Would I say my reading addiction is a problem?

Would you consider the fact that I've blown my daughter's future college fund on new books an issue? Cool, me either. I knew we'd be friends.

AUTHOR: Jennifer Weiner

GENRE: Women’s Fiction | Historical Fiction | Family Saga | Coming of Age

RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

RELEASE DATE: June 11, 2019

PUBLISHER: Atria Books

COMPARABLE TITLES: The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer, Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

SUMMARY: Mrs. Everything is the story of Jo and Bethie Kaufman, two sisters coming of age in the ’50s and ’60s. Growing up, Jo and Bethie got along well, despite their differences. Jo was sporty, good in school and harboring a secret that caused her to build heavy walls around herself. Bethie was girly, felt alive in the center of a stage and would go to any length to look the part of the glamorous star she believed she was meant to be.

But as time passes, Jo and Bethie grow apart.

Jo finds herself conforming to all the ideals and expectations of women in modern society, despite her earlier iconoclast years. After fighting so hard to stay out of the cookie cutter mold, pure exhaustion leads her to fall right in the middle of it.

Bethie finds herself lost, literally and figuratively. After a devasatting and traumatic experience, Bethie wanders the world, sleeping on park benches, eating whatever food she can find and roaming farther and farther away from the idyllic life she’d always wanted.

But as the sisters get older they both start to realize that there’s never a time when one must stop trying—it’s always possible to change your own circumstances. Instead of letting their lives happen to them, they finally realize that it’s their personal responsibility to mold their experiences into the lives they truly want.

WHY THIS IS A MUST-READ: This is a spectacular book about women—their history, their present and their future. Written as an anthem of hope, this book is a must-read for all women who believe they can, despite what they have (or haven’t) grown up believing.

RATING SYSTEM:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️—Add this to your must-read list immediately. This is an important and moving book. I highly recommend.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️—This book was entertaining, well-written, and worthwhile. I definitely recommend.

⭐️⭐️⭐️—This book was decent and a good read. I recommend, but do not consider it a must-read.

⭐️⭐️—This book had one or two positive qualities, but overall I do not recommend.

⭐️—This book fell flat in several ways. I do not recommend.
