Short book (novella) = short review.
I have mixed feelings about this.
One the one hand, I’m never one to dislike extra bits & pieces of a favorite series. And I loved the Manwhore books.
(Fun fact: it turns out I only read like 75% of Manwhore +1 before having to put it down for an ARC coming out soon. I forgot about this until I was halfway through this book and realized I spoiled myself [ick, that sounds gross]. As soon as I realized, I went back and finished book #2, but the timeline still makes me twitchy. #wompwomp.)
But it also was an example of something I’ve blogged about before: when it seems like a novel’s worth of story is crammed into a novella’s length.
In so many parts, it felt like a summary of a story rather than a story itself. So rushed – almost skimming. No show, all tell. I didn’t mind it in the moment as much as I normally would, since it was a summary of a story I liked. But it is something in lots of novellas that irks me.
