For some inexplicable reason I have been completely unable to connect with contemporary romance and chick-lit. So I am breaking up with the genre. We're parting ways (amicably) and will hopefully make amends some day.
Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever found yourself unable to connect with a specific genre? If so, which one?
The straw that broke the camel's back? Just Like Me, Only Better by Carol Snow.
I received it for review awhile back and despite my best efforts I just can not make it work for me. It is an cute light book. But even after a 100 pages I could not find the drive to read on.
Which leads me to my revelation, it's not you chick-lit, it's me...
Dear contemporary romance and chick-lit,It's not you. It's me. We have to break-up you see. For years you made me smile, but really you just bug me now. So in the immortal words of Motley Crue, "Don't go away mad, just go away."Signed no longer yours,Tales of Whimsy...
Sadly, I have been unable to fulfill my obligations to Just Like Me, Only Better. So I turn to you my sweets for help. I would like to offer you (my stupendous reading audience) an opportunity to win my copy gently used ARC.
The catch? The winner promises to read it, review it, and post it on your book blog within 1 month of receiving the book.
If you live in the US or Canada and do not mind my stipulation, comment with your email address below. I will select a winner this coming Saturday, May 29th, 2010.
