The Vanquished

I started reading this book last month, and it was the sort of non-fiction book that made me want to read a pulpy fiction book at the same time.  I took a trip to Barnes & Noble to get book number 2 in Rick Riordan’s Magnus Chase series and walked out $100 lighter.  Always a hazard in my world.  This book was so very dry that I actually started reading three other books since I started it.

The List

Like the best chick lit, Adrienne meets a handsome, mysterious man who keeps her guessing. She wants the love story, but she also wants to make a name for herself.  In pursuit of both goals, hijinks, intrigue, and adventure ensues.

The Run

This book felt like an episode of a serial TV show like NCIS, only not quite as good.  Maybe like Hawaii 5-0.  Enjoyable enough characters, enough action to keep it interesting, and will be continued next week at the same day and time.
