A big hit for Millennial Print. Didn't love the ending though.

I’m going to be totally honest: this book review isn’t totally unbiased. You see, I am a huge fan of the tv show Younger and have literally counted down the minutes until this book was released. I just HAD to know Pauline’s (er, Kate’s) story of her year away from Charles (er, Karl?). If you’re not a fan of the show, I’m not sure how you will feel about this novel, but if you’re anything like me, it’s exactly what I needed it to be. Don’t get me wrong-it’s not exactly deep, or thought provoking ...more

I really did not expect to enjoy a TV show tie-in book this much... I just picked it up because I thought it would be a fun "beach read". But this book is really well written, and had surprising depth! If you don't know already: in the TV show "Younger", which is set in the New York publishing world, a side character publishes a book based on her marriage/split to one of the main characters. (And in Season 5, she goes on a book tour for this book). I love the show, but expected this ghost-writte ...more

As you may know, I am a huge fan of the show Younger. When I found out that Marriage Vacation was going to become a real book, I was excited and nervous. I know in general that when books are tie-ins for TV, they aren't always very good. 

This book is actually surprisingly good. It's a book I would've enjoyed if I had just encountered it randomly, with no idea it came from a TV show. It's really fun. I also like the way it gave us more insight into Pauline. (As backstory, if you watch the show, y

DNF, couldn't get behind Pauline as the protagonist. I'm not a huge fan of her in the show, and although the book made her as sympathetic as possible, I couldn't put the show to the side while reading it. I think I would've really liked it otherwise!

I mean I'm very #teamcharles but I was interested in reading this as an extension of the fictional world of Younger. It was a quick, fun read, although not well written enough to be as amazing as Liza sells it to be in the show? (Though page 58 lives up to the hype.) It's a catch-22. Also, this seems like a weird Millenial Press book, considering it's about a woman older than that demographic? It seems more of a fit for women actually Liza's age. But, I digress, no use unnecessarily poking the p ...more
