Who are some of your favorite literary best friends? My favorite are the unshakably loyal friendships (like Kell and Rhys from ADSOM) . Earlier this week I decided to take a break from “The Beekeeper of Aleppo” because I had begun to spend too much time putting myself in the situation of the characters instead of reading. I thought I’d pick up “Hello Girls” (gifted from @katherinetegenbooks ) for something lighter before finishing Beekeeper. . I had not read the synopsis, but Emily Henry is an autobuy/autoread for me, so I didn’t even need anything more to go on. And MAN was this book NOT the happy book I misjudged it for by the cover. hahaha. But I blew through the entire thing in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down. . We follow two best friends, Winona Olsen and Lucille Pryce, on one crazy road trip. Winona lives a rich and perfect life with a famous weatherman father, who no one knows is mentally and physically abusive. Lucille is just trying to keep her family afloat by making money her brother steals for drugs and supporting her mother who doesn’t care. I spent much of this story so angry and sad for Winona and Lucille, and also so glad to be reading their journey as two ride or die best friends. There was a point about half way into their trip where it did feel a little over the top, which I think fits the description of “dark comedy” that I’ve seen floating around about it. But overall, I liked this book and this story for what I got out of it. Life can be crappy and you’re going to make stupid mistakes along the way, but FIGHT for yourself and your friends and the life you deserve. That even if you only have one person in your life, that’s all you need. . #hellogirls #emilyhenry #brittanycavallaro #darkcomedy #bookface #shelfie
