Tell Me Everything

- Laura Kay

Goodreads Book Blurb:

Would you entrust your life choices to someone hell-bent on avoiding theirs?

Natasha has everything under control, at least that’s what her clients think. As a therapist, she has all the answers but when it comes to her personal life, she seriously needs to start taking her own advice.

Still living with her ex-girlfriend, Natasha’s messy love life is made up of dates and one-night stands. After all, why would you commit to one person, when there is an endless stream of people waiting for you to swipe right? Besides, people always leave.

But when Margot arrives on the scene, everything changes. Flailing between mending long-broken relationships and starting new ones, Natasha’s walking the line between self-actualisation and self-destruction… With denial no longer an option, it is time for Natasha to take control of her own happiness.

My Review:

***Thanks to NetGalley and Quercus Books for an eARC of this book. The following review is my honest reflection on the text provided.

average:
3/5
This is a messy story; the characters aren’t perfect, there’s a lot of poor decision-making and strange situations, and at times it’s not clear where it’s going. No one feels very settled or sure of themselves, leaving the narrative feeling the same way.

Natasha is her own worst enemy, and I was totally on her side, but after probably her twentieth poor decision, I lost some empathy for her. There’s only so much self-sabotage that’s understandable – or believable – before you’re ready to give up on someone. It’s not like she doesn’t have a strong support system – her friends are insanely generous, she has a twin sister who has a lot of responsibilities but is very present in her life, she takes an active role in the lives of her niece and nephew, and while the relationship with her mother is strained, it’s still there. Some extenuating circumstances explain a lot of her behaviour, but it doesn’t make it easier to read at times.

I found Tell Me Everything interesting, but I know it won’t be the book for everyone. It’s well-written, and there is a worthwhile story here; it might just take some digging and some patience.
