The year is coming to a close, and we’re all asking the same question: Where in the hell did 2015 go?!

Anyway…onward.

More More Time  – A Book Review

more more timeI’m not much of a book reviewer – I find it difficult to articulate the emotions that certain books evoke. However, I was sent More More Time – which happens to be written by a friend of mine, David B. Seaburn – for me to read and review…so here goes.

More More Time tells the story of six individuals struggling to do what we all do: live life and come out as unscathed as possible and having done as little damage as possible.

The characters are three-dimensional, with their own personalities and quirks, ranging from the Abe-Lincoln-impersonating Max and the buttoned-up-slash-uptight Hargrove to the sunny Constance and the somewhat bitter (and understandably so) Beth. Seaburn knows people, and it’s apparent in his writing; after all, he’s a licensed marriage and family therapist. The guy writes for Psychology Today, for God’s sake. (Dave, why you gotta be so smart?)

more more time quote

I’m certain I’m biased, as I’ve edited two of Dave’s books and will always think of him as both an incredible writer and a wonderful friend, but I can confidently state that this novel is amazing. I laughed quite a few times, not only because a line struck me as funny but also because there were passages that struck me as laughably and terribly true. I cried a few times (no shit – emotional stuff, ladies and gentlemen), and by the end of More More Time, I felt deeply saddened…because it was over, and I would no longer have the opportunity to visit with and learn about these six people.

I heartily recommend that you check out More More Time. Just be prepared for those onion-chopping ninjas to make a visit.

I Read 24 Books This Year

At least, that’s what Goodreads tells me.

How many books did you read in 2015?
