Liz Loves Books

I love to read and to talk about books. I review many of the books I read. I do not accept any author/publisher submissions for reviews. I do not read or review ARCs. I do not enter any giveaways or contests. I obtain the books I review by purchasing them at the same price they are offered to the general public at the time of purchase. My reviews are intended for the use of my fellow readers. They are not advertising or promotion. They are not beta reads or constructive criticism or editing or advice to the author. My only obligation to the author is to pay the price charged for the book at the time of purchase. My reviews are sometimes critical and I will not stop posting critical reviews just to spare delicate authors' feelings. I am happy to make new friends, but friend requests from authors or promoters who have few or no books (and/or friends) in common with me and write or promote categories I do not read (especially new adult) will be ignored. I used to read more self-published books. After recent meltdowns by self-published authors, I now only read self-published authors I've previously read or who have been recommended to me by fellow readers I trust. I also used to read young adult/new adult books but rarely do so now.

Kind of Slow but Cute Story

Planning for Love - Christi Barth

It took me a week to read Planning for Love. That's a long time for a quick, fluffy romance.  There were some scenes that seemed to just go on and on and on.  Despite this, I enjoyed the story.  There's a reality tv show about weddings (actually two of them) and since I sometimes watch TCL's various Friday night wedding themed shows, I liked that aspect a lot.  I liked both the main characters and the secondary characters. I just wish the story had been a lot tighter.  It either needed to be a novella or to have a more gripping plot.
