Jennifer Weiner was somewhat an emotional roller coaster of a read It was often quite humorous but also rather touching in moments when Cannie is dealing with different areas of her life There s romance mixed with grief Anxiety mixed with humor Indecision, heartache, grief, loss, emotional growth and joy Pretty much any type of emotion a reader could think of wrapped into this one I will say I wasn t a huge fan of Cannie wanting to hold onto her relationship after she d initially broken things off but as the read went on I grew to understand her fears and thoughts along the way so the story drew me in as she went through her life after her public humiliation Overall, an emotional roller coaster of a ride with the main character while dealing with being a plus sized woman in a society obsessed with weight I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Forreviews please visit Sometimes a person needs a light read A fun read A pick it up

important message in an accessible format We meet many people in our lives and love many be eternal or fleeting Regardless of the time that love is shared, or held on to, the depth, the intensity, the interwoven sense of purpose can vary We may not always love the person that we love now We may not always remain with the person that we love and yet we may love them forever I, personally, love many people I love them in different ways I love them to different depths I m the type that always loves If I love you today, I will love you tomorrow There is nothing that you can do to stop that love I may not like you if you hurt other or myself, but love and like are not the same thing Like can change love remains Needless to type, I do not throw the word Love around lightly I do not tell my husband that I love him every time that we part in person, on the phone, into slumber land I tell him that I love him when I am consciously aware of how present that love is, when I am embraced and caught up in it, when I am fully in that moment This can occur when I see him act kindly in a moment when I may not, when I remember something that he has said that I may not have appreciated fully at the time, when I hear about another relationship, another partner, that purposely does something hurtful and realize that Jim is such a good person, when I remember past relationship, past hurts and know that he is kind Sometimes this can happen simply because he squeaks when he laughs or because his dark lashes frame his clear blue eyes in a certain light There is a depth to that love Intensity A texture Love goes beyond people, for me anyway, and encompasses ideas Sometimes, I have learned, that people are mere reflections positive or negative of the ideals that what frame them within Sometimes they are not the people that we imagine them to be fairly or unfairly.This story reminds me that there are different kinds of love and that time and changes in relationship status do not diminish it I loved some that came before JIM I still love some that hurt me badly badly, but this is a different kind of love than what I share with my incredible husband who does leave balls of socks all over the house and wonders why the dogs eat them I told him last night that there is nothing in the world that I would trade for him and there is nothing, nothing that could ever compare to him, but this incredible love does not remove the past loves the past current loves and that is what I liked most about this book.This book shares the story of a larger woman and her search for love from herself, from partners, from day in day out family, from her father post painfully reminiscent of my own life , from her dog, and from society She struggles, she shares humor and rage She shares hope and she embraces she embraces.Memorable passage and words to live by I will love myself, and my body, for what it can do because it is strong enough to lift, to walk, to ride a bicycle up a hill, to embrace the people that I love and hold them fully, and to nurture a new life I will love myself because I am sturdy Because I did not will not break p365 Well by reading some of the reviews below, I guess I am the only one that really did NOT like this book I thought it was quite IRONIC That Violet loved the screenplay because the lead character didn t need to be rescued unlike Cannie She seems so winey and down on not only herself but everyone else To me this was NOT an uplifting book, It was actually rather depressing and I only finished it because it was the book selected for my book club so i felt obligated to finish it It was a chore Well by reading some of the reviews below, I guess I am the only one that really did NOT like this book I thought it was quite IRONIC That Violet loved

actually rather depressing and I only finished it because it was the book selected for my book club so i felt obligated to finish it It was a chore to read I have another one Jennifer weiners books and now i am thinking should I waste my time Hopefully little earthquakes is better than this book Sorry I just didn t connect at all with Cannie I felt she was flat and i really hated the scene where she ditched the guy in the restaurant when he said it wasn t a date Come on she can t be friends with men only date them Put your feet on the ground and smell the coffee What is the author trying to say here Pretty sad in my opinion I admit I am not a chic lit fan, but i thought well i liked Stephanie Plum so maybe i have judged chic lit unfairly This book to be was not worth the time i spent on it Waste of time Update I had another book by this author I gave it away I am not going to waste my time reading it when there are so many other GOOD books out there This author is NOT for me She dummies down her writing, my thoughts are if you need your literature dummied down for you then do something else She is not added to my DO NOT READ list this book had a lot of things going on none of it was interesting.it starts off with this ross and rachel break situation and a semi harsh column about dating a large woman, and then it turns into a soap opera i expected an evil twin to appear it was just bad real bad also she was a size 16 at 5 10 with big boobs lord really cry me a river.
