Who are You? - Megan Henley

Ahhh, another book in my my READING QUEST... (See my other conquests HERE...)

Oh gosh. 

I feel like before you continue reading, you should just note this is entirely my opinion, and you should give it a shot yourself before forming any impressions.

That being said...

I just don't know where to start with this one. 

I read it all in one go on the train to London, and it was utterly awful. Like, so bad I can't believe it's a book. It is so completely farcical. It is supposed to be based on a real life story, but I can't believe anyone is that stupid - it MUST have been warped into something un-recognisable, otherwise I really fear for humanity.

Basically, Megan meets a guy called Vic online, he turns out to be a bit weird, and everything goes horribly wrong. I don't want to go into it more as it's all so unbelievable & I don't want to ruin it for you if you do want to read it.

Ultimately, given the chance again, I'd give this one a miss.

The Rosie Effect - Graeme Simsion

The Rosie Effect, by Graeme Simsion, is the sequel to The Rosie Project, which is easily in my top 10 books of all time. When I read it in January, I fell in love with it. I was a bit worried that the Rosie Effect wouldn't live up to it, but trust me, it does!

(I read both of these as part of my reading quest - other books I've tackled can be found here...)

The Rosie Effect picks up 10 months after the Rosie Project left off. Rosie and Don are approaching their first anniversary, and are living in New York, whilst still working at the cocktail bar and carrying out their respective research. 

Then, Rosie gets pregnant, and everything changes.

Don being Don doesn't really adapt to this in the conventional way, and it causes him all sorts of problems. This reaction, and the fact that Gene has separated from Claudia and moved in, puts all sorts of strains on Don and Rosie's relationship - the book explores and very tense period for them!

I don't want to ruin the book, as I really loved it and was a bit unsure during it how it would end! All I can say is that it is as well written, heartwarming and funny as it's predecessor, and I really hope we get more books exploring Don's world!
