The next afternoon, I decide to explore the town on my own since my schedule is free.

Since my exams have finished I‘m clearly averaging at a book a day, and I don‘t think that will stop anytime soon!

Its another wildly unrealistic romance novel, which is full of every trope in the book but sometimes that‘s just what you need 😂the relationship feels more in-depth than others I‘ve read. I loved Mac changing her people pleasing ways and following what she truly wants!

This ended up medium for me. All the characters annoyed me and the side characters all felt SO one dimensional, but I liked the writing style and the pacing overall. I think I‘d definitely read another book by the same author and I felt quite swept up in the ending. I just wish there‘d been a bit more depth to the characters and that the main pair had been, well, desirable or interesting.

I‘m around halfway through this one and struggling a bit. I keep feeling like I‘m nearly enjoying it but the characters are just annoying me. It seems to be so popular though, I‘m wondering if anyone else had that problem?

Nute This has happened to me before. I was enjoying a book very much so, but could never form a fondness for the characters. It‘s okay if the characters are not suppose to be like-able, but what about when the characters are supposedly good people?🤷🏽‍♀️ 5mo
KristiAhlers Yeah I bought this one too. Started it and put it back on the bookshelf because it just wasn‘t working for me. Which surprises me as I‘ve loved her other series. I was hoping it was just I wasn‘t in the mood for that book at the time. 5mo
Sharpeipup I couldn‘t finish it. I hated all of the characters. 5mo

~Quick Friday audiobook~

Attempting to watch Lord of the Rings for the first time this weekend. I know I‘m probably the last person alive who hasn‘t seen or read them.

Are the books or movies better?

MaureenMc I loved the movies, could barely make it through the first book (Fellowship). 😬 I have many friends who love both the movies and books. 😁 5mo
TracyReadsBooks My mom read The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring to my sisters and I when we were little so all the books have been lifelong favorites of mine. That being said, I really really love the movies and rewatch them frequently. 5mo
Ruthiella Second to last person. I‘ve not seen the films yet either . 😆 I read the books dogs years ago. But I‘ve heard from hardcore fans of the books that the films are awesome! 5mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I haven‘t seen it either!! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🙈🙊 5mo

I ended up enjoy this one more than I originally though. I‘m so happy that Mackenzie found the strength to stand up to the d-bag.

Mostly enjoying this far, but reading time has been minimal. I‘m exhausted and tired and work is making too irritated to focus on other more fun things.

Johanna414 I saw this post and thought, "I wonder if she's a teacher?" Sure enough... 7mo
kimmypete1 @Johanna414 😂😂😂 I sure am! I love being a teacher, but it‘s not easy. This week I felt like alllll my buttons were pushed. It‘s all good now, I have a nice weekend planned and will be relaxed and refreshed for Monday. 7mo
Johanna414 Some days are definitely a challenge! Our district does a week off in February, so I'm hoping everyone is feeling ready to start fresh on Monday. It was a rough couple weeks before break! 7mo
kimmypete1 @Johanna414 I‘m jealous! I would love a week off in February. Teachers/Students/Admin, we‘re all exhausted, and we still have 5 weeks before break. 7mo

I‘m going to pan this even though I almost bailed. I actually scanned from about 10% on. I took this as a light-hearted romcom from its cover. But no. This is a revenge romance/rich girl, poor boy trope filled with mean-spirited, immature young adults (early 20s). Cooper, a local “townie” bartender fights Preston, a “clone” rich college boy who becomes too handsy with his waitress friend. Cooper is fired. He and his “high school” friends plot 🔻

robinb revenge by having Cooper “take” Preston‘s gf Mackenzie away from him. What are we, six-years-old on the playground??! Reading about a bunch of immature friends sitting around and laughingly plan for Mac‘s fall and Preston‘s humiliation is not my idea of an entertaining book. This whole story felt like it might have been written two decades ago, with “hot”, testosterone-driven guys racking up conquests left and right, whether by foul or fair 🔻 (edited) 9mo
robinb means. Ugh!! Yes, there was a HEA, but after wading through the mire, cheating and lots of “hotness”, it wasn‘t worth much to me. 1/5⭐️ (edited) 9mo

Fun romance with a heroine who is more than she first appears. #ARC #netgalley
