I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

About the book:
Jennifer Sharpe is a single mom of two struggling to balance her work and home life. One fateful day, a brilliant physicist decides to play fairy godmother and install a time-travelling app on Jennifer’s phone: Wishful Thinking. Jennifer is finally able to devote herself fully to every aspect of her life, but why does Jennifer feel more busy than ever?

My Thoughts:
How could you not like this book. I've wanted to be in two places at once a bunch of times!

Real life interfered with getting the review done early so I brought the book on vacation. I'm sad to say I'm not loving it.

Maybe I'm not the target audience? I can't get passed the "whiny" single mother part. Your ex doesn't pay child support but looks like he's had botox? The boss that promised you time off for recitals is gone and the new boss wants you to work more hours? You're having trouble making ends meet? There is a solution for all of it. Change jobs, move if you have to, go to court. Maybe I've been out of the job market too long and it isn't that simple anymore but come on. Kids first. If you work extra to pay for extra stuff for your kids then can't enjoy the outcome, cut back on the extras.

I'm sad because I like the idea so much that I thought I'd love the book. I'm going to try again when I get home from vacation. Maybe it will make a difference if I'm in my own chair with the distractions I'm use to.
