One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid was a guilty pleasure book I ordered from the library because I heard so much buzz about it and it sounded exactly like something I could sit on the couch and read for a couple of hours and forget about the world. And I was right.
So it's not that this is the best fiction in the world (it's not), but it's worth three hours on the couch snuggled under the blanket with a kitty on your lap. Or, if you're not kitty adjacent, at least a bit of mindlessness that will forever get you thinking about the saddest scene if all of cinema*.
*The scene in Cast Away when Tom Hanks and Helen Hunt realize they can't be together because she has a new family and a new life and he is ALL ALONE and OH MY GOD I sobbed as much at that scene as I did at the end The Notebook and the next time my husband is gone all day I'm going to watch these movies.
