Book that is most like your life

This isn’t an easy question! I tend to read fantasy, so it’s almost impossible for any of those to be like my real life! I think it was easier when i was a confused teenager to find a book like my life! I think the closest i can get to is “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert because i’m trying to find my way through my life, and i had been going through a breakup myself when i first read it about a year ago so it seemed relatable at the time. I’m still trying to get to a happy place and i’m moving forward slowly but surely.

Update: had a second thought after thinking about Day 13 – maybe “One Day” is a bit more like my life, with Emma struggling to cope with career disappointments and a broken heart.

Today’s question: Is there a book in which the ending disappointed you?
“Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert

- A few books i have read had disappointing endings. “Eat, Pray, Love” is one particular one which i was disappointed in. Obviously, eventually she has to go back home after her adventures in new and exciting places, but surely you can’t expect the magical experiences to linger once you return back home to your familiar and mundane life. The book ends a bit abruptly, and the story fizzles out rather pathetically.

Today’s question: Which book did you find yourself enjoying, even though it’s not something you would usually read??
“Eat Pray love” by Elizabeth Gilbert

- I wanted to know what all the fuss was about when the film version of the book came out, and at the time i bought the book,  i was in need of some self-help. It was good to read about someone who was going through issues similar to what i was going through at that point in my life. I don’t normally like chick-lit type books but this was good, although i’m not sure i’d read it again.
