Overall: 3/5 Stars Characters: 2/5 Setting: 3/5 Writing: 4/5 Plot and Themes: 4/5 Awesomeness Factor: 2/5 Review in a Nutshell: Dumplin’ is a good book with an important message, but it lacked in the areas that first grabbed my attention.
“Perfection is nothing more than a phantom shadow we’re all chasing”
I read 10 books this month, and it was definitely a struggle to keep my reading speed while doing NaNoWriMo. I’m just glad I managed to reach 10 with the help of a few novellas. Plus, now I’ve written my own book. That should count for something!
It’s really hard to rate this as a whole, considering it’s an anthology. Scroll down to see my thoughts on each individual story.
Overall: 3.5/5 Stars Characters: 4/5 Setting: 3/5
Writing: 3/5 Plot and Themes: 4/5 Awesomeness Factor: 3/5 Review In A Nutshell: Meet Cute is an adorable anthology filled with a variety of diverse stories by great authors. While some stories don’t shine as bright, others are absolutely perfect and make this 100% worth the read.
