I used to be the blogger called YAL Book Briefs, but I grew bored of the handle and changed my name to Howdy YAL. I also respond to MJ. I like to read, write, eat truffles, and watch bad Lifetime movies.
Really, when I let go of what I expected this to be, I like it quite a bit. It's nothing really new though. I think that's my biggest issue with it. And it's really not the books fault. For the story it's telling, it tells it quite well (I'm expecting it will probably be either 3.5 or 4 stars).
