Synopsis: 
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of How Stella Got Her Groove Back and Waiting To Exhale is back with the inspiring story of a woman who shakes things up in her life to find greater meaning.

In I Almost Forgot About You, Dr. Georgia Young's wonderful life--great friends, family, and successful career--aren't enough to keep her from feeling stuck and restless. When she decides to make some major changes in her life, quitting her job as an optometrist, and moving house, she finds herself on a wild journey that may or may not include a second chance at love. Like Waiting to Exhale and How Stella Got Her Groove Back, I Almost Forgot About You will show legions of readers what can happen when you face your fears, take a chance, and open yourself up to life, love, and the possibility of a new direction.

My Rating: 

My Thoughts:
I'm a huge fan of Terry McMillan so when I saw this book I immediately had to request it. I gave this a 3.5 rating because it didn't give me all the feels that I'm used to. I found that it was too detailed at times and had to skip a few pages every now and then. The dialogue between characters was interesting enough, gave me a few laughs here and there, but did nothing to truly keep my interest 100%.

I'm not sure if it was Georgia (the main character), the secondary characters or just the plot itself, but I couldn't get into this. I think this might be a good read for older women, but for me this just didn't do it for me. I will be keeping it in my library and try to re-read it sometime down the line, but as of right now I'm 50-50 on this book.
