Wish You Were Here by Renee Carlino

[ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review]

32620360

Charlotte has spent her twenties adrift, floating from interest to interest, job to job, and guy to guy, searching for a spark but never quite finding it. All she knows is that she won’t discover it working as a waitress at a pies-and-fries joint in Los Angeles or living with her fun but aimless best friend in a tiny apartment in the Arts District.

Then Charlotte collides with Adam, a gorgeous and soulful painter who seems just as lost as she feels. Their instant connection turns into a midnight drink… and a whirlwind night of champagne, Chinese food, and the kind of conversation that only happens in romantic comedies. But the next morning, Adam gives Charlotte the cold shoulder, leaving her confused and hurt—and wondering if the few odd moments between them the night before were red flags in disguise.

Months later, Charlotte hasn’t been able to shake Adam, so she decides to find out what happened the morning after their magical night together. This fateful decision rewrites their wild love story, but what Charlotte doesn’t know yet is that the ending has already been written.

Review

I wanted to like this book. Really, I did. Even when I started to have my doubts, I kept waiting for the characters and the story to be redeemed, but alas, that never happened.

TeaChat: Hurricanes & Surprise Kisses

Let’s pretend that you and I are going out and grabbing a cup of tea (or coffee… or wine) and chatting about what we’ve been up to lately.

I figured I’d add this to the blog every week or so… an update about what’s going on in my little world.

I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to as well, whether it’s in the comments or on your own blog post.

So, grab a cup, and let’s chat!

Book Haul 08.07.17 [Library Bookstore, eBooks, & Audiobooks]

book-haul

Ok, I am seriously trying not to load my Kindle up with so many free ebooks, and if you’ve seen my past hauls, you’ll notice this week’s haul is significantly less than others. At least, as far as ebooks go.

I immediately made up for that by perusing my local library’s bookstore and picking up a ton of books. In my defense, I also donated a big reusable bag full of books that I knew I wasn’t ever going to get around to reading. My hard copy TBR shelf is overflowing once again, though.

If a room without books is a room without a soul, then my house has so many souls it’s basically a cemetery.

That came out way more morbid than I intended.

Anyway, onward to last week’s haul!
