99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne – ARC

99 Percent Mine

3 stars


I really loved The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. It took me a little long to read this one. I was approved for an e-ARC from Edelweiss and was so excited! Shortly after, I was admitted to the hospital and had to put a lot of things on hold.

I had read some really mixed reviews about this book and went in with an open mind. I thought it would really help me, not have really disappointing expectations.

I did enjoy the fact that this is about long life friends, as the main love interests. I always love those kinds of stories. I did like Darcy at first. Especially, when she was in the bar. I thought I was going to love this girl. Unfortunately. that didn’t last too long. She just started to drive me crazy. I don’t know if it’s because of personal experience but the fact that she was completely ignoring her heart condition, drove me INSANE! My husband has a heart condition and had to have open heart surgery. It’s a serious thing. She goes two years without going to the doctor, has expired medication, drinks excessively, and eats so much sugar. Does she want to die?

There is a lack of depth when it comes to the characters and the overall plot. I wasn’t even sure there was a plot? I feel like the whole book took place in 2 days then jumped to months later. The ending was insanely rushed. I never really got to know Tom. All anyone keeps saying is that he’s the perfect, most amazing guy. Why? I need details! I would have also loved to know more about this wedding that ruined her career. She showed up drunk? Was that it? I felt like her reaction was really immature, in regards to one negative review.

I did think this was a really quick read and I did like it. I just didn’t feel like it wasn’t anything special. I am still open to reading more from this author!

Thank you, to Edelweiss and Harper Collins – William Morrow Paperbacks, for providing me with an e-ARC to this book!

    • The Hating Game by her is great! This one.. not so much. Lol. Thank you! I’m doing better. I don’t know if you know, I’m pregnant. At 20 weeks, I was dilated and had to have two surgeries in 6 days, to try to save my baby. It seemed to work bc I’m 27.5 weeks now! Hoping to make it another 4+ weeks! 🙏🏻 I’ve been on bedrest for 7 weeks and that’s been tough! So, I’ve been a bit absent from blogging and reading. I hope you are doing well!
