    “Maybe I am different Being different isn’t the worst thing” Ms Everything is just that—she’s everything and every woman She’s the collective voice of you me our mothers grandmothers aunts sisters friends neighbors and acuaintances She’s the gamut of emotions triumphs sacrifices and heartbreak that feed into the way we view the world She’s a piece of fiction that hits home with the notion that self discovery is a continuous journey for each one of usIn a story that spans generations Jennifer Weiner taps into the heart of life From the expectations we set for ourselves to the varying degrees of reality that often take shape insteadOn the longer side this novel follows two sisters—Jo and Bethie—for the entirety of their existence From childhood to the trying times of adolescence and the woes of adulthood their dueling storylines bring forth topics likely to resonate with women from all backgrounds The beauty of the extensive timeline is witnessing the influence of an ever changing society on the hopes and dreams of the two sisters Jennifer Weiner is an author that hits the high notes when it comes to relatability From the characters she presents on the page to the topics that formulate her words speak the language of everyday women Chances are we’ve all faced challenges similar to Jo and Bethie or know someone who has There are those times when we read to breathe in a different life than our own And others when we seek out novels like Mrs Everything an experience that offers a sense of solidarity and sisterhood A HUGE thanks to Atria for providing a copy in exchange for my honest thoughts ♥

    Please God or whoever's up there please just give me enough time to make it rightFor me this was a 3 star read with a 5 star message so I went with a 4 star rating It's the type of book that you want to say so much about and also nothing at all You want to say so much because it's a very timely message and is being published at the most opportune moment In a world in the midst of the #metoo movement and feminism on the rise it's the type of book that women can rally behind and promote with ease It's also a book that I'm struggling to talk about because it's an epic sweeping saga of sisters mothers and daughters and to divulge any details would be to take away from your own reading experience In the forward of my arc Jennifer Weiner writes a preface that describes where the inspiration for this story came from Her own mother was born in the 1940's married a man and had children divorced him and ended up falling in love with a woman I think the vulnerability and raw appeal to this novel is the fact that it covers a lifetime not just a year or two and the choice to delve into something deeper and a little serious was an excellent choice for the author You'll laugh you'll cry but you won't forget Mrs Everything after you finish it Highly recommended for those looking for a relevant historical fiction that expresses the journey of what it means to be female past and present Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy

    “She wondered whether they would ever not try to have it all and do it all and do all of it flawlessly Would the day ever come when simply doing your best would be enough?” Wife mother daughter sister friend aunt caretaker career women Mrs Everything attempts to cover it all Spanning decades and told through the alternating narrative of two sisters Jo and Bethie who grew up in Detroit in the 1950s Weiner explores the complex relationship between women while at the same time examining and subverting gender norms Mrs Everything tries to be everything family saga drama women’s fiction and a feminist manifesto At times Mrs Everything struggles to find its place but there is an ease about the narrative that draws the reader into Jo and Bethie’s lives Both sisters’ stories are eually interesting The lengthy timeline allows the reader to watch Jo and Bethie struggle with finding fulfillment It’s a long journey towards self acceptance Mrs Everything serves as a tribute to the brave women who try to do it all and think that they have to do it all In the end it had me ugly crying as I reached the final pages and said goodbye to Jo and Bethie “I want to be brave like that” I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and Atria Books in exchange for an honest review

    35 rounded up 4 in the name of bellybuttons sack dresses obladi oblada life goes bra la la how the life goes on stars I’m going back and forth between 3 and 4 so much time normally I’m not defined as decisive person but at least 150 pages should be edited I lose my objectivity when I’m reading a women power story so I turned into a generous grader That’s my weaknessThis book might be dedicated all the women out there Wives mothers sisters daughters auntsgrandmas It’s one of the good manifestation for uprising women history Lately starting from City Girls Summer of 69 I’m so blessed to make another beautiful time travel this time I found myself on 50’s and move back to 2016This book was angsty by telling us so many emotional traumas from rape abandonment betrayal problems of same sex marriage but mostly it’s about the importance of CHANGETwo sister one is popular beautiful the other is tomboy smart their differences and their parents’ treatment to them differently caused so many deep emotional barriers between themBut as the years pass they had so much harsh experiences what made them mature tormented and also strongI enjoyed sisterhood parts the history lesson sometimes it was a little bit excessive as like a full package of information bombardment but it is well crafted story tellingThe book was too long and slow reading sometimes edgy angsty dramatic parts could be a little exaggerated but it was still a great woman fiction and summer readingI could give three stars to this one but my conscious didn’t let me do it I have a sister and I felt the same differences as soon as I started this book My empathizing about characters and soft capturing parts of the story changed my decision This book’s message is embracing the change and learning to accept differences and make peace with your loved ones and your past I got the message and I’m determined to apply on my own life

    Addendum 6 26 2020 This book ended up as my #1 read of 2019All the feelings all the starsMs Jennifer Weiner I have emerged from under a rock and now know you are a superb writer I have been meaning to read a Jennifer Weiner book for years but never got around to it until now Wow apparently I have been missing some great reading This book really resonated with me It is the story of two sisters Bethie and Jo that takes place from 1950 to 2022 I connected immediately with Joview spoiler maybe because like Jo I grew up gay in the dark ages—Jo in the 1950s and ‘60s and me in the 60s and 70s Back then that was a really big deal with few to turn to and little resources hide spoiler

