A Life Without You by Shari Low (Book Beginnings & Friday 56)

If you're in need of a good cry mixed with some good laughs, this is a book you'll want to get your hands on. It's sad and hopeful and angry and beautiful and .... well, it runs the whole gamut of emotions. I've really come to care about the characters and already know that I would love to see them again in another book. 

(A Life Without You is being released by Aria on April 1st 2017. I received a review copy via NetGalley.)

Friday 56 (today is 56% from the digital ARC) is hosted at Freda's Voice 
& Book Beginnings (share the first few sentences) is at Rose City Reader.

Touching, funny, and bittersweet, this is a story that will make you laugh, cry, and call your best friend to tell her you love her.Dee and Jen have been best friends since their days of teenage crushes, bad 90's make-up and huge hair.
They’ve passed every milestone of their lives together and now in their thirties own a successful boutique, sharing a bond that is as strong as the closest of sisters.
Until one day everything changes.
Dee is gone, killed by a reckless driver, leaving Jen to face the harsh reality of a world without her.
Jen vows to honour Dee’s dreams and take care of everything and everyone she loved.
Until she realises that sometimes the only way forward is to let go of the past.


  1. This sounds like a great story. Thanks for mentioning it.

  2. I am glad you loved it, but I don't like books that make me cry and try and avoid them when I can. :)


  3. Oh what fun! I love a good cry. And humour also helps. My book today is Dancing the Death Drill by Fred Khumalo.

  4. Aww she sounds sad at 56.
    This is on my TBR, so I hope you enjoyed it.

  6. Cute cover. I like it when a book can make me cry and smile. Words should bring out emotions. Sounds like a good one.

  8. Oh my, the F56 makes me feel grumpy.
