Hi everyone! This is Julia of The Broke and the Bookish, formerly blogging on my own at The Competitive Bibliomaniac.
I read mostly historical romance, but can often be found reviewing paranormal romance, young adult books (mostly distopian/fantasy), fantasy/sci-fi, classics, and the occasional non-fiction book about languages.
Feel free to follow and reblog!
I just could not get into this book. The narrator, Joe, bothered the hell out of me. He wasn't too horrid to read when there wasn't dialog, but the dialog was atrocious. People do not talk like that. The one line that really stuck out at me was something like this.
"I miss you, Alvin" "You too are the one that I miss"
I got 50 pages in and I couldn't go on. I have a bad habit of reading books that have my name in it, but this one I just couldn't.
It may be a book for someone, but just not me.
