I am always searching for a really good book to read.

So when my friend told me about the website, Goodreads, I got really excited.

This website allows you to get/give recommendations, read reviews, find out what new books are out, and see what your friends are currently reading.

It's a great site!

THIS book........

......was NOT a "good read".

It took me FOREVER to finish it, because I just couldn't connect to the story or the characters.

There are over 5 main characters. The reader finds out the back story on each character...which is a little much.

Not one character is super likeable, in my opinion.

Most of the characters have extreme backgrounds. Extreme as in, "does that really ever happen to anyone"?

I have no idea where the cover of this book came from. Maybe I was dozing during the section where strawberries played a major role in the plot of the book???

Also, and I hate to admit this, I have never read a Jane Austen novel.

Shame on me?

I've seen the movies!!! :/

Maybe I would have enjoyed it better if I had actually read an Austen novel. But, I'm thinking probably not!

If you love to read, join this website!!
