Turning the Tide #100Books

This was kindly sent to me for review by ChocLitUK for the 100 book challenge. I’m also going to enter ChickLitPlus challenge to read 12 chick lit books in a year, and this is number 1 🙂

Perhaps it’s because I’ve been reading so many books of such a varied type in such a short time, but I actually found this one rather hard to focus on. It seemed to just slightly miss the mark – moved a little too slowly to draw me in to the story, yet didn’t use the extra time to build the characters. A little superficial I guess I’m saying. A shame, as all the ingredients were right, and there is little obviously wrong to pick up on, perhaps it was all just a little too safe?

Nevertheless, I would look out for and give a go to others by this author, as overall it was certainly a pleasant enough read when I did get right down to it.

Book 44 of 100.

The boring small print…If you don’t want to miss out on any of the news on the challenge, please sign up to my rss feed – there’s an email link over in the side, or you can sub with a reader. I’m also on twitter using the hashtag #100books and facebook.

If you want to donate, please feel free, there’s a link in the sidebar or you can use this one. If you’d like to join in with your own version of the challenge, please leave me a comment to let me know so that I can link to you. And also, the booklink above is an affiliate link, but it’s set up with its own tracking id, so anything bought via a 100 book challenge link is separate to those usually on my blog, and I’ll be donating that money through to Oxfam as well.
