lisa's reviews

Reading is the only thing in the world I am good at. A lifetime of reading, fifteen years of working in bookstores, and libraries, and an obsession with the written word makes me qualified enough to talk someone's ear off about books.  Now I am getting more ARCs than I have room for in the house.  Let me get back to reading them!

Please Don't Tell - Elizabeth Adler The more I think about it, the more this author reminds me of a high school girl writing fan fiction. The writing just isn't done well. I can't even remember why I was excited to read this book, but I was, and now I feel like I've wasted my time. The writing was bad, the dialogue was bad, the characters were bad, the plot was bad. After struggling to read 100 pages (rolling my eyes the whole way at the stilted conversations, awkward internal thoughts, and ridiculous circumstances) I gave up and skipped to the end. The killer was who I thought it would be since the character was introduced.
