The Intermission

This is the story of a couple that’s been married for five years. They’re both hiding secrets from each other, and they’ve slipped into a bit of complacency where things look good on the outside, but neither of them are actually happy. They decide to take a six month intermission; at the end of which, they will decide whether they want to be married. Honestly this is not a typical book for me (I don’t typically love books about marriage/babies/etc as I can’t really relate?) but I LOVED this. I thought the writing was excellent, the character development was great (they are both so selfish at times but also still very likeable), and the ending was satisfying. I would highly recommend it. It’s a little heavier than your typical beach read but just as addictive.
