Sweet Talk (Buchanan-Renard, #10)Sweet Talk by Julie Garwood
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I would really like to say that I enjoyed this book – for many years Julie Garwood has been one of my favourite authors – but sadly I can’t.

I truthfully feel pretty bad saying this, but I couldn’t actually finish the book. I found the characters a bit undeveloped, the dialogue pretty bad, but most of all I felt like the writing itself was very amateur – bad amateur. It was like a different person had written this book.

Honestly, Julie Garwood was one of the first romance authors I ever read and I’ve loved pretty much every Garwood I’ve picked up. I expected no less from this book, but was left disappointed.

What happened to this usually wonderful author?

She has another book that came out after this one – Hotshots I think it’s called. I’m wary now about reading it and would be interested in the opinion of anyone who has already read it?

Please say Sweet Talk was a fluke.

Happy Reading

Happy 2014 Everyone

I’ve decided not to make New Year’s resolutions this year, at least not concrete ones. I think ideas or concepts for where I want to go might work better. Last year I made concrete goals – I partially reached some of them, but none were fully realised and I’m beginning to think that few people actually reach all the goals the set an the beginning of the year – it’s too much pressure – and failure just leaves us feeling disappointed in ourselves.

So ideas:
This year: I’m going to try and be more sociable (not saying I have to attend a certain number of events or make a new friend – just make an effort).

I’ll also make a real effort to be more disciplined about my writing – What this means I’m not exactly sure, but I’ll figure it out.

Last, but not least I’ll try to have more positive than negative thoughts.

There, that’s it: done and, hey, this blog is writing so I suppose I’m already on my way to concept number two.

Have a great 2014 everyone and just be happy and proud that we’ve all made it through another year.

Happy Reading
