Book Reviews: October 2016

Monday, October 31, 2016

October was one of those months where I just couldn't get into anything.  I started and stopped about 4 books before finally finishing one.  Hopefully November will be better since the SCWBC starts on the 1st.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I had a hard time rating this book.  I struggled with the beginning of the book, it took me weeks to read it.  Once I got about halfway through, I started to enjoy it a bit more and read the second half in an afternoon.  My first struggle was that it seemed to center around babies and pregnancy which just isn't my thing because I don't want kids, so I can really relate to people who want them badly.  It was a little hard to connect with the characters because of this.   My other struggle was all of the drama.  I can't say much without ruining the book, but it was just a bit too much for me and not the light Christmas read I expected.   I did enjoy the setting and the Christmas town, I had no trouble imagining it in my head.   After viewing some reviews on GoodReads my opinion seems to be the minority, most people really loved it.  I was just looking for and in the mood for something lighter.  I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good romance. 
I gave this book a 3/5 on my GoodReads.
