After I Do: A Novel | Taylor Jenkins Reid
26 posts | 65 read | 65 to read
From the author of Forever, Interruptedhailed by Sarah Jio as moving, gorgeous, and at times heart-wrenchingcomes a breathtaking new novel about modern marriage, the depth of family ties, and the year that one remarkable heroine spends exploring both.When Lauren and Ryans marriage reaches the breaking point, they come up with an unconventional plan. They decide to take a year off in the hopes of finding a way to fall in love again. One year apart, and only one rule: they cannot contact each other. Aside from that, anything goes. Lauren embarks on a journey of self-discovery, quickly finding that her friends and family have their own ideas about the meaning of marriage. These influences, as well as her own healing process and the challenges of living apart from Ryan, begin to change Laurens ideas about monogamy and marriage. She starts to question: When you can have romance without loyalty and commitment without marriage, when love and lust are no longer tied together, what do you value? What are you willing to fight for? This is a love story about what happens when the love fades. Its about staying in love, seizing love, forsaking love, and committing to love with everything youve got. And above all, After I Do is the story of a couple caught up in an old gameand searching for a new road to happily ever after.

1 story, 3 covers
The middle cover hooked me but I read the left one which underwhelmed me. Thoughts?

So this was the easiest 5 stars ever. I took this out from the library to read when I got too scared by #thewhisperman and it did the trick! I got so invested I finished it already!! Another winner by #taylorjenkinsreid for sure!

Really love this cover, & Taylor Jenkins Reid has quickly becoming one of my favorite writers since her last two books #DaisyJonesAndTheSix and Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo. Love how her characters came alive & believable through her writings! Hoping this one is just as good! *Fingers crossed*

Ok, TJR is now officially one of my favorite authors. This story is about a couple, Lauren & Ryan, who have been together for 11 years and have been steadily growing apart. They agree to separate for one year with no contact to see if their marriage is worth saving. I‘ve gotten little else done today because I had to finish this book. She captures the everyday aspect of relationships so well, and the characters are very relatable. I absolutely ⬇️

JenlovesJT47 Love this book, and have added it to my favorites shelf. I‘ve read 4 of her books so far and have given 5⭐️ to each. I‘d highly recommend giving her a try if you haven‘t already. ❤️ 5mo

SarahHarts_books So far I have only Read Evelyn and Maybe in Another Life. I loved both so much!! I'm waiting to get my copy of Daisy Jones. I can't wait to read it! I'm adding this one to my TBR. 5mo

I loved and needed this. Because in a long term relationship, I value these kinds of stories.
And because it was light reading. Every now and then that feels very refreshing.

What I liked the most about this book is the realistic description of a love story, from the fabulous "falling-in-love" phase to "marriage in crisis". However, even though I found the main character well developed, I think the author put less effort in developing the secondary characters, which makes it harder for me to empathize with them.
Overall I enjoyed this read and I think I will read other books by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Okay, so there's only a few days left in 2017, but I feel like I can squeeze another book (or two) in. I really enjoyed all the Taylor Jenkins Reid books I just consumed. Anyone else a fan and can recommend something similar? Or maybe just something short and sweet to end my year on a good note, literature-lly?

I've read nearly all of Taylor Jenkins Reid's books now and I have to say this one is probably my favorite so far. It's a simple story about a marriage falling apart, but it manages to flesh out how complicated matters of the heart can truly get. While relatable, it's not a predictable story. You really don't know what will (or should) happen to these characters. I think that's what made it such a heartbreaking read in the first place.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I‘ll have to add this one! I‘ve only read Evelyn and it‘s one of my all time favorites!! 💚💚 2y
Purrfectpages @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I loved Evelyn too! This one has a different vibe, but is also good in its own right! 2y

My third Taylor Jenkins Reid, and the third to make me ugly cry. All so different and so good. Also: this one NEEDS to be a movie!

wrenaymuhree I‘ve still just read Evelyn Hugo! I was pleasantly surprised, though...so I‘d better read more! Adding this one to my pile. :) 2y
nomadreader @wrenaymuhree I started with Evelyn Hugo and am reading her backlist in the order they were published. I love them. 2y

I forget when I got this book or where, but I've been looking forward to reading it for a month as it patiently waited for me. And then I read it so fast because I loved it (note the time of the photo)! It's a fast read, but full of really thoughtful questions, perspectives and examples of marriage and relationships. It challenges assumptions and one-size-fits-all thinking. is relatable and warm. It reminded me a bit of Emily Giffin's writing.

I definitely didn't think I'd be liking this book as much as I am. It's like marshmallow fluff, which isn't a bad thing, just not what I usually read. I could see this becoming a movie starring Anna Kendrick.

Reviewsbylola I felt the same way about her book Maybe in Another Life. When I started it I was afraid I would hate it because it seemed like chick lit but I absolutely loved it. 3y
