I know that I post way too many book reviews on here, but I really like to read and sometimes my life is crazy and complex and I just need to get out of my head. The best way I find to do that is through a book. I had no shortage of books that I read in 2017 and I hope to surpass that goal in 2018. Here is what I know to be the last official book review of 2017. I just finished Bliss by Shay Mitchell and Michaela Blaney.
Bliss is the story of three 21 year old girls from Vancouver who set out on a year journey to find their bliss and their dreams. Sophia is an aspiring actress who finally by stroke of luck finally gets her big break, but it doesn’t come without some drama. Demi has always spent her time trying to build the perfect relationship and when that falls apart she needs to decide where to go and what to do. Lucky for her she’s always been an amazing cook. Leandra though she just finishes college has no desire in life except to be taken care, so after her trip to Thailand goes awry she figures out a way to make a living from it.
I thought that the switches between the three girls was extremely well done and could be easily followed. I loved and rooted for the three girls to get their dreams especially Sophia since she seemed so determined and things always seemed to be getting her down. I was also intrigued by Demi’s recipes throughout the book, though I haven’t had a chance to try them yet. Perhaps I will and that will be another post coming soon…
I liked the epilogue at the end of the book, but I would have like to have heard what happened to Demi’s relationship with her boss. (Ooops…spoiler?!?) I also would have loved to hear more about what happened with Leandra. Perhaps this is all for another book?!?
I would recommend that you pick this up if you are looking for a quick, fun beach read. Hopefully I’ll be back soon with another post.Let me know what you have been reading lately and if you have read this book and what you thought.
