    Anthropology of an American Girl de Hilary Thayer Hamann (BookshelfMonstrosity)

    The Love Season de Elin Hilderbrand (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Both novels are character-driven and focus on the lives and relationships of two main women. Though the overall tone is uplifting, there are somber, emotional moments. There is a focus on sharing and resolving issues from the past.

I’m not crying, you are ( )

Was this a remake/extension of a Harlequin romance? or a YA teen angst novel? I could not get myself to finish it after about 150 pages. I don't understand how it could get five stars from so many readers. Triteness to the extreme. ( )

What I liked: Strong friendship, caring mother, messed-up mother, nostalgia. What I didn't like: boring middle part, woe-is-me attitude, forgiving the unforgivable, the writing was below par. I became bored after the pair graduated college. I skipped a large chunk and just skimmed through the middle to find out how they became estranged, as hinted in the introduction, then I read the last few chapters, just to finish it. Overall, I would not recommend it. ( )

Thanks to Book Club Cookbook and St. Martin's Griffin for a gifted copy. All comments and opinions are my own.

This was my first Kristin Hannah novel. It took me a little over 170 pages before I actually wanted to keep reading instead of feeling it was a duty to find out what everyone was raving about. This is the story of two friends who meet in 1974 when in middle school, and remain "best friends forever" for the next 30 years. I had read nearly half the novel before I began to care about these characters. Now that I've finished it, I'm still not sure how much I actually liked the book and if I would recommend it.

Themes of friendship and families, loyalty and trust are portrayed against the music, clothes, hairstyles, and culture of the 1970s and 1980s. The two girls are very different in personality and background, yet come to depend on each other for support like only best friends can. An additional theme that was repeatedly pondered by the characters was career vs. stay-at-home motherhood. I liked that the author didn't preach about this, and left the debate open-ended.

By the end of the novel I was sobbing - both because of the plot as well as because Tully and Kate's relationship reminded me of my own long-term friendship that started in high school, continued for decades and is now sadly lukewarm.

To sum it up, this is a novel of mothers and daughters, laughter and tears, love and loyalty, and the kind of friendship that only women can provide for each other. ( )

This book is dedicated to "us." The girls. Friends who see one another through the hard times, big and small, year in and year out. You know who you are. Thanks. And to my mom, who inspires so many of my novels, this one most of all.

"That was the thing about best friends. Like sisters and mothers, they could piss you off and make you cry and break your heart, but in the end, when the chips were down, they were there, making you laugh even in your darkest hours. "
"Sometimes being a good friend means saying nothing."
"Thoughts - even fears - were airy things, formless until you made them solid with your voice and once given that weight, they could crush you."
"The at-home mother's life: it was a race with no finish line."
