Meagan I think beautiful disasters is the best of the Maddox series. This book is still good though!

Wow, okay, is this woman for real?
In the end she will end up writing a whole special book about the dog or something.
Jesus Christ, it's enough.
I can't log into goodreads without Jamie McGuire having announced YET ANOTHER Maddox book.

Si querés una opinión un poquitín más extensa, podés encontrar mi descargo/delirio/desahogo acá.

Y cuando pensaba que no se podría arruinar más una historia, Jamie me lo confirma.
Siento una total decepción, porque con su necesidad por continuar la serie y exprimir hasta el último centavo, terminó distorsionando las personalidades de aquellos que nos enamoraron hace años. Siendo honesta no esperaba nada de este libro, simplemente deseaba que el daño de la pérdida fuera el mínimo. Pero no... No esp

No estoy enojada estoy emputadisima, ¿Por qué carajos no se murió Camille? Está bien sabía que no iba a morir pero no perdía las esperanzas si Jamie la hubiera matado le doy las 5 estrellas hasta las que no hay, pero ahora tendré que hacer mi propia versión y matarla y la llamaría La hermosa muerte de Camille y seria tortuosa y sanguinaria y es que se los juro en este libro la odié más que nunca y es que no se cansa de ser tan Whore?

'A Beautiful Funeral'. Life is unfair, messy and complicated. We have to live it like it's the last day on earth because we only get to live once. You took the 'I will love you forever' & 'Happily Ever After' to a whole new level.

I knew. i fucking knew it!! That i'll never be same after reading A Beautiful Funeral. There are just so many feels right now. Even i waited 2 days to write this review and yet i can't get the idea how to review this heartbreakingly good book.

Oh man, my heart. This book was hard. I know it won't be the last we see of the Maddoxes, but this wrap up is sure to leave your heart feeling broken, but full.



I'm too far in now to stop...

P.S. I LOVE MY LIBRARY! They always stock the book I request after like 3 days. They're awesome.

Emotionally written.

This book is a surprise for me because I really thought The Maddox series has ended in book 4. I dunno why the author needs to elaborate the series. And to be completely honest, this is a game-changer. Which is why I felt that there's another sequel the author is cooking up.

As for the title, well, there were actually two characters who died. One scene, two deaths.

With regards to the brothers and their wives, I'm not surprised that Taylor and Falyn got separated. Right from th

“From the moment you become aware of a secret, the inevitable question arises: what price will you pay to keep it?”

Have you ever read a book and wished with everything you had that you could go back and tell yourself not to read it? No? Yes? Well, this one is mine! Seriously WTF did I just read? I'm a huge fan of the Maddox boys, so it pains me to say that I did not love this book. In my opinion Jamie McGuire took all my happy endings and my heart then crushed it

Jamie, si matas a algun personaje en este libro ( que apuesto a que si por el titulo taaan revelador)
que sea a Camille, con mucho gusto lo voy a leer. (O Elli, no importa).

Te atreves a hacerle algo a Travis o Abby o America o Shelpley y te la veras conmigo(?

Terminé el libro hace bastante, como un mes pero no tenia tiempo para hacer una reseña. Puede contener spoilers.

Voy a hablar de cada uno de los personajes, o mas bien de cada pareja.

Not sure what to say about it.
I loved it. 80% of that love is due to Travis being in the book a lot! ☺
I didn't really LOVE the previous few books.
But this was great again. Lots of Travis, lots of other characters.
Every chapter is told from another POV. All Maddoxes and their spouses get their say.
It was great. It was like a huge suspensy and very moving epilogue to the whole series!


Only the ending was completely stupid. Not the very end....that was just cheesy and sad. But the part before that,

I don't even know what to write. I am so disappointed. I LOVE THE MADDOX BROTHERS!!! BUT THIS WAS UTTERLY RIDICULOUS! (in my opinion)

Even before the book came out, I already knew who was going to die and guess what? I was right. Which sucks, I love when books surprise me. This one definitely surprised me with how bad it was.

Awestruck. I read this book over a month ago then waited until release day to read it again before writing my review, but I read it slower this time. Taking the time to savor each and every detail, and still only one word can summarize how this book made me feel… Awestruck. Jamie McGuire has created a family that has buried themselves deep into the hearts and souls of her readers to the point that we feel like we are a part of their family.

Este libro es lo peor que esta autora pudo hacerle a su saga!! Jamie LA CAGASTE!!! No te voy a perdonar nunca el hecho que me hayas hecho odiar, decepcionar y enojar de algunos personajes a los que amaba con todo mi corazon. No puedo entender como pudiste tirar por el piso toda una historia maravillosa y matar a tus propios personajes.

Very emotional read.
Eh... Over the top, weird and imo completely unnecessary (just as every book in this series besides BD and WD). Also, the amount of kids in this book was ridiculous, I was cringing through all scenes including them lmao (I really don't like kids). Why did every couple have to have like a billion kids?

Also, apparently Falyn stayed with Taylor which pisses me off. I hate him. I didn't particularly like her either but she still deserves better.

I'm just really sad that Toto had died. That was the m

Quiero empezar diciendo que sí llegaron hasta esta novela es por qué son fans, porque no podría entender que llegaran hasta aquí si no les gusta esta saga, pero creo que aunque todos se quejan de los incontables libros de esta saga y el hecho de que no parece tener fin, nos olvidamos de que la más grande fan de los hermanos Maddox es Jamie y es que no sólo a escrito mil libros de ellos, también están los que le faltan y su fanficcion/canon que escribe en wattpad y creo que cuando te mete

Dopo aver dedicato almeno una storia a ciascun giovane Maddox, in L'Ultimo Disastro ritroviamo tutti i protagonisti al completo per il gran finale (per ora..)!

This is a hard review to write, because there are things I want to say, but pretty much anything that talks about specific characters will be a spoiler. So I’m going to try very hard to be as vague as possible, but still make a valiant effort to convince any fan of Jamie McGuire’s work that they need to read this book.

First of all, I was scared s***less going into A Beautiful Funeral. I mean, I contemplated skipping to the end (which is absolute blasphemy in my opinion) just so I wouldn’t be bl

' 1 estrela pela capa'

Eu não entendo o que essa autora quer fazer mais nessa série. Ela deveria parar por que está ficando feio. Jamie tinha tudo para ter ficado só no Travis e ser muito bem elogiada, mas ela decidiu escrever os irmãos Maddox que foi uma porcaria a cada livro e agora me vem com o funeral. Ah vá O.o

I'm a huge fan of the Maddox boys, so it pains me to say that I did not love this book. Yes, I knew it would be sad, and it was. What I didn't count on was all the drama. While the characters reactions were realistic and warranted, it was all too much. I am happy with the way the other books ended and to me, this was an unnecessary book. If you're on the fence about reading this and are happy with the ending of the other books, I would recommend skipping this one. There are some happy moments, b ...more

I pretty much gave up on Jamie's writing. I could not get into the Maddoxes brothers' stories. And this one cemented it for me. I skimmed a lot and pretty much knew who the funeral was for. It really only made sense and the hints weren't really hints but huge truths. There was one death that was completely overlooked and that was sad. So much potential with that story. Had she not glossed over it. Well I hope we've seen the last of this Family. Travis and Abby were unrecognizable
