This book is very well written. It has a good shot at winning the Pulitzer this year. It's critically acclaimed and quite popular. Why couldn't I get into it?? Whyyyy? This is one of those books that I should like. It fell solidly in the "just okay" column for me.
I was a wreck while reading this! Seriously, so many feelings. So tender, so heartbreaking. Also? I wouldn't go back to high school for all the tea in China. (Yea, I use that phrase. Even though I don't drink tea and I'm not 75 years old. Shut up.)
I've been watching Pretty Little Liars with my youngest daughter. We recently bought the first four books. As soon as she was done with the first one I grabbed it. I didn't expect it to be quite as enjoyable as it was. It was nice being able to compare notes with my kidlet as well.
