Hello again! Another book review for you today! It’s for the book Charming Falls Apart by Angela Terry.
*Disclaimer : I received a copy of this ebook for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Below you will find the description of the book provided by NetGalley followed by my personal review and star rating. Enjoy!
Allison James is a people pleaser and rule follower, but the day before her thirty-fifth birthday, that all backfires: she is unexpectedly fired from the public relations firm she’s worked at for twelve years, only to come home and find out that her fiancé has been sleeping with her maid of honor.
Feeling lost, Allison takes her friend Jordan’s advice and uses the time off for some self-reflection. Over the next few months, she devours countless self-help books (albeit skeptically), schedules a soul reading with an astrologer/psychic/magician, and goes on a meditation retreat in Costa Rica, where she finally starts to feel like she’s getting her groove back.
Back at home, her desire to escape the condo she once shared with her fiancé makes her a regular at the new coffeehouse in her neighborhood, where she finds some guidance from (and eye candy in) the attractive owner, Eric. Between Jordan’s support, the Barnes & Noble self-help aisle, and the Tao of Eric, Allison gradually discovers that her old life wasn’t as perfect as she thought—and that if she truly wants to find her happily-ever-after, she’s going to have to start writing her own rules.
My Review :
We meet Allison on what could possibly be the worst day of her life. Her fiancé dumps her for her maid of honor right after she found out she had been fired.
I could really resonate with the path she follows after. She wants to read all the books to help her through her problems – I do the same thing! (Side note : the self help section can be your best friend if you let it!)
Finding herself with a lot more free time on her hands, she finally has to dig deep and find out what it is that drives her…I mean, besides copious amounts of caffeine.
I loved this book so much that I could not put it down. Allison is a woman who is finally out to find what she loves instead of accommodating those around her all the time.
In my opinion, that takes true strength – especially if you are a people pleaser!
If you enjoy a self development journey – I’d highly recommend this book.
