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, really wanted to like this book. Really. The cover is gorgeous and the summary sounds right up my alley, but I just could not get into it. The main reason was the style in which it’s told. I think the author was going for a unique writing style but it felt really forced for me. There was also a lot of telling not showing. The characters felt a little silly. The dialogue between Danny and Holland made me roll my eyes repeatedly. So yeah, I really wanted to like it, but it just didn’t happen.
Here are some people that loved it:
This one is another case of I wanted to like it soooo much but….I usually like quirky reads quite a bit, but I had a horrible time with this one. It may have just been my mood, but the story is pretty odd and slow to begin with. It probably would have picked up, but I completely lost the urge to pick it up and eventually gave up on it.

If you would like to participate in Book Breakups then go right ahead! Link back to me. I would also love it if you linked to some positive reviews in your breakup posts. That way everyone gets both side of the story.
