We can’t all love everything and some books just aren’t for me. Sometimes I try really hard to love a book but if it’s taking me 4 days to read 100 pages, we need to have the talk. I debated quite a while on whether or not to do this feature, but I thought it would be fun, so Book Breakups was born.
I really liked The Goddess Test. I honestly didn’t have extremely high hopes for it, but I ended up devouring it and loving every page. The same cannot be said for Goddess Interrupted. I’m not sure how far I made it in the book but I don’t think it was very far before Kate’s whiny-ness and self-doubt grated on my nerves. Nothing makes me put down a book faster than whiny main characters. Plus, I really, really dislike when I am made to love a couple in one book then in the next one that relationship has a million problems/isn’t as happy as it was etc. That was also the case in this one. I don’t like spending 300 or so pages waiting for a couple to get together, then they do….then repeat that all in the next book. Ugh. Anyway, many people adored this book. I’ll prove it:
You guys are going to throw rocks at me for breaking up with this one, aren’t you? I really, REALLY wanted to love it. Everyone does! I loooved Roswell and this is kind of comparable. I think my problem with it is that I’m kind of tired of the asshole sexy bad boy thing. Why can’t guys just be nice? Maybe I’m just getting old and losing patience with the bad boys. This is one of those books that I feel guilty about giving up on since so many people love it. I just couldn’t do it, though. But seriously don’t take my word for it!
