Good Read? In my case listen to. Why would any two people who profess to love each other so much do such a stupid thing. Why didn't Jake man up and leave his Bitch wife? Why would any woman throw her undying love away on a guy who only…Read moreRead more of this comment

'28 Summers' seems to have elicited strong emotions in reviewers here and elsewhere. I didn't love '28 Summers' nor did I hate it. I simply don't understand why some view everything in the lens of their own era or their own biases. It's…Read moreRead more of this comment

What a bizarre mixture of politics, luck of any common moral principles- people are sleeping around with their best friends or with best friends of their best friends - and all of that is being framed as ‘romantic relationships’.

I should learn that I am not going to enjoy romance novels. I gave this book a chance because one of my favorite films is "Same Time Next Year" with Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn. The difference between the two premises is that in the film…Read moreRead more of this comment

I listened to the audio version of this book. The narration by Erin Bennett was very good.
The book started out with a prologue that let you know this wasn't going to be a happy book. That knowledge was hanging over me for the entire rest…Read moreRead more of this comment

I enjoyed reading this book. Had a hard time putting it down whenever I picked it up to read.
I liked the way Elin Hilderbrand started each chapter with the same format....Summer #1: 1996 all the way to Summer #28: 2020. "What were…Read moreRead more of this comment

I was caught up in the drama, but the Supreme Court hearings part was too reminiscent of the Bret Kavanaugh nomination where, in my opinion, he was unfairly targeted without believable
testimony and vindictive Democrats. Without that…Read moreRead more of this comment

3 Stars(?) I think 樂
Dang! This hurt and crazily enough, the ending wasn't a devastating surprise, because it was revealed early in the prologue. Thankfully, that also meant there wasn't the emotional manipulation I often feel in these…Read moreRead more of this comment

This was a perfect rainy day beach book. I got hooked on the story and couldn't put it down.
Alas, the Same Time Next Year story line started to fizzle and wasn't sustainable over 28 years. I enjoyed her trips down memory lane at the…Read moreRead more of this comment
