The Wish List Addiction is the story of compulsive list maker Rebecca Matthews. Rebecca has a list for everything and she will desperately need those lists when both her marriage and career blow up spectacularly. Coupled with her two biggest failures, Rebecca must figure out a way to provide for her young son and care for her aging father. Rebecca realizes that life isn’t just about making lists of things to be done, but rather about making choices, something she hasn’t done too well leading up to this point in her life. Lindsey Paley makes Rebecca an appealing and relatable character that you care about and root for. When she stumbles upon The Little Green Book of Wishes, her life becomes considerably more manageable and magical.
Lindsey Paley had written a true gem with The Wish List Addiction and given us a great friend in Rebecca. The lessons she’s had to learn are pretty much true for all of us. While lists keep the world organized and on time, she discovers that ticking items off a list is not the same as true happiness. It is a hard-earned lesson that doesn’t come easily to Rebecca, but with the help of co-workers and friends, she finally discovers how to live her life the best way she can. Paley has filled this story with a gorgeous English setting, quirky characters and a truly engaging story line. Rebecca’s journey is heartwarming and one which we can all learn from when we get bogged down in the details. Watching Rebecca grow and change and get her life in order was a fun privilege that I would happily enjoy again and again.
