The last couple of weeks have been a tad… stressful. Not unexpected, but still very very difficult. When I finished my last book I was staring at a couple of possibilities. All fairly highbrow. I’m sure they would all have expanded my mind. However, when push came to shove, I realized that I needed reading to be relaxing right now. I needed some place to escape.
So, I scrolled through my Kindle to see what easy reading I’ve got in there. There’s one more Jill Mansell book that I haven’t read. Exactly what I need.
The Mansell books I have read have been of varying quality, but this one was rather good. The characters were interesting, it had more than a basic, formulaic plot and I stayed interested through the whole book. The ending was a little weak, but the rest of the book was good enough to make up for it.
The book did exactly what I needed it to do. It gave some brief escapes and an interesting story to get caught up in.
Sometimes that’s exactly what you need from a book.
