BT Urruela has written a story that will draw you in and have you feeling all the emotions of his characters, and especially those of Gavin. His characters are real and relateable and ones you’ll want to know better.
When an author writes a story, they include a piece of themselves in at least one of their characters and I have no doubt that Mr. Urruela has included a HUGE chunk of himself in Gavin, and for that I say, “thank you”. It’s not easy to cut yourself open and reveal those raw places inside, and I respect you for doing just that so others can see they truly are not alone. I consider Thirty Days to be BT's best work to date.
This will walk you through Gavin's life and the struggle of trying to juggle dates, life and what family he has left, along with navigating through his depression and writer's block. Will Gavin complete the challenge and find love during the process or will serial dating backfire on him?
Thirty Days is a great read. Very well written. I will purchase a paper copy for my bookshelf in addition to my kindle version.
We meet Gavin when he is a very low point. He's struggling with heartache, depression and PTSD. We are taken on his thirty journey in the world of swipe dating. Along the way we learn Gavin's weakness, fears, and sorrows, but we also get to see his amazing friendships, the love of family and strength he didn't know he had.
I cheered when Gavin gave a much deserved FU, I cried when he was heart broken, I wore a silly grin when things took an turn for the better and I even did a little fist pump for his Grandma. When it ended it felt like saying goodbye to an old friend.
This is an amazing journey written beautifully.
"We live our lives with these filters we develop from past experiences. It bleeds over into everyday life, and what should be new, refreshing, exciting experiences, when treated and viewed through these filters, become quite the opposite."
Every word true. I think this may be my new favorite. Even if it did make me ugly cry.

This 'quiet' story is semi-autobiographical and as such feels real, I loved the flowing writing style which is both humorous and poignant: there is no 'instalove' or 'wham bam thank you ma'am'!!
The blurb explains the premise of the story and I don't want to comment on the plot as I would inevitably reveal spoilers: Gavin is flawed, like all of us and can be defeatist; he has a great group of friends in Bobby, Javon and Andy (he's hilarious!), who he discovers know more about him than he thought and Nurse Jackie seems to be a bit if a mother figure that he lacks. At one point, I was going for a 4* review; I was getting pretty annoyed with Gavin covering his bases, guessing what was going to come. However, him FINALLY dealing with 'the ghost of fiancee's past' and Bobby's reaction to it was great. The sadness towards to end was tempered by reconnecting with Jared, Gavin's surge of creativity and him confronting his mistake of omission.
I don't know if a follow up book is on the horizon: I would love to know what happens next, particularly if Gavin is able to rid himself of the two 'crutches' that he relies on; one that he acknowledges, the other, not so much.
Conclusion - I am a massive re-reader of books (to the bewilderment of many!!) and at the end of the day, that is how I make my final judgement. Would I re-read this book? Absolutely!!
