Eighty and Out by Kim Cano Book Tour (& My Review)

Traumatized by visits to the nursing home to see their elderly aunt, Louise and her sister Jeannie made a youthful pact to not live past age eighty. Was it a silly childhood idea, or were they wise beyond their years? Most importantly, will they go through with it when the time comes?

Eighty and Out Editorial Review:

“An emotionally-charged women’s fiction novel about the bond between sisters, friendship, and fate, Eighty and Out will have you deliberating your destiny.” ~ Bestselling author Deborah Brown

Available to buy from….
Barnes and Noble

My thoughts;

I am going to start off by saying this isn’t a book I should have continued reading right after watching a super emotional episode of Grey’s Anatomy! I cried so much in the 4/30 episode of Grey’s, & finished this book on 5/1, and ended up crying even more!

I cried with Louise on so many occasions towards the end of this book. There were some sad times, but that’s life. The heartbreak that Louise went through was astounding, and she lost almost every person in her family. I wanted to reach in and slap Jim, her husband. I really felt bad for her.

This book made me laugh, cry and gasp. There were parts of the book that were super predictable, yet others were super surprising!

I wasn’t sure what I would think of the book & how long it would take me to get into it but I read all 43 chapters in 2 days. Over 20 chapters the first day & the rest on the 2nd day.

Amazing book! I really enjoyed it!

    My best friend when I was a kid and I made a few pacts. One was real silly, we agreed that we would never wear polyester pants no matter how old we got.

  3. I don’t recall any pact I may have made. I loved this book so much. You weren’t the only one to cry reading it. (And I agree, GA was pretty emotional too).
