Single in Buenos Aires by Roxana Valea
“Forty-one-year-old polo player Roxy arrives in Argentina with a to-do list that includes healing from a polo injury and falling in love with a handsome Argentine. From polo boots to tango shoes, the adrenaline of riding horses to glamorous after-game parties, Roxy learns to navigate this unfamiliar landscape with the help of new friends who teach her to take life as it comes. But will she find true love? Over three months in Buenos Aires, nothing goes according to plan, and yet, all the items on her list mysteriously get ticked off in the end. Just not the way she had imagined.”
I’m reading this for a book tour.Â That’s always worrisome for me.Â I’m so picky that I don’t know if I’m going to like something or not.Â But I started this on Sunday and so far so good.
I’m still listening to this one.Â I think it is about 19 hours long.Â I need to take breaks with it.Â It is the kind of audiobook where I know I’m going to love it when I start listening but sometimes it is hard to make myself push play.Â It is deep and rich and textured and has many, many things going on.Â Sometimes I just want my brain to have a break while driving.Â I absolutely recommend it though.Â I’m about halfway through and things are starting to come together – maybe?
I loved The Starless Sea, but it is definitely a complicated book. I read it, but I’m planning to do an audio re-read of it in a few months.
I find that I’m getting to be a much pickier reader too. That is leading to lots more DNFs on my review stack. Come see my week here and Happy New Year!
Nineteen hours! Eek. I just canâ€™t do audiobooks when I can read the book in three hours or so. Iâ€™m glad you are enjoying it though.
Wishing you a great reading week
