A wonderful mess

First off, I just want to say that I thought this book was wonderfully written. I have struggled with how many stars because the book was charming and fun and definitely witty. It was my kind of book but not my kind of book. The characters are full of life. What I did not care for at all were the numerous f words. It’s probably the cuss word I dislike the most and this book is full of them. While this book did not contain descriptive sex, there was much talk of sex and fidelity a

This is the kind of book that will likely get made into a holiday rom-com starring an awkward mishmash of celebrities in a couple years, but it made me laugh quite a bit, so it gets 3.5 stars.

The concept is...funky: a dying great-aunt (Blix) conjures romantic magic all around her, and she wants to leave behind her legacy for a young woman she hardly knows (Marnie) because there's some sort of kismet between them. The characters seem to be compelling and quirky enough to carry this thing. Okay,

This is one of my favorite kind of books, you know the ones I am talking about, the ones that leave you with a tear in your eye and a smile on your face. The kind of book you don't want to end..... This is not my normal genre but I am so glad I gave this book a chance. This book is full of wonderfully colorful characters and the ups and downs of life and once you pick it up it will be hard to put down. Welcome to Blix Holliday's world.

ספר מקסים ומחמם את הלב. בתחילה חשבתי שהוא בז'אנר הרומאן הרומנטי אבל הוא לא בדיוק נופל לקטגוריה הזו והוא כל כך נעים לקריאה וגם משעשע שמפליא אותי אחרי כל כך הרבה ספרים בקטגוריה הזו

שהסופרת הצליחה לכתוב ספר כל כך מרענן.

מארני נישאת לנואה, אהובה מזה שנתיים. הוא עשיר בן למשפחה די פלצנית ובמסיבת ההיכרות עם משפחתו היא פוגשת בבליקס, הדודה האקסצנטרית שעוסקת בשידוכים, קסמים ואהבה אנושית פשוטה מלב אל לב.

אחרי שבועיים נואה מתגרש ממארני והיא פשוט יורדת מהפסים. כשהיא חוזרת לבית משפחתה באיווה, היא מקבלת מכתב מ

I really wanted to love this book, and there were aspects that were good, but there was too much happening in what could have been a much more streamlined/focused story. And Marnie was SO very unlikable to me?? I didn’t feel any sympathy for her, and honestly, I think she and Noah deserved each other. She def didn’t deserve Patrick. And wow, I hate how shabbily she treated poor Jeremy, the real underdog of the story.

Es un libro diferente, divertido, tierno y duro, hay amor peeero no es un libro romántico.

Cuando comencé a leer pensé que me iba a gustar mucho, que sería un libro épico, pero la verdad es que se fue desinchando muy rapidamente. La premisa no está mal pero creo que es la forma de narrar de la autora la que hizo que no me enganchara realmente.

Para mi gusto personal sobran muchas partes de pensamientos y faltan más diálogos.

Me esperaba sentir más cosas durante la lectura pero resultó que fue un

I think this is Maddie Dawson's best book to date. She's blended her characters, the setting, and the sparkles of magical realism into something greater than the sum of its parts. I know this is a world she conjured up. But I want to live there too. Even if it's as the crazy old lady next door.
