I like reading books about war dogs, shipwrecks, and lady aviators.

The Rainbow Comes and Goes: A Mother and Son On Life, Love, and Loss
Gloria Vanderbilt, Anderson Cooper
Love and Miss Communication: A Novel - Elyssa Friedland

Ultimately, this was a typical story of a mid-30s woman desperate to find love and settle down. That the characters were Jewish made it a bit more interesting for me. This story felt too long and drawn out while glossing over some very important details. I was thrown a bit for a loop when the main character become obsessed with some of the high schoolers she worked with-- and that loop got even bigger when one of the boys tried to kiss her. This was blamed on her "mixed signals" which included lots of touching. All of that happened off the page and felt unnecessary, juvenile, and just plain creepy. Those elements, and the whole idea that technology is ruining our lives, put this book onto my Didn't Hate, But Wouldn't Recommend list.
