Onto Book #5

Well, I’m done with “Waterfall”! I was on vacation, and then had to wait four days before I could get to the library, so I know it’s been a little while since you’ve heard from me. I enjoyed the book –  although in the beginning, I found the heroine, Gabi, to be obnoxious and unintelligent. When she and her sister accidentally travel through time to Medieval Italy, they become separated, and Gabi is brought to a nearby castle as a guest. During the opening few chapters, where the stage was being set, it irked me that Gabi seemed more interested in the “hot Italian guys”, as she called them, then on recovering her sister. By the end of the story, she had grown and earned my respect, as well as the love of one said Italian hot guy. I do believe I will continue with the series outside of this challenge.

Now, still no show from “Me Before You”, so it’s on to the fifth challenge.

This is a book of short stories, and it’s highly recommended. As it’s new, I couldn’t find out much about it (although I did try to do that with the fox, only the shadows weren’t working and I didn’t light myself on fire.) So I’m excited for it! I’ll try to make it quick.
