book review: love with a chance of drowning.

from the first page, I was hooked. I could not get enough of {love with a chance of drowning}it was a true “page-turner”. and the absolute perfect summer read.

on the long drive from colorado back to iowa, in between keeping [J] company as he drove .. I read the entire book.

love with a chance of drowning //

there so many great things to say. it’s a memoir, written by a girl who very reluctantly sailed the pacific ocean with her boyfriend. she was terrified of the ocean. and was constantly plagued by sea sickness. I couldn’t believe it was a true story. she overcame so much. accomplished so much. went against all the naysayers. it was beautiful.

on the smallest of small scales, I thought of [J] & I’s camping adventure/road trip across the country. it was far from sailing the pacific ocean. but it was a feat for us. for me. we constructed our tent home each day. one that provided very little protection. did I mention it rained almost every single night? and we survived two hail storms in our tent. thankfully not one leak. we cooked meals over campfires, when the flames would cooperate. when they wouldn’t, we survived on snacks.

it was so minuscule compared to what the couple in the book accomplished. but it was a lot in our book. and it meant so much to read {love with a chance of drowning} when I did, on our trip back home. we saw so much. but it made us want to see so much more. and this book pretty much says: DO IT. don’t let anything stand in your way, especially yourself.

it’s a beautiful story. with so many great life lessons. and so inspiring.

I may even go against my unwritten rule and read it a second time. it’s that good.
