Next Year I'll Be Perfect was a delightful story about Sarah who was putting pressure on herself to achieve all that she'd written on a TO DO LIST a few years back. And who hasn't felt inadequate or the pressure to achieve certain things in life by a major milestone, which in this case would be her 30th birthday.
I think a true strength of the writing in this book was that the characters were very realistic and the things that Sarah was going through were also very realistic. I am sure most of us can identify with that need to feel like we are going somewhere in life and have felt like life is passing us by.
I truly enjoyed Laura's book and really think that she has a lot to offer as an author. I'll be looking forward to her next one eagerly!
