Thanks, Book Riot

Lucky UsLucky Us by Amy Bloom
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I finished this book late last year. I probably should have sat down and wrote something about it immediately because I was feeling very meh about it. This was Book Riot’s third selection in the Riot Read Book Club and I’d have to say that I wouldn’t have picked it up if they hadn’t sent it to me. I don’t think I would have missed anything. It’s basically about Iris and Eva, two sisters that don’t learn that they share a dad until his wife dies and Eva’s mother leaves her with him. Eventually, they run away to 1940’s Hollywood. I’m not going to go into detail about what happens after that because I don’t really remember much of it. I felt zero connection to any of the characters and just kind of muddled through the book. If it hadn’t been so short, I probably wouldn’t have finished it at all. Yeah, probably should have written some stuff down when I finished it.
