Marriage Vacation Reviews

    Okay, okay, yes, Marriage Vacation is a ghost-written tie-in novel for the tv series Younger. Which, unless you are a giant fan of the show (like me!) probably doesn't mean much to you... and you probably didn't run to pick it up on publishing day like I did! But in all seriousness - M...

    DNF, couldn't get behind Pauline as the protagonist. I'm not a huge fan of her in the show, and although the book made her as sympathetic as possible, I couldn't put the show to the side while reading it. I think I would've really liked it otherwise! ...

    Really enjoyed this having been a long time fan of Younger (since the first episode) and it was nice to look into "Pauline's world" - however, being #TeamCharles, I do hate to sympathize with Pauline in any sense! This was a great tie in - also would recommend even for those who don't ...

    I?m going to be totally honest: this book review isn?t totally unbiased. You see, I am a huge fan of the tv show Younger and have literally counted down the minutes until this book was released. I just HAD to know Pauline?s (er, Kate?s) story of her year away from Charles (er, ...

    I wanted to read this because I am a Younger fan... Urg. Kate (Pauline) is so infuriating that I often wanted to throw the book. I would have rathered a more realistic ending. *Spoiler Alert* No way would I have let that selfish bitch come home. ...

    So, so fun. I'm still Team Liza, but damn do I love Pauline. This book is so great. ...

    A big hit for Millennial Print. Didn't love the ending though. ...

    Have you ever seen the show Younger? (And is it ever coming back? #TeamJosh) If you haven't, then a little backstory: the characters work in publishing and the wife of one of the love interests writes a book under a pseudonym. A book about the time she spent away from her marriage to h...

    Absolutely awful. If my brain wasn?t needing a break I would have given up. Makes Eat, Pray, Love (one of the worst, most self indulgent books ever conceived, said as an Elizabeth Gilbert fan) feel like a masterpiece. ...

    This was fun! It is absolutely a show tie-in, but if for some reason you don?t watch Younger and you wanted to read it, you wouldn?t have any issue. Jo Piazza is a great chick lit writer and this is no exception. Very, very fun and adds more depth to the character on the show. ...

    As a tie-in to the TV show Younger, this book is more or less guaranteed to be a bestseller (or at least a hit with fans). It's a beach-read kind of book and easy page-turner. Rather unfortunately, for both Millennial Print and Simon Schuster, it feels like the production process was r...

    Why should you read this book? Younger fans, I know you recognize this book! Marriage Vacation by Pauline Turner Brooks is the book published by the fictional publishing house Empirical Press on TV Land series Younger. I am a huge fan of the show so when Simon & Schuster recently ...

    Marriage Vacation is a lot like Rogue One. The whole purpose--and really, the only plot point--of Rogue One was to explain how the Death Star could have been so easily penetrated and destroyed by Luke Skywalker in a movie that came out decades ago. It is backstory (yawn), and we know h...

    If you're a fan of the show Younger, you need to pick this book up ASAP. How did I not know they were turning this into an actual book?!?! So excited to read it! If you haven't heard of or have never watched Younger, then you are missing out on an amazing show, one that I think ...

    As a huge fan of Younger when I heard about this book I nearly fainted. Literally nearly fainted. There have been only a select few (I can only think of Charm from All My Children) that have been featured on a show and created in real life. Being able to read page 58 and understanding ...

    This book is readable, and perfect to read to poolside. As a fan of Younger it is a fun tie-in but not a necessary read. ...

    As a newly obsessed viewer of Younger (did I binge all of the current episodes in like, a month? Perhaps.), I was eager to pick up this meta show-tie-in novel. I?m sure without the background knowledge of the show, this would have maybe fallen flatter, but as a viewer, it was a fun a...

    I?ll be honest, it was pretty bland most of the way through. I was intent on rating it a 3-star book but something about that last 25% really pulled me in. That bit was fun to read so it inched it?s way up to 3.5 stars for me. It?s not new, challenging, very well-written or a...

    I wasn?t expecting much from this book, but I?m a fan of Younger and was curious to hear Pauline?s side of the story. This salacious summer read did not disappoint! I felt like I was accessing bonus content to the show, but also that I really did stand on its own (without the sho...

    So, I read this book because it's a conceit produced by the TV show YOUNGER, one of my favorite guilty pleasures. My reading was therefore influenced by storylines on the show and how I feel about the fictional author of this book (Pauline Turner is a character on the show, not the rea...

    Audiobook ***5 STARS*** Wow! What a great listen! WHY does this novel ONLY have a 3.5 star rating?! I can connect with Kate on so many levels (besides being a millionaire and actually going on a one year hiatus). Being a mom and wife can be so exhausting mentally. I?m 37 and alr...

