#SummerEndReadathon #Rushathon

After placing the author‘s previous book Last Summer at the Golden Hotel on my 2022 favorite reads, I was excited for this book & used a #BOTM credit to get a copy for #SundayBuddyRead. Such a disappointment! Mostly unlikable characters, every cliche, plot line, & topic she could imagine thrown in there. Generally, it‘s just a hot mess of a book. Thankfully the weekly group discussions make a bad book entertaining!

TheSpineView What a disappointment! At least you can go on to something better. 2d
AmyG Agree! 2d

So disappointing! This felt more like a draft of a book than a finished book. The characters were not relatable, and the plot made little sense. Friedland‘s book Last Summer at the Golden Hotel was much more enjoyable. I only stuck with it for the beloved #SundayBuddyRead 😅

Prairiegirl_reading Good on you for finishing. I couldn‘t. 2d
Karisa @Prairiegirl_reading There was some skimming involved to make it to the end. 😂 2d
Prairiegirl_reading @Karisa you still did much better than I did! After week one I tried to stick with it but I think I read three pages and I couldn‘t force myself to do it! It was just so bad!!! 2d

TheBookHippie @IndoorDame 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 3d
TheBookHippie @AmyG 🤦🏻‍♀️ 3d
vlwelser I'm pumped about next year. I love that you kept it secret and sent it in the mail. And made cards and bookmarks. We are totally spoiled. 🤗😘 3d
mcctrish I am so looking forward to getting mail ❤️❤️❤️ 3d
TheDaysGoBy It was a fun discussion! I don‘t think I‘ve read a book that rated so poorly in a long time but it was fun sharing the hate with everyone 😂 Maybe I‘ll have to continue on with you all - I liked the book I read of Simone St James 3d
DebinHawaii I got mine! Yay! Thank you for adding a bright spot to my long tiring week! 🤗 2d
mollyrotondo I just got my @TheBookHippie #sundaybuddyread2024 mail and I‘m sooo excited!! Thank you! ❤️ 2d
TheBookHippie @TheDaysGoBy 😵‍💫🤦🏻‍♀️ in our seven years together we have read some stinkers!! Oy. 2d
LiseWorks Where can I get this book. It's not on Kindle or libby. 2d
TheBookHippie @LiseWorks https://www.amazon.com/Ivy-Tree-Mary-Stewart-ebook/dp/B00GVFUDWI/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?... I have it on my kindle and a library copy and I purchased a copy 🙃 2d
LiseWorks Lol, I don't buy books. If I can't get it for free then I don't read it. But it still never showed up on my kindle or the library I use 2d
TheBookHippie @LiseWorks it was on sale really cheap earlier in the year that‘s when we all got it. 2d

Six months later

Oh good it‘s all fixed now

Also The husband granted permission for Priya to have a day off 😵‍💫
No cancer for Melissa
No yearbook superlatives
The girls are just most likely now..

Awards for finishing 🏆🏆🏆


AmyG That‘s a great bookmark. When you are happy th finally finish a book? A BAD sign. 🤣 3d
IndoorDame Oooh I need this bookmark! Granted permission 😖😤😡🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 3d
Karisa That‘s the perfect bookmark for this book and yes, tiny trophies all around! Maybe the author needs to slow down a bit to think; she‘s churning the books out too fast. People are making money and not focusing on making a good read… 3d

