    Emma London is kicked out her home as pregnant teen. It particularly stings, because when Emma's mom died when she was a kid, her dad dropped her on his own mom's doorstop and never looked back. Genevieve, Emma's wealthy grandmother, took her in and raised her, but she never had much l...

    How do you review a book that moved you beyond words time and time again? How do you do justice to a story that you never wanted to end and nearly cried that you had to say goodbye to these characters? I'm going to do my best... Kristan Higgins was a new to me author last year when ...

    This was darker than Higgins? previous novels. She used to be known more for light, funny romances, but I enjoy her turn to complex women?s fiction like this one. Emma has not had it easy. Her mother committed suicide when she was eight. Her father, who?d been spoiled all his...

    Kristan Higgins has always been a favorite author of mine. With her ability to deliver strong fleshed out characters that you truly want to know and her emotional and yet charming heroines and witty dialogue, her books are just so much fun to devour and are always so much more than a f...

    I won this book on a Goodreads first reads giveaway. I?m not really sure what to say about this other than I thought it was (as the stars say) ?okay?. There was a lot going on here, which I?m not entirely sure was a good thing. Somehow this book managed to feel both over-...

    By anyone?s measure, Emma London has had a tough start. Her mother committed suicide when she was eight years old, her father literally abandoned her to be raised by his wealthy mother, Genevieve who threw her out when she became pregnant at eighteen. She left Connecticut for Chicago...

    Life and Other Inconveniences was a touching, emotional story that felt so true to life for me. I don?t know about you, but sometimes it?s hard dealing with family. Growing up wasn?t smooth sailing for me or my family. We had tragedy, and it affected all of us differently. So, wh...

    4 STARS Tough one. Really well done, but depressing as hell. What a cast of characters. Crazy though it seems, I ended up liking them all. Well, all except maybe two, and those two know who they are. The romance factor in this book was almost nonexistent. So if you're looking for ...

    Kristan Higgins has become one of my favorite authors over the past couple of years because of her ability to always explore deep topics with grace and humor, while realistically portraying her character's feelings of sadness, anger, hope, forgiveness, and love. I'm always left reading...

    At some point, we have to acknowledge that relationships are messier and far more complicated than any romantic comedy would have us believe, that's just life. And here, with her 19th release, Kristan Higgins does just that. Life and Other Inconveniences quells those idealistic notions...

    3.5 Stars Life and Other Inconveniences is my second book I have read by Kristan Higgins and I have to admit my first was a miss for me. I was not all that excited to read this one but decided to give it a try after it was offered to me. Well, I was completely surprised and felt lik...

    Emma hasn?t had the easiest of lives. After her mother committed suicide when she was 8-years old, Emma?s dad dropped her off at her grandmother, Genevieve?s house and never returned for her. Emma?s relationship with her grandmother was never warm or nurturing by any means, but...

    I was slow to like this but it ended up being quite meaningful. This really dived in deep with the complexity of family relationships and the effects parenting could have on a child. Higgins showed the conflicting emotions of loving someone who should?ve treated you better. There ...

    4.5 stars. This was my first Kristan Higgins book and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved it! I listened to this on audible books and it had several narrators that did such a fantastic job. She writes in such a way that you get very invested in each character and it is such ...

    Kristan Higgins is one of my favorite authors and she keeps getting better and better. Her last few books have been a little more serious in tone than her earlier fun light hearted romances. But they still have those lovable relatable characters that draw you in to the story. They also...

    Authentic characters, multi-generational family dynamics and three strong women. Told from different perspectives, I really got to know the characters and their motivation. The story had a more serious side than I expected, but also some lighthearted moments as well. There is plenty...

    After reading Good Luck With That and really enjoying it. It's a 5 star book. I pick up a few more of Higgins older books but was not impressed with them like I was Good Luck With That. So I thought well maybe this new one will be a great read. Wrong! Many times I wanted to put it down...
