New York Times Bestseller: Pefection, a memoir of betrayal and renewal by Julie Metz.

Picked it up this weekend, but haven't started it. Anyone read it?

I read it. It was good, but I didn't love it. I think I read it too soon after my separation and kept thinking that I didn't need a book to bring out all the feelings I was going through already.

I started it but never finished. I could completely relate to the author when she had her DDay. However the way she handled things afterward I could not relate to at all. After awhile I just stopped reading it.

Update November 2013: It only took seven years but I finally turned a corner. :)

Did you read "Perfection", Jessy? My response to it was very similar to momof2's. I started reading it ages ago and initially couldn't put it down. But then I stalled.

I keep going back to it and reading a bit more, but I can't really relate to her post-discovery actions, either. (Especially in relation to Tomas.)
