Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme that was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. The meme is pretty easy to follow, to participate simply choose a random book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it!
Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
Chloe Brown is a chronically ill computer geek with a goal, a plan, and a list. After almost—but not quite—dying, she’s come up with seven directives to help her “Get a Life”, and she’s already completed the first: finally moving out of her glamorous family’s mansion. The next items?
• Enjoy a drunken night out.
• Ride a motorcycle.
• Go camping.
• Have meaningless but thoroughly enjoyable sex.
• Travel the world with nothing but hand luggage.
• And… do something bad.
But it’s not easy being bad, even when you’ve written step-by-step guidelines on how to do it correctly. What Chloe needs is a teacher, and she knows just the man for the job.
Redford ‘Red’ Morgan is a handyman with tattoos, a motorcycle, and more sex appeal than ten-thousand Hollywood heartthrobs. He’s also an artist who paints at night and hides his work in the light of day, which Chloe knows because she spies on him occasionally. Just the teeniest, tiniest bit.
But when she enlists Red in her mission to rebel, she learns things about him that no spy session could teach her. Like why he clearly resents Chloe’s wealthy background. And why he never shows his art to anyone. And what really lies beneath his rough exterior…
Why I Want to Read This
This book sounds cute, fun, eye-opening, and just entertaining!! I wanted to read this one the second I saw the cover (sorry not sorry). Now, I have been seeing it all over social media and just want to read it even more.
I also feel a connection to the idea of the book. I am not terminally ill, thankfully! However, I do find myself thinking I need to do more and have more experiences while I am young and healthy! I think I would thoroughly enjoy this story! It seems like it would be a light read but also seems like it has a lot of depth to it. I have also taken a real liking for chick-lit stories and that type of stuff so that makes me even more motivated to give this one a read!!
Has anyone read this or have it on their TBR? Let me know in the comments 🙂
