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.
