Whatcha Readin' Wednesday

After accidentally watching the movie last week, I decided I really must read Something Borrowed, by Emily Giffin.

About halfway through, I'm pleasantly surprised. The movie deviated quite a bit, and that's okay in this case. Same basic premise, but that's about it. I do have to wonder if it would've made publication in today's market, though... this book is majorly introspection and flashback--of the first 100 pages, probably less than 25 were "current action". It's well written though, and Giffin does a nice job of making us sympathize with the heroine, Rachel--who is doing something we'd normally abhor--namely, her best friend's fiancee.

Anyway. I should be ready for a full review on it next week.

Am slacking so hard on the NaNo project.

Happy humpday.

Eeek! Can't stand novels that do that. 100 pages? Yuk.

Thanks for saving me time. Don't care how well they're done. They're just not my cuppa.
