FRIDAY'S FINISH IT OR FORGET IT
This book had dazzling reviews from both book bloggers and Goodreads alike. And I'm still trying to figure out why? But I literally could not go beyond page 50 of this one. There was clearly not going to be a whole lot of action in this one other than kissing and evil love triangles. Yes, evil love triangles. How I loather them! Because the protagonist America already had the boyfriend of any teenager's dream; hardworking, smart, caring, family oriented, sacrificing...oh yeah, and handsome. Yet America was going to enter into a sort of lottery where she would compete with other girls for the attention of a young prince, who turns out, would also be handsome, kind and charismatic. Yeah, I'm so not playing that game. I need more to the plot like magical wizards or flesh-eating zombies. Sorry, America. I just really don't give a rats behind that two level-headed men have fallen for you. Contact me when you're ready to join the real world. So what do you guys think? I know a ton of you out there have read and loved this one. What am I missing? Should I finish or forget this one?
