I’m probably better off if I don’t go wandering into libraries. The plethora of free books can be a little too inviting, and suddenly I’m walking home with an armful of books that I don’t have time to read. I hear some people talk about trying to make time to read like it’s a chore they feel bad about neglecting (although I’m guessing most Cannonballers don’t feel this way). As for myself, I am the opposite. I constantly use reading to procrastinate on what I should be doing (or in this case: writing up a review when I should be doing my taxes). I love reading: it’s a great way to learn, it’s great escapism, and I feel like I’m doing something useful–most of the time. Even the first time I read Pride and Prejudice was in college while I should have been reading my assigned reading, The Secret Agent.
And that brings me to Sweet Talk (2012) by Julie Garwood. I vaguely remember being somewhat disappointed in Garwood’s last book, so I didn’t have her on my “to read” list. However, when I walked into the library and saw her latest title sitting on the “New Fiction” shelf, I had to grab it. And then I read it in a day.
