids end up madly in love together. talk about awkward!

SPOILERS OVER

i don't think ill ever pick this up again. 
maaaaaaaybe if i find the book on sale but its not very important to me to find out what happens in the middle of it all. 

i really wish i could have liked this more than i didn't. 

thanks for reading.
