Book Review: Making It By Amanda Gibbs (#giveaway)

Making It
By Amanda Gibbs
Genre: Contemporary Romance, New Adult Romance, Poetry

Brief Description

Making It, Amanda Gibbs' debut short story, invites readers into the most intimate and personal moments of a couple's life spanning throughout decades. The story is told through prose, poetry, dialogue, lists, and focused vignettes, all with Amanda's signature concrete voice.  Each entry of Making It represents a day in a year of the couple's relationship, spanning from first meeting to 30th anniversary.

My Review

I've never read anything quite like Making It. The book is compiled of prose, poetry, and dialogue between a man and woman. Making It spans their 30 year relationship in just 63 pages and the author made it work! Readers ride the wave of their initial meeting, sleeping together for the first time, saying "I love you," questioning things, getting pregnant, marriage proposal, and the comfort of silence.

It's a quick, but fulfilling read. You'll laugh and you'll swoon. This is 5 stars.
