I’ve just given up on Road to Paradise by Paullina Simons. This book was SUCH a disappointment: I’ve read several of her books before and loved them, and I just could not get into this at all – the characters were so irritating, and nothing seemed to happen. I really tried hard to like it, and I struggled to about halfway through, around 250 pages. However, I looked at the Amazon reviews yesterday and I was not alone in my opinion of this book. Somehow that made me feel it was OK to stop struggling with it. So I did.
I took myself off to the cinema today to see this movie, which I really enjoyed. The amazing action sequences made up for the slightly off kilter plot, and left me feeling quite exhausted. Movies are just so much better when you see them on the big screen – I do love the cinema.
Last night’s dinner was this Weight Watchers recipe – vegetarian samosas and crunchy slaw. If I’m honest, it looks better than it tasted, but there are only 2.5 Weight Watchers points in the whole plate of food in the pic, which is pretty good. I had another two of the samosas for lunch today, and enjoyed them more cold than hot.
