The Life list isn't just about a girl going through a divorce, a late 20's crisis, or even coping with her friends death. It's truly a story about growth and change and facing the hard stuff. It's heartbreaking to me how many people find themselves in Chrissy's place staying where they are because it's easier instead of going out and taking a risk on happy. This book is so brutally honest in that it really makes you look at yourself. I love that! I love a book that makes me think and question, this one does that well!
Not many books reach me enough to make me cry, but by the end this one did. And while I was disappointed in Chrissy for her poor choices, by the end of the book I was sincerely rooting for her and her finding happiness. It's truly what everyone should be seeking and this book is refreshingly honest about that. After finishing book 1, I immediately bought book 2! I will be adding Chrissy Anderson to my favorite author's list and will be watching to see what she comes up with next!
Anyway, with that said, I thought I would give this book a shot. It sounded interesting, and well, why the hell not. So, first chapter into it I was already annoyed with Chrissy (The main character.) I felt she was way to materialistic and shallow. I kept reading though, because I still was giving the book a shot.
Farther into this, I started to feel like I could relate (in someways) with Chrissy. She was human, she made mistakes and was dealing with the consequences. She was figuring out, that her life wasn't as perfect as she made it out to be. She fell in love, even if that love was not with her husband, she found love that a lot of people can only hope and wish for. Do I agree with how she strung along Leo? No, but that's because I have been there done that. It isn't pretty, and the guilt associated with it isn't pretty either.
I gave this book 5 stars because well, this book made me laugh, roll my eyes, cry and think. It made me want to come back to reading about her "train-wreck." I felt like I could associate aspects of my life with aspects of hers. I am looking forward to getting the second book in this trilogy, and perhaps when the third one comes out, that book as well.
