At The Water’s Edge by Sara Gruen
I loved Water For Elephants, her last book. This one….not so much. Just can’t care about the characters.
The Expats by Chris Pavone
This mystery was recommended by a bookstore staff member at just the time I was looking for a mystery. But, it only seemed a tangled and not very interesting tale.
Ruby by Cynthia Bond
Oprah picked this book and I did, too. After a few chapters, I returned it to my home bookshelf, where I think it is destined to sit, unread.
You may well like one of these books I wish I’d left on the shelf. I recommend you take a close look or feel free to abandon the book if you aren’t enjoying it. My list of five is only four. What book would you add to round out the list? What book are you wishing you had left on the shelf or abandoned, or maybe it just wasn’t as gripping as you’d hoped? Or maybe you want to speak up for one of the above. Let’s have a conversation!
