So, after suffering through several chapters of The Seven Rays and still not finishing, I've decided to officially take a break from it. They'll be a full review when I finally finish... but... well, I wouldn't hold my breath.
I've finally started to delve into the charming Very Valentine book, which HarperCollins was nice enough to send me (and my contest winners!) for free. Valentine is exactly the type of a book I'm in the mood for; a woman slowly leaving her prime, living in New York City, who has yet to find true romance. Sometimes, I am that girl! I've gotten through the first chapter so far, where the titular character aptly named 'Valentine' is stuck attending her sister's lavish Italian wedding. Her family drama is on full display, including a stuff passive agressive brother, a lovingly overbearing mother, and her two sisters who are more like best friends than family. I have a feeling I'm really going to enjoy the book, and may immediately move onto the sequal (just released in hardcover) right when I'm done. Check back for updates!
