Don’t hate Amanda Beesley because she had a swank engagement party, a gorgeous Martha’s Vineyard wedding, and a shabby-chic European honeymoon. (OK, hate her a little.) Instead, look past the frantic self-absorption that can befall any bride-to-be and appreciate Something New: Reflections on a the Beginnings of a Marriage for what it is: a charmingly candid take on what happens when a worldly urban couple decides to get hitched. What sets Something New apart from other oh-so-cutesy relationship diaries is the painful tale of Beesley’s mother, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s after the engagement. The result is a marriage memoir whose frothiness is balanced with bittersweet reality. B
