Weekly wrap-up: Februay 16-22

This week was a mad scramble to attend events, work, and pack before my big road trip Thursday so not a lot of reading or blogging got done, and sadly, I wasn't thrilled with any of the books I did read. I started listening to Gorgeous by Paul Rudnick, and I'm sure it's going to be an awesome book, but I haven't read it yet, and the audiobook isn't the best. I think I'm going to have to postpone the audio until I can read it.

Tiger Lily - Jodi Lynn Anderson: 2 stars. I can't say I wasn't warned. This book started off soooo slowwwly. I had a really hard time getting into it to the point that I wondered if I should abandon it. I just wasn't feeling the characters, and there wasn't exactly a primary plot going on, just a series of events that happened to or because of Tiger Lily.

Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell, Rebecca Lowman & Sunil Malhotra: 3.5 stars. Regular E&P got 4 stars from me, possibly 4.5, but the audio just wasn't what I exactly wanted. Again, I was distracted by Rebecca reading for Eleanor because in my mind, she's Cath from fangirl. Sunil's character voices weren't distinct enough, but I did love his voices for both of Park's parents, who are wonderful. I gotta say, listening to this audiobook in the car on a long trip with lots of construction wasn't the smartest idea I've ever had because of course I cried. That ending! I mean, how can you not?!

  1. I can't believe that you didn't like Tiger Lily! I haven't read it yet but I've heard from so many people who loved it. Everyone has their own tastes I guess!
