Recently Finished

Body Movers by Stephanie Bond

There's a reason I have this book, and while it's a good reason, I'm glad I didn't buy it. Though thusfar it isn't bad, it's far from awesome. There are a lot of interesting things going on, but in some cases, it feels like too many. The main character has a lot of gusto and I love her name (Carlotta), but she makes a record number of stupid decisions. By page 55 I realized that if things didn't improve within the next 20 pages, I was going to be done and move on to something else. Bond managed to keep the story going and keep Carlotta from doing enough stupid things (barely) to keep me in it to the point that I felt that it was my duty to finish the book. I do intend to pick up 2 Bodies for the Price of 1, but it's because I want to see if Carlotta ever hooks up with anyone and what the deal was with her parents. Yet why do I get the feeling I'll be gypped out of getting the full story...?

P.S. Where's the romance? This is, after all, in the romance section...
