#BookFaceFriday “Really Good, Actually” by Monica Heisey

There’s no crying in #BookFaceFriday!

Laugh until you cry with this week’s #BookFaceFriday. If ever there was an anti-Valentine’s Day read this one is it. If you love “Bridget Jone’s Diary,” or just belting out “All By Myself” by Celine Dion, I think you’ll enjoy the messy love life in this read. Whatever your Valentine’s Day plans, you can find your next book on Nebraska OverDrive Libraries. Like “Really Good, Actually: A Novel” by Monica Heisey (HarperCollins Publishers, 2023), it’s available as an ebook and an audiobook today.

“Heisey’s portrayal of the joys and pitfalls of online dating will ring true, and Maggie’s self-deprecating, often snarky humor keeps the deeper themes of the story from getting too heavy. It’s a thoroughly modern take on 1990s chick lit, exaggeratedly over the top in the best possible way. Readers will cheer messy Maggie on as she stumbles inelegantly toward a happy, postdivorce life.”
