Marriage Vacation Reviews
As a huge fan of Younger when I heard about this book I nearly fainted. Literally nearly fainted. There have been only a select few (I can only think of Charm from All My Children) that have been featured on a show and created in real life. Being able to read page 58 and understanding even more about what they have been speaking about and will speak about since this book will play heavily into this season is just so cool. I bought it while watching the first episode this season. When it arrived ...more
This book was such a nice quick read! I’m a huge fan of the show younger and was very excited when it was announced that they actually were releasing the book from the show! While I think even those who aren’t fans of the show (which if you haven’t watched it you really should because it’s SO good!) will enjoy this book, those of us who have watched the show will enjoy all the little things added to this book that connect to the series. Now we’re just left to wonder if the ending of this book wi ...more
If you love the TV Land series Younger, this book is a MUST READ. It's a great tie-in to the characters and storyline. If you're not familiar, Younger is about a 40-something year old woman named Liza who pretends to be 20-something in order to get a job at a publishing house after her divorce. Based on a novel, the series was developed for television by Darren Star, also famous for Sex and the City and Melrose Place. Liza succeeds (for the most part), but has to play the part of a millennial in ...more
I mean I'm very #teamcharles but I was interested in reading this as an extension of the fictional world of Younger. It was a quick, fun read, although not well written enough to be as amazing as Liza sells it to be in the show? (Though page 58 lives up to the hype.) It's a catch-22. Also, this seems like a weird Millenial Press book, considering it's about a woman older than that demographic? It seems more of a fit for women actually Liza's age. But, I digress, no use unnecessarily poking the p ...more
As you may know, I am a huge fan of the show Younger. When I found out that Marriage Vacation was going to become a real book, I was excited and nervous. I know in general that when books are tie-ins for TV, they aren't always very good.
This book is actually surprisingly good. It's a book I would've enjoyed if I had just encountered it randomly, with no idea it came from a TV show. It's really fun. I also like the way it gave us more insight into Pauline. (As backstory, if you watch the show, y ...more
This was a fun book that definitely lived up to what I was expecting! I'm a big fan of Younger on television and was thrilled to hear that Marriage Vacation was going to be a real book. I loved being able to take what I know from the show and apply it to the book, but at the same time, if you've never seen the show before, you'll still be able to enjoy this book like you would any other (though it may tempt you into watching the show!).
I am not a fan of Pauline in the show, so I appreciated this ...more
Let me start by saying that I don’t watch Younger. Maybe if I did, I wouldn’t mind the frustrating story, illogical plot, and mediocre writing.
But like I said, I don’t watch Younger.
I’m going to be totally honest: this book review isn’t totally unbiased. You see, I am a huge fan of the tv show Younger and have literally counted down the minutes until this book was released. I just HAD to know Pauline’s (er, Kate’s) story of her year away from Charles (er, Karl?). If you’re not a fan of the show, I’m not sure how you will feel about this novel, but if you’re anything like me, it’s exactly what I needed it to be. Don’t get me wrong-it’s not exactly deep, or thought provoking ...more
