Another Book

So, this one I read in a little over 24 hours.

love walked in: Marisa de los Santos

It seems I agree with the Washington Post: ' the kind of book that makes you want to hunker down on a chilly day in a comfy chair and read straight through until dark'

The problem is, I read it way too fast. I skimmed in the beginning because there was just much to much reference to old movies. I understand now why it was there, but it irritated me, in part because she gave away endings to old movies I haven't seen! Of course, I could also look at it as recommendations for movies to see... so I'll try and do that.

I kind of feel like I fast forwarded a movie. I got the gist and I read certain parts slowly...but not enough in depth. My overall vision of the book is that it was actually quite good. Real characters. Believable situations. Etc.

I liked this: "knowing what you love and why is as real as it gets."

Hmm...might be a girly book. But it's good.

Hmmmmm...'might' be a girlie book?

Sounds like one.
I may have to investigate the other book though. NOT that I NEED another one on the stack(s)...

Sounds like we might read the same. If I find myself 'skimming' too much, I just stop reading. I mean, what's the point?

But kudos to you for sticking it out.
