Length - Novel (105 pages)
TBR Reviewer - Daniella
A Thirty-Something Girl by L.M. Stull is a beautifully written and captivating story about Hope. All her life she has lived a lie, living the life she thinks the people around her expect from her. She hides her real self in an attempt to please everyone else. When she can´t keep the façade up any longer, everything comes crashing down around her in one big mess. In this story, we get to follow Hope on her climb up from rock bottom.
The characters in this story are very well developed. It feels very realistic that there are no quick fixes and although Hope is moving in the right direction, it is two steps forward and one step back. I really liked how Hope met Sam and how their relationship evolved. How these two broken people find comfort and strength in each other is delightfully written. I was very caught up in Hope and Sam’s individual stories and their story together, which was why I was disappointed with the last third of the book. Things have been carefully set up
throughout the book then all of a sudden multiple big things are happening very fast and they are wrapped up and handed to the reader without any of the emotion and beautiful writing seen in the first part. Therefore I rated this 3.5 stars but I would recommend A Thirty-Something Girl, so I increased it to 4.
I think the writer has a lot of potential and has the rare ability to write with a lot of strong and dark emotion making the reader feel both the sadness and the happiness without wallowing in despair. If the ending hadn´t been so rushed I think this would have been a five star read for me. This is still a very insightful book well worth reading.
