The Someday Jar

by Allison Morgan

Real-estate broker Lanie Howard figures she has the perfect man, the perfect job, and the perfect life. Then she stumbles across her old Someday Jar, the forgotten glass relic where she stashed all the childhood wishes—no matter how crazy—that her father encouraged her to write down on the backs of Chinese restaurant fortunes. She used to be fun once! What happened to her?

Although Lanie is wary of uncorking her past, when an attractive stranger saves her from a life-or-death encounter with a lemon peel at the bottom of a martini glass, she realizes that life is way too short for regrets. Now, jar in hand, Lanie decides to throw caution to the wind, and carry out everything she had once hoped to do, even if it means leaving her perfectly “perfect” life behind…

The Someday Jar was such a fun book to read, so glad I found it through my library overdrive. I want a someday jar or to have my kids start one. This book was great, it’s an adult book with situations and some cuss words but that is just a few times and not the whole book. It was really a delightful story about Lanie finding her way back to who she truly was and not who she had become. I loved this story so much and it is perfect for some summer reading. While it ended to soon I wanted Lanie’s story to continue I was happy to read an excerpt of the author’s next book coming out summer 2016, it’s called Can I See You Again? and I don’t think it continues from this book. Either way I’ll be reading it. If you are looking for a sweet story with some romance than grab a copy of The Someday Jar. This book got 4.6 stars on Goodreads, and that is saying something huge since that site is tough on books and it’s hard to find books that are that close to 5 stars. Personally for me I’d give this one 5 stars. It was just a sweet story and it wasn’t even because of the romance and budding romance it was because Lanie was just a great character and I loved reading about her someday jar and her rediscovering who she was and what she really wanted.
