Reader, I Married Me – Sophie Tanner (Book Review)
This book was Gifted to me for Review. All opinions are my own.
Marrying yourself is not the kind of plot I would expect from a book or a life decision that seems like it’s one that would make a good plot, but it does.
That’s because Sophie Tanner the author of this book did just that.
She married herself.
What is it about?
Chloe Usher is living her best life.
She has a great boyfriend, works for a great company and lives in an amazingly diverse city, Brighton.
Things go horribly wrong when she returns home from a work trip and her boyfriend decides to make a huge life decision that doesn’t involve her.
Heartbroken, Chloe reacts the same way most of us do, she goes through all the emotions of grief related to a breakup.
But then things take an interesting turn and Chloe ends up on a journey to marry herself.
Suddenly Chloe is a media sensation after she announces her decision on her Blog, Chloe Wanders, and has camera crews following her as she embarks on a journey towards marriage and self-love.
But things are never easy so we watch as Chloe contends with jealous friends, family members and co-workers who will do nothing but thwart her plans and make her a laughing stock.
Would I recommend it?
The book starts off a little slow as you get to know the characters and the situation is set up but I really enjoyed it.
Chloe is a likeable character and is trying her best to get by in life when the unthinkable happens and she reacts like anyone else would when faced with a major life change she didn’t ask for.
But she deals with it in a way that I don’t think many would but ultimately the book is about loving one’s self and that true love should be about loving yourself first and foremost before you love another person.
This is a great book to read when you’re on holiday or when you need an escape from a weighty topic.
I read this just after I’d listened to Mel B’s Brutally Honest book and to say it was refreshing is an understatement.
Reader, I married me genuinely leaves a smile on your face.
Would highly recommend!
