Goodreads:  Evie Rosen has had enough. She's tired of the partners at her law firm e-mailing her at all hours of the night. The thought of another online date makes her break out in a cold sweat. She's over the clever hashtags and the endless selfies. So when her career hits a surprising roadblock and her heart is crushed by Facebook, Evie decides it's time to put down her smartphone for good. (Beats stowing it in her underwear--she's done that too!)

And that's when she discovers a fresh start for real conversations, fewer distractions, and living in the moment, even if the moments are heartbreakingly difficult. Babies are born; marriages teeter; friendships are tested. Evie just may find love and a new direction when she least expects it, but she also learns that just because you unplug your phone doesn't mean you can unplug from life.



Kritters Thoughts:  Do you read lighter books when the weather starts heating up?  If your answer is a yes, then grab this book and throw it in your beach bag!  Evie Rosen is single and not quite happily single and when her job situation suddenly changes she is thrown into a spiral.  Where she used to find a lot of personal value in her job, she is now having to reevaluate and refocus her life.  With this, she is going to take an internet hiatus and put down the smartphone and log off of everything!

Evie was a great character to spend a book with.  She definitely had her moments and I wanted to tell her to buck up a few times, but it never lasted longer than I could handle!  I was so thankful that Evie was both in pursuit of a relationship and the right career path - the book didn't focus on one or the other and I liked that.  

After reading this book, I realized how much time I spend online and how I text my friends instead of call and just end up spending hours trolling around the internet and could be doing other things.  I made a pact with myself to limit my frivilous online time, but as my job revolves around the computer and online things, I can't do a complete cleanse!

I would absolutely recommend this book if you have been reading some heavy things and need a break from it all.  It was pure entertainment!
