Books & Chocolate

I love to read just about anything, as long as it's fiction. I read for me - that means I read what I want, when I want. My reviews tend to mostly be based on how I'm able to personally connect with the story/characters. They are not intended to influence someone to read, or not read, a particular book. I always encourage people to take a chance and make up your own mind.


Oh, and I love chocolate.

Luckiest Girl Alive

Luckiest Girl Alive - Jessica Knoll

I'm really disappointed I didn't like this book more than I did. I was just 'meh' for me. I even felt let down by the twists and turns the synopsis promised me. Nothing in the book surprised me. I felt the characters were a bit flat. They were somewhat unique (except the fact that they were all terrible people), but they kind of felt like 'plug and play' characters. Like saying, "Oh, I have this psychological thriller so that means I need all unlikable characters. I'll take one tormented fat kid, one anorexic, one jock, one embarrassing mother, oh and can't forget the emotionally detached father!" There were, of course, more characters, but they all fit in the plug and play formula. I read to the end so I can't say I hated it, I just wished I liked it more.
