This book had been on my To Read list for a while based solely on the title; it’s a sweet and sentimental memoir but wasn’t enough to entice me to read the other books Wade Rouse has written.
Rouse jumps in-between his childhood and his present day as he recounts his favorite memories related to each month. It’s a cute concept even though the timeline gets a little hard to follow. He manages to get two or three stories per month by including stories from lesser known holidays like Sweetest Day, or using both a past & present story for the same time of year (for example New Years Eve and Halloween).
Throughout his past he struggled with his sexuality and his weight, as an adult he is in a relationship with a Martha Stewart-esq man named Gary who features heavily in his stories as well. The stories with his parents are the best; I got a little misty eyed reading the Mother’s Day entry regarding his grandmother.
