Everything I Never Told you seemed like a lot of books I have read before, some of them even this year. I didn't have anything to listen to and this was available and I didn't hate it. I didn't even dislike it. It was just there. A solid 3 stars if you haven't read anything like it before, but a 2.5 if you have. It was just a little too laid out for the reader. Kinda like Mr. Obvious as to why the husband and wife acted as they did. I mean, if I could get it, I bet everyone else did, but the author spelled it all out too much, the connections. I don't think I am saying this right!
It was kind of like this:
Husband wants daughter to be popular. Says or does something to her to convey that.
Next scene in book is a flashback to when he was her age and was not popular.
Wife wants daughter to be a doctor. Says or does something to her to convey that.
Next scene in book is a flashback to when her dreams of being a doctor were alive and then crushed.
It was just a little too...yeah, I guess spelled out?
What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.
