REVIEW: The Book of Accidents

Oh, I so wanted to love this. Wanderers was my favorite read of 2019. Wendig is a master of complex interesting characters and world building. My challenge with this one is that I felt like I’d read it before. So many elements seemed pulled from Stephen King works. I don’t mind an allusion or a singular idea that is expanded and refreshed. But in this case I felt like it was a bunch of King ideas cobbled together. There were a few times where I felt it was a little too predictable and I needed to force myself to continue. If you haven’t read The Outsider or It or 11.22.64, you might be wowed by this one. But it was just a ground rule double for me and not a homerun. 

What’s the last book you had high hopes for that didn’t hold up?

I am the Vice President of Clinical Affairs for a medical device company where my job is to promote the utility of the device to doctors. I have science and business degrees and have editorial experience in medical communications. In college, I served as an Editorial Assistant for a healthcare communications company and have served on two editorial boards for peer-reviewed journals. In my free time, I always have a book in my hand... or two or three! On average, I read 20 books a month. I have looked to combine two of my skill sets to review on Goodreads and promote books on Instagram that I love to other readers. I'm open to partnering with publishers as an influencer for book tours, giveaways etc.
