Writing has always been a passion of mine Back in elementary, for fun my friends and I would gather around and write stories together everything from twin girls solving mysteries to a horror involving vampire badgers living in the coulee behind my house I like to look back at all my stories and see how my writing has grown How they progressed from super sucking to maybe not sucking as bad Of all the ones I ve written, Life of the Party is the only novel I ve ever really finished I published it in , which was Life of PDF or six years ago, and I m not cool like Harper Lee so I should probably get on my next one But three kids and a full time job later, I hope you can understand the delay As an act of faith I named my website christineandersonbooks and I really hope that one day that plural makes senseI want to thank everyone for all the awesome reviews and the critical ones toobecause now I know that Puffs with lotion is the softest kleenex But honestly, I can t tell you how encouraging it is, as a first time author, to hear that someone really and truly enjoyed your book It s the greatest compliment an author can receive For all the fans who ve written me looking for , thank you for your interest And your patience I can t make any promises, but I am writing, and you ll be the first to know when its finishedUntil then Much Christine Anderson.

    WOWLOVED THIS tissues at the ready if you re going to read this It just plain old hurtsbut still amazingDidn t expect to love this book as much as I did, when I read about it I wasn t sure it was the kind of thing I d like so I sampled it first and as soon as I did I bought it straight away and continued to read because I was hooked Such a deep and dark read, you see Mackenzie going further and further and down a dark path, sometimes being lead down that path by those you feel WOWLOVED THIS tissues at the ready if you re going to read this It just plain old hurtsbut still amazingDidn t expect to love this book as much as I did, when I read about it I wasn t sure it was the kind of thing I d like so I sampled it first and as soon as I did I bought it straight away and continued to read because I was hooked Such a deep and dark read, you see Mackenzie going further and further and down a dark path, sometimes being lead down that path by those you feel should be protecting her from all these bad things Riley is lovable and fun and he breaks my heart at certain points as well as pisses me off Best friends should be there for each other, but the actions he takes are completely understandable, sometimes you need to be selfish to protect those you love Grey , you cant help but fall in love with him, he s 21 years old but to me he read as much older, I had to keep reminding myself he was only 4 years older than Mac The relationship he and Mac have is completely and utterly beautiful yet destructive and heartbreaking at the same time.Even though they aid each other in the road of drug abuse you can t help but love them, this story isn t all roses, I didn t even judge any of the characters for the choices that they made regarding the drugs, it was normal to me because the book started off that way, and you almost feel like it isn t a big deal just like Mac does Although there is a point in the book where I was so angry with Grey, he should have known better and chose a different path for both himself and Mac.If you become as attached to the story and characters as I did, then you will no doubt cry your heart out and not be able to stop The most unselfish act of courage to save a person you love, can be the hardest choice to make Utter devastation is what I felt and I cried myself to sleep thinking about this book I had to remind myself that it wasn t real but I can also imagine things like this happen in real life and that makes it evenheartbreaking Through all the tears though came a smile I love the way this story ended, you will not forget about this book in a hurry Definitely left a lasting impression on me, the author is such a great writer, I have no faults to pick Cannot wait to readfrom her. 5 emotional yet brilliant stars This book is super long and for that I loved it evenI recommend this book so highly, whatever books you have on your to be read list, push them back a little bit and move this up as next on your list, because this is one impressive read

    Life of the Party is one of those books You know the type it makes you think, and I mean really think it sticks with you long after you have finished because you have become invested in the characters it makes you cry I hate it when books make me cry Mac and Riley are best friends Their favorite pastime is to get drunk and high Hey, they re young, why not Everything is great until Riley decided he needs to get clean Mac, feeling abandoned by her best friend, delves deeper into the world Life of the Party is one of those books You know the type it makes you think, and I mean really think it sticks with you long after you have finished because you have become invested in the characters it makes you cry I hate it when books make me cry Mac and Riley are best friends Their favorite pastime is to get drunk and high Hey, they re young, why not Everything is great until Riley decided he needs to get clean Mac, feeling abandoned by her best friend, delves deeper into the world of drugs, trying to forget Riley and everything that is wrong with her life I loved, loved, loved the characters in this book which I guess is why I felt so much for them that I was bawling my eyes out by the end The author let us get into Mac s head and really enjoy being there Mac, though young and stupid and obviously making mistake after mistake, was real She had real problems and real choices and real feelings And Grey I so love Grey It is obvious from the way he treats her that he loves Mac, but he is young and free and has the world ahead of him, so of course he makes mistakes, too When he realizes, however, that things have gone too far he does the only thing he can think of to fix it, even if it is the wrong thing We do not see much of Riley for most of the story and mostly get to know him through Mac s feelings and memories of him Though Mac feels he abandoned her, he had always been there just waiting for the right time.I think the thing I really loved about this story was about how realistic it is From Mac s mom and dad just ignore the problem, it will go away to her sister and Mac s feelings of inferiority around her which I can relate to having two perfect older sisters myself to the drug use The author did an exceptional job in my humble opinion of detailing and describing Mac s drug use and feelings I did find myself thinking a few times, can someone really use that much cocaine and still be alive walking standing coherent But, I have absolutely no first hand knowledge of the subject so it could be true Even if it s not accurate, the author did a great job faking it and making me believe it was real I sincerely hope this author writesbooks in the future I loved everything about this story from the characters to the story to the writing style She is an amazing storyteller and I thank her for sharing her story with us

    This book.the story.it took me to such a dark place There were times i had to put it down because it made my stomach turn And all i can say is, Christine Anderson is one hell of a writer This book honestly had me in tears It raised so many emotions in me, some that i felt in my own life, and some that the writer was able to invoke in me.Mackenzie is in a dark place, and it only gets darker for her Sometimes, even your best friend can t do or say anything to bring you out of it And th This book.the story.it took me to such a dark place There were times i had to put it down because it made my stomach turn And all i can say is, Christine Anderson is one hell of a writer This book honestly had me in tears It raised so many emotions in me, some that i felt in my own life, and some that the writer was able to invoke in me.Mackenzie is in a dark place, and it only gets darker for her Sometimes, even your best friend can t do or say anything to bring you out of it And thats when they have to walk away As much as it hurts, one can only do so much until they are dragged down with them The relationships in this book are so raw and real I felt everything the author wrote It tore me apart and left me to pick up the pieces The book does touch on religious beliefs, which I tend to be neither here nor there on But whatever you believe in, believing in something is better than believing in nothing And believing in yourself is where it all begins This book will stay with me forever

    I feel blessed to have read it.It s such a powerful story.So beautifully written.For 2 days, it was my drug and I loved it This author has somehow put me deeply in the characters shoes as if I was struggling with addiction myself It s amazing, the power her words have over you I m getting jittery just thinking about finishing it and nervous about the end I can honestly say this book feels like my drug It s sadly beautiful.

    4.5 stars This was such an emotional read It was not pretty and covers some intense subjects but it was a book that I couldn t put down With music and the drug culture prevalent throughout this book is extremely hard hitting, it holds no punches and will hit you in the gut and the heart With a romance in a drug induced background the author captures love and insecurities, addiction and recovery full review to come
