Book Review: How Could She
What a book! I honestly loved this and as per usual, I will do my review without any spoilers so that those of you who would like to check it out don’t get the ending ruined for you.
After a devastating break-up with her fiancé, Geraldine is struggling to get her life back on track in Toronto. Her two old friends, Sunny and Rachel, left ages ago for New York, where they’ve landed good jobs, handsome husbands, and unfairly glamorous lives (or at least so it appears to Geraldine). Sick of watching from the sidelines, Geraldine decides to force the universe to give her the big break she knows she deserves, and moves to New York City.
As she zigzags her way through the downtown art scene and rooftop party circuit, she discovers how hard it is to find her footing in a world of influencers and media darlings. Meanwhile, Sunny’s life as an It Girl watercolorist is not nearly as charmed as it seemed to Geraldine from Toronto. And Rachel is trying to keep it together as a new mom, writer, and wife–how is it that she was more confident and successful at twenty-five than in her mid-thirties? Perhaps worst of all, why are Sunny and Rachel–who’ve always been suspicious of each other–suddenly hanging out without Geraldine?How Could She
When I started reading this book, I was a bit overwhelmed. It has three main characters who all have different characters that they’re interacting with. I struggled at the beginning with it because it was hard to keep up with when I wasn’t sure who all these people were. Plus, I don’t really like to read books with multiple POV because I don’t always like the different storylines.
While I continued to read this book, though, I was shook. There’s this concept that by a certain age, you should have your life together. You should have the white picket fence and a stable job. I really like that this book throws that on its head. It’s one of those things where no one has their life together and I love it.
Overall, this book is well written and I really enjoyed it. I highly suggest it. Want to pre-order it for yourself? Click here to get it on Amazon.
