GNF: The Lauren Edition

I love that on Fridays we can post good news here and I love it even more when I actually remember to do so. On May 16 Compulsive Reader wrote a fabu review of Crazy Beautiful.
My favorite lines:

Crazy Beautiful is an unexpected love story that deals with far more than just those breathless moments of first love, but delves deeper into the finer aspects of choices and consequences, second chances, and forgiveness. The emotions that Baratz-Logsted evokes in Crazy Beautiful are painful and raw, but authentic and exhilarating as well. Crazy Beautiful is a concise, entrancing, and completely consuming read, punctuated by smart humor and wonderful characterizations that especially cause Aurora and Lucius stand out. In its own unique way, Crazy Beautiful is a compelling, bittersweet, and memorable read with a love story so persuasive that it will keep you coming back again and again.

The full review is here.

This excited me because 1) it's the first review I've seen; 2) I have nothing but the highest respect for Compulsive Reader (no surprise there!); and 3) it's nice to have this as a bulwark against the first bad review, because we all know no one gets out of this business without suffering the slings and arrows of the occasional bad review.

So how about you? Got any GNF to share???

Be well. Don't forget to write.
