Review: A Year and Six Seconds by Isabel Gillies

A Year and Six Seconds
by Isabel Gillies

Publisher: Hyperion
Pages: 256
Format: audiobook

Goodreads:  "A Year and Six Seconds" is the true story of "New York Times"-bestselling memoirist Gillies's vibrant yet bumbling efforts to pick herself up after her husband leaves her for another woman--and then of how she stumbles upon true love.

Kritters Thoughts:  Isabel Gillies has lived a life and she has written a few books to tell stories.  In this book she takes the reader through her separation, divorce and a big move for her and her two young boys to New York City to her parents' apartment.  There were moments were this book was hard to read because this is a hard moment in her life, but it was easy to read because the reader knows that she will end up in a good place.   

It was so interesting to hear her journey and one woman's experience through divorce and having two young kids to bring on that journey.  To get a real personal inside look into how all of the life changes happening at once and how she responds to it was really interesting to read.   

I listened to this story/her story and although it isn't narrated by the author I stuck with it and enjoyed it.  This is the type of story that I enjoy most on audio, so I am glad that I read it in this way.  I want to read more books like this in this way!  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from Netgalley.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
