Review: Landline by Rainbow Rowell

LandlineLandline by Rainbow Rowell was the perfect way to close out September and kick off October. I finished this book a few days ago and while I was hoping I could contain my excitement about this book, and do a monthly wrap-up I couldn’t. Unless you’ve been living under a rock you know that Rainbow Rowell is one of my favorite authors.  She has written four books and I adore each and every one of them.

Landline is essentially about a married couple who spend Christmas apart. During that time Georgie reflects on her marriage and why her marriage seems to be in trouble.  Christmas was supposed to be spent in Omaha, together, visiting Neal’s family, instead Georgie has a last minute once in a lifetime opportunity that requires her to stay in Los Angeles. Neal packs up the kids and goes without her. Shocked by his departure Georgie fears she has finally ruined their marriage and her life. Hurt, confused, and overwhelmed Georgie decides she can’t go home to an empty house. Instead she returns to her childhood home. It’s there in her childhood bedroom she discovers a way she might be able to go back and fix her marriage before it even began…

Complete with friendship, family, quirks, memories, a love triangle, and all the feels of a love almost lost forever, Landline grabs at your heart and makes you appreciate what you have in your own love life. I loved the characters and wanted to equally befriend and fall in love with them. Beautifully written and extremely heart wrenching you can’t help but love Landline.

Characters – 5     Setting – 5     Plot – 5     Conflict/Purpose – 5     Resolution/Outcome – 5

I rated Landline 5/5 stars!
