Isn’t that title amazing? I mean, how on point is that?
I am two for two on new authors for me this week and I am definitely not complaining. I have heard of Kristan Higgins for years. Hell, I have a couple of her paperbacks on my bookshelf at home (what can I say, my TBR is massive). Yet, I hadn’t read anything of hers until this week. And damnit, I am so glad I did.
This book was a 5 star for me. I was completely hooked and engaged with the characters the entire time. They were written well. They were written like real people, with real problems, and a lot of freaking drama. To be biased, Miller and Tess were probably my favorites. Riley, I can only hope, is who my daughters might be like when they are older. And Emma – her strength like steel is admirable.
In short, some characters were likable, some were not. Some had money, others did not. You honestly get a glimpse of what privilege can provide you, and realize even that isn’t everything. Parenting is hard, single parenting and co-parenting is even harder. Losing a child is the absolute hardest.
Life and Other Inconveniences will make you laugh in solidarity, shed a tear with sadness, and fill your soul til its brimming. Higgins is now a staple in my favorites. Now, off to find those other books on my shelf…
I received an advanced copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
