It’s My F—ing Birthday

This novel is told as letters written by a woman to herself on her birthday for seven consecutive years. She struggles into her forties while trying to determine ways to not repeat mistakes made with her parents and in her love life. While Markoe interjects many humorous anecdotes, I found the book to be a bit depressing overall. Though the back of the book asserts that the woman ultimately succeeds in finding happiness, I could only see that she ended up in much the same place as she began.

Fun but forgettable.
