And here’s what you’ll read about in This Is 35:
Four years after completing her first 30 First Dates challenge, blogger and TV producer Erin Crawford is once again racing the clock, this time checking off 35 goals she wants to achieve by her 35th birthday. In the meantime, the network behind YOLO, a reality show based on Erin’s bucket list blog, shifts her from behind the scenes as producer to center stage as a cast member.
Amidst growing pressure at work and home – including a cross-country travel schedule that never seems to align with her new husband’s – Erin has the added stress of a camera following her every move as she checks off her list for a national TV audience. From a wedding fiasco to a fateful dance lesson to a nemesis who’s determined to make trouble in her brand new marriage, everything that can go wrong definitely does. So wrong, in fact, that Erin starts to wonder if YOLO is simply recording her life … or ruining it.
I hope you enjoy the book! And here’s wishing you a healthy, happy and prosperous 2017 that’s filled with goals realized and dreams come true.
