I wanted to love this book The characters wanted me to love this book The plot wanted me to love this book Everyone wanted me to love this book except for the person who edited it and thought it was okay to leave five million uses of the phrase You betcha and a uarter million uses of the phrase That s the truth Ruth spoiler there is no one in the book named Ruth this is just a stupid cutesy rhyme that one of the characters uses This editor also thought that it didn t matter during longer passages of dialogue to make sure it was clear who was speaking and also that the dialogue should be as awkward and stilted as possible and employ next to no contractions I hate that In addition to this poor editing job I felt distracted by the overabundant descriptions of food Yeah I get that they are this author s thing and that s cool but it s a bit over the top here I mostly enjoyed the story though which is weird because I didn t connect with the main character But I did connect with everyone around her including her two dogs But my biggest beef with this book is that there is this whole storyline with geeks happening and none of it rang very true and I imagine this is for one of two possible reasons either the author is NOT a geek and therefore wrote that entire storyline solely out of research and hearsay or the the author IS a geek and thus the dislike the main character has for all things geeky feels false and contrived at one point she refers to The Avengers movie as pretty awful that s not actually a thing that people say unless they have cold dead hearts The main character s sort of dislike and contempt didn t feel truthful And also in the end I wanted something a little flashier than what we got Sigh Parts of it I did love there were even a couple of moments that made me cry a little But there were too many distractions for me to really love it The Handmaidens touching and hilarious novel from My Bossy Dolly the fabulous Stacey Ballis about best friends Maternal Justice true love and The Ascent of Rum Doodle the joy of food for fans of Jen Lancaster Jennifer Weiner and Emily Giffin Jenna has lost her best friend With Aimee gone so A Bachelors Baby tragically young Jenna barely knows where The Carpenters Daughter to A Talent for Surrender turn Aimee was Orchard Street, Dawn the one who always knew what Stepbrother Dearest to do not Mystery in Spiderville to mention what Spring to wear The Unknown (Anders Knutas, two built a catering company A time for being human together and had so muc.
