Truly, Madly, Like me
Frankie is an online influencer and she lost a lot of weight in the last couple of years. Her whole life revolves around her health. But she was in an elevator accident and now she was too late for her appointment. That is the reason why her boyfriend Kyle broke up with her. Now Frankie gets a lot of hate comments and she decides she needs a break. She ends up in a small town without internet. And there is this dog who is stalking her, or is he helping her?
This year I started reading Jo Watson’s book and now I’ve read most of them. But I think this was kind of my favourite one. But they were all so good and I can’t wait to read more from her.
This book is also a little bit relatable. Frankie is an influencer and she cares a lot about how many followers and likes she gets every single day. And most of the things she does is just for her Instagram. She just wants to get more and more likes. But most of us aren’t very different. A lot of people also care about their likes and followers. I have to admit that I have those moments too. That is why it is so relatable.
Another relatable thing was that Frankie just wanted to run away from those hate comments and went to a small town without an internet connection. I have to admit that I looked up to see if there are any places with no internet connection. But it is probably way too far. The best thing we can do in the western world is to turn our phones off and have a social media detox.
But this book was funny and cute. I loved the dog because he was basically helping Frankie with her spiritual awakening if I can call it that. Frankie forgot what life is really about. Because it is not about how many likes or followers you get. I just love Jo’s writing style. I found it very difficult to put the book down. The next time, I will read her books on a day off and not at night. Hopefully, I can find more authors, just as good as her.
So far I’ve read 4 or 5 books from her and she never lets me down. Definitely, a recommendation if you like romance and comedy.
