(112)Hearts on a String by Kris Radish

I really wanted to like Hearts On A String. The concept is brilliant. Five women meet in an airport bathroom when one of them dropped their iPhone in the toilet. While trying to help Nan retrieve her cell phone they hear the overhead speaker saying that all flights going in and out of Tampa have been canceled.

So what do they do? They all chip in and get a suite at a nearby hotel. They ended up stranded for several days. Seems like a real bonding experience, right? We get about 36 pages of bonding and 300 pages of bitching. If this book is any indication, I would rather spend five days on a bench in the airport than be in a suite with four other women.

There was a lot of bitching, a lot of cattiness, and a hell of a lot of whining in the majority of this book. And the few warm fuzzies that were generated with the "bonding" does not erase the pure bitchiness that was throughout the rest of the book.

I wanted to like this book, unfortunately I did not find the book engrossing, entertaining, or even good. Maybe next book?


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
