I told the author of this book that I was going to lament about how I hate reading books that is part of a series… when all the books aren’t even out yet. Because if they are good I just want to devour all of the books at once. But alas I went and bought The Charlie Diaz Syndrome because I saw the author talking about it with my friend Kenda, and I like supporting up and coming authors. I was going to wait for the kindle version but I didn’t want to wait weeks! So I purchased my book.
It came a few days ago, but I didn’t open it right away. Though this morning I woke up and said, I want to read. So I picked up The Charlie Diaz Syndrome and didn’t put it down until 3 hours later when I was finished with the book. The book is 200 pages on the nose. Not the shortest book in the world, but I read fast, especially when I get into a book. So I bet you can guess I really got into this book.
It’s not my usual cup of tea in a book. Though I do flit around in what I do like. But I usually tend to stick to either Romance or Fantasy. Or a mixture of the both. The Charlie Diaz Syndrome I suppose can fit a little bit into the Romance category… but a really messed up one. I don’t want to spill what goes in in the book, but there are so many twists and turns in it. And I don’t even know if there is a happy ending! I tell you Michelle Garcia! Get to writing because I need to know!
The next book in the series is actually the prequel to The Charlie Diaz Syndrome called English 101. Where it seems we get to learn more about the mystery of one of the characters that pops up at the end of CD Syndrome book. Plus it’s about Bianca growing up.
I’ve prattled on about the book but I didn’t even really really tell you what it’s about did I? Well read the synopsis!
Bianca is barely in her mid-20′s and she’s starting over – again. She’s new to D.C. when she has a chance meeting with Charlie Diaz and the sparks fly. If not for their palpable chemistry, she would have ignored him just like any other unattainable man she’s ever met. She knows her limits. He’s well-dressed and handsome. He’s educated and successful. What would someone like him want with her? It’s through the course of the pain they inflict on each other that she realizes, she really is in love. And it’s through the power of miscommunication that she’s able to admit it to herself…and him.
So now I get to wait until the end of 2013. So I can read the next book. And in the mean time I shake my fist at myself for reading a book that is in a series, when the series just started out. I so hate waiting.
If you have read a good book recently let me know? I am the book devourer and I need more!
