Goodreads Summary: What if you were on the cusp of marrying the guy of your dreams and reaching that career goal you set for yourself, only for all of it to be taken away in one fell swoop?
What if this all happened a month before you turned 30?
This is the story of Jill Stevens, who after moving back home, finds a list she made in high school of thirty things she wanted to accomplish before her thirtieth birthday.
With a month left and hardly anything crossed off her list, she teams up with old friends to accomplish as much as she can before the big 3-0. Along the way, she discovers her true self and realizes it’s not about the material successes in life but the journey.
Review: I received a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I decided to read this book because it almost seemed perfect since I will be turning 30 this year. It sounded like it would have a really good message. It was a very cute, fun read and it was definitely a quick read. While I loved the idea of the main character, Jill, trying to complete this list of hers before she turned 30, there were a lot of cheesy cliche moments that kept me from loving this book. Don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy reading it. I loved the message of taking the time to actually live your life rather than focus too hard on one area of life, namely a career. I think one of my favorite bits of this message was when Jill’s mother asked her if any of her coworkers from the law firm had bothered to call and check in to see how she was doing. She spent at least 80 hours a week with these people and they could care less about how she is doing after being fired. I’ve always been a person who loves high school sweetheart romances so I loved seeing Chris come back into Jill’s life. Overall, this was a very cute book with a great message behind it. I liked it but wasn’t blown away by it.
