  • Stupid

    Total waste of time, anti feminist jerk who couldn’t manage her life without a man.

  • Interesting format - letters tell the story

    Letters written in 2012-13 by Roxy to her ex-boyfriend, Everett, reveal the story of her life in Austin Texas. The first 75% of this book was a struggle. I couldn't relate to a whiny, lazy, 28 yr old. The last 25% of the book was enjoyable and the ending left a pleasant memory. I volunteered to read an ARC.

  • Funny and incredibly awkward

    Roxy is a hot mess and if I'm being honest I didn't care for her as a character. This isn't necessarily the author's fault. In fact, it shows just how talented she was at creating Roxy as an authentic, obnoxious hippie. She reminded me of the absolute worst parts of the "keep weird" movement when it came to my hometown. So painful. So snobby. If I wasn't so curious as to what she would mess up next, I may have set it to the side. After all, its not every book I read that includes a sex cult. While this wasn't my favorite, Lowry did manage to make me laugh with Roxy's ill-advised escapades. Be prepared for a lot of hippie, vegan talk and elitism. If that isn't for you then this might be one to skip. The Roxy Letters proved to be equal parts fascinating (train wreck character) and exceedingly awkward making this book quite an experience.

  • Will Roxy find the life she wants?

    Poor Roxy! Her life is truly a mess. Her art is blocked, she lives with her ex-boyfriend, has a low paying job in Whole Foods and can’t find a decent boyfriend! To top it off, her neighborhood has replaced a much beloved store with a Lululemon. She’s very upset to see her neighborhood changing into chain stores and losing its individuality. She begins with writing letters for Everett letting him know what she expects of him as a roommate. This continues, turning into a diary of sorts describing her daily life. These are the letters never given to him. It kept me captivated to see if her life would get better or have another calamity.

  • Roxy is awesome

    Roxy has decided to allow her ex-boyfriend Everett to move in with her while he tries to get on his feet. She leaves him a letter in the kitchen that outlines the rules for his living with her. The rules are fairly comical and definitely outline some boundaries that Roxy is trying to set. This first letter sets into motion a whole spiral notebook of letters that Roxy pens to Everett over the course of a six month period. As an artist, Roxy has not fulfilled her potential. Her other ex-boyfriend, Brant, ran off with one of her designs and turned it into a logo for a natural products business. This wouldn’t be so bad, but Roxy is a deli maid for Whole Foods, and just about everyone seems to have this product in their baskets. Meanwhile her bestie Annie has moved up to the fifth floor working for the CEO (lite) of Whole Foods. Roxy is in a major funk. But the tides are gonna turn for Roxy when she meets Artemis, a wild and crazy female who along with Annie, inspires Roxy to get back on her feet. This was an exceptionally fun book. Roxy is hysterical, always praying to Venus and seemingly choosing the wrong paths. Lowry has written a book that is a look at what it’s like to be a young, single female not sure of what comes next for you. I whizzed through this one, wanting to know if Roxy ever gets it right. The format is a nice change from the usual novel, because each letter to Everett gives us all the insight we need into Roxy’s present state of mind. Loved this one! Highly recommend. 4 stars This review will be posted at BookwormishMe.com on 24 March 2020 .
