Year 6, Book 31

31. Which Brings Me to You: A Novel in Confessions by Steve Almond and Julianna Baggot
This story is told in alternating letters written between a man and a woman who meet at a wedding, almost have sex in the coat closet but ultimately don’t. They then agree to write each other letters of confessions mostly about past loves and sexual experiences leading them up to the present and how they each wound up at the wedding. I really, really wanted to like this book more than I did. It came highly recommended to me by someone I usually trust for these types of things, but I just did not like it at all. I liked how the book started at the wedding, but once they started writing the letters I found I just really didn’t care about them or their past relationships. I found the whole thing pretty boring. I give it a 4 out of 10.
