Yea! I won another book!

I got an email this morning letting me know I won Nora Roberts' Going Home from . Thanks Beth!

Last week I read Sundays at Tiffany's by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet. It was a win from . (Thanks Megan!) It had received rave reviews from every blog site it was featured on and I was excited to read it. I have to say I was disappointed in the writing style. I think it was written on a teenager's reading level which is not what I expected. The story line was okay - a lonely child has an imaginary friend, an adult male,(?) who leaves on her 9th birthday. She never forgets him and her life is never very satisfactory. She meets him again when she's 32 and the story evolves from there. The book continually switched between her telling the story and him which kept breaking it up. All and all, I was disappointed.

Glad you received the book okay, but I'm sorry you weren't crazy for the book! I've read mixed reviews. I have to admit I haven't started it yet -- my TBR stack is so big, it gets overwhelming. Hopefully I can start it soon!

Thanks for stopping by Megan. No need for you to be sorry, it wasn't your fault and I appreciated winning the book. My tastes generally run more to Stephen King and Dean Koontz but I like a romance occasionally just for a break. This one was just difficult to read and when I stop to think about it, I think the whole idea is kind of strange (the ADULT male friend), ya know? I'm no authority on imaginary friends but aren't they usually other kids?
