  • Chelsea (chelseadolling reads)

    10/10 do recommend reading this in the tub with a glass of wine and Fleetwood Mac playing softly in the background. SO DAMN GOOD.

    I read one book at a time and routinely read at the gym on the treadmill and bike, but the book I’m reading is a hard copy and I can’t hold it as comfortably as my kindle. I had downloaded this short story/novella for free from Amazon thanks to my Goodreads friend Melisa so my dilemma was solved . I read this and can get back to my book . About this story - wow! I always enjoy epistolary novels and I wasn’t sure how this would work as a short story, but it certainly did for me. It’s engaging, sa ...more

  • Theresa Alan

    This is good for a short story. When a woman, Carrie, discovers letters from a married woman named Janet to Carrie’s husband, Ken, Carrie writes Janet’s husband, David. David and Carrie find strength in one another as they try to figure out whether to confront their spouses or try to fix their respective marriages. The whole story is told via letters from the spouses that are being cheated on, as well as the letters their spouses have kept from one another and hidden—but not well enough. Because ...more

    This was a cute little novella, which told the story of two people who found out their spouses were having an affair with each other, creating a friendship between them. It was a short book, but nicely written and ultimately satisfying. It was pretty predictable and a little cuter than my usual fare, but all in all, a nice break from all the crime fiction I've been reading;-)

    This is an amazing little book (if not a bit predictable in the end).

    I love how the story unfolds - past, present and future - and I love how real it feels.

    Go pick it up...

    i literally read this right after getting out of the shower while doing a face mask and eating grapes and let me tell you, it truly was a cathartic experience

    this short story proves, most importantly, a theory i've had for a long time now: don't trust men who don't appreciate david bowie. (generally 'don't trust men' but bitch i been knew.)

    it's truly so inspiring how much taylor jenkin reid just despises most male human beings, i relate to that shit on a deeply personal level

    "Thank you for being there for me. I know you only as handwriting on a page, and yet you might be my closest friend."

    i, for one, am glad that this doesn't take place in our current age and time. can you imagine two people texting each other things like "wtf lmao i found out my husband is cheating on me with your wife uwu" back and forth and like, using kermit the frog memes to express their sadness or something???

    i don't really know what it is with taylor jenkins reid, but she just has the ability to take you back to the old days. 'the old days' being an age where you weren't even alive yet, but somehow TJR just manages to take you back anyways. this was told through letters and somehow i could still smell and feel and just live the 70's and just be immersed in that time and.... [clenches fist] i love that shit brö

    her writing is so beautiful and romantic it makes me mad that i'm not sleeping comfortably in bed next to the love of my life in a cottage with no obligations other than watering my vegetable garden.

    "You are a revelation. And beside you, I could feel nothing but peace."

    [in an agressive voice] someone move to the mountains with me and love me 24/7 RIGHT FUCKING NOW!!!!

    as a final note: at one point while reading this short story i texted one of my br partners "i want to tattoo this novella on my ass" and i feel like that really encompasses everything i need to tell you about my feelings regarding reid's writing.

    11/10 would recommend if you're looking for something to meet the demands of your inner romantic bitch!
