    One thought on “Beautiful Day”

    1. even though I disliked 90% of the characters it was a decent story well written and with an ok plot the characters are all selfish, petty, annoying, or all three even the dead onesnna is getting married and even though her mother is dead she doesn t have to worry, she planned out jenna s entire wedding before she died of cancer manipulating her entire family into giving jenna the wedding she wanted, simply by planning it out just before dying and how is she going to achieve her plan by putting e [...]

    2. I used to LOVE any book by this author The Blue Bistro, The Beach Club, and Nantucket Nights were wonderful But her past couple have been really awful I mean, totally boring, nothing compelling or even all that interesting It makes me sad The characters in this book aren t even remotely likable, and there are wayyy to many of them I had a hard time keeping up with all the characters, and so many of them weren t even critical to the plot so they were like useless filler The story itself was boooo [...]

    3. I spent the second half of this wedding in Nantucket novel hoping that Jaws would Sharknado himself right into the rehearsal dinner and chomp down every single character Horribly entitled rich people with names like Edge, Chance, Beanie, Griff and Drum run around having domestic crises, interwoven with pages and pages of porn y descriptions of hand sewn Irish linen tablecloths and and lemon drizzled crab rolls and bridal bouquets with tight, NOT blooming, peonies What kind of peasant would have [...]

    4. I wish there weredifferent scales of ratings for books Because this is a five star entertaining read, and it took me no time at all to read it But it s not like I ll take anything away from it It was JUST entertaining It wasn t fascinating It didn t make me think It just diverted my attention happily willingly wonderfully for a few hours It was a lovely story, but that s all it was.I don t feel sad about that, right But rating it alongside Homeward Bound Why Women are Embracing the New Domestici [...]

    5. I feel somewhat bad giving this only two stars, particularly as I finished the book but the characters are caricatures There seems to be little regret over truly regrettable behavior The marriage of the older couple though the wife is dead was just simply perfect, don t you know And she s now pulling the strings for her younger daughter s wedding, per the notebook, which might as well be another character The husband is kind of a schmo COme on, your former wife is dead It s not fair to blame tha [...]

    6. I loved this book as an audiobook The narrator did a fantastic job with the voices and the emotions There were a lot of characters but I was able to keep them separate Lots of different personalities getting together for Jenna and Stewart s wedding on Nantucket It was fun to hear the different personalities and how they interact I liked the fact that mother Beth, who has died of cancer has left The Notebook for Jenna to help with planning the wedding It brought Beth s personality out and why she [...]

    7. I usually love love love Elin Hilderbrand books but this one wasn t my favorite The whole premise of the whole book, the Notebook yes, with a capital N turned me off right from the getgo The idea of a dying mom writing advice to her daughter for her wedding day sounds nice in theory, but Hilderbrand s execution of this idea turned Jenna into a pushover who got talked into a total domination of her wedding by her saintly dead mother We are expected to feel sentimental and gushy about this mother, [...]

    8. Hilderbrand has lost her touch Blue Bistro, Silver Girl, Barefoot those stories brought the characters one being Nantucket alive Her last two books have been incredibly formulaic with no depth to anyone, least of all the island Very disappointing The premise of Beautiful Day is perfect for a summer read But Hilderbrand phones it in with an undeveloped story line, uninteresting plot twists , and general blah character development Very disappointing.

    9. This was good and quick I kept thinking that this would make a great TV movie for Lifetime.The characters are all flawed in some way, put a wedding in the mix and those flaws are always going to come out.The notebook The brides mom wrote was a fun touch, What daughter can argue with a notebook her mom wrote on her death bed I know I told my mother and mother in law NO several times, and I am not sure if I could have done it if she did it on her death bed In some ways I do think the mother manipu [...]

