I really, really, really, wanted to love “The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem” by Sarit Yishai-Levi but I just couldn’t. I found myself bored. I think the story is a great idea but I just couldn’t fall in love with the characters. I had a hard time getting to know Gabriela and her family. The characters were just so boring to me that I couldn’t find a way to make the story fun and memorable for me. I think the characters could have been written so much better to where the story didn’t drag on. About love2dazzle Ali Kiki is a […]

Book Review: A Paris Affair by Tatiana de Rosnay

Book Review: A Paris Affair by Tatiana de Rosnay

I was really looking forward to “A Paris Affair” by Tatiana de Rosnay. I have to say that I was really disappointed. I just couldn’t get into this story and I feel like the characters were lacking. This book is a collection of short stories and I feel like the time that was needed to be put into this book was just not there. These short stories focus a lot of marriage disputes and problems. I really hope that I don’t have to deal with some of the issues that the characters had to deal with because I don’t think […]
