FALLING FOR ME By Anna David [Review]
FALLING FOR ME by Anna David concerns a subject matter that any woman over the age of 25 can relate to. Since I fall into this category, I was pretty excited to pick up a copy and read this novel.
There isn’t a person (man or woman) out there who hasn’t struggled with the “I’m not where I wanted to be at this point in my life” syndrome. David manages to take this daily struggle and make it a fun and entertaining read.
The story of Falling For Me follows Anna through her ups and downs of single life. Just when she feels that she can’t possibly go on any more, Anna discovers a copy of Sex and the Single Girl by Helen Gurley Brown. The book is from the 1960s, but Anna manages to use the advice to help her in modern day dating and life in general.
Anna is on the verge of 30, not married, and struggling with the way that she “thought” her life would go. Falling For Me is a peek into Anna’s most personal thoughts, her life choices, and really showcases the idiosyncrasies of what makes Anna, Anna.
The writing is great. Mostly the story is inner banter that we’ve all had with ourselves, but done in a way that really makes you feel connected to the author. David really opens up, and doesn’t just share her success stories, but also makes the reader feel like it’s OKAY to fail at certain things.
Life is all about making mistakes, and through David’s writing, we get to see firsthand how mistakes aren’t really that horrible. I loved Falling For Me. The message, the tips, tricks, and the ability to see into another woman’s VERY personal thoughts were eye opening and really inspiring.
I would recommend this to any woman (or man for that matter!) that has ever had a single self deprecating thought. Great job, Anna David!
