Read It Forward

Since it's summertime I read. I ♥ reading. I do it ALL the time. I read in bed. I read in the pool. I read in the family room. Where ever there is light...I read. I ♥ to read!
I was so very excited when Julie over at Foursons posted about this...Read it Forward! A super fun chance to be able to read lots of books! All you have to do it enter!!
The Rules:

If you'd like to receive the book I have reviewed on my blog today, leave me a comment. The winner will be selected using If you have a book you'd like to give away on your own blog, please write up a short review, grab Julie's button, and add your name to Mr. Linky at Foursons.
Once a month, she co-hosts this blog hop to give you a chance to pass a book you love on to another blogger.
All they ask is...
1) If you receive a book from another blogger during this book hop, please promise that you'll ultimately pass it on using this blog hop as well. It can be the next month, or two months, or three months down the road-- not everyone has a whole bunch of time to read, so the timeline is yours to decide!
2) Once you receive a book, make sure to add your blog name and URL to the inside cover. That way, the people who receive that book in the future will know where it's been.
3) You can add a book to the blog hop at any time. So if you don't have a book you'd like to give away this month, don't worry! You can add something next month, or the month after, or the month after!
Now, let's get reading!

love the one you're with written by Emily Giffin is a well written book that takes place between 2 cities, New York City and Atlanta, as well as 2 loves.

The synopsis on the back of the book says:

Ellen and Andy's first year of marriage doesn't just seem perfect, it is perfect. There is no question how deep their devotion is, and how naturally they bring out the best in each other. But one fateful afternoon, Ellen runs into Leo for the first time in nearly a decade. Leo, the one who brought out the worst in her, Leo, who left her heartbroken with no explanation. Leo, the one she could never quiet forget. When his reappearance ignites long-dormant emotions, Ellen begins to question whether the live she's living is the one she is meant to live. Love the One You're With is a powerful story about one woman at the crossroads of true love and real life.

My Review:
Star Ratings:
= abysmal - horrific, dull or offensive; avoid

* = poor - blue do, disappointing; waste of time

** = fair - forgettable but inoffensive

*** = good - worth checking out

**** = very fine - well worth your hard earned cash

*****= could not be better

I give Love The One You're With: *****

I have come to love this author and have enjoyed reading her other books...Something Borrowed; Something Blue; and Baby Proof. I am also reading her latest book Heart of the Matter.

Well, this is a great idea but I could never participate because I like to keep my books so I can re-read them later. Like right now I'm reading a series I haven't read in about five years and loving every minute of it. It's like watching a good movie after not seeing it for several years. I remember the jist of it but not the actual story.

Good luck to all who enter.

This is a neat idea, but I get most of my books from the library. This book does sounds like a good one.
