(from GoodReads)

Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble; it has been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply โ€” but that almost seems beside the point now.

Maybe that was always beside the point.

Two days before theyโ€™re supposed to visit Nealโ€™s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she canโ€™t go. Sheโ€™s a TV writer, and somethingโ€™s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her โ€” Neal is always a little upset with Georgie โ€” but she doesn’t expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her.

When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if sheโ€™s finally done it. If sheโ€™s ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. Itโ€™s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like sheโ€™s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts…

Is that what sheโ€™s supposed to do?

Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

โ€œNobody’s lives just fit together. Fitting together is something you work at. It’s something you make happen – because you love each other.โ€

Despite the semi-mixed reviews of Landline that made me semi-nervous to read it, I actually really enjoyed it! It’s not my favorite Rainbow Rowell book, but I still flew through it and had a lot of fun.

It’s different from her usual books, more darker I think, but even so it still has it’s cute, adorable, and hilarious moments (it wouldn’t be a Rainbow Rowell book if it didn’t) that left me grinning.

Overall, really nice, quick read! Rainbow Rowell can do you no wrong if you’re looking for a good contemporary!

On a side note not sure if this is a spoiler but… AHHHHH, CATH AND LEVI โค

4.5 out of 5 stars


โ€œI love you more than I hate everything else.โ€

By far the best quote ever ๐Ÿ˜‰
