"If I could Turn Back Time" - Beth Harbison

Hello fellow bibliophiles! I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Thanks NetGalley for the recent ARC I received, If I Could Turn Back Time by Beth Harbison! This book was better than others that I have recently read (see Saving Grapes)! The story describes a situation that I feel most people have thought about once or twice in their lifes as they get older.

The story starts out with Ramie Phillips is a 38 year old, single woman celebrating her birthday with friends. As her friends are all moving on their lifes, getting married, having kids, etc, she feels that she is "stuck." As Ramie goes to jump off the diving board on the boat they are on, she falls and hits her head. When Ramie wakes up, she is transported back to her 18 year old self.  From there, Ramie starts to analyze her life and question if she can change the present. Ramie moves throughout time and realizing things about her self and life in general as she is transported on this journey.

I think everyone has had these thoughts in their live. Would this or that have been different if you had done things differently? How would it have affected your life today? A lot of time it is hard to accept things in our lives. Coming to the realization that everything will work out in the end is not always an easy task, but we have to live with our decisions no matter how it turns out. At that time, we thought what we were doing was the right thing to do. Nothing we do can change it. Live with no regrets. You will be happier in the end. Overall this was decent book. It has a great meaning and easily relatable to all people. There were a few instances that lacked enough emotion or "freak out", I mean wouldn't you freak out if you woke up as an 18 year old in your parent's house?? Overall, good book. As always, feel free to share any recommendations, responses, or comments.

Happy reading fools :)
