After 2 DNFs in a row, I just want a good, get-lost-in, palette cleaning, read. Reading Jill Shalvis is like hanging out with old friends - you know it's going to a fun, enjoyable, relaxing time.

The writing was terrible. I had to keep rereading sentences because they just didn't make sense. Took hours just to get to page 18. #HailTheBail

On a positive note: I got a second bingo on my January #BookSpinBingo board 😁 @TheAromaofBooks

At first I was like bitch, I'm livin' the daily minutiae of family life I don't need it in my books, too. But then the characters grabbed me and I was in. It ended up being the cosy, escape read I wanted with a few happy tears shed 😊

Mehso-so

I'm really torn between a pick and so-so. I think I went into it with very high expectations to love it, and I just ... didn't. After a while the reading became a slog like Harold's walk.

This is the second Joyce book I've read and the second time I came away feeling like there's just a little something missing that's making it difficult for me to connect with the characters.

Very interesting and informative; as well as entertaining with sprinkles of humor throughout.

The only thing that bothered me was the over-simplified explanation of cognitive dissonance and self-justification being the sole reasons behind people in power not copping to their mistakes.
