february bookclub

February 28, 2012

This month our bookclub book was The Winters in Bloom by Lisa Tucker.

Synopsis: Kyra and David Winter are both hiding something. We don’t know what, and neither of them know their spouse’s secret either. However, it’s something so big, so heart-wrenching, that before they got married, they decided not to have children. However, they later decided to have a child. Their six-year-old son Michael disappears from the backyard one afternoon. They’ve tried to protect him from everything, because they know that they don’t deserve a child and so they aren’t at all surprised that they’ve lost him.

My review: I hated this book. Hated it! I didn’t like the actual story line much and I hated how the author kept switching between who was narrating the story. It happened so often that at times I would lose track. The writing was sloppy and disjointed.  Too much of it was this-happened-then-this-happened-then-this-happened…without much action to go along with it. It was just a mess. I makes me sad because this was an author I have never read before but I am doubtful that I will read anything by her again.

Do you remember the last truly bad book you read?

    I start so many books that I don’t finish because they drive make me mad. I refuse to waste my time on a book that doesn’t make me happy since there are so many good books on my list, so i just move on! The last book I did this with was House Rules by Jodi Picoult (whose books I usually adore). It just infuriated me. haha

    Yup, I read The Tiger’s Wife and kept hoping and hoping that something exciting would happen and I just never got into it. I hate that.

    (In other news, I finished Bel Canto and LOVED it!!)

      I am so glad you liked Bel Canto! It is one of those books that I feel people with either like or hate. I thought the storyline was just so original.
