Reading Challenge - Book 23

What a powerful, fabulous book. I laughed and cried out loud. Life and Other Near-Death Experiences is a book I won from another blog, that ended up satisfying the fourth item on my reading challenge list - a book that was published this year (2015).

Libby Miller has always been an unwavering optimist—but when her husband drops a bomb on their marriage the same day a doctor delivers devastating news, she realizes her rose-colored glasses have actually been blinding her.

With nothing left to lose, she abandons her life in Chicago for the clear waters and bright beaches of the Caribbean for what might be her last hurrah. Despite her new sunny locale, her plans go awry when she finds that she can’t quite outrun the past or bring herself to face an unknowable future. Every day of tropical bliss may be an invitation to disaster, but with her twin brother on her trail and a new relationship on the horizon, Libby is determined to forget about fate. Will she risk it all to live—and love—a little longer?
I would highly recommend this book. Libby is an incredibly likable character, and I could easily imagine myself dreaming of doing some of the crazy stuff she does. Who knows what could happen when you feel you have nothing left to lose?
