did not like it
bookshelves: did-not-finish

I really hope this shelf stays small because I try very hard to finish every book I start.

I just could not finish Just Between Us. It was very poorly written, childish almost. It tried very hard to be descriptive but the amount of detail was so overwhelming it would make me feel dizzy at times. It would have been fine with so much less detail. Every character was introduced in one big run on paragraph rather than Kelly slowly introducing them throughout the book. There was so much time spent describing each and every character, I felt like I got their whole life story and that includes most of the very minor characters. The book tried to be witty and funny but it fell flat. When a character would respond sarcastically (and it was obvious) Kelly would write "she said sarcastically". It was just painful to read and I felt like there were so many better books out there so I just put this one down.
