This is a weekly meme where any one can choose a random book from their Goodreads TBR and highlight it. Once you choose a book and create your post, make sure you link and reference the creator, @Lauren’s Page Turners. Eventually, I will try to find a rhyme or reason to my choices, but for now, each week will feature a random one that I mean to read soon!
This Week’s Selection:
The Road Trip by Beth O’Leary
What if the end of the road is just the beginning?
Four years ago, Dylan and Addie fell in love under the Provence sun. Wealthy Oxford student Dylan was staying at his friend Cherry’s enormous French villa; wild child Addie was spending her summer as the on-site caretaker. Two years ago, their relationship officially ended. They haven’t spoken since.
Today, Dylan’s and Addie’s lives collide again. It’s the day before Cherry’s wedding, and Addie and Dylan crash cars at the start of the journey there. The car Dylan was driving is wrecked, and the wedding is in rural Scotland–he’ll never get there on time by public transport.
So, along with Dylan’s best friend, Addie’s sister, and a random guy on Facebook who needed a ride, they squeeze into a space-challenged Mini and set off across Britain. Cramped into the same space, Dylan and Addie are forced to confront the choices they made that tore them apart–and ask themselves whether that final decision was the right one after all.
I actually first heard of Beth O’Leary as The Flatshare was highly recommended to me. Time got away from me and I had it on the backburner. When I received an ARC of The Switch, the author came back on my radar. I loved that novel, but, unfortunately, The Flatshare went on the backburner again. Now with the newer release of The Road Trip, I weighed the two novels and decided to go with The Road Trip first as it sounded slightly more intriguing. If this one turns out, I am hopeful that I will finally get to The Flatshare and see if Beth O’Leary will continue to be an author for me or if The Switch was the only one.
