This post is sponsored by Warner Bros. Pictures’ THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU, but all thoughts are my own.
When I was offered the chance to check out the book This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper before the movie comes out on September 19, I chuckled at the timeliness. Why is this book and movie so timely? I’ve just spent the last 5 weeks sharing a home with most of my own grown siblings (plus my parents and a ton of grandchildren).
I cannot wait to get home and start reading the book (and laughing. I know there will be laughing).

Books are so much better when you can discuss them with someone else. I have enjoyed many hours spent discussing books (and getting on very fun tangents) with my old book club buddies.
Plus, I always love reading a book before seeing the movie (don’t you agree?). You can join Warner Bros. Pictures’ #TIWILY book discussion on the film’s Facebook page each Wednesday, and take part in the conversation for a chance to win signed movie posters and a trip to the premiere in Hollywood! (And believe me when I say that Hollywood premieres are so exciting!)
About This is Where I Leave You:
When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.
The dramatic comedy “This is Where I Leave You” is directed by Shawn Levy, and based on the hilarious and poignant best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper. It features a starring ensemble cast including Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman (“Arrested Development”); Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Tina Fey (“30 Rock”); and two-time Oscar® winner, multiple Golden Globe honoree and 2013 Emmy Award nominee Jane Fonda (“Klute,” “Coming Home,” HBO’s “The Newsroom”).
