  1. Funny that the book only has 216 pages and the reviewer reached page 762. Obviously she liked it a lot have read it 3 times!! I’d take this review with a grain of salt as doesn’t appear to have a lot of validity to it.

    1. LOL It’s a Kindle page… On the Kindle you have in total of 2465 pages (still a short book).
      But as I said… People click to all sorts of books and even though I didn’t liked this book, someone else can love it (that’s how reading works) and that is what so great about reading.
      There are books for everyone 🙂 Like I loved Harry Potter so much and my best friend hates that books and that’s okay. We are not all meant to love and hate the same books.


  2. Ohw man Im sorry it wasnt of your liking ! I know the feeling hhaa I didnt read the book but yeah if I find a book Meeh its hard for me to continue 🙈 -Trang

    1. It is so hard not to finish a book and before I ever started with reviewing book I always finished book (well… most of them i liked a lot, lol). But yes, if I see that I need to read it a few times and still not able to finish… it’s time to put it aside 😀

    1. Yeah I know, I do that too. I have tried to read it a few times, but I couldn’t. I think that I couldn’t connect to the characters and that’s where it fell for me mostly.

        1. I am taking a bit of a break with book reviews for Heena as after London we are entering tons of holidays, lol.
          But yes, I hope so too 😀
          I do want to finish writing the review for the book: A court of thorn and roses. But after that… I think I will take a little break from reading (just a bit).

              We are going to land on the 5th and we will arrive to the hotel at 8am, I think.

            2. I’ve just started a Marian Keyes book… it’s called The Woman Who Stole My Life. Just started it so still getting into it – I’m a huge fan of Marian so hoping it’s as good as the rest of her reads 😀
              Oh wow – that’s soooo close, you’re gonna have an amazing time 🙂 Hope you’re getting packed up already – I’d probably have my bags sat ready at the door!! lol Bring your thermals, it’s a little cooler than you might be used to at the mo hehe xxx
