Description

I know it would kill her so I don’t tell her; I just think it and wonder what motion there was in her heart the moment she said it and I fear whatever that motion was is not part of me like I want to believe everything about my mom is part of me. When her mother had told him in private that her daughter had very painful, heavy periods, he suggested it, and without question they put her on a small dose of hormones. Joy and her roommate, Annie, take Theo as a third housemate to help make ends meet, but then Annie’s boyfriend, Jason, invites her to move in with him. Potent and poignant, How to Fall Out of Love Madly offers characters so lovable, and social commentary so sharp, that I have paper cuts from turning the pages and a special place in my heart for Casale's unapologetic storytelling. Haunted by an event from her past, Celine can't escape her shame and finds herself in an endless cycle of self-sabotage.

Yes there were some insanely frustrating moments, especially how the women were treated by the men- I actually wanted to SCREAM but I guess that goes back to how well written this book is. The ones who decide that they’ve had enough of the men around them getting away with inappropriate touches or comments. this is not a plot driven book, this is a book about women struggling and finding themselves in a little blip of their lives, and i debated giving it less stars but that seems unfair considering i can’t shut the fuck up about it. How to Fall Out of Love Madly fearlessly explores three women's shifting desires and the systems that do--and do not--constrain them. Joy knew very early on that she wasn’t in love with Ryder, and that he was at best an inappropriate choice for her and at worst a damage to her self-esteem, but she didn’t let herself acknowledge even one of those thoughts.When they rent out the third bedroom in their apartment to handsome, flirtatious Theo everything gets complicated. I understood the way Annie and Joy were able to see what would be the best thing for one another and to recognize unhealthy patterns in the other, but not be able to do the same thing for themselves.

A lot the scenes in this book was so relatable and cringy I could feel myself getting secondhand embarrassment from it. She dives into our deepest thoughts and pulls them to the surface, laying them out for the world to see. How to Fall Out of Love Madly embodies womanhood and all that it entails; the pining, the crushing emotion of unrequited love, the sexual harassment and assaults, the unrelenting fixation on weight and body image, the sisterhood of friendship.

It was a godsend when the cramps eased up and she didn’t have a ton of side effects from the hormones either, as her mother had feared she might. She was not very well developed and seemed to serve only as a foil to show us how self-obsessed Joy was and how the beauty she wished she had was not all it cracked up to be.
