Hey guys! I’m trying something new today! I’m so excited to show this to you at the same time nervous. I’m still posting my review below at the same time I’m also posting a video I made where I talked about Landline. I might be saying the same things but the only difference is I’m talking with the other one and the other one is written.. So whichever you prefer! 🙂


If you’re on youtube! I’d appreciate a follow back too! 🙂


Here’s what you have to know about Landline by Rainbow Rowell.



Landline by Rainbow Rowell

July 18, 2014 from St. Martin’s Press

copy received from publisher from Book Expo America 2014


Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it’s been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now.

Maybe that was always beside the point.

Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect to him to pack up the kids and go home without her.

When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .

Is that what she’s supposed to do?

Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?



my thoughts

Is there anything this girl writes I don’t love? probably not. and I hope will ever be. She’s definitely included on my auto by author list. As in if she has any book that comes out, I’ll automatically buy it.
Her stories are just so realistic and romantic. i love how she’s not afraid to lay it all out there. complications of relationships: whether family or romantic ones or even to fictional characters (Fangirl).
I admit at first I was a bit hesitant to read her first adult book [OOPS! not her First adult book, but SECOND. Attachments was her first] , afraid it won’t live up to her YA books. because there are some authors who flop whenever they change the genre of their writing. BUT NO. it’s definitely adult base on the age of the characters but it’s all clean and fun so you young people can definitely read it. And it’ll do you good inspiring you to have faith in love and don’t waste your life wasting away. 🙂
