Abandoned Read: How to Love

Saturday, 21 February 2015

Started: Feb 10, 2015 | ABANDONED 

Reena Montero has loved Sawyer LeGrande for as long as she can remember: as natural as breathing, as endless as time. But he's never seemed to notice that Reena even exists...until one day, impossibly, he does. Reena and Sawyer fall in messy, complicated love. But then Sawyer disappears from their humid Florida town without a word, leaving a devastated, and pregnant, Reena behind.
Almost three years have passed, and there's new love in Reena's life: her daughter, Hannah. Reena's gotten used to life without Sawyer, and she's finally getting the hang of this strange, unexpected life. But just as swiftly and suddenly as he disappeared, Sawyer turns up again. Reena doesn't want anything to do with him, though she'd be lying if she said Sawyer's being back wasn't stirring something in her. After everything that's happened, can Reena really let herself love Sawyer LeGrande again?
My thoughts:

Does it really count as a book review if I didn't even finish the book?

I read the first 100 pages to this book, and I just can't finish it. A part of me is interested to see where it goes, but a bigger part of me doesn't care. I couldn't get invested in these characters. The main character was awkward and whiny, and not in some adorable redeemable way.

This book read like bad fanfiction! I'm sorry to say that, but there it is. First book that I've ever abandoned while reading, and I've read the 50 shades series. I make this book sound terrible and it's not that bad. Maybe in the future I'll give it another chance. We'll have to wait and see, but for now, this book isn't for me.

I won't add this to my book review list since I'm not sure if this qualifies.



  1. I read the one last year. I don't remember the finer points, but I remembered being entertained while I read it. I also couldn't get Kat Graham and Nate Buzz's faces out of my mind when picturing the two main characters. idk why haha

    It was okay. Could have been a lot better!

    1. The One. Is that the one from the Selection series? I want to read that series eventually. Kat Graham and Nate Buzz's faces are good faces to imagine, haha ;) If only they could've been in a series together where they could've become a canon ship! Oh wait..lol
