I finally finished the book I mentioned on Sunday. Finally.
I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that I am having a hard time reading this year. I started the #50bookpledge in January and sad to admit that I’m only 14 books in with 2.5 months to go. Well I guess now 15.
Due to my lack of interest in reading this year, you cannot understand how excited I was when I heard that the squeal to The Rosie Project, The Rosie Effect was finally available at the book store. I went out and bought it immediately!
I loved The Rosie Project. (the first book) I recommend it to everyone. It’s a cute love story about Don Tillman, a socially awkward genetics professor who decides to find love by coming up with a questionnaire. A very non-emotional approach that results in a very endearing love story. The second book picks up 10 months after the wedding and surprise, surprise, they are expecting a baby!
I do not believe in spoiling books so if you are also very excited to read The Rosie Effect, skip the next paragraph.
Given my excitement about this book, I was totally expecting to fall in love with it from the first page but I have to admit it took me a really long time to get into this book. I mean, like half way in and a few more chapters before I actually found myself engaged and by that point, I just wanted to know what they named the baby! (which was a cute name btw) It might be that I’m having a rough time with reading in general or it could be that the book is all baby talk which I can’t relate to but regardless I just wasn’t feeling it. I mean there were some cute parts that made me chuckle but it just didn’t leave the same impression as the first one did. I am still a fan of the original so if you haven’t read it, just start there. For those that have read it, I don’t know what to tell you. It’s cute, they are prego and yes, Don is still Don. Rosie however… I just leave it like that.
Now that I finished The Rosie Effect, I’m on the search for book #16. For some reason I still have not lost any interest in walking around aimlessly around Chapters. It’s still my happy place!
