How Far She's Come Reviews
Absolutely fantastic read! One of the best books I've read this year. Interesting characters with super dynamics between them. Loved the TV studio as the base of the story and the contrasts between east and west coast views layered with a mid-western perspective.
I got an advanced reading copy from my library. The summary attracted me because the book's set at a fictional news network, and I'm a print journalist.
I enjoyed this book - it's a fast read with some suspense - but I struggled to say I "really liked it" because at times it seemed outlandish and unrealistic. That, however, is something I struggled with as well. It was written after the 2016 election and has timely mentions of the #metoo movement, among other recent events, and is about how women ...more
#FirstLine ~ Prologue They're watching me, I know that.
This book was good. I was so engrossed because it was one of those books that hits a cord because the topic is at the forefront of people's minds, but it is also a story that is timeless in the struggles presented. This book has heavy topics and is one that takes a ripped from the headlines story and adds a few twists and turns. It was well plotted and was one that book clubs will enjoy because there is a lot to talk about. A great book for ...more
At the spur of the moment, Cheyenne Florian accepts a newscaster position with the newest news network known as INN. The network that is independent, unbiased, and hypothetically supposed to keep other networks accountable and honest. Sounds great and Cheyenne thinks it's great too. A chance to do something meaningful despite her fear of online critics and potential stalkers. She learns that INN isn't exactly what she thought it would be and she starts to receive diary entries about a past newsc ...more
I really don't like writing bad reviews. No one wants to have their hard work criticised. But I can not find anything to praise in this book and after two hundred pages of cliche, name dropping and incredulity, I gave up. I could not force myself to slog through the rest of the book.
I won this book in a Goodreads' giveaway, but my opinion was not influenced by that win.
I've had Holly Brown in my TBR pile for a long time, mostly because she's a therapist who also writes psych suspense and I am a former therapist who loves psych suspense. Unfortunately, this book is abysmal. The main character is one of the worst people I've had the displeasure to read about (and for a yardstick measurement, I adore anti-hero(ine)s and morally gray characters) and I hated her almost from the first scene. Cheyenne is literally the worst (but she's also just so beautiful! Did you ...more
