(31) Hope In A Jar by Beth Harbison


Just what I needed! A good fluff book to breeze through!

Hope in a Jar by Beth Harbison was the type of fluff book that took me back to my youth. My younger, awkward days. Where I wore Lady Stetson instead of Loves Baby Soft and I begged my parents for Guess jeans. (of course that answer was a big fat NO!)

Hope In A Jar is about Allie & Olivia. Two best friends that went separate ways in the middle of their senior year. It is now 20 years later and they catch up with each other at their high school reunion. Their own personal reunion was facilitated by Noah, Allie's other best friend. Was the reunion enough to shake Allie out of her funk? Will the reunion change everything?

Hope in a Jar was a fun book to read. The chapters alternated between present day and the old school days for Allie and Olivia. The chapters of school days were fun to read as a lot of my memories are similar to that of Allie. From the posters hanging on the wall to the trips to Woolsworths (are there any Woolsworths left these days?) it was a fun read. Allie and Olivia are both enjoyable characters and I could see myself being friends with them, both in school and in present day. If you are in a need of a walk down memory lane, this is the perfect book for you!

I wore Lady Stetson. And I think I only wore it because someone gave it to me for Christmas.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
