love the one you're with by emily giffin

it is no secret that i'm a big fan of emily giffin, but i'm not the kind that like to give people shoutout about everything that goes on with my life, so... yeah, i'm a big fan of hers. 

and as usual, this novel also deals with adult matters. 

it's about a woman, happily married, but one day she came across an old flame. and he's hot. and she was, quickly brought to the times when they were together. i guess the version of cover of the novel i put above really says it all, eh? 
still, i'm not gonna spoil the end, read it if you wanna know.

one last thing i'd like to take from this novel, is it's truthful interpretation of love. it's none of the touchy feely stuff you see plastered o your news feed everytime you open your facebook page. so, here goes...

"Love,not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way"
(Lovethe One You're With, pp.290)

but what we see today, love is something that too often associated with lust. it has become so frail, so changeable, "loving someone is no longer a plague that haunts for years, it has become merely a light flu."