TheBookHippie @IndoorDame I own it if that helps 🤣 3d
TheBookHippie @Karisa I think you‘re right. 3d
vlwelser I agree with @Karisa this feels like a deadline book. 3d
vonnie862 I want that bookmark! 3d
vonnie862 The ending was to leave in a positive note but I was just glad it was over. 3d
Librarybelle It was so disappointing, compared to what we read last year by the author! 3d
TheBookHippie @Librarybelle honestly I can‘t believe it. 3d
mcctrish I bought that very bookmark on Etsy. I could barely read the wrap up #whocares #happilyeverafter🤮 3d
TheDaysGoBy Love the bookmark! 3d
TheBookHippie @mcctrish me too several 🖕🏻books ago 🤦🏻‍♀️😵‍💫🤣 3d
TheDaysGoBy The premise to this book was so interesting. I feel like it could‘ve worked if maybe the book actually did what I thought: started with the reunion and their commitment to change their lives and then we get to see the in depth changes they struggle through to get to a good place. I don‘t know how you bring up so many serious issues (eating disorders, cancer, etc) and gloss right over all of it. I just don‘t get it (edited) 3d
TheBookHippie @TheDaysGoBy I‘m at a total loss. 3d
mcctrish @TheDaysGoBy it could have been awesome 3d
TheBookHippie @mcctrish honestly it had potential … 3d
Deblovestoread Nothing new to add as you and fellow readers expressed all my thoughts, and feelings and 🤮 moments. Love the bookmark! 3d
DebinHawaii Love the bookmark as well. 😆 I agree with everyone—the book had potential but she just scattershot every problem or plot device out there & nothing stuck. Disappointing! 2d
TheBookHippie @DebinHawaii it‘s unreal this is the same author we read previously!!! 2d
DebinHawaii @TheBookHippie Right?! The Kindle library book I was reading this in had an excerpt from her other book but I don‘t think I will read it now as the brief snippet was giving me “hot mess” vibes especially after just finishing this one. And Last Summer at the Golden Hotel was so good! 2d
TheBookHippie @DebinHawaii 😵‍💫🤦🏻‍♀️ I‘m not trying her again this was so cringe ! And OY VEY!! 2d
mollyrotondo @TheDaysGoBy I also thought this was what would happen. Either start with the reunion, make the pact, then see how everyone reaches their goal. Or make the end date to reach the goal be the next reunion date. Not this weird hodgepodge of problems that they just seem to make worse by trying to reach these goals that only work out due to “movie magic” or neat tie it with a bow book endings. Golden Hotel was a gem that she can‘t replicate for us. 55m

So opening night at Tik.. seriously you think that would work?!

Oh good a lump in the breast …we needed another midlife thing 🤦🏻‍♀️

I can‘t with the women who don‘t have kids live fulfilling lives or women can‘t have it all trope.
Or all the name dropping

I hate read this week

What is wrong with the author? Should we send help ?!

AmyG This book was not for me. So much random craziness happenning to each character…it didn‘t “feel” like real life. It all just felt absurd. I couldn‘t relate to most of it. 3d
IndoorDame I think we should definitely send help! I mean what‘s with the idea that Priya is “responsible” for reminding them to get mammograms? They‘re not her spoiled kids, they can set yearly phone alerts, or trust that the doctor will call and nag them. I think our author is feeling the weight of the world and is freaking out about it cause she aught to delegate about 90% of whatever‘s on her plate. 3d
Karisa @amyg Yep, “random” is a good word for it. This book just kept going downhill. It felt all over the place and like she was still shaping the characters as she went. Throwing any ideas at them to see what would stick like the Priya as mom/doc to all thing that @IndoorDame mentioned 3d

TheBookHippie @IndoorDame 💯💯💯💯 3d
vlwelser What the actual fuck happened to this author? 3d
TheBookHippie @vlwelser 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3d
vonnie862 This chapter had me 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️ 3d
Librarybelle @IndoorDame I found it sad, just sad that Priya was the one to remind everyone about getting a mammogram. Perhaps no one else in this book has heard of the Google calendar??? Also, the lump only to be brushed aside at the end as a non-issue, almost like an afterthought…not cool. 3d
mcctrish The idea of Priya reminding them was the only random control thing I could manage to fathom, except she wasn‘t that type of dr so not really. We have smart phones so there‘s no reason to not have this kind of thing programmed - I get a letter from Ontario health reminding me it‘s time to book and I‘m grateful for that and I stand with @vlwelser 🤯🤯🤯 3d
mcctrish @Librarybelle maybe the lump should have been a twist earlier instead of a threesome and that‘s why shithead left with the yoga teacher and Melissa wanted everyone to go to the reunion cuz she wanted to remember happier times and celebrate being healthy and Nathan gave money to a women‘s hospital and they meet and there is no Elon 3d
DebinHawaii The author was just thinking up topical or semi-topical issues & tossing them in there all willy-nilly for their dramatic effect. 2d
mollyrotondo I thought it was actually so sad that Priya‘s “friends” use her too to manage their lives. Does she have enough to juggle with her kids and her terrible husband and being a doctor? Her friends clearly didn‘t respect her either by making her feel like she had to manage their breast health. These people are all terrible. Worst friends ever. 1h
mollyrotondo And yes! Send her help 😂 🤣 60m
