Jen Reviews Golden by Jessi Kirby

Rating: 5 stars


I don't even know where to begin. This book is being added to my list of favorites. I've been stuck in such a life rut lately and I feel like this book gave me a push of motivation. It's a book about taking chances and doing things outside of your comfort zone. Plus there is a great plot to go along with it.

Parker Frost never deviates from the choices her mother makes for her. She never breaks the rules or even skips class. Her best friend, Kat, wants Parker to do something unexpected before they graduate high school. Not even something crazy. Kat just wants Parker to do one unexpected thing before they leave the comfort of high school. Stealing the journal of a girl who died ten years ago is unexpected, right?

I loved being able to read parts from Julianna's journal. It really gives you a deeper look into her life and proves the saying, "things aren't always as them seem" right.

Okay, now I just want to gush about how much I loved this book and tell you to read it. But instead I'll leave you with a quote from the book. This book is seriously full of quotes that I can relate to SO much. This is a favorite:

"But almost moments don't count, and it all comes down to the choices I could've made but didn't".


  1. I am so glad to hear that you loved this book. I have been debating reading this for awhile now and you just pushed it to the top of my tbr list.

  2. Yes, this book is the perfect one to get someone out of a rut. It's such a beautiful story and so very easily relatable. I'm glad you ended up loving it! I definitely want to read more from Jess Kirby after this book.

  3. This sounds like a very interesting book and one I could probably easily relate to as well! I'll have to check it out when I get the chance. :)

    Great review!

  4. I'm in the middle of a pretty big life change right now. This might be just the book I need to help push my through to the other side.

  5. YES I so loved this book!! And loved that quote. I loved that this book really made me want to LIVE. It shook me up and made me think about what I wanted to do with my one precious life!

  6. Yes!!! This was SUCH a good book! I didn't expect to like it because it was talked about SO MUCH but the story was just amazing and the characters and ... oh! I could gush and gush, too. :)

    Great review!
