I didn‘t care for this book. It was kind of boring and not what I thought it‘d be. Essentially, the story of two selfish young people that can‘t have a relationship that is functional in the real world. @Bookishgal71 , it‘s on it‘s way to you later this week. #lmpbc #groupq @JenlovesJT47 @mklong

To my #jb people...how do you organize the addresses? I‘m trying to find a good system. I also want to be able to find the birthdays easily. #jb

Ugh! This book was so good! Such an array of complex characters and emotions. This book left me emotionally raw. I was able to relate to so many of the characters and still loved them even when I was angry at their choices. The exception being Ernt. I started off sympathetic but ended up hating what he‘d become and probably had been for a while. Probably very similar to the way Leni felt. My only complaint is way too much foreshadowing.

I wanted to like this book. I know a lot of people loved it and I‘d had it on my TBR for a while. Unfortunately, I just did not like the main character. I feel like the author tried so hard to make her socially inept that she came off as rude, judgmental and hypocritical. I do have empathy and compassion for the character, but I still found it difficult to like her. I did however love Raymond! Also, I figured out the twist early and easily.#lmpbc

huntersmom1977 It‘s always nice to see someone who felt the exact same way about a book! I detested her attitude and also figured the plot out from the start. Happy Reading tho 😊 2y
