I finished my #friendrecchallenge last month. Things were pretty meh this year. I bailed on Limit and the other 2 that I did finish I didn‘t really care for either which surprised me. Oh well, I‘d still like to give this a go again next year. It‘s fun seeing what my friends pick and why they pick it. I‘ll probably institute a page limit next time though. I don‘t really want to get stuck reading any chunksters that don‘t appeal to me again.🤷🏽‍♀️

BarbaraBB Seems an interesting challenge! Are they IRL friends or Litsy ones? (edited) 2w
shadowspeak17 @BarbaraBB One‘s an online friend, but he‘s not on Litsy unfortunately. The other two are irl friends. 2w

Bailedbailed

I honestly could rant about how unpleasant it was to read this book for hours, but my three main complaints/reasons for bailing are:
1. Poor writing/translation made things awkward and confusing
2. Waaaaaaaaaaay too much sexism
3. It‘s really boring
Mostly 2 though. The descriptions of the women were gross and made my skin crawl. 😖
I was reading this for my #friendrecchallenge which is the only reason I stuck with it for 475 pages, but ⬇️

shadowspeak17 there‘s no way I could take the remaining 774. I‘m done. Good riddance. 1mo
chaoticgoodhufflepuff Life‘s too short to read grossly sexist books! Good on you! 🍾 Hope your next read is much more enjoyable for you! 1mo

1. It‘s my last #friendrecchallenge book, but I‘m honestly not feeling it... and I still have 1,000 pages left... I don‘t want to bail but things aren‘t looking good. 🙃
2. Probably nothing special.
3. I‘ve been really into Blue Bell‘s Butter Crunch recently. 😋👍🏽
4. The only one I can play well is the flute. I‘m also competent on piccolo, and I know some extremely basic piano and ukulele. 😂

⭐️⭐️1/2
As I expected, this wasn‘t really my thing. The writing was fine and it was a quick read and I was pleased to find that there was no romance. But I also found it pretty predictable, the characters got on my nerves more often than not, and I just didn‘t care much about them. In the end, I don‘t totally hate that I read this, but I don‘t plan on giving book two a go either. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Just started this for my #friendrecchallenge. It honestly doesn‘t really sound like my thing, but I‘m trying to keep an open mind. 😅 I‘m still reading Limit as well, so I‘ve got my last two friend rec books going at once. Limit has been putting me off a bit though with its descriptions of female characters. 😒 Not a great sign, and I‘ve still got A LOT to go...

Finally getting around to starting this #chunkster for my #friendrecchallenge. I‘ve been hesitant to start it since the last few chunksters I‘ve read have disappointed me and this one‘s even longer than those were. 🙃 It‘s time though. Fingers crossed I actually enjoy this one. 🤞🏽😬

Well, I‘ve finally completed one book for my #friendrecchallenge. Unfortunately, I can‘t say I enjoyed it much. I can feel my boyfriend‘s disappointment already and I haven‘t even told him yet. 😅 I wanted to like this, but I was honestly bored through most of it. The story seemed to ramble, and I never really felt invested in what was happening.
