very rarely – if ever, have read a book I hate. If a book isn’t really working –
like my most recent DNF, Before I Fall, I put it aside and move on. So

order to see how it ended, it wasn’t a favorite. But then, to be fair, I’m not
the biggest fan of Karen Kingsbury’s novels to start with. Amazon | Goodreads
one isn’t fair since I remember nothing about it. But it “feels” like it’s one
of the novels by Lori Wick (one of many I did read by her) that I simply didn’t
care for. Amazon | Goodreads
