Romise she was doneDone thinking about himDone worrying about himDone reaching out to. DNF 76%Mariana Zapata's books have been on my to be read pile since her breakout book Kulti and Wall of Winnipeg Me And despite my friend's urging I've been reticent in trying her books For one I find 500 books intimidating Two I'm a moody reader and you guys know how that isBut the blurb for The Best Thing hooked me right in and I knew that if I ever start a Zapata book this would be a good choice Plus I was in the mood for slow burnsUnfortunately this one didn't uite go as expected I was 3 chapters in when I knew that Mariana Zapata's writing style and I won't get along Still I pushed through but by 36% I was already skimming and had to restrain myself from chucking my Kindle across the roomSounds dramatic I know But yeah this book didn't do anything but annoy the hell out of me And I wanted to love it I really do but the harder I tried the madder I got at everything the writing the characters the plot that's going nowhere everythingWriting this review now I tried to remember if there's something I liked about it and the only one I could think of was I liked Lenny's grandpa and her Uncle Peter That's it Everything else just bored me to tearsLenny bless her heart had some nice moments I liked how she stood up for herself and drew boundaries when it came to Jonah I liked that I would've liked her character if I hadn't been so annoyed at the repetitiveness of the writing Being in Lenny's head was torture Mainly because her inner monologue was wearisome That and she's allergic to just using nouns and pronouns Instead of using he him his or really just Jonah she thinks like this“The biggest man greeted him”“But the still an asshole swallowed hard”“I glanced back at Not Really a Fucker”“The biggest man at the gym now The biggest man in my life”“The man whose”“The man who probably saw too much”“The big man kept coming to my office”“The big brown haired man”“The big shit head”Like whaaat It's so weird and distracting I mean can you imagine thinking about your significant other like he's a stranger Call it a writing tick or whatever I call it lack of editing Also for the love of God just say brown skin instead of pussyfooting around Saying richer skin tone when you actually mean brown is just ridiculous I went through so many instances where Lenny was waxing poetic over Jonah's skin and his Maori teammates and she just about used every condiment except to say that they have brown skin No need to attribute it to honey or coffee Just say brown It's not that hardSpeaking of Jonah He was a one dimensional bore Really apart from Grandpa and Peter I found all the characters in this book boring and the writing unimaginative but tries too hard to be profoundBut what really killed my enjoyment was the repetitiveness Look I've read books where details are repeated because a they are important and b the books are part of a long series with hundreds of characters and storylines But this wasn't that There were pages of Lenny's inner monologue that repeats every single thing she was thinking and feeling 3 pages before And just when you thought it's done you get treated again to her inner monologue thinking about the same thing It's an endless nightmare of repetitionEvery single feeling and observation gets repeated over and over again until I was internally screaming I GET IT HE HAS HONEY COLORED BROWN EYES JESUS CHRIST Again mentioning the colors of his eyes isn't necessarily bad but when you mention it even there's no need to is just irritatingOverall MZ isn't for me I love slow burn romances but this didn't feel like a slow burn This felt unnecessarily drawn out And boring There's no plot and no character development and whatever redeeming ualities this book had were smothered by the tedious writing
