So. I’ve never read a Danielle Steel book before. I know! How is that even possible! She has written so so many.
This book, Blue, was given to me in my stocking and I’ve just finished it. I thought I’d write up a little review of how I found it.
I got through it very quickly, it was definitely a story that I got into, and cared about the two main characters, Blue and Ginny. It wasn’t what I would class as chic lit, these two characters find each other and overcome challenges from their past.
Was there anything I didn’t like about it? Yes. I felt like the history of each of the characters was repeated again and again and again. It made me feel like the storyteller is assuming I am a bit dim and have forgotten this.
Would I read another of Danielle Steel’s novels? Yes. There is no question that overall I enjoyed this. It was quite an easy read, so I will probably pick up another of her books later in the year.
In terms of books, I am trying to up my reading this year and have recently bought:
- The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides
- The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion
- The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo
- Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling
So there will be little reviews of each of those coming as and when I work my way through them.
If you have any recommendations for me, please let me know. I’ll always game to try a new author, or genre.
