"Neverending Beginnings" by Mary Chris Escobar -- A Book Review
Neverending Beginnings - Mary Chris Escobar

Neverending Beginnings basically takes that idea of "What if you got a do-over?" to an extreme. This book follows Kate (not Katherine) as she gets a chance, for who knows what reason, to re-do the previous two weeks of her best friend's wedding. Kate and Amy, before the wedding, were actually quite fine as far as friendship goes. However, you'll find out quite quickly what kind of lead to their fight and why things are tense between them (as well as why Amy in just tense in general). And at first, as with most thing, getting a do-over(or a few do-overs) for a completely idiotic moment seems like an awesome beyond awesome idea. But you find out soon why this can equally be a bad thing. 

 

This book follows Kate as she tries to fix her relationship with her friend, Amy, her love interest, Ben, her ex, Jack, and come to a bit of, I suppose, resolve about the passing of her mother. It was interesting to see how she had to go about fixing certain things or how you would think that what she did fixed things but really made them worse. 

 

I did find this funny and cute. It was definitely on the lighter side of the women's fiction/chick-lit scale I'd say. While there was a small bit of a dark theme with the passing of her mother, it wasn't on the lines of reading Jojo Moyes, Dorothy Koomson, or Liane Moriarty. Most of the book had a real lightness to it, and I think that did help a lot. It did make it really, really fun to read because of that. 

 

My only flaw or criticism of it I guess would have been to get a bit more clarity or knowledge on why Kate got to repeat that time, especially for the amount of do-overs that she got. I felt kind of having a bit of an explanation would be have been nice for that. 

 

Other than that, I really liked it, and if you want something light and fun to read, go for it. :)

 

4 stars out of 5

Neverending Beginnings
Neverending Beginnings - Mary Chris Escobar

Neverending is right.

 

Kate's best friend is getting married after six months of dating. Not only that but the groom-to-be is Kate's ex-boyfriend. Kate has her doubts about the wedding and she's not afraid to let her best friend know. After a drunken toast she wishes she could turn back time so she can have a do-over. And that's exactly what happens.. six times. Each time she does something different in hopes of making everything right and moving on to the next week.
