I told you it would be a busy week here on MaNiC MoMMy and I’ve got another fun book for you already, but don’t forget, if you haven’t had a chance to enter to win Falling For Me, get over there RIGHT NOW and do so, you’ll have lots of time to enter for all of the books, and then later on this week, I’ll be debuting my eBook novella, so be sure to come back for that too!
I haven’t had a chance to read today’s book as I just received it last week, but it’s one I think we all can relate to in this age of social media.
Molly Shapiro’s debut is Point, Click, Love and one of my favorite male authors, Tom Perrotta, has called it “a thoroughly engaging debut … with wit, insight, and a light touch.”
In Point, Click, Love Shapiro’s characters are across the board—she’s got happily divorced, miserably married and achingly single and they’re all trying to figure out their lives via the internet … one wants a sperm donor, one is tired of competing with Facebook for her husband’s attention (this, I can really relate too – I can’t believe I encouraged my husband to get a Facebook page!), and the divorcee is looking for love online.
Does anyone go out anymore or can we just order everything we want through this dang computer? Hahah! Sperm, love, you name it, the internet’s got it!
Here is the back-of-the-book blurb for you to check out:
Best friends and fellow midwesterners Katie, Annie, Maxine, and Claudia are no strangers to dealing with love and relationships, but with online dating and social networking now in the mix, they all have the feeling they’re not in Kansas anymore. Katie, a divorced mother of two, secretly seeks companionship through the Internet only to discover that the rules of the dating game have drastically changed. Annie, a high-powered East Coast transplant, longs for a baby, yet her online search for a sperm donor is not as easy—or anonymous—as she anticipates. Maxine, a successful artist with a seemingly perfect husband, turns to celebrity gossip sites to distract herself from her less-than-ideal marriage. And Claudia, tired of her husband’s obsession with Facebook, finds herself irresistibly drawn to a handsome co-worker. As these women navigate the new highs and lows of the digital age, they each find that their wrong turns lead surprisingly to the right click and, ultimately, the connection they were seeking.
Point, Click, Love is a fun read for all of us, whether we’re married, single, divorced, with babies, without babies, lovers or haters or Facebook, the internet, celeb sites, twitter. It’ll have you wondering what we did with all of our free time before we sat in front of these God-awful machines all day long! What DID we do!?
To win a copy of Point, Click, Love, tell me some of your favorite sites to surf, or tell me if you’ve found love on line? Would love to hear your internet story! Thanks!