    As you may know, I am a huge fan of the show Younger. When I found out that Marriage Vacation was going to become a real book, I was excited and nervous. I know in general that when books are tie-ins for TV, they aren't always very good. This book is actually surprisingly good. It...

    I mean I'm very #teamcharles but I was interested in reading this as an extension of the fictional world of Younger. It was a quick, fun read, although not well written enough to be as amazing as Liza sells it to be in the show? (Though page 58 lives up to the hype.) It's a catch-22. A...

    As a tie-in to the TV show Younger, this book is more or less guaranteed to be a bestseller (or at least a hit with fans). It's a beach-read kind of book and easy page-turner. Rather unfortunately, for both Millennial Print and Simon Schuster, it feels like the production process was r...

    Why should you read this book? Younger fans, I know you recognize this book! Marriage Vacation by Pauline Turner Brooks is the book published by the fictional publishing house Empirical Press on TV Land series Younger. I am a huge fan of the show so when Simon & Schuster recently ...

    Marriage Vacation is a lot like Rogue One. The whole purpose--and really, the only plot point--of Rogue One was to explain how the Death Star could have been so easily penetrated and destroyed by Luke Skywalker in a movie that came out decades ago. It is backstory (yawn), and we know h...

    If you're a fan of the show Younger, you need to pick this book up ASAP. How did I not know they were turning this into an actual book?!?! So excited to read it! If you haven't heard of or have never watched Younger, then you are missing out on an amazing show, one that I think ...

    As a huge fan of Younger when I heard about this book I nearly fainted. Literally nearly fainted. There have been only a select few (I can only think of Charm from All My Children) that have been featured on a show and created in real life. Being able to read page 58 and understanding ...

    This book is readable, and perfect to read to poolside. As a fan of Younger it is a fun tie-in but not a necessary read. ...

    This is an actual book! I'll admit to being a bit dubious when Simon Books announced they were making Marriage Vacation a reality, especially knowing they'd have to work to fit in all the book references already made in the show. Well, they delivered. Page 58 did not disappoint, and...

    As a newly obsessed viewer of Younger (did I binge all of the current episodes in like, a month? Perhaps.), I was eager to pick up this meta show-tie-in novel. I?m sure without the background knowledge of the show, this would have maybe fallen flatter, but as a viewer, it was a fun a...

    I?ll be honest, it was pretty bland most of the way through. I was intent on rating it a 3-star book but something about that last 25% really pulled me in. That bit was fun to read so it inched it?s way up to 3.5 stars for me. It?s not new, challenging, very well-written or a...

    I wasn?t expecting much from this book, but I?m a fan of Younger and was curious to hear Pauline?s side of the story. This salacious summer read did not disappoint! I felt like I was accessing bonus content to the show, but also that I really did stand on its own (without the sho...

    So, I read this book because it's a conceit produced by the TV show YOUNGER, one of my favorite guilty pleasures. My reading was therefore influenced by storylines on the show and how I feel about the fictional author of this book (Pauline Turner is a character on the show, not the rea...

    Audiobook ***5 STARS*** Wow! What a great listen! WHY does this novel ONLY have a 3.5 star rating?! I can connect with Kate on so many levels (besides being a millionaire and actually going on a one year hiatus). Being a mom and wife can be so exhausting mentally. I?m 37 and alr...

    As you may know, I am a huge fan of the show Younger. When I found out that Marriage Vacation was going to become a real book, I was excited and nervous. I know in general that when books are tie-ins for TV, they aren't always very good. This book is actually surprisingly good. It...

    In season four of Darren Star?s hit TV Land series Younger, the editors at Empirical Press are shocked and deeply moved when they read Marriage Vacation, an autobiographical novel by the publisher?s estranged wife, Pauline Turner Brooks. Knowing the book will cause a sensation, the...

    First up, know this...I didn?t watch the show. I have no idea who Pauline is. This book was a slow start for me and I wasn?t sure how I felt about the premise. A vacation from your marriage?! A week away from your responsibilities as a wife and mother? Maybe I could get on boar...

    This book is part of the reason why I'm perfectly okay being single with cats. The main character realizes after her two children are in middle school that she never did go on that trip to Thailand. So she just up and abandons her family for a year. This is Eat, Pray, Love, minus the d...

    DNF, couldn't get behind Pauline as the protagonist. I'm not a huge fan of her in the show, and although the book made her as sympathetic as possible, I couldn't put the show to the side while reading it. I think I would've really liked it otherwise! ...

    I?m going to be totally honest: this book review isn?t totally unbiased. You see, I am a huge fan of the tv show Younger and have literally counted down the minutes until this book was released. I just HAD to know Pauline?s (er, Kate?s) story of her year away from Charles (er, ...

