Today I have the honor of reviewing My Crazy (Sick) Love by Drica Pinotti. I was sent this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review and I can’t wait to share my thoughts!
Amanda Loeb is a single, intelligent New York City attorney coming up on the eve of her thirtieth birthday. With a stable job, a circle of supportive friends, and close relationships with her mother and sister one detail sets Amanda apart from others – she is a hypochondriac. Her medicine cabinet is home to a stock of medications sourced from an actively managed A-Z list of the best doctors in NYC. When Amanda meets Brian Marshall, a handsome and charismatic restaurant owner, her heartbeats in undiagnosable somersaults. As their relationship develops Amanda learns the intricacies and complications love brings may be the cure-all ‘pill’ she needs to free herself from the affliction – for the rest of her life.
As someone who suffers from extreme anxiety, I found this book to be a very relatable story. Amanda, in the beginning, is someone who allows her anxieties and hypochondria to run her life and make her decisions for her. She has a system, granted not a very healthy system so that she can avoid any unpleasantness that life may throw at her.
It takes falling in love and other circumstances to occur for her to see this isn’t a healthy way of living and she makes the adjustments needed to better enjoy her life! There were parts I felt dragged on, especially the medical jargon, but I understand how it was necessary to the story! Overall an enjoyable read!
I hope you all enjoyed my thoughts!!
