Book Review: Find You in the Dark by A. Meredith Walters

November 25, 2013

Find You in the Dark (Find You in the Dark, #1)Find You in the Dark by A. Meredith Walters
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I don’t understand. This book has an overall rating of 4+ something on Goodreads. Why?

I definitely did not like this book.

The characters were the same people I’ve read about on many other books. On this book, though, they weren’t written to be more interesting. At all.

The heroine, Maggie, started out really great. I liked her right away. I disliked her just as fast. For someone who started out as a strong character, she ended up as a wimp, becoming too focused on the boyfriend who had way too many issues.

How can people mistake something very destructive as love?

I guess that’s how first love is supposed to be. However, don’t people realize that first love should be all about the experience, the highs, the good stuff. Anything this deep or massive or complicated really does not give a good influence or impression.

I don’t understand why a lot of readers liked this book. For me, it’s just a bit too ambitious. Plot was not getting anywhere. Conflict was not really interesting. Characters were all over the place. Lots of typographical and editing errors.

Book Review: Wallbanger by Alice Clayton

WallbangerWallbanger by Alice Clayton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book.

It has been a while since I read a book that made me laugh and feel like I was part of the clique.

Caroline, the heroine, was not at all like any girl found in fiction. She seemed like a real person, a practical romantic. A girl who could stand on her own, travel alone, and still enjoy the liberties of the modern world.

Simon, for all his harem’s worth, was a real enough guy who snores and eats a lot.

The friends were really great people. It makes you, as a reader, wish that you had friends like the ones in the book.

The chemistry was amazing.

The way that Alice Clayton wrote this book was different from the rest, which sets the book apart.

I think I found a new favorite author.
