It’s been a while since I wrote a Book of the Month review, so I decided to start the week off with one. This month, I picked out Get A Life Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert.
Get A Life Chloe Brown is about Chloe, who suffers from fibromyalgia. At the beginning of the novel, Chloe experiences a near death experience. At that point, she decides that she was going to get a life. She constructs a list, and she begins to get a life.
She first starts out by moving out of her parents’ house.
She then meets Red, the building superintendent by day and an artist at night. Chloe spies on him every night and watches him paint. At first, the two don’t get along. Over time, he looks over her list, and of course, the two fall in love with each in the process.
Now, let’s talk about the book. What I liked about this book is that it’s definitely a novel that is more diverse. I loved that it talked about fibromyalgia, which is something that definitely isn’t talked about more. I came away from the novel knowing a lot more about the disease. That is something that I truly love about reading – that I come away from the novel knowing much more than I did going into it.
The relationship between Chloe and Red was amazing and well done as well. I swooned as he began to fall for her, and as the two progressed in the relationship. At first, the two hated each other. Overtime, the two began to fall for each other – which was an amazing thing for the reader to see. However, what I liked about it is that it wasn’t overdone. Some novels the romance can be over kill, but this definitely didn’t have it.
I also loved how the two had a troubling past that they had to overcome. For Chloe, it was falling in love with Red and trying to grasp the fact that he’s not going to leave despite her disease. For Red, it’s learning to let go of his past and realizing that it’s okay to love again.
I also loved how nerdy Chloe was. Out of all of the books that I read this year, Chloe Brown was one of my favorite characters. She has this disease, yet she also designed websites and still managed to live independently.
One thing that I wish the novel portrayed more was the relationship between Chloe and her sisters since they were so close. I get it that it’s her point of view, but I thought that would have been interesting to see them interact.
Overall, I loved this book. If you’re looking for a good romantic read, be sure to check out Get a Life Chloe Brown.
