I fell to the bed with him at perfect peace with myself and the world.
This book is everything you want in a quirky, feel good read. King did an amazing job at making me feel connected to Amy right from the start, and I grew even more fond of her as the pages turned. I absolutely enjoyed getting to know the wide variety of characters in this book, but the majority of my fondness was reserved for Amy.
The daily struggles that Amy endures are known well by many women. Misogynistic boss, bitchy co-worker, creepy guy, coffee addiction, and the strive to pursue your dreams. This book has it all. I was constantly rooting for Amy the entire way. The ending was perfect, and whenever I finished this one I felt so happy with the way it ended. And I felt proud of Amy.
Michel Lee King's writing style is phenomenal. She kept such a wonderful flow with the story. And she made Amy so believable. There was no Mary Sue to be found. I daresay Amy and the other characters are all reflections of real people. They just had that authentic feel.
This story is a break from the supernatural and horror for me. And I didn't miss any of those things at all. The story is compelling and real. It's raw in its expression of the everyday life of women. Not all of us may be starving artists like Amy, but we all recognize her struggle and the pursuit of happiness. I would happily recommend this book to everyone. The quirky aspects set it apart from the rest of the New Adult fiction flooding the market (and my Kindle!) as of late.
