bookshelves: disappointing, reviewed-books
Read in November, 2005

I totally thought I would love this book when I first picked it up. I mean this is the lady that wrote 'The Secret Life of Bees', how could I not love it, ya know?

Yeah, it just didn't do it for me. It totally rubbed me the wrong way. I found it irritating and all that jazz. Most novels about forbidden romance /finding one's self tick me off. Books about middle-aged women, gettin' it on with monks-in-training, tick me off too. So yeah, I am so glad I checked it out from the library and didn't actually buy it.

Sorry if I sound harsh. I am only harsh/nasty because my kids are DRIVING ME UP THE WALL right now!!!

BTW, are you interested in adopting a cute curly haired toddler with a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde personality?


Christina Absolutely! I love your crazy kids!
