Book 36 of 52: The Wonder Spot by Melissa Bank

I'm not sure how much I can write about Melissa Bank's The Wonder Spot.

It wasn't a book I had set out to read, even though I enjoyed her previous book, The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing. I got through that one in a one day reading binge while visiting my grandparents at their Florida retirement community. That book, too, was one I'd heard about. I always stopped at the library at my grandparents community when I visited, and The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing was there, so I took it, read it in one day while lounging on their sun porch, and retuned the book before I returned to New Jersey.

I didn't get The Wonder Spot for free, but I was close -- I found it for $4.99 at CVS. And it was an entertaining read with some really zingy lines, but I'm getting tired of the "here's a woman's string of painful, unsuccessful relationships." While some of these books can be enteratining, they sometimes hit a little too close to home, especially on days when you're having your first bridesmaids dress fitted. And it's pink. And you don't have a date to the wedding.

So I'm going back to non-fiction for book 37 of 52. As always, stay tuned!