    The Beach boys the Beatles Bob DylanThe Baby Boomers and Bell BottomsWe journey through the 50s and 60s right up to 2016 with sisters night day opposites Jo and Bethie Kaufman Sexual inappropriatenessfamily molestation sexual graphic experimentation between two womena detailed graphic sex scene was much explicit than all the ‘sex chatter’ combined in“City Girls” by Elizabeth Gilbert — which by the way in my opinion the author’s strongest scene as it was the most bold and fearless scene of the entire almost 500 page bookJews Christians religion heritage immigration whites blacks betrayal diets weight gain weight loss class race beliefs opinions fears family death single mother relationships of all kinds description upon descriptions of fashion clothes shoes handbags hair home designs and trends smoking drugs war music art politicsTIMES WERE CHANGINGTHE SISTERS WERE CHANGINGI found most of this book a little dull simplistic and predictable It’s a tale that’s been done many times There wasn’t anything particularly new or uniue A better book with family psychodrama tragic comedy and our self righteousness about our obsessive societyis “The Nix” by Nathan Hill Both books begin in Chicago Both books enter the pop culturebut where Nathan Hill’s novel felt fresh creative and nostalgic”Mrs Everything” felt stale 150 pages could have easily been cut This is another one of those books where I can understand a wide range of ratings I get that many readers found this novel alluring I get it I can understand the appealBut I had 1 foot in and 1 foot out in the ‘yesno’ ‘enjoyment not’ camps My cynical mind had an inner voice speaking to me My curious mind was interested enough to finish 3 stars the middle rating I didn’t hate this bookbut I wouldn’t call great either This was my first book by Jennifer Weiner

    5 stars and a high five to uite possibly the most memorable book I’ve read this year ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Jennifer WeinerI’ve been reading her books for close to twenty years I first read Little Earthuakes but it was In Her Shoes that I fell for most and had to read all of her backlist And that movie? Loved it In my mind Jennifer Weiner gets better and better and this book? Mrs Everything? It’s right at the pinnacle tippy top of what she’s accomplished And that said? I’m already ready for her top herself next time because I know she can Regardless of me already dreaming of her next book Mrs Everything is an enormous treasure of a read It’s technically historical fiction taking place in 1950s Detroit Two sisters with differing personalities grow up in the same family and experience many of the same traumas and uniue family dynamics only to have vastly different experiences isn’t that the way so often with families? Bethie and Jo’s personalities could not be different Jo the older sister lives her early life without abandon while Bethie plays it safe with paper dolls Then later they switch roles and Bethie becomes the wild child during the 60s while Jo takes the safer route to a traditional life in Connecticut as a young mom Neither sister is happy and each is seeking the happy life The storytelling in Mrs Everything is so rich so all enveloping it’s like a warm hug when you fall into this story of these two sisters There’s some darkness here too and traumas these sisters live through The way it’s written with honesty makes it all so relatableMrs Everything is epic in proportions too as it follows Bethie and Jo throughout their lives Everything they experience is something any reader could have experienced I can’t stress enough how innately human these characters are Mrs Everything accomplishes much than the average book It felt me feeling affirmed and hopeful In other words it left me feeling understood Thank you Jennifer Weiner for this masterfully drawn warm hug and a big high five too I received a complimentary copy All opinions are my own My reviews can also be found on my blog wwwjennifertarheelreadercom

    Josette Jo and Elisabeth Bethie Kaufman were sisters who came of age in 1950s Detroit Jo is a tomboy comfortable in old clothes and running around playing sports while young Bethie was content with being the pretty talented one the center of attention Not much changed as the two approached their teenage years much to their mother's chagrin Jo became outspoken in trying to understand civil rights and social justice while Bethie starts understanding that her beauty gives her an interesting form of powerBut a family tragedy leads to a traumatic incident for one sister and self discovery for the other and both impact their lives and their relationships As time moves on Bethie becomes a free spirit traveling the world never putting roots down in one place immersing herself in the counterculture and embracing the idea that women should have whatever they want Jo on the other hand becomes a traditional housewife in Connecticut raising two daughters and wondering how she wound up living the life she is Both are content in their own ways but aren't truly happy but at the same time aren't sure they are willing to shake things up enough to make change happen Mrs Everything follows Jo and Bethie to the present day chronicling the journey of these two women as they struggle for happiness love and fulfillment even when they believe they can't have all three simultaneously They have triumphs and deal with tragedies they turn toward each other and turn away and try to be true to themselves and who they are It's a novel that has an almost epic feel to it'We lose ourselves' she repeated forming each word with care 'but we find our way back' Wasn't that the story of her life? Wasn't that the story of Bethie's? You make the wrong choices you make mistakes you disappear for a decade you marry the wrong man You get hurt You lose sight of who you are or of who you want to be and then you remember and if you're lucky you have sisters or friends who remind you when you forget your best intentions You come back to yourself again and again You try and fail and try again and fail againI've never read anything that Jennifer Weiner has written so when I was offered the opportunity to read Mrs Everything I jumped at it Weiner says in a note that appears at the start of my advance copy that she was inspired by Michael Cunningham's A Home at the End of the World and Susan Isaacs' Almost Paradise two books I loved to write a book that followed its main characters all the way through their lives She also said she wanted to write about a character like her mother whose life moved in unexpected and unbelievable waysThe arcs that Weiner's characters' lives follow are very believable These are women whose stories have been told so many times yet they need to be told many times This is a fascinating exploration of the roles women play within their families within their marriages and relationships and within society There isn't necessarily anything surprising in this book but that doesn't matter; it's still a powerful book with strong messagesI really enjoyed the way Weiner writes and felt completely immersed in the story I felt like things dragged a bit at times but real life isn't always exciting either I do read a fair amount of so called women's fiction but this is one book that I'd imagine will resonate with women than it did with me although I still felt moved by itNetGalley and Atria Books provided me an advance copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review Thanks for making it availableThis book will be published June 11 2019 See all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoriablogspotcomCheck out my list of the best books I read in 2018 at You can follow me on Instagram at
