Just One More Chapter

Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.

I'm just trying to light up the world as much as I can one SciFi/paranormal/fantasy/space opera/time travel book at a time.

The Female of the Species - Mindy McGinnis

This was BRUTAL!! This book was raw and beautiful and will stay with you for a VERY long time! I love, love, LOVED the writing which was stunning and real. I'll admit it, I'm here, just having finished this book, and I'm broken into pieces crying. It's not that civilized, sniffling, dab at your eyes and it's done kind of crying. It's the soul abraded, snot dripping cry that leads my hubby to ask why I choose to read things that tear me apart emotionally.


This was told by 3 different characters perspectives, all of whom I fell in love with which is extremely rare. Usually I am skipping through one characters ramblings just to get back to another I liked best. That was definitely not the case here, even the supporting cast were amazing. I might go as far as to say that this contemporary story has some of the best character development I have read in a LONG time! All three MCs were human, strong yet weak at the very same time. They were complex and realistic and ultimately it HAD to be done with dueling POVs..I can not picture the story working better any other way. If you can imagine it, amongst all of the griminess and heartache there was romance and thankfully it was sans insta-love. I want to tell you to run out and read this asap because of the breadth of its beauty and the skill in which it was executed...BUT it feels weird telling you to do so because I know that the subject matter is merciless and that you too will be lacerated and laid bare...a puddle of sobbing feels. I don't want my GR friends to hurt but if you're okay with a bit of pain and some tear stained pillows then I HIGHLY recommend this book!!
