Boys, Booze, and Bathroom Floors: Forty-Six Tales about the Collision of Suicide Grief and Dating Reviews
I read this in just over an hour. It's a whirlwind. Raw, unfiltered emotions and true feelings. Relatable sarcasm, and wit- it's a great read.
I learned about this book from a fellow author I met at a suicide loss support group. I purchased the Kindle version this weekend and read it in less than two hours; I could not put it down. This author has a wicked wit and refreshing brand of sarcasm that I found heartbreakingly hilarious and wholly comforting. Ms. Miller's ability to paint her journey through betrayal, loss and grief is executed brilliantly. Michelle Miller – kudos to you for being brave enough to be completely vulnerable in a public forum. Your story will undoubtedly help other women facing similar tragedies and will also save many from feelings of shame and denial about the realities of our reactions and decisions made after such loss.I look forward to reading more!
Michelle manages to combine the tragedy of being a suicide widow with the uphill battle of entering the dating world. She has a true talent for putting emotion into words and captivating the reader with her raw honestly. Definitely a must read!
PowerfulRaw and riveting... Good to see i am not the only one making bad choices in the name of grief. Great book!
Not just for widowsI almost didn't buy the book but I'm glad I did. This book was a witty spot on portrayal of dating again after a divorce. It captures your attention from chapter one. Good luck on your future publications Michelle.
Great readGood read for a grieving young widow in her 30s. Read it in 2 days. Couldn't put it down. Puts dating as a widow in perspective
