Taken by Tuesday

Taken by Tuesday - Catherine Bybee To me, Taken by Tuesday was really just so-so; I didn't love or hate it. I enjoyed reading it when it was in front of me, but it wasn't a book I thought about when I was away and I doubt it'll be a book I really remember after a while. That being said, I'm not going to go too in-depth with my review, and I'll just name my favorite and least favorite things about the book.

My least favorite thing was the emotion of the book. Whereas I was expecting a romantic wedding novel, most of what I read was about a girl trying to make it in a big city. Although I don't particularly mind that and it was enjoyable enough, the parts that really got to me were the parts of Taken by Tuesday that were supposed to be tense. I can't say I really felt any fear or concern for the characters, and the scenes themselves- particularly the one important scene at the end- just didn't seem like too much of a big deal, even though big-deal-things were happening. I just didn't feel the emotions I think I was supposed to.

My favorite part of Taken by Tuesday, however, was the character development during the lighter scenes. I liked the characters of Judy and Rick and I loved how they interacted when they were flirting with each other. The dialogue was interesting and fun, and kind of more what I was looking for when I picked up this book.
