Review: I Liked My Life
By Abby Fabiaschi
Genre Adult Fiction
Alternating narratives from a husband, his daughter, and the wife and mother that committed suicide tell the story of a women who watches her family from the other side deal with their grief and determines to find the perfect replacement for herself.
I found the perfect wife for my husband.
I just couldn't resist this one. A story about a woman who committed suicide and is trying to find the perfect replacement from the other side? Add the seemingly untrue title and that bizarre cover and I'm in.
There's nothing quite as wonderful as fully met expectations. Am I right? Life is full of disappointments and unmet expectations so I always try to keep mine low. But I often find myself getting way too excited for a book. I get the whole thing so worked up in my mind that by the time I read it I'm usually left deflated and unsatisfied. For the first time in a long time I went into a book with freakishly high expectations and was absolutely delighted to find them met.
I really loved this book. It was exactly what I wanted. It met my criteria trifecta of great writing, great characters and great story AND won the coveted fifth star that determines a new favorite that I'll definitely be rereading.
