Book Review: Life Would be Perfect if I lived in That House by Meghan Daum

In this book, a twenty something Meghan struggles through identity, self esteem, and unstable relationships but mostly her anticipation of greener pastures that cause her to fast forward through her college years and move more times than I thought were humanly possible. I am not into moving, I don't like change. However, the book is largely about Meghan being discontent with her life and thinking that the next lease will 'fix' her. 

It was entertaining.  Especially because (minus the moving which is again 3/4s of the book) that would be my life. The book made me think of a quote a heard once about how you can only be Happy in past tense. (Think about it. I get it) Towards the end of the book Meghan struggles with Happiness versus Contentment. Obviously Contentment being what keeps evading her.  

Good book. Worth a read. Especially if you struggle with discontent like me, or if you just like to move!
