        I knew nothing about this book and thought it looked good from the Book Girls description. I was blown away! Absolutely loved it! How about you? Yes or no?

          I also picked this book on a whim and really enjoyed it. I loved the real-ness of the story and relationships presented

            I read this last year and enjoyed it as well. Still need to watch the movie to see how accurately it reflects the book.

              I picked it up because it crosses over two of my reading challenges this month. Also blown away! It was a sweet little story; the slice of lifeness to it, with its no-fuss style applied to the complications of living a life. Loved it. Didn’t realize there‘s a movie!

                I think I’m the odd one out. My book club picked this to read this month so I knew I would love it, but I didn’t.  It started out very strong with some mystery and interesting characters. I liked the writing style, too. But as it went on I thought the story progressed too quickly and the characters lost the charm and intrigue that they originally held. When it was finished I felt I missed out on too much of their lives. It hadn’t kept the connection that I had in the first half of the story.  Don’t get me wrong, I liked the book, I just didn’t love it like I wanted to.
