Would You Rather... with Taylor Jenkins Reid

Chips, chocolate or cheese? 

Chocolate all the way for me. Never any question.

Bridget Jones forever!

Wine. White specifically. And champagne if you've got it.

Camping or spa vacation?


Water or Mountains?

Water, especially if we're talking beach.

Zombies or Vampires?

I'm gonna go with vampires.

Dogs or Cats?

Dogs, most definitely. I have two.

Coke or Pepsi?

Coke but I try to steer clear of all of it (Although, I often fail.)

Coffee or tea?

Tea! Tea is my drug of choice. Iced, hot, sparking, all of it.

Dine out or take away?

Take away. I am so lazy.

I'm a California girl so flip-flops all the way.

 I really like having the book in my hand.

All of it.

Hunger Games. No contest.

Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick? 

Sheer lipstick. Not sure if that answers the question.

Facebook or Twitter

Twitter. I love Twitter!

Plot your entire novel or fly by the seat of your pants? 

I have to fly by the seat of my pants. I'd love for it to be planned but I'm not good at that.

After I Do

When Lauren and Ryan’s marriage reaches the breaking point, they come up with an unconventional plan. They decide to take a year off in the hopes of finding a way to fall in love again. One year apart, and only one rule: they cannot contact each other. Aside from that, anything goes.

Lauren embarks on a journey of self-discovery, quickly finding that her friends and family have their own ideas about the meaning of marriage. These influences, as well as her own healing process and the challenges of living apart from Ryan, begin to change Lauren’s ideas about monogamy and marriage. She starts to question: When you can have romance without loyalty and commitment without marriage, when love and lust are no longer tied together, what do you value? What are you willing to fight for?

This is a love story about what happens when the love fades. It’s about staying in love, seizing love, forsaking love, and committing to love with everything you’ve got. And above all, After I Do is the story of a couple caught up in an old game—and searching for a new road to happily ever after.