    I wanted to read this because I am a Younger fan... Urg. Kate (Pauline) is so infuriating that I often wanted to throw the book. I would have rathered a more realistic ending. *Spoiler Alert* No way would I have let that selfish bitch come home. ...

    So, so fun. I'm still Team Liza, but damn do I love Pauline. This book is so great. ...

    A big hit for Millennial Print. Didn't love the ending though. ...

    Have you ever seen the show Younger? (And is it ever coming back? #TeamJosh) If you haven't, then a little backstory: the characters work in publishing and the wife of one of the love interests writes a book under a pseudonym. A book about the time she spent away from her marriage to h...

    Absolutely awful. If my brain wasn?t needing a break I would have given up. Makes Eat, Pray, Love (one of the worst, most self indulgent books ever conceived, said as an Elizabeth Gilbert fan) feel like a masterpiece. ...

    This was fun! It is absolutely a show tie-in, but if for some reason you don?t watch Younger and you wanted to read it, you wouldn?t have any issue. Jo Piazza is a great chick lit writer and this is no exception. Very, very fun and adds more depth to the character on the show. ...

    As a tie-in to the TV show Younger, this book is more or less guaranteed to be a bestseller (or at least a hit with fans). It's a beach-read kind of book and easy page-turner. Rather unfortunately, for both Millennial Print and Simon Schuster, it feels like the production process was r...

    Why should you read this book? Younger fans, I know you recognize this book! Marriage Vacation by Pauline Turner Brooks is the book published by the fictional publishing house Empirical Press on TV Land series Younger. I am a huge fan of the show so when Simon & Schuster recently ...

    Marriage Vacation is a lot like Rogue One. The whole purpose--and really, the only plot point--of Rogue One was to explain how the Death Star could have been so easily penetrated and destroyed by Luke Skywalker in a movie that came out decades ago. It is backstory (yawn), and we know h...

    Okay, okay, yes, Marriage Vacation is a ghost-written tie-in novel for the tv series Younger. Which, unless you are a giant fan of the show (like me!) probably doesn't mean much to you... and you probably didn't run to pick it up on publishing day like I did! But in all seriousness - M...

    If you're a fan of the show Younger, you need to pick this book up ASAP. How did I not know they were turning this into an actual book?!?! So excited to read it! If you haven't heard of or have never watched Younger, then you are missing out on an amazing show, one that I think ...

    As a huge fan of Younger when I heard about this book I nearly fainted. Literally nearly fainted. There have been only a select few (I can only think of Charm from All My Children) that have been featured on a show and created in real life. Being able to read page 58 and understanding ...

    This book is readable, and perfect to read to poolside. As a fan of Younger it is a fun tie-in but not a necessary read. ...

    This is an actual book! I'll admit to being a bit dubious when Simon Books announced they were making Marriage Vacation a reality, especially knowing they'd have to work to fit in all the book references already made in the show. Well, they delivered. Page 58 did not disappoint, and...

    As a newly obsessed viewer of Younger (did I binge all of the current episodes in like, a month? Perhaps.), I was eager to pick up this meta show-tie-in novel. I?m sure without the background knowledge of the show, this would have maybe fallen flatter, but as a viewer, it was a fun a...

    I?ll be honest, it was pretty bland most of the way through. I was intent on rating it a 3-star book but something about that last 25% really pulled me in. That bit was fun to read so it inched it?s way up to 3.5 stars for me. It?s not new, challenging, very well-written or a...

    I wasn?t expecting much from this book, but I?m a fan of Younger and was curious to hear Pauline?s side of the story. This salacious summer read did not disappoint! I felt like I was accessing bonus content to the show, but also that I really did stand on its own (without the sho...

    So, I read this book because it's a conceit produced by the TV show YOUNGER, one of my favorite guilty pleasures. My reading was therefore influenced by storylines on the show and how I feel about the fictional author of this book (Pauline Turner is a character on the show, not the rea...

    Audiobook ***5 STARS*** Wow! What a great listen! WHY does this novel ONLY have a 3.5 star rating?! I can connect with Kate on so many levels (besides being a millionaire and actually going on a one year hiatus). Being a mom and wife can be so exhausting mentally. I?m 37 and alr...

    As you may know, I am a huge fan of the show Younger. When I found out that Marriage Vacation was going to become a real book, I was excited and nervous. I know in general that when books are tie-ins for TV, they aren't always very good. This book is actually surprisingly good. It...

    In season four of Darren Star?s hit TV Land series Younger, the editors at Empirical Press are shocked and deeply moved when they read Marriage Vacation, an autobiographical novel by the publisher?s estranged wife, Pauline Turner Brooks. Knowing the book will cause a sensation, the...

    First up, know this...I didn?t watch the show. I have no idea who Pauline is. This book was a slow start for me and I wasn?t sure how I felt about the premise. A vacation from your marriage?! A week away from your responsibilities as a wife and mother? Maybe I could get on boar...

