This is a Good Book Thursday, November 29, 2018

I downloaded a romance by a writer I’d never heard of (not surprising, I am completely out of the loop on romance at this point), and while the leads were charming and the setting excellent, everything kept happening as expected.  It was fun to read–who doesn’t want to read about people falling in love with a happy ending–I felt no interest in buying more of the books in the series or even rereading that one again, even though I’d enjoyed it.  It was the first time I’d read something and realized I didn’t want to read it again, ever, even though it had been fun to read.  I think it might be the predictability of it–knowing there’s a happy ending is a romance staple does not mean knowing everything that’s going to happen is okay, too–or possibly that so much of the conflict was of the if-they’d-just-talked variety.  It is also possible that I’m just a jaded bitch.  

So what did you read this week?
