October ReadSaturday, November 12, 2016
Out to Lunch by Stacey Ballis|432 pages, It started Ok then as the story progress, I began to dislike Jenna. She constantly whines about her dead friend's husband to her friends or to any people available to listen to her never-ending rant. She also hears her dead friend's voice from her head from time to time. I can tolerate that, What I can't is, she engaged in a long conversation with that voice while having a conversation with a live character. That was insane. At 100 pages done, I had to stop and put the book down.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins|336 pages, I wanted to like this book but I can't. It took me awhile to finish it because I keep on falling asleep. Passing out while reading is a bad sign. It only means that the story is uninteresting to me that made me fall asleep and also all the characters were unlikable from start to finished. Period.
Letters to a Love Rat by Niamh Greene|325 pages, The format was interesting (reminds me of The girl on the train which I didn't like) 3 women all connected with the same guy. A good-for-nothing casanova. I like how these 3 women are different from each other and the only thing they have in common is the guy who happens to be a "love rat". It is a light read and I thoroughly enjoyed this novel.
