Books I couldn’t finish
Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel
This reminded me of Joanne Harris’s Chocolat, but I just didn’t get into the magical realism that is such a heavy element of the story.
Empress of the World by Sarah Ryan
I just couldn’t get into this story, the characters a little too much precocious teen snark for me.
The Monthly Round-up is a regular feature wherein I list the books I read each month.
