Tomorrow is a Long Time by Tabitha Vohn
Tomorrow Is A Long Time - Tabitha Vohn

I wish I could say that I loved this story and it entertained me. I can't. The premise was an interesting concept but, in the end, not much different from your average love story. Very little was explained about the time travel and its possibilities. Nothing very scientific to it at all. I'm not big on romance unless there's an interesting plot line. Lots of potential here but I couldn't take much more of the undying love confessions. I never understand stories where lovers fall madly in love in a week or shortly after their first encounter and profess undying love forever and ever. Even weirder here is a young girl madly, obsessively in love with a movie star she has fantasized over her entire life and upon meeting, both feel an otherworldly pull to each other. That meeting occurs when she's twenty three and movie star guy is EIGHTY FIVE. Nah. I don't buy it. Not one moment of it. I'm sorry. It was just kind of icky. The entirety of the book was spent trying to convince me otherwise. Nope. I'm over it. Mildly entertaining.

Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler
Vinegar Girl: A Novel (Hogarth Shakespeare) - Anne Tyler

I enjoyed Tyler's story, a retelling of Shakespeare's classic The Taming of the Shrew. To be honest, I've never read Shakespeare's version so I am unable to comment between the variation. I will say this, I was entertained and enjoyed the battle of the sexes theme. An uncomplicated story, with an ending that made me smile.

 

 

 

*I was provided with a free copy of this book through Blogging for Books for review purposes. Many thanks!

PRINCESS ZARA = DNF
Princess Zara (Illustrated Edition) (Dodo Press) - Ross Beeckman

I'm sorry, classic book. I just can't read another boring word. I'm DNF'ing this one before I poke my eyes out. I should've been able to stick it out. At only 166 pages, this isn't a long story. The one thing it isn't short on...BOREDOM. It's official. I've DNF'ed my first book of the year.

HOOKED by Allen Wolf
Hooked - Michael Allen Wolf

I found this book on Goodreads and liked the synopsis. Eventually, the book was offered in a giveaway and I was fortunately chosen as a winner. Yay, me! The book-mail arrived quickly and I opened it up immediately, smiling like a happy kid when I noticed the book had been signed by Wolf, with a lovely inscription. Then I read the first couple of paragraphs and too quickly set it aside. Sometimes moods alter my reading experience because when I picked this same book up a week later I. Couldn't. Put. It. Down. Shawn, the story's autistic protagonist, stole my heart. His honest, unfiltered opinions made me laugh out loud. His search for Mrs. Right became my search. While Shawn's choice is surprising, it completely works here. A charming book.

 

Wolf has written a story with a strong message. Faith goes a long way. There's hope for everyone. And, like Wolf's inscription in the first few pages of my book,

"Love conquers

 all."

 

 

 

*I won a copy through a Goodreads giveaway and was provided an ARC by the author. I also received a DRC through NetGalley right before winning a physical copy. Thanks for both.

This book captured my heart unexpectedly. Shawn's innocence and lack of social filter has delivered some great laughs. Liking it a lot. =)
