I was really motivated at the beginning of March to read because I had just came off of a three week reading slump. I only read three books but I typically read between 3-5 a month so that isn’t too bad. Lets see what I rated these books.
“The Ex Talk” By Rachel Lynn Solomon
Shay was raised to be a radio host, her dad said she always had a face for radio. After college she got a job as a producer at the local radio station in hopes to one day get to host her own show. However, she was always afraid her voice wasn’t something people would want to listen too.
After ten years a new hotshot journalist winds up finding himself on the air telling a political story only after a few months of being in the station. Animosity grows between the two over time. But when the station is at risk of going under they fight to keep their jobs by offering to host a hit new show called “The Ex Talk”.
They are suddenly forced to work hand in hand as co hosts who supposedly used to date and now are somehow qualified to give out relationship advice. Can they keep the peace and make their listeners believe they had previously dated or will all the charades come crumbling apart?

“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” By J.K. Rowling
I don’t think this one needed a synopsis or even a full review so I will just leave you my thoughts here.
I felt like this book was a really slow read for me and that is only because I had recently seen the movie and so I just didn’t vibe with all the scenes. I did however really like all the stuff about S.P.E.W and also anything that wasn’t in the movie. These things made the book worth the read!
“Whoever fights monsters should see to it that, in the process, he does not become a monster. If you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”From “A Flicker in the Dark”
“But maybe that’s what we all are—halfway-broken people searching for things that will smooth our jagged edges.”From “The EX Talk”
“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”From “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”
QOTD: Have you read any of these? What did you rate them?
