The first book I ever read by Taylor Jenkins Reid was...
Forever, Interrupted. From page one I was hooked and instantly became a fan of Jenkins Reid. She writes stories about characters we love and feel connected to...she writes about love, life and all it's complications perfectly.
My Wish for Taylor Jenkins Reid as a Mom…
ignore all the nonsense. Find your own way, don't compare your parenting or your child's development against other mother/kids. Embrace the chaos. We are all just muddling through. Find the joy in each day...even the hard ones.
My Wish for Taylor Jenkins Reid as an author…
is that she always is able to write her stories. That her stories continue to flow through her and that she is able to share them with the world. I wish her lots of success. It is well earned and well deserved. She is a talent and I am grateful for her stories.
My Favorite book by Taylor Jenkins Reid…
ALL OF THEM... no BS. I cannot choose. I love them all for different reasons. They are al brillant in their own right. I can never answer these questions. Too hard. I know each and every time a book is released by Jenkins Reid, that is will be a new favorite and then her other books will be my old favorites...but her books are always my favorites!!!
Who is your One True Love?
My wonderful family of 4...the unit of the 4 of us is my ONE TRUE LOVE!!!
From the author of Maybe in Another Life—named a People Magazine pick and a "Best Book of the Summer" by Glamour and USA TODAY—comes a breathtaking new love story about a woman unexpectedly forced to choose between the husband she has long thought dead and the fiancé who has finally brought her back to life.
In her twenties, Emma Blair marries her high school sweetheart, Jesse. They build a life for themselves, far away from the expectations of their parents and the people of their hometown in Massachusetts. They travel the world together, living life to the fullest and seizing every opportunity for adventure.
On their first wedding anniversary, Jesse is on a helicopter over the Pacific when it goes missing. Just like that, Jesse is gone forever.
Emma quits her job and moves home in an effort to put her life back together. Years later, now in her thirties, Emma runs into an old friend, Sam, and finds herself falling in love again. When Emma and Sam get engaged, it feels like Emma’s second chance at happiness.
That is, until Jesse is found. He’s alive, and he’s been trying all these years to come home to her. With a husband and a fiancé, Emma has to now figure out who she is and what she wants, while trying to protect the ones she loves.
Who is her one true love? What does it mean to love truly?
Emma knows she has to listen to her heart. She’s just not sure what it’s saying.
I cannot say enough how much I love Taylor Jenkins Reid. Her writing has a way to make me get the feels from the first sentence to the last. I have LOVED every book she has EVER written. They are all 5 stars. In ONE TRUE LOVES Jenkins Reid made me feel a lot of things...heartbroken, hopeful, nervous, scared, confused and everything in between. What would you do if you had to chose between your two loves. Do you go with with your heart or your mind. How do you make the choice that will determine your future? This book is like no other I have read in a long time. It had such a unique premise and brilliant storytelling. It was such an emotionally haunting and soul searching read. All the while I was wondering what I would do, how would I react...what choice would I make. Another amazing 5 star hit! Love Love Love Love Love!!!!
