Author: Tarryn Fisher
Sourced: Snagged on Amazon, mostly because I needed it fast but first learned about this book from The Stripe’s Book Club list
Meows: 3.78 out of 5. Not quite a solid four because you really do end up hating every character at some point.
Life has certainly picked up since March, but the main reason for a few missing reviews this spring is because I ran into a few DNFs (did not finish). I think it’s just as important to talk about why I couldn’t finish a book, as much as why I choose to finish a book. Below a few misses for me, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give them a try as they all came as recommendations.
