Review: Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire

Review: Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire

    Review: Beautiful Disaster is one of my favorite books, so I was counting down the days until Walking Disasater released and after devouring it, I can say that Jamie McGuire did not disappoint, I fell more in love with Travis after reading this book. Walking Disaster opens with Travis as a child, and I’m so glad that Ms. McGuire started this book with this Prologue, It was extremely emotional to read but totally worth the tears because I feel it explains the reason that Travis is the way that he is as an adult. Walking Disaster is the same story as Beautiful Disaster, although since it’s in Travis’ POV, we do get to see some different scenes.  I love that we get […]
