Hello and happy Wednesday. You probably already know that I’m not really into adult books because I’m a child at heart, but every once in a while I’ll read one and share my thoughts on it in here. Today I’m bringing you a review of The Opposite of Maybe by Maddie Dawson. Let’s get started, shall we?
My first thought with this book was that it was sort of predictable, but the truth is that not much happens, so it’s not a big deal.
At first I thought the characters were dull, you know? Like not much was going on in their lives. I think that was the author’s intention, at least at the beginning.
I grew to like this book enough to read it all, but there were things I didn’t like at all, for example, the fact that Rosie, the main character, who gets pregnant at the age of 44 when having unprotected sex with Jonathan, her boyfriend, is always insisting on her baby needing a father. Like, I get it, you’re old, but babies don’t *need* a father to grow healthy and happy.
The story revolves around Rosie’s life after she decides not to move with Jonathan to the other side of the country and realizes she’s pregnant. I like the fact that the plot is not about Rosie’s love life, but it’s about several aspects of her world and the way she sees things now that she’s going to have a baby.
It is all in all a good book, nothing too great or exciting, but entertaining enough. Do you have any recommendations of fun adult books? Let me know in the comments!