    10. I absolutely loved this book Because it made me feel like I was in the story living it with the characters.

    11. I just finished reading Beautiful Day by Elin Hilderbrand and I have to say I think this is my favorite novel thus far from her Although I do love all her chick lit stories about the beautiful majestic island known as Nantucket The novel begins with a wedding invitation advising of the pending nuptials of Jenna Carmichael and Stuart Graham which are to be held on the beautiful island of Nantucket While almost every bride hopes to recruit the advice, help and wisdom of their mother in planning on [...]

    12. This was my first attempt at an Elin Hilderbrand novel, and while the Nantucket setting was intriguing, I had to abandon the audiobook a little less than halfway in All of the characters were insipid, whiney and annoying The plot was absurd of all the years and events for all her family members, the dead mother chose her youngest daughter s wedding as the single most important day in the family s lives, worthy of expending all her deathbed energy to plan every last detail I kept hoping there wou [...]

    13. Hilderbrand is a fantastic writer of families and emotions In this story, Jenna and Stuart go to Nantucket to be married Jenna is one of four siblings Her mom and dad were happily married for 35 years until her mom died from ovarian cancer Knowing that she would not be around for the marriage of her youngest daughter, she decides to write a notebook of advice on how to plan the perfect day Jenna and her sister, Margot who is also the maid of honor plan the day following her mom s instructions to [...]

    14. I loved the premise of this book with the bride s late mother leaving behind a notebook of her wishes for her daughter s wedding I have always enjoyed the beach setting and the family dramatics in the books I have read by Elin Hilderbrand and this one did not disappoint This was an enjoyable, light read with a great touch of emotion It was touching that the daughter was adamant on following her mother s wishes for the wedding and that the family respected it.

    15. I wasn t going to review this one, even though I so enjoyed it Howeverter my decision, I read the first few reviews listed on d I I felt a bit irritated So here I am.So many of the 2 star reviews were from people that have read Elin Hilderbrand in the past and just didn t think this one was as good as the some othersral said, good characters, good story, good writing, but I liked x or y better So this kind of validates Margaret Mitchell and Harper Lee s decision to never write a second book, eh [...]

    16. I really enjoyed this light fluffy bit of Chick Lit Hilderbrand throws together all the catastrophes that can happen in a large family wedding and organizes it all with an instructional wedding notebook written for the bride by her dying mother While this sounds constricting, it was a clever way to ground some of the zany moments during the weekend on Nantucket Many, many laugh out loud momentske the mother of the groom, distressed that her husbands ex wife shows up at the ceremony in a bright f [...]

    17. What an utter disappointment I have really enjoyed the previous Elin Hilderbrand books picked this hot mess up before I read any reviews.The writing was fine, but very flat The story was about a dead control freak mother who dictated the terms of her youngest daughter s wedding Each every character was so unlikable It was as if the author just threw together a bunch of entitled 1% ers in a gorgeous setting and created monsters out of each every personeven the children were awful The entire book [...]

    18. For me, Hilderbrand runs hot and cold I wasn t crazy about her last book but enjoyed this one thoroughly Sure it was predictable and you ll know how everyone s problem is going to be resolved although there were a couple of little surprises but it was the perfect book for a beautiful day at the lake Recommend for readers of Nancy Thayer and Anne Rivers Siddons, or for that vacation when it doesn t matter if you never really get to know the characters because, really, it s just for fun.

    19. Beautiful Day Shines, With A Few Clouds Review Written by Colette Byfield Spoiler Alert Advanced CopyA wedding story about divorce Divorce is paying for this wedding, declares Margot, the divorced, slightly embittered, matron of honor and central character of this un wedding story It is Margot s caustic observations of life and family that transform Beautiful Day from being a wedding story into a marriage story.I wasn t sure I would be able to fully relate to another wedding story The travails o [...]

    20. I won a free arc copy of BEAUTIFUL DAY and was asked to give my honest review and I can honestly say, I loved it.Jenna Carmichael and Stuart Graham are getting married this weekend in a wedding planned and orchestrated by Jenna s mother, Beth, who s been dead for seven years When Beth was dying of cancer and realized she would not live to see her youngest daughter fall in love and get married, she wrote a Notebook with a capital N , to help Jenna plan het wedding in Beth s absence.Marriage is th [...]

