No, I haven't forgotten ye.

In the past month I've been posting book reviews as fast I can read them, so you might have expected me to have posted a new review by now.  And I'm working on it, it's just that I'm still trudging through Outlander and it's an 800 page book.  Aside from that, it's not holding my attention very well.  It's like Eat, Pray, Love to me: I don't care if I ever finish, but I have this neurosis that says I have to finish.  It's why I'm not reading two books at one time like I normally do, because I have to force myself to read this one.  I want to like the book, I really do, but I'm halfway through it and I'm not in love with it.  Here's some thoughts about the novel so far: 

  • I don't mind a steamy sex scene.  In fact, I like them as much as the next romance reading gal, but really?  Get off each other and do something productive!
  • I hate to have to admit I'm thinking this, but.... what's the plot?  I get what's happened and I get they're traveling around, but what's really going on?  Are they in search of something?  Is there a mystery going on?  I have no idea.
  • Will she ever get back to Frank?  Please, oh please?
So, if all goes according to plan, I'll be done with this novel in a couple days.  Though, the weekend is coming up and my husband has off Friday afternoon and Saturday, which is precious time and then the Superbowl is Sunday.  On top of that I've been sick, so who knows how much reading I can squeeze in!
