(24)Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire

Walking Disaster 

Publication Date: April 2, 2013
Pages: 448




Last Summer I devoured a book called Beautiful Disaster.
I got sucked into the world of Abby Abernathy and Travis Maddox and I admittedly was surprised at how much I enjoyed Beautiful Disaster and how much it stuck with me.  How often do you read a book like that and wish you could get the other side of the story?  Jamie McGuire answers that wish and wrote Travis's side of the story in her new book, Walking Disaster. 


Walking Disaster starts off exactly where Beautiful Disaster starts - with the exception of a brief prologue. This time Travis takes us through the tumultuous relationship between him and Abby.  From the night they met at a fight through their "bet" that landed Abby in his apartment for a month, we get to see Travis's thoughts and feelings as their relationship develops and nearly implodes.  One thing I learned while getting Travis's side of the story is that he is NOT as big of an asshole as I first thought. Yes, he has tendencies, but a majority of his behavior was because of having feelings for a woman for the first time and not knowing how to deal with them.  Which almost seems a bit endearing....

Bottom line, if you have read Beautiful Disaster, then you already know the story.  Good girl falls in love with bad boy, but good girl is not as good as everyone thinks.  If you are not familiar with Travis and Abby, then go ahead and pick up one.  You will not be able to resist the other.

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.
