Hello fellow readers! I’m back with yet another review! Hope your day has been wonderful ❤
Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Can you love someone too much?
Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder.
In Walking Disaster, the life of Travis is full of fast women, underground gambling, and violence. But just when he thinks he is invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees.
Every story has two sides. In Beautiful Disaster, Abby had her say. Now it’s time to see the story through Travis’s eyes.
My First Thoughts:
So just like the synopsis says this is Beautiful Disaster from Travis’s perspective. I was kind of apprehensive about reading this book because I feared that I would be bored because I had read the book before so the scenes would be the same. I kind of hoped that this would be a continuation of Beautiful Disaster instead of just from Travis’s perspective.
My Post-Reading Thoughts:
So, as I suspected, I was kind of bored while reading this. I found myself skimming scenes in which I already knew what happened. Not only that some of the most exciting parts that I wouldn’t have minded rereading she skimmed over! It was like a pointless read, I already knew everything that was going to happen.
The only thing I truly enjoyed was the epilogue which, surprise surprise, wasn’t in the first book. So essentially I like the only new thing. Now it wasn’t terrible don’t get me wrong, it just wasn’t my cup of tea. I like forward momentum with my books and you don’t get that here.
It was, at times, interesting to see things through Travis’s perspective because his thought process was easier to follow. Abby is kind of a hot mess so you never really knew where she stood but Travis is very clear with his feelings.
I wouldn’t run out and buy this book but if you’re bored and there’s nothing else to do then go ahead and read this book.
I give this a 3 out of 5 stars.
