A trentauattro anni Brett Bohlinger ha tutto uello che vuole un lavoro invidiabile nell'azienda di famiglia un loft molto trendy un fidanzato irresistibile e una mamma affettuosissima che è anche la sua migliore amica Perciò uando l'adorata madre Elizabeth muore Brett è devastata per aver perso il suo punto di riferimento E il dolore si trasforma in rabbia nel momento in cui si ritrova anche con un pugno di mosche Perché alla lettura del testamento invece d. I decided to pick The Life List for Romance month over at The Book Geek Blog One of my best friends recommended this novel to me saying she read it in one sitting and absolutely loved it I wouldn t say this is a bad book but it s most certainly not my book Look at the following uotes Love is the one thing on which you should never compromise And There will be another sky my love just you wait Now if these are the kind of uotes that make you swoon and want to pick up a book immediately then you might very well enjoy The Life List You might find this novel heart warming and touching see it as an emotional and maybe even thought provoking journey of self discovery It will serve as a reminder that it s never too late to live life the way you always dreamed to take a leap of faith even when your goals seem unobtainable And that really is a beautiful messageExcept I couldn t appreciate any of it because I was too busy rolling my eyes Call me cold hearted but if there is one thing I hate it is cheesiness And this novel is about as cheesy as it gets The story follows 34 year old Brett Bohlinger who seemingly has the perfect life She has a great job at her mother s multimillion dollar company lives together with her gorgeous boyfriend in an expensive apartment in the best part of town and has all the designer clothes anyone could wish for But when her mother Elizabeth dies of cancer Brett is devastated and her entire world is turned upside down Instead of simply inheriting her money the way her brothers do and getting the role of CEO at her mother s company Brett must fulfill the life list she wrote when she was fourteen Only if she manages to complete all the goals on the list within a year will Brett receive her inheritance Some of the goals on the list are uite easily achieved eg get a dog While others are difficult and impactful eg fall in love have a baby I guess I should have known better I should have known from the description that this book wouldn t appeal to me But it came so highly recommended that I wanted to give it a try anywayThe concept of the novel is an overused one and unfortunately Lori Nelson Spielman didn t make it fresh or new in any way This didn t really bother me that much however my problem was the idea that a human being can dictate another person s life from beyond the grave I understand what the author was going for Brett had such a great relationship with her mother that she knew her better than Brett knows herself But does that give Elizabeth the right to practically force her daughter to do something she essentially doesn t want to do To guilt trip her into leading a better life I don t think so Sure it may very well make Brett happier but the woman is 34 for goodness sake Should she not be able to choose her own path And how is it that that a grown woman is still so dependent on her motherThis last uestion leads me to my next point Brett s character Brett has the emotional maturity of a fourteen year old Which is ironic since she has fulfill goals she decided on when she was fourteen She is also the definition of a doormat She lets everyone walk all over her and has no spunk no wit and seemingly not a lot of intelligence She constantly complains about how she doesn t want to follow the life list but doesn t even try to do anything to change the situation Throughout the story Brett remained the obedient daughter with no backbone Who needs character development right And no giving away possessions and then claiming to have become less materialistic doesn t count if your character doesn t actually change Brett is basically tasked to analyze her life and change the things that don t make her happy But of course we can t have the readers thinking Brett is motivated by money So the author makes it clear on every page that Brett s motives are completely selfless that she only does this to appease her mother There is no possible way Brett could be motivated by money because she helps the poor and teaches underprivileged children A goody two shoes if ever I saw one As for the other characters in the novel they were all astonishingly flat and only seemed to be plot devices to pull the story along Brett s mother appears as a goddess that could do no wrong Andrew is the idiot boyfriend who only wants Brett s money Herbert is the perfect man that has no flaws except that he is well boring The list goes on Oh and for all those of you who thought love triangles and other geometric love shapes were a thing restricted to YA books think again This novel contains an actual love pentagon LOL And yes it s as annoying as it sounds Spielman s writing style was uite enjoyable and she did a good job of making the book engaging or as engaging as it could be with characters like that But ultimately I don t appreciate when authors set out with an agenda to tug at my heartstrings I don t like it when they try to hit me over the head with their important message It makes me feel manipulated in a bad way Perhaps this was what I disliked most about the bookSo do I recommend The Life List No I can t say that I would If you want to a good adult contemporary romance pick up Me Before You instead

The Life List

I nominarla nuova amministratrice della Bohlinger Cosmetici Elizabeth le lascia soltanto una lettera Ed è una lettera strana che la esorta a riconsiderare la sua vita partendo dalla lista dei desideri che aveva stilato da ragazzina vent'anni prima Solo se nell'arco di un anno realizzerà tutti gli obiettivi di allora innamorarsi salvare il mondo essere felice desideri semplici e assoluti al contempo riceverà la sua eredità Inizialmente riluttante a Brett non. Ahh this book was so adorable I was very emotional throughout the book I cried and laughed I felt just about every emotion there was to feel with this book A must read

Resta che seguire le istruzioni materne mese dopo mese ogni volta che Brett spunta una voce della lista riceve dal notaio una nuova lettera della mamma Affettuosa comprensiva protettiva e piena di una fiducia senza riserve Come una carezza che la spinge fra una lacrima e un sorriso a non mollare e ad aprirsi al domani A scoprire l'affetto di una famiglia vera e a esplorare il terreno dei sentimenti più teneri Perché la vita è fatta per essere vissuta sempre. Brett a woman with a male name she constantly finds herself explaining is devastated when her mother passes away However the real shock comes for her with the reading of her mother s will She is to complete a list of tasks in order to be eligible for her inheritanceThis book was uite heart warming while Brett struggles with grief and coming to terms with the conditions in her mother s will But will the tasks force Brett to actually start to live her own lifeThis was heading for 4 stars from me but the way the end of the book wrapped up was disappointing and very uick so only 3 stars now
