And Then Things Fall Apart by Arlaina Tibensky

And Then Things Fall Apart by Arlaina Tibensky
Keek’s life was totally perfect.

Keek and her boyfriend just had their Worst Fight Ever, her best friend heinously betrayed her, her parents are divorcing, and her mom’s across the country caring for her newborn cousin, who may or may not make it home from the hospital. To top it all off, Keek’s got the plague. (Well, the chicken pox.) Now she’s holed up at her grandmother’s technologically-barren house until further notice. Not quite the summer vacation Keek had in mind.

With only an old typewriter and Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar for solace and guidance, Keek’s alone with her swirling thoughts. But one thing’s clear through her feverish haze—she’s got to figure out why things went wrong so she can put them right.

Basically this book is a daily account, like a diary, of how’s she feeling, random thoughts and filling you in on what’s happening and how things began to fall apart.
Unfortunately, this will be my first book review on my new blog where I won’t boast or gush.  I  read about 60 pages and then just abandoned it. I am not one who like's to abandon a book. Who does?

Anyone who loves books and adores reading knows how disappointing it is when you don’t enjoy a book. Especially one that you think is going to be awesome and you pre-order.
But sadly this book just wasn’t for me. Reading time became more like a chore, something I wanted to put off. However, just because I didn’t enjoy this book doesn’t mean you won’t! It is only my opinion. Anyone who can write and publish a book that they’ve written is awesome and takes a lot of dedication and patience. That task alone deserves to be acknowledged.

Rating 1/5

  2. I know! I love the cover and the blurb sounded good. But it just wasn't for me. :(

    Thanks, it was my first not-so-good review about a book.
    So i'm glad you thought i did a good job writing about it :)
