Jenny's writing voice is so lovely and refreshingly unique. Even when she hits you hard with the emotions, the story is still light and enjoyable to read. This genre is the kind that I tend to run far, far away from so please trust me when I say these books are wonderful. I just so happen to be buying the series for a good friend of mine for Christmas.
Write on, Jenny!
TWTY took me back to my single days, to my twenties where life was a constant adventure … or one big hangover after another. Boy, have I been there.
But this is what makes her novel so great. How utterly fun and relatable it is. Unrequited love? Check. Laughing when it’s socially unacceptable? Check. Missing the way things used to be? Check. Awkward relationships with parents? Check.
Jenny Bravo hit it out of the park with this one.
Like Jenny's other books, That Was the Year (also fondly known as #TATM2) smacks readers with #AllTheFeels. In this sequel of These Are the Moments, Reese explores adulting as a less than composed twenty-something as she takes responsibility for her actions and figures out who's truly part of her inner circle. The dialogue-focused writing draws focus toward the characters, while the dual timeline gives readers a chance to see the heart behind Reese's and her friends' actions.
That Was the Year was an enjoyable read that I'd recommend to anyone entering, experiencing, or exiting their twenties 'cause we can all relate.
The writing feels so close a relatable, despite being in third-person. The writing is kind of lyrical in a way. The emotions and stage of life the main character is going through feel very real to me, considering I am near the age range of the characters (I'm 22). This is a story of more than just a rekindled romance, it's about a person pulling themselves up and feeling confident. As the book progresses, the main character starts to realize her self-worth. A lot of twenty-somethings going through a quarter-life crisis could relate to the main character.
The novel is similar to the first book in that it has flashback chapters scattered throughout the book. Having these really gave a full view of the main character's life. I loved it.
I have never read a more frenetic novel…ever! I will be honest. I stopped and started the book four times before I finally took time to get into it and when I did…it was so much fun! I realized about halfway through the book that I might have been this girl when I was in my early twenties. I hope not, because Reese is a hot mess!
I laughed. I cringed. I even cried a little at one point. But, most of all, I am so happy I read this. It is a fun ride for sure!
