I picked up The Break-Up Book Club by Wendy Wax from the library on a whim recently. It’s a book I’d heard of a little bit around when it was published earlier in the year, and I thought it might be a light happy read to round out the grimness of December. But just within the first few pages, I found three specific things that annoyed the heck out of me. Just one might have been forgivable, but three I couldn’t ignore.
That combined with 6 different characters, 5 of which I didn’t care about as people or stories, and I’m preeeetty much done with this one. I think I’ll read out the chapters for the one character I was interested in, and otherwise gently part ways with this one.
