    Rating: 2.5*So, I'm back with the review of Lang Leav's new book, as promised yesterday. I could have written this yesterday, in fact, just chose not to. The page count says 200 , but 1) every alternate page is blank or has an image, 2) every page has only one or two lines. I read it i...

    lang leav may become the first author to whom i don't give three chances to impress me. even though this book is free on netgalley, my past experiences with her have been so horrifying that i can't imagine this one will be so much improved that it will catapult her into "tolerable" ter...
