She Reads Too Much

There are a million other things I should be doing with my time...cleaning my house, riding my motorcycle, cooking my family dinner, talking to my Mother on the phone. But I can't. I just....can't. There are too many good books to read.

Currently reading

The Forsaken (The Survivor Chronicles #3)
Erica Stevens
The Skin Map

You Can't Go Home Again

You Can't Go Home Again - Michael Murphy image

Sadly, another miss for me by this author.

Nothing horrible about the book but there were a lot of times I felt as though I was reading lists. Lists of emotions. Lists of actions. Lists of events.

I never quite felt the grief these three characters were feeling after the loss of Kevin. While I bought the connection between Jack and Kevin and actually really appreciated the path their relationship took, the slow burn, it never felt like a romance. The entire book was actually more like a family drama.

And as a family drama it worked alright.

However, for me, it fell flat as a romance. If I remember correctly, there were like two brief kisses in the entire book and I know for sure there was no on page sex.

So while it wasn't my cup of tea and I didn't feel like it was a romance, other people may enjoy it as a family drama.

I'm hanging up my guinea pig hat for awhile.
