THROWBACK THURSDAY PICK OF THE WEEK

throwbackthursday

I began this Throwback Thursday meme as a way to share some of my old favorites as well as sharing books that I want to read that were published over a year ago. You know, the ones waiting patiently on my TBR list while I continue to pile more titles on top of them:)! I like that these older books are usually much easier than new releases to get a hold of at libraries and elsewhere. If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board, you’re welcome to use my pic as well. If you’d just link back to me I’d so appreciate it

My Pick this week is:

11459962

 

Published June 2011 by Penguin 

My Rating: 5/5 Stars 

Alice Love is twenty-nine, crazy about her husband, and pregnant with her first child.

So imagine Alice’s surprise when she comes to on the floor of a gym and is whisked off to the hospital where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over — she’s getting divorced, she has three kids and she’s actually 39 years old. Alice must reconstruct the events of a lost decade, and find out whether it’s possible to reconstruct her life at the same time. She has to figure out why her sister hardly talks to her, and how is it that she’s become one of those super skinny moms with really expensive clothes.

Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over.

This book ticks a lot of my favorite must read boxes….funny, engaging, dramatic and characters I can connect with and root for. Although I only have 2 kids, I could put myself in Alice’s shoes and wonder what would happen if I went to spinning class (which I used to do but no longer..it’s hard😅), fell off my bike, hit my head and woke up believing I was 10 years younger and my life was peachy only to find out…nope, life is not all that good right now. If you like a well written dramatic read with humor, wisdom, and great characterization you’ll love What Alice Forgot!

Happy Reading!

Have you read this or think you’d like to? I’d love to hear from you in the comments

  1. Looks like a great read! I remember seeing it everywhere for a while but, for some reason, I thought it was a book about dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. I think I must have been confusing it with Still Alice…

  2. I like these posts Renee. I haven’t read most of the books that you’ve featured on your Throwback Thursdays posts so I am always making new discoveries. This sounds like a wonderful, humorous read. Thanks for sharing.
