Publisher's Summary

Breakups. Family secrets. Stumbling toward independence.
A riveting and humorous exploration of love, secrets, and sisterhood, It's Not My Favorite is the poignant story of two sisters who discover they must confront their past, let go of their religious guilt, and summon everything in their power to escape their arrested development.
Gwenn Hutchinson runs The Organizer by day and bails her little sister out of emotional quicksand by night. Between that distraction and the full-time job of creating a vivid fantasy life for herself, she can almost drown out her mother's post-divorce ranting, "I've always had a man to take care of me, Gwendolyn. You're not gettin' any younger, you know."
Rachel Hutchinson bakes away her anxiety while avoiding a painful breakup with her secret girlfriend. The only people who don't know this "girlfriend" secret are her judgmental parents, Pastor Ed and Shirley.
Just when it seems things can't get worse, Gwenn finds a pack of old photographs that may uncover a family secret. Will these pictures lead to the truth, or bring them face-to-face with the reality they've worked so hard to avoid?
It's Not My Favorite is the first book in the hilarious, fast-paced, romantic comedy, The Lake Effect Series, full of snappy dialogue and memorable, quirky characters, guaranteed to win a spot in your heart.

It's not my favorite

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Sure it was...any book it worth giving a listen to.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have evened out the 2 girls storylines...I think Rachel's story line would've been a lot more interesting

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I didn't love it but I didn't hate it.

Any additional comments?

I was given a copy of this book from the Audiobook Boom in exchange for an honest review.

When I first started it I was a bit thrown off by the narrator. She just seemed a little weird to me. And if you know me, you know I listen to a few audiobooks a week. I'm an addict. But something just didn't click for me at first. After finishing the book I realized the narrator was the author, which isn't a bad thing. But it wasn't until the story picked up for me that I was able to get more into the narration. Had I not specifically signed up to review the audiobook I'd have just switched over to the ebook edition.

I think it was about 30% in when I started feeling more comfortable with Rue as a narrator. By that point I was pretty much sucked into the story and I did not sleep that night because I had to finish this book. Although I do have to admit I was disappointed because I expected this to be more a lesbian romance. Although there is some of that in here, it's a background story and this is mostly the story of her sister.

There is some crazy as hell stuff going on in this book. Ridiculous, but in a way that I absolutely enjoyed and I'm not even ashamed. It's because of that reason that I just couldn't put it down. I needed to know what the hell was going to happen, because it was so different than anything I expected it to be.
