The Book That Got Me Back Into Fiction | Kelly Golightly

 Not along ago, I did a poll on InstaStories asking if you read more fiction or non-fiction. The majority of you said that you prefer fiction. However, I was strictly in the non-fiction camp, preferring celebrity memoir and self-help books. In fact, I couldn’t even remember the last time I had read fiction.

The Book That Got Me Back Into Fiction: All We Ever Wanted... Here's why... | Kelly Golightly

All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin.

It was one of Grace’s book recommendations, and while I normally shy away from fiction, the plot sounded so modern-day that my interest was piqued:

“Nina Browning has it all: the handsome husband, the Ivy-League-bound teenage son, and the big house in the Nashville suburbs. But with one unthinkable social media post from her beloved child, could it all fall apart? Dealing with issues of class, money, and race, All We Ever Wanted is the book everyone will be talking about.”—PopSugar

Have you read it?

It’s really good. And it’s told from the perspective of three different characters, which is unique. It’s all so relevant too, which is why I think I was drawn to it.

Imagine that someone you loved did something awful… 

Would you do anything in your power to protect them from the consequences? Or, would you turn them in?

It’s not so black and white, is it?

If you’re in need of a new book to read, I’d check out All We Ever Wanted.

Now tell me: What should I read next?
