Love and Skate

Love and Skate - Lila Felix Before you read my thoughts, you might want to know that everyone else seems to have loved this book, which means that you might want to take my review as one negative among many positives. Chances are, you could fall in love with Love and Skate, and you should probably read other reviews in order to get both sides of the picture. My mood was not there, so I'm not sure how much of my dislike stemmed from real life crap, and how much came from an actual dissatisfaction with what was going on in the story. That said, I really wanted to like this book. Roller Derby - really? I was so on board! The story started off pretty darn cute with a sort of "he said, she said" thing happening. It wasn't hard to feel a little happy sappy over watching a new couple find an interest in one another.But then...the story went round in circles. Not a whole lot happened. Feelings came out of nowhere, some stuff happened in the middle, there was a bit of drama closer to the end and then we were back to a whole lot of nothing. The chemistry turned out to be pretty one-note after I found myself getting over the sweet start. And the writing. I felt like I was reading one of my own reviews, it was that painfully embarrassing to witness (yes, I know that I use okay and so way too much, but I am not trying to sell half-assed reviews for profit). Exhibit A : The oh, ok.Exhibit B : How many sentences can we start with I?I would give you exhibit C, which would be something along the lines of how many non-useful text messages can we fit into one book? However, that would have required me to have been far less lazy and actually screen-cap more stuff, which I wasn't in the mood to do. Again, I'll just refer you back to paragraph one of this review.
