Today, Jennifer recommends a book for your summer reading list:
“A writer friend recommended Allison Winn Scotch’s Time of My Life and oh did I love it! I grabbed it at the library (quite proud of myself for being so frugal) and read almost the entire book on a train ride from D.C. to Boston. I loved it so much I bought myself a copy to share with friends.
What’s it about you ask? Picture this: you’re entrenched in your life…the house, the husband, the baby. Sound familiar?! But the ghosts from your past (and those of past loves) keep coming back to haunt you from time to time (yeah, thanks Facebook). Then, one day you wake up and you actually have the chance to do it all over again. Would you choose a different path?
This is a great novel that’s real, funny, and thought-provoking (marriage, relationships, motherhood, and sense of self) all at the same time. A great read to tuck in the beach bag!”
