I read and review whatever strikes my fancy and many things strike my fancy. I'm particularly fond of Young Adult, New Adult, dystopian tales, and mystery thrillers. Easily distracted by the newest book in the shelf.

Destination, Wedding!

Destination, Wedding! - Xavier  Mayne I had a love-hate relationship with this book. I love the characters and the engaging and often hilarious story line, but, man, was it long. There were a lot of meanderings into "what-the-hell" territory, but I finally decided to look at it as several stories rolled into one. Like an entire season of a television series binge-watched in one sitting. And I ended up enjoying the book quite a lot.

The author has a wonderful writing style and I love that he has a large vocabulary and isn't afraid to use it. All in all, it is entertaining and funny and has a great cast of characters that take the reader on a zany, whacked-out adventure.
