New Author Alert: Taylor Jenkins Reid

 

Photo of author Taylor Jenkins Reid  by Mila ShahI have no doubt that Taylor Jenkins Reid will soon become a household name. I recently finished her first novel, Forever, Interrupted and absolutely LOVED it! If I had read it before I wrote my Best of 2013 blog post, it would have made its way onto that list!

Why I Loved It

A week after Ben and Elsie are married, Ben dies in a tragic accident. Don’t worry, this is not a spoiler! The accident occurs in the first few pages of the book, and the rest of the story is told in alternating chapters, before the accident and after the accident. I loved this format, because one minute I would be laughing hysterically about incidents that occurred while they were dating, and the next I would be tearing up as Elsie described her grief. I also really related to Elsie, because like me, she is a twenty-six-year-old librarian. Reid’s beautifully descriptive prose is captivating from the very first page, and I savored every sentence, not wanting the story to end.

What’s Next

Taylor Jenkins Reid’s second book, After I Do, will be released on July 2nd. I can’t wait to read it! In the meantime, you can read some of the hilarious essays she has contributed to various websites here.
