A review... but not

There's this book that I recently finished that I absolutely adored, but couldn't decide whether or not I should post a review on it. You see, the book is an adult novel, and this blog is definitely centered around YA. So I decided to compromise and leave you with a high recommendation. So here it is:

The Actor and the Housewife by Shannon Hale

"Mormon housewife Becky Jack is seven months pregnant with her fourth child when she meets celebrity heartthrob Felix Callahan. Twelve hours, one elevator ride, and one alcohol-free dinner later, something has happened…though nothing has happened. It isn’t sexual. It isn’t even quite love. But a month later Felix shows up in Salt Lake City to visit and before they know what’s hit them, Felix and Becky are best friends. Really. Becky’s husband is pretty cool about it. Her children roll their eyes. Her neighbors gossip endlessly. But Felix and Becky have something special…something unusual, something completely impossible to sustain. Or is it? A magical story, The Actor and the Housewife explores what could happen when your not-so-secret celebrity crush walks right into real life and changes everything."

Such a cute and amazingly well-done story! Shannon Hale is laugh-out-loud hilarious and the dialogue alone was enough to keep me reading.

Very high recommendation to anyone even remotely interested. You won't regret it.
