I really thought I would like this one, but after 1.5 CDs I realized that I was bored.  Maybe I liked my last book more than I thought I did.  :)  This one just didn't compare.  There wasn't much of a cohesive story; therefore, I had no attachment to any character.  I admit that this one is a little more difficult to abandon, but I've got to be true to myself.


  1. Being bored is not a good thing!! I'm currently listening to Joy for Beginners and not sure how I feel about it yet...

    1. Staci ~ I'm really disappointed that I wasn't loving this one. I had high hopes.

  2. I have high hopes for this, so I'll let you know if you should go back and try reading it again. Maybe it's better in print.

    BTW, it's Beautiful Forevers, not Flowers. ;)

    1. Les ~ Thank you! All fixed. :) But, I like beautiful flowers, too!

      This book may be better in print, but if I couldn't get past somebody reading it to me, I doubt I will have the patience to read it myself. It just didn't work for me. I will, however, read your review, not just look at the rating. :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
