Meet June Parker. She works for L.A. Rideshare, adores her rent-stabilized apartment in Santa Monica, and struggles with losing a few pesky pounds. But June's life is about to change. After a dark turn of events involving Weight Watchers, a chili recipe, and a car accident in which her passenger, Marissa, dies, June finds herself in possession of a list Marissa has written, "20 Things to Do By My 25th Birthday." Even though they barely knew eachother, June is compelled by both guilt and a desire to set things right and finish the list for Marissa. The tasks before her range from inspiring (Run a 5K), to daring (Go braless), to near-impossible (Change someone's life), and as June races to achieve each goal before the deadline, she learns more about her own life than she ever bargained for. Funny, engaging, and heartwarming,The Next Thing on My Listfeatures a loveable, relatable heroine and a story with plenty of humor and heart.

I laughed out loud as I read most chapters, and yet the author also has a realistic perspective on life and love.

It was fun. I was invested and entertained, but it fizzled out a bit at the end for me, especially in the romance department.

An enjoyable piece of light reading with enough substance to keep you turning the pages. Perfect for before-bed reading.
