I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

Currently reading

Good idea, but it dragged a bit...

Crane - Stacey Rourke

The writing was solid and the idea was really good.

 

But the execution lagged.

There was some hope with good dialogues and sarcastic banter - but it was only in brief glimpses.

 

The mystery/crime/supposed suspense part was ridiculous - in the end there was no real explanation to anything. At least not in a meaningful way.

 

The "love" story was forced and kind of insta-lovey, which was totally unnecessary, because the said banter and slow burn, getting to know each other would have been so much better. So, it was just wasted.

 

They met, found out they are fated through time (kind of re-born Ichabod and Katrina), insta-couple...

(show spoiler)

 

All in all it was disappointing.
