Pack Up the Moon | Kristan Higgins
14 posts | 7 read | 4 to read
Every month, a letter. That's what Lauren decides to leave her husband when she finds out she's dying. Each month, she gives Josh a letter containing a task to help him face this first year without her, leading him on a heartrending, beautiful, often humorous journey to find happiness again in this new novel from the New York Times bestselling author Kristan Higgins. Joshua and Lauren are the perfect couple. Newly married, they're wildly in love, each on a successful and rewarding career path. Then Lauren is diagnosed with a terminal illness. As Lauren's disease progresses, Joshua struggles to make the most of the time he has left with his wife and to come to terms with his future--a future without the only woman he's ever loved. He's so consumed with finding a way to avoid the inevitable ending that he never imagines his life after Lauren. But Lauren has a plan to keep her husband moving forward. A plan hidden in the letters she leaves him. In those letters, one for every month in the year after her death, Lauren leads Joshua on a journey through pain, anger, and denial. It's a journey that will take Joshua from his attempt at a dinner party for family and friends to getting rid of their bed...from a visit with a psychic medium to a kiss with a woman who isn't Lauren. As his grief makes room for laughter and new relationships, Joshua learns Lauren's most valuable lesson: The path to happiness doesn't follow a straight line. Sometimes heartbreaking, often funny, and always uplifting, this novel from New York Times bestselling author Kristan Higgins illuminates how life's greatest joys are often hiding in plain sight.

10-28-22: My 107th finished book of 2022! Wow! I LOVED this one. Josh and Lauren are unbelievably in love and have been married for 3 years. Lauren has a terminal illness. She decides to write Josh a letter for each month of the first year after she is gone to help him navigate through his grief. It was a beautiful story that brought me to tears several times. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📖#️⃣1️⃣0️⃣7️⃣

This was a gut punch of a book! Love, loss, and grief is explored from multiple family perspectives when a young woman and new bride dies of a terminal illness. So many beautiful parts of this story, really had me thinking about life, blessings, and how we show up for the people we love. All the CW about death, but if you are in the right place for this one, it is amazing. #audio #BookspinBingo This fave me my 4th #bingo @TheAromaofBooks

A family member says I just read this book and you will love it. I laughed and cried while reading it. I‘ve only read chapter 1 and I know I have to read this one at home with tissues close by.

I did order a copy of Pew for myself since the library insists I return my borrowed copy! I desperately need my husband to read this so we can discuss it.

I spotted a secondhand copy of Pack Up the Moon at the bookstore today, but since we‘re low on funds right now, I almost passed. But then I read the first few pages, teared up a bit, and concluded that I do need this kind of emotional torment in my life.

Not her usual light reading. Sad and endearing.

"She had almost died. There was no avoiding that fact. It slept with her there in the hospital, amorphous no longer, but a sharp steel blade. It was real now. She woke up thinking about it, and she took it with her to sleep, and it was there in the foggy places in between."

Gah! I can‘t believe I forgot to post this one! First go and find a copy of this story. THE FEELS, People! And while you‘re grabbing a copy of the book do yourself a solid and grab some Kleenex, a snack and a drink. This will have you laughing, crying and totally loving these characters. TikTok has this one right. Read it! And no I don‘t have that app on my phone. 😆
