Book Summary from Amazon:
In Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty turns her unique, razor-sharp eye towards three seemingly happy families.
Sam and Clementine have a wonderful, albeit, busy life: they have two little girls, Sam has just started a new dream job, and Clementine, a cellist, is busy preparing for the audition of a lifetime. If there’s anything they can count on, it’s each other.
Clementine and Erika are each other’s oldest friends. A single look between them can convey an entire conversation. But theirs is a complicated relationship, so when Erika mentions a last minute invitation to a barbecue with her neighbors, Tiffany and Vid, Clementine and Sam don’t hesitate. Having Tiffany and Vid’s larger than life personalities there will be a welcome respite.
Two months later, it won’t stop raining, and Clementine and Sam can’t stop asking themselves the question: What if we hadn’t gone?
In Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty takes on the foundations of our lives: marriage, sex, parenthood, and friendship. She shows how guilt can expose the fault lines in the most seemingly strong relationships, how what we don’t say can be more powerful than what we do, and how sometimes it is the most innocent of moments that can do the greatest harm.
I’m a fan of Liane Moriarty after reading The Husband’s Secret, so I was extra excited about this book when I saw it was in the box!
The first chapter immediately sucked me in, and while I’m seeing this book doesn’t have as good of reviews as her other books, I already need to know what happened at this barbecue!
Franklin Street Studio Crepe de Chine Scarf – Value $38
This scarf is hand painted! I love the watercolor look of this scarf, and the semi-sheer material is a perfect match for the colors. It goes well with a Summer box too, but I’m already in fall mode, so this scarf may have to wait a while to be worn!
ONA Cookies in Maple Pecan and Brownie – Value $6 total
Yay for gluten-free and dairy-free cookies! These cookies are made with almond flour, pecans, maple syrup, coconut oil, and honey. I liked both (these packages were empty shortly after this picture was taken), but the Maple Pecan was my favorite.
My husband and I are both big iced tea drinkers, so this is another win in the box for us! It’s just pure 100% organic black tea, and I even like it unsweetened.
Each tea bag produces 2 quarts of tea. (There are 6 bags.)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $80 (that’s with the discounted Amazon sale price of the box). I think that’s a good value if you sign up with the $5 off for life coupon ($60 a month). Cozy Reader Club is still on the high-end in terms of cost for a monthly book box, so it probably isn’t for everyone, but I think they do an excellent job delivering on their promise of what you can expect in a box, and everything always feels special! This box is definitely about the experience!
