Hellllllllooooo! I'm back, baby! My vacation was great. I'm so tan and relaxed. Winter did not go away here though and I can see that my tan will fade pretty fast. I had so many bookish plans that did not come to fruition. I tried to read but it was so much more fun to nap. I did a lot of napping.
I abandoned two books, actually. Maybe it's because I'm for-taaaay now and don't have the patience but I just can't give anymore attention to books I'm not enjoying. Here are the books and why I dropped them like it's hot.
Unleashing Mr Darcy. I really wanted to like this one but the Mr Darcy in question was such a drag. He's a dog show judge and I would expect a guy in that position to be more fun and less brooding. You judge dogs, dude! Also the heroine was too wishy-washy. Abandoned at 56%
How Stella Got Her Groove Back. Ugh, Stella. Stella is a pain in the ass. She's narrow minded and stubborn. Some of her ideas are so antiquated and granny-like. I swear to God she's 42 and thinks she's 82. I don't know why young Winston would want to hang out with such a crabby-pants. Maybe he has Granny issues. Trust me, I have no problems with Cougars being Cougars but I don't care if Stella got her groove back or not. Abandoned at 51%. (I hear the movie is much better.)
I'm just glad I bought these books with a coupon. Maybe it was because I was on vacation but I wanted to spend time with people who were having fun and enjoying life. These weren't the characters for that, especially Stella. It's like she went out of her way to be awful.
I really hope I can get my reading groove back though.
