    I sped through it and adored it. The scene involving a disastrous attempt at role-playing had me laughing out loud, yet by the last chapter I was in tears. Having had 6 friends get diagnosed with BC in the past 5 years, with treatments ranging from radiation to double mastectomy, this ...

    I actually knew someone who decided to go for the double mastectomy after being diagnosed with one of these gene mutations. She had already been married and had kids and decided that life is probably better without natural breasts than eventually getting cancer. After a few weeks of ...

    I received this free from Bookish Giveaways. I've known a few friends & family who have had to deal with breast cancer so really wanted to read this book. There were moments that were touching but most of those involved the secondary characters. Overall I really liked the second...

    This was a surprisingly good book. I only say surprising because I'm not huge on chick lit (as I assumed this was) and I was unsure if the topic would be interesting to me. It was! The main character was very compelling and I kept having to remind myself that she was 25 which excused m...

    Thanks to the publisher for sending me a free copy of the book. It's official: this book wins the award for the best first line. Ever. I'm having a bad nipple day. See what I mean? Not only is it hilarious, it's completely intriguing. And a fantastic precursor to the rest of th...

    I simply LOVED the latest from the very talented Georgia Clark. She leads us through Lacey's world with compassion and humor - this book was funny, raw, emotionally gripping, and a page-turner that made me think. A beach read with a big heart. ...

    The second I finished The Bucket List, I hugged it. Like, literally. I clutched it to my chest and wailed. Luckily, I was home alone and therefore didn't terrify anybody. This book is my new everything. How could it be so funny and oh-girl-no-ing and sexy and honest, all at the same ti...

    Spoiler alert: I wrote this. Can't review my own book because weird, but can say I love this story dearly and hope you will to. Thanks for swinging by, and for keeping the love of literature alive! ps. This book has sex scenes. If you don't like 'em, this ain't for you! ...

    I received this book for free through an ARC giveaway on the author?s Instagram page. Please note, that despite the cute cover, this book does contain a lot of sex talk and sex scenes. Omg this book was amazing. It was serious, yet funny. Sexy but sweet. This was a very u...

    Expertly paced and beautifully told, THE BUCKET LIST delivers a perfect balance of poignancy and hilarity. Georgia Clark has the uncanny ability to create characters that already feel like friends and to explore dark decisions with just the right amount of empathy and verve. An absolut...

    Georgia Clark is always smartly hilarious. I loved THE REGULARS and THE BUCKET LIST is an awesome follow up novel. A funny, poignant, sexy about a woman who discovers herself in the wake of an looming cancer diagnosis. A coming of age tale for the modern woman, add it to your late summ...

    Have you ever read the summary of a book, expected one thing, and then gotten something very much different from what you thought it would be? That was basically my experience with reading The Bucket List by Georgia Clark. But oh, what a wonderful thing that was! I expected strai...

    I honestly don?t think the blurb for this one accurately conveys exactly what type of story this one really is, I feel like it doesn?t totally prepare you for both how emotional it is and also how sexy it is. Bit of a weird combo, right? No doubt about that and while it sounds stra...

    Absolutely loved The Bucket List. While this is a book about a young woman finding out she is BRCA1 positive, it?s also so much more than that. Lacey takes us on her journey as she makes the tough decision of whether or not to get a preventative mastectomy, as well as all the other c...

    This book was so, so much fun. Seriously. It deals with a weighty topic (illness, mortality, the trade-offs life inevitably demands of us) head on while maintaining an engaging, funny tone that keeps the pages flying by. It's also packed with steamy sex, piles of tension (sexual and ot...

    The idea of this book was good and Georgia's writing was spectacular. You can really tell she was destined to be a writer by how she conveys a character's feeling in one sentence. I really enjoyed her story because of it but it just felt like I was watching our main heroine setting her...

    i breezed through this book. in what ended up being a truly busy week, i somehow managed to read this in two days. i truly enjoyed the secondary characters (mostly coop, bee and steph) and, while i didn't always agree with what lacey did, i could still appreciate her growth and develop...

    I was so excited when I heard Georgia Clark was writing a new book! The Regulars was such a fun a quirky read so I knew Clark was one to look out for. I recently finished The Bucket List and it was everything I had hoped for and more. The pacing was spot on, the amount of funny vs. ser...

    This was a great book! There is some serious subject matter as 25 year old, Lacey, was diagnosed with the breast cancer gene. She has a tough decision to make. Does she get a mastectomy or opt for constant screening and fear of what her future holds. Her journey to make this decision i...

    Couldn?t decide between a 2 or 3 Star rating. I didn?t love this book. I found the beginning to drag out a bit. It did eventually pick up and I did want to keep reading to find out what happens. I wasn?t a huge Lacey fan, but I did like some of the secondary characters like Coop ...

    This book started off promising but then it became painfully obvious that the writer is a raging liberal and that should have turned me off at chapter ten when Lacey was wearing a T-shirt stating ?I miss Barack? I should have quit then but since I was invested I kept trucking as pe...

    I really enjoyed the many different nuances of this book. Lacey has just discovered she has the same gene her mother had which ultimately took her life at a young age. Her mother died of breast cancer and Lacey now has a very high chance of this happening to her. Lacey is a twenty some...

    4.5 stars I really, really enjoyed this one. I found it to be pretty uplifting, even though it dealt with a very serious topic. There were definitely moments where I teared up or really felt for the brevity of the situation, but overall I very much enjoyed the tone of the novel. ...

    If I had skimmed this book before buying, I could have saved $20.80. As much as I dislike saying I hate a book, I really do hate this one. Main character Lacey is terrible. Barely relatable and decent in the loosest way. The best 3 characters in this book are her best friend Steph, ...

    I was so excited when Atria Books shipped this one to me! The blurb does not do this book justice what so ever and I am so happy I read it. Lacey Whitman is your typical broke twenty-something-year-old living in NYC and working in the fashion industry when she finds out that she has...
