So as of lately I have tried to get more into reading. Seeing other bloggers suggesting books and reviewing them has made finding great reads fairly easy. I figured if I can select one book a month (for now) to focus on and take my time reading, I can set a realistic expectation for myself to keep reading.
It's Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Never After by Andi Dorfman
I read Andi Dorfman's book It's Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Never After especially after hearing all the buzz around it from Bachelor in Paradise. I enjoyed Andi's season and loved her and Josh together because you could sense the instant connection the two had. When news of their breakup broke out, both A and I were shocked!! Even he really like Josh & Andi, having gotten into the season after convincing him he has to watch (lol).
After reading the book, a lot of stuff now makes sense. Andi didn't hold back when it came to anything and I appreciated that sort of vulnerability from her. She knows she made mistakes in regards to finding love and she was almost blind in doing so.
I also got a completely different perception of Josh from her book. Of course it's only one side of the story and of course much of it can be made up, but after seeing how he was behaving on BIP, some of what she said actually made sense and I could see how it made sense.
If you are a fan of The Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise franchise, then I highly suggest you read this book. This book made me want to read more and the way she told the stories was captivating. At times she felt a little bitchy to me, but I get that she was frustrated with things that had transpired.
The only downfall I had was that it was an e-book and didn't have the same feel as a real book that has pictures and such. Although having an e-book totally made it easy with all the traveling I did over the last month to carry my iPad with me and read whenever I had a chance.
Have you read this book? What are your thoughts if you have?