    21. I think every year around this time we mention how much we love Elin Hilderbrand s writing She is the perfect summer read although we do read her all year round her books almost always take place during a summer on the small island of Nantucket She has the perfect combination of sunshine, beaches, and amazing food in her books However, her books are much than summer fun Her characters are rich, engaging, and easy to relate to Beautiful Day is her new novel and it will be in our store on June 26 [...]

    22. Reasons why I rated this book 5 stars 1 I lingered myself reading on this and so it leaves me breathless and flooded w tears until 2 00 in the morning 0 2 I love the outtakes part 3 I love Roger s POV as a wedding planner he knows too much 4 The choice of music from Margot, Kevin and Nick punk stuff which I can very much relate and Jenna s favorite Bruce Springteen, The Beatles and Clapton and it included my new favorite Teach your Children by CSNY, with this kind of book I make sure that I had [...]

    23. As I was reading this book, I kept thinking that the premise the bride s late mother who apparently was a saint has left a notebook for her youngest daughter, with detailed plans for the wedding Everything is planned, down to the flowers in the bouquets, music, wedding invitations etc and the bride and her family follow the notebook down to the smallest detail Even though I felt the notebook was too precise, I loved the message on the last page of the notebook The numerous personal relationship [...]

    24. I absolutely devoured this book From the very first page, I was pulled in The characters were compelling, the plot interesting and enjoyable and as always, the setting of Nantucket was perfect.I was impressed with the format that the author used She somehow took the time frame of a weekend and told an entire story over many years This was my fourth Hilderbrand book and she doesn t fail to disappoint I feel from the first page her characters are real and people who I want to get to know better Th [...]

    25. I m continuing on my Elin Hilderbrand binge and enjoying it The Nantucket summertime setting is perfect right now, as we New Englanders battle seventy mile per hour winds and blizzard conditions caused by something called a bomb cyclone It s fun to watch her characters fall apart and then pull themselves back together Her women cook interesting food, garden and wear expensive designer clothes, all of it portrayed in detail Some reviews that I ve read call this boring , but I like it Many of them [...]

    26. It has become a tradition for me to pick up Elin Hilderbrand s latest book at the beginning of every summer and immerse myself into whatever wonderful Nantucket beach story she has come up with for that year Bliss This one, however, was not bliss I was disappointed for several reasons I think the big one was that practically none of the characters were very likeable They all came off as spoiled rich people with too much time and money on their hands Which I guess leads me to the second reason I [...]

    27. Beautiful Day by Elin Hilderbrand is definitely a book that I will recommend to my book club I am so pleased that I had a chance to read it through First Reads.The setting of the book is in Nantucket for the wedding of Jenna Carmichael and Stuart Graham It is a perfect place for such an occasion because the wedding takes place on the grounds of Jenna s family home, which is filled with family history and many happy memories The book seems to settle around three characters and an object Margot Ca [...]

    28. I won the book Beautiful Day through First reads giveaway I was excited to read Elin Hilderbrand s newest book I thought it was very well written At first thought I figured the story was going to be about Jenna and her wedding to Stuart But, this story is really about Margot and the wedding is used as the backdrop for the story Elin did a wonderful job with the way the story was written I really liked the flow of the story There was so much going on that it could have been easy to get lost in th [...]

    29. It isn t summer unless there s a new Elin Hilderbrand novel to read I love it It definitely signals the start of summer for me This book was told from different viewpoints of those involved with the wedding of Jenna and Stuart It reminded me of the Maggie Shipstead book I read last year which was in my mind, something I thought was going to be awesome but instead was painful to read I am happy to say that this was not painful to read It would have been nice to learn of the bride and groom s per [...]
