Recently I have been accused of bullying for posting another negative review. Again, reading and reviewing is a very subjective matter. A review reflects my opinion. It reflects my feelings and it will always reflect why I enjoyed a book or why I didn't like it. With that said, I would appreciate it immensely when those authors and readers who don't appreciate my take on a book would stop wasting their time by reading my reviews and posting vicious comments.
Thank you. Just to make this very clear: it was NOT Samantha Young who accused me of bullying, however, I wanted to add this side note to my review to point out that I have a right to express my honest opinion. Jo's mother is unbelievable. Enough said. Maybe I could add that I'm going to dedicate a special shelf to Can't even remember her name anymore. You can't blame me, though, because she is so forgettable. It picked up a bit but I never really got invested in the story.
When I read Does someone have a Word of the Day calendar? Was I ever wrong though. Let's talk about inconsistencies. Our heroine is twenty-four years old, however, I wanted to yell at her to grow up already. She is responsible for her wee brother's well-being, she looks after him and does a fairly good job as far as I can judge, but at the same time she comes across as insecure, whiny, needy, and totally immature.
She is even bad-mouthing herself. Can you believe it? I'm not good at many things, Joss. I'm not a scholar like Ellie or a writer like you. I'm a girlfriend. I'm a good girlfriend and my boyfriend likes to show his appreciation by being generous with his money. Two: Do you realize you pretty much described yourself as a glorified whore?
Grow a pair already! So, our heroine who has a major history of hooking up with rich men is not good at many things but she is a good girlfriend. Not a bit of it! The money issue bugged me. Granted, Malcolm didn't pay her bills but there's no getting round to state the fact that the money was on her mind. I felt it was some kind of golden parachute; the dough just kept lurking in a corner of her mind.
Well, I guess you need to keep 'em warm, right? Let's be honest, I call that an occasional f ck buddy. Come to think of it, she doesn't even spend the night with her "boyfriend" because after the deed is done she is leaving his flat to go home to her brother and mom.
They tell each other "I care about you. And I swear I really did care about my hamster when I was a kid. Sorry for being a tiny bit sarcastic, but there is a difference between caring for someone and loving someone. It was very obvious that she didn't love him and she didn't want him anymore. She was, however, way too chickenshit to address the issue. I must admit the "mental" cheating was crap-tastic!
Congrats, Jo, you outdid yourself! The sex must have been very boring or the man when you need to think about another guy to get off. Can't remember that I've had another dude on my mind while in the throes of passion. Besides, she hasn't dumped her so-called boyfriend and yet she has no shame whatsoever to spend time and have fun with Cam.
Plus, she was shamelessly lying to herself and to her friends all. Does she not have any self-respect? Of course that goes the other way round too. Right, Cam? My own hand smoothed over my stomach, slipping under my pajamas and knickers so I could bring myself to climax, fantasizing about Cam screwing me against Su's desk. I muffled my moan as I came and once the tremors stopped, I curled into my side, guilt cascading over me once again.
I was a terrible girlfriend. I couldn't agree more! I closed my eyes and imagined Cam. I came each time. Malcolm took this to mean he and I were back on track and whatever had been bothering me before was dealt with.
I was an awful, awful person. My world was full of color. Red for want.
