2014 Reading: #6 Dorothy Koomson’s The Cupid Effect


Book number 6 for me this year was Dorothy Koomson’s The Cupid Effect. This novel has been sat on my shelf for a long time so I decided to add it to my 2014 Mount TBR Challenge. Completing this book means I have now read 2 out of the 12 books I set myself to read, yay!

So far, with this TBR challenge, I have to say I haven’t really enjoyed the books I have selected! I was clearly putting them off for a reason! I found The Cupid Effect to be a more enjoyable and easier to read novel than One Day but I still didn’t find it that enjoyable. It took me nearly 2 weeks to read this book – a chick lit book with only 350 pages, that isn’t great. I like Dorothy Koomson novels and have rated them highly in the past. I can’t say the same for this book. My review will be posted later so I won’t say much more. I will say however, I wasn’t that bothered by this novel, I found the protagonist Ceri to be very self-indulged and the storyline to be a bit dull and predictable.

Addition: Paperback
Genre: Chick-lit
Published: 2003
Rating: 3 out of 5

One thought on “2014 Reading: #6 Dorothy Koomson’s The Cupid Effect”

  1. I don’t use Pinterest or Tumbrl for the same reason! I know they can be great, but they are time sinks, and I feel a liltte bad about my life when I spend as much time looking at stuff to read/do as I do reading or doing those things. I try to get everything done, but no matter what I shut the computer off by 10:00 so that I have time to read/relax/catch up on TV before bed (not being a mom, or having an early morning job, I’m often up till 1:00-2:00 am). This guarantees I have some strictly me/me with the bf time, though it does often put me behind on the blogoshere. Good luck on trying to balance everything! Glad you’re making a dent in the TBR pile. =)
