My Girlfriend's Boyfriend

Okay you guys.  I just read the BEST book.  It's by one of my favorite authors, Elodia Strain.  I've written about her books before.  Her newest book is called My Girlfriend's Boyfriend.

It. Is. So. Good.

I started reading it one evening and stayed up way too late to finish it that same night.  I truly couldn't put it down.  Elodia is masterful at creating characters that are quirky, endearing, and real.  I am always able to connect with what they are feeling and experiencing.  Her book is funny but also inspiring.  I laughed out loud while reading it in the bookstore; I'm sure I looked like a total weirdo.  I was in tears by the end of the book, it was really that good.

I don't want to give too much away, so I won't share any more.  Even though it is kind of killing me to not share my favorite parts and all of the things I learned.  I'm the kind of person that hates even reading the synopsis because I don't like knowing too much about a book before I read it.  Just know this: it is awesome and you will love it.    

Also, did you know that My Girlfriend's Boyfriend is a movie?  The movie actually came first.  I had to watch it the day after I finished the book.  It was also REALLY good.  You can watch it for free on hulu here.  Or I believe you can watch it on Netflix.  And you should because I think you will really enjoy it.


  1. I watched it and then a few weeks later the author was at Costco! I need to read the book, I really liked the movie! Cute, with a totally unexpected twist, I like that! :)

  2. I liked the movie too! I watched it a few weeks ago and I loved it. I didn't know it was a book though. Now I'll have to find it and read it.

  3. Thanks for the suggestion! I didn't know what to do with all my free time today until I hopped over to Hulu and saw it sittin' there. I just finished it and I liked it!! I think I actually saw the beginning of it a few months ago when my friends were watching it on Netflix, but I was sad when I had to run off somewhere and couldn't finish it with them. I totally forgot about it since I don't have Netflix, and I didn't even remember it until I saw the first few minutes of the movie. Cute!

  4. We love this movie! We discovered it one night on Netflix! So good! I didn't know there was a book too! Going to have to check that out for sure!

  5. I love the movie. I had no idea it was a book! I looked it up, and never could find it. How exciting. Thanks!

  6. So I found your blog today from U-Create. As I read down and saw this post, I immediately went on Netflix and queued it up. Put the kids to bed, husbands out of town and I just finished watching it. I'm sure my eyes are pretty puffy now. Good movie. I will be looking for the book tomorrow.
