Book Review

Are you in need of a good book?

Do you have 2 days to spend constantly reading?

If you answered yes to both of those questions, I have the perfect book for you.

The First Husband by Laura Dave.

Before I start, this cover means nothing to me about the book. Have you read this book? If you have, can you explain why they used this cover? It doesn't make any sense to me.

But, moving on.....the book's main character is Annie Adams who is a travel writer living in California with her boyfriend Nick. Nick turns into a loser - for lack of a better word - and moves out of their apartment leaving Annie searching for her home. She bumps into a chef Griffin who turns her world upside down. But then, as all love stories go, Nick shows back up in Annie's life and you find yourself become physically angry with Annie and some of the choices she seems to make.

This is the perfect book to read if it's starting to snow in your town and you can think of nothing more you would like to do than cozy up with a good book.

My favorite place this book and I traveled to together was the bar in the Peninsula Hotel. I got off work early and was supposed to meet friends there at 6, so instead of shopping around Michigan Ave, my Nook and I found a cozy spot in the bar, by the fire place, ordered a martini, and devoured each and every page for 2 hours straight. It was bliss.


  1. That night of reading at the Peninsula sounds great. :) I will add this one to my reading list. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This sounds like something I would love. Adding it to my "To Read" list right now! Thanks!

  3. I've read this book! Definitely a great and easy read! P.S. Can we have a Peninsula date soon!?
