Did Not Finish - Off the Record by Camryn Garrett

Wednesday, July 14, 2021

I really loved Full Disclosure by Camryn when I read it last August, so I was really excite for her new book. I pre ordered it and picked it up not long after it arrived. I read about sixty pages, but I wasn't very gripped by the story. Then I had to read something for one of my blog tours, so I put this down. I read the other book, and then picked this up again. I read about another thirty pages and realised I just really wasn't enjoying it. So, it's going on the Did Not Finish shelf. 

It's about a girl called Josie, who is the youngest of three, who gets the chance to go on a press tour for a new film, so that she can write a piece about one of the stars, Marius something. She's already a writer who's been published, and this is a major senior project for her. While she's there, one of the female actors in the film warns her off a famous director. I didn't get further than that, but I'm guessing there's a Me Too element to it. 

I just couldn't get into the characters properly. I didn't care enough about Josie to see what she was going to go through. She suffers from anxiety, which is something I suffer from terribly myself, but I didn't like the way it was portrayed. I wanted to love this, but I just didn't. I'm sorry!
