I know I need to take a break from fiction when two books in a row involve characters who are madly and deeply in love with multiple people. Sometimes I really need a dose of real life mixed in with the not real life, so if you have any suggestions please let me know!
This soap box is not to say I did not enjoy reading More Than Words by Jill Santopolo. It again, has elements that remind me of Gossip Girl – main character Nina grows up in the public eye in NYC as the only daughter of a successful businessman – mixed with a Nicholas Sparks novel. Poor Nina has been under her father’s shadow and when he passes away, she finally feels that she can be herself. She can dress how she wants to dress, brunch where she wants to brunch, work where she wants to work, and even date who wants to date. This especially comes to light as she learns about some big secrets her dad had kept hidden for years.
Even thought the story line was a little ridiculous (and it’s really just me getting a little tired of ending up reading similar story lines) but it was still entertaining and didn’t drag on so I still enjoyed it.