    This book is part of the reason why I'm perfectly okay being single with cats. The main character realizes after her two children are in middle school that she never did go on that trip to Thailand. So she just up and abandons her family for a year. This is Eat, Pray, Love, minus the d...

    I mean I'm very #teamcharles but I was interested in reading this as an extension of the fictional world of Younger. It was a quick, fun read, although not well written enough to be as amazing as Liza sells it to be in the show? (Though page 58 lives up to the hype.) It's a catch-22. A...

    Is it a literary masterpiece? No (and I didn?t expect it to be). Is it another story of a woman of privilege doing something most average people could never do? Yep. Did I roll my eyes a few times? You bet. But despite that it was still a fun, quick read and a way to see the other si...

    As a tie-in to the TV show Younger, this book is more or less guaranteed to be a bestseller (or at least a hit with fans). It's a beach-read kind of book and easy page-turner. Rather unfortunately, for both Millennial Print and Simon Schuster, it feels like the production process was r...

    Why should you read this book? Younger fans, I know you recognize this book! Marriage Vacation by Pauline Turner Brooks is the book published by the fictional publishing house Empirical Press on TV Land series Younger. I am a huge fan of the show so when Simon & Schuster recently ...

    Marriage Vacation is a lot like Rogue One. The whole purpose--and really, the only plot point--of Rogue One was to explain how the Death Star could have been so easily penetrated and destroyed by Luke Skywalker in a movie that came out decades ago. It is backstory (yawn), and we know h...

    If you're a fan of the show Younger, you need to pick this book up ASAP. How did I not know they were turning this into an actual book?!?! So excited to read it! If you haven't heard of or have never watched Younger, then you are missing out on an amazing show, one that I think ...

    As a huge fan of Younger when I heard about this book I nearly fainted. Literally nearly fainted. There have been only a select few (I can only think of Charm from All My Children) that have been featured on a show and created in real life. Being able to read page 58 and understanding ...

    This book is readable, and perfect to read to poolside. As a fan of Younger it is a fun tie-in but not a necessary read. ...

    This is an actual book! I'll admit to being a bit dubious when Simon Books announced they were making Marriage Vacation a reality, especially knowing they'd have to work to fit in all the book references already made in the show. Well, they delivered. Page 58 did not disappoint, and...

    As a newly obsessed viewer of Younger (did I binge all of the current episodes in like, a month? Perhaps.), I was eager to pick up this meta show-tie-in novel. I?m sure without the background knowledge of the show, this would have maybe fallen flatter, but as a viewer, it was a fun a...

    I?ll be honest, it was pretty bland most of the way through. I was intent on rating it a 3-star book but something about that last 25% really pulled me in. That bit was fun to read so it inched it?s way up to 3.5 stars for me. It?s not new, challenging, very well-written or a...

    Okay, okay, yes, Marriage Vacation is a ghost-written tie-in novel for the tv series Younger. Which, unless you are a giant fan of the show (like me!) probably doesn't mean much to you... and you probably didn't run to pick it up on publishing day like I did! But in all seriousness - M...

    DNF, couldn't get behind Pauline as the protagonist. I'm not a huge fan of her in the show, and although the book made her as sympathetic as possible, I couldn't put the show to the side while reading it. I think I would've really liked it otherwise! ...

    Really enjoyed this having been a long time fan of Younger (since the first episode) and it was nice to look into "Pauline's world" - however, being #TeamCharles, I do hate to sympathize with Pauline in any sense! This was a great tie in - also would recommend even for those who don't ...

    I?m going to be totally honest: this book review isn?t totally unbiased. You see, I am a huge fan of the tv show Younger and have literally counted down the minutes until this book was released. I just HAD to know Pauline?s (er, Kate?s) story of her year away from Charles (er, ...

    So, I read this book because it's a conceit produced by the TV show YOUNGER, one of my favorite guilty pleasures. My reading was therefore influenced by storylines on the show and how I feel about the fictional author of this book (Pauline Turner is a character on the show, not the rea...

    I mean I'm very #teamcharles but I was interested in reading this as an extension of the fictional world of Younger. It was a quick, fun read, although not well written enough to be as amazing as Liza sells it to be in the show? (Though page 58 lives up to the hype.) It's a catch-22. A...

    Is it a literary masterpiece? No (and I didn?t expect it to be). Is it another story of a woman of privilege doing something most average people could never do? Yep. Did I roll my eyes a few times? You bet. But despite that it was still a fun, quick read and a way to see the other si...

    I wanted to love this book because I love the show but I just really didn't relate to this one. It all seemed a little cliche and I wanted more from it - more about their marriage before she left, more about their reconnecting after she got back. I wanted it to be juicier knowing what ...
