    One thought on “Crazy for You”

    1. Este libro ha sido una gratísima, pero muy gratísima sorpresa. Ayuda que su contenido no tenga absolutamente nada que ver con su portada, que es el típico estilo usado para las novelas con personajes masculinos millonarios, controladores y obsesivos. Nada más lejos. La constante del libro es aquella zona de confort en que caen la mayoría de las relaciones de pareja, donde las cosas no están mal, pero tampoco están bien.La historia transcurre en la pequeña localidad de Tibbett (Ohio), don [...]

    2. Obožavam da muškarcima "uvaljujem" da prevode ženske knjige i slušam njihove komentare A tek neke njihove interpretacije :)

    3. Nope nopity nope! This one just did not make me crazy for it!When reading the blurb (which incidentally I never do and did it for this first time here), I thought it was interesting. Also after having heard about Jennifer Crusie and her books from a friend, I thought I should simply go ahead and read this one, especially as it was loved by a good friend of mine. However, despite the book starting off well, it was all downhill after that, without any point of redemption!So let's get on with what [...]

    4. **Audiobook Review**This one is so difficult for me to review! It did, in fact, make me a little crazy while listening to it. I've read/listened to a lot of Crusie lately, and I don't think that this is one that will stick in my mind for any time - at least I hope not.What I liked:-Scant little. But let's be clear, I did not HATE this book. It was Crusie's usual humor and pacing. If you like her stuff, then don't skip this one on my account. -The love story was there, the awkward circumstances w [...]

    5. This book is like a well worn jumper that you pull on to keep you warm as the early winter chill starts to bite. I love it. I have it sitting permanently in my bedside cupboard, ready to drag out if I need a little pick me up. Its premise is simple but smart. Quinn, thirty-six, leaves her boyfriend, Bill and starts to lead a new, more spontaneous life which includes among other things, a (very) hot affair with Nick, her used to be brother-in-law now best friend. The only problem is that Bill sti [...]

    6. Me encantó.- Es un libro que demuestra que una muy buena historia de amor, no necesita ni millonarios, ni personajes oscuros, ni hechos espectaculares.- Simplemente muy buena!

    7. What the ---- was that? The blurb and the cover may be the most misleading ever.! Reading this book is like going to watchand ending up with . It's the Rachel Dolezal of books, it identifies with Rom-Com.Quinn has been living with Bill the Dudley Do-Right, Viking looking, successful football coach. She finds a dog she wants to keep, he say no. She moves out. Nick (her ex BIL, best friend and secret crush) helps her. From here on out it continues in the cutesy light-hearted contemporary rom-com f [...]

    8. This story was . . . problematic. Nick was too much of a loner jerkwad to be attractive as love interest and Quinn a bit too stubbornly stupid to be sympathetic as main character. The secondary characters elevated the story somewhat as they were more sympathetic and attractive than either Nick or Quinn—saving this from two-star territory, but only just.

    9. Siempre que leo a Jennifer Crusie me parece estar viendo una sit-com americana. Hasta espero escuchar las risas grabadas cuando ocurre algo gracioso.No sé si me gusta mucho eso.Lo que me gustó es que los personajes son gente normal (maestros, peluqueras, mecánicos). Nada de millonarios, ejecutivos ni chicos malos, ni vírgenes multiorgásmicas.Los conflictos me parecieron originales y me llegaron: -las relaciones de parejas basadas en la comodidad y la costumbre, no en la pasión -la rutina q [...]

    10. Όταν πρωτοδιάβασα βιβλίο της Jennifer Crusie, δεν περίμενα πως -στο είδος της- θα γινόταν μία από τις αγαπημένες μου συγγραφείς. Παρά που βρίσκεται πολλά χρόνια στο λογοτεχνικό στερέωμα, και παρά που έχει γράψει δεκάδες βιβλία, άρα θα ήταν λογικό κάποια στιγμή, οι ιστορίες της, να α [...]

    11. This was one of Crusie shorter books, and honestly it was funny but it was also really disturbing at the same time. Quinn is the main character and she is tired of being the sister who is always calm and collected and nice to everyone. She always ignores what she really wants because she thinks people need to see her as being the responsible one in her family. When she decides to adopt a dog from the pound and takes it back home her live in boyfriend Bill tells her she can't have the dog. Quinn [...]

    12. I found this JC book to be very chaotic, but still I liked it. There's a lot going on with different characters that come full circle. Typical JC. Complicated, funny, romantic, sexy and quirkyl that I love about her :)

    13. Quinn McKenzie parece tener la vida perfecta: un novio que la adora, un trabajo que le encanta y una familia y amigos igualmente maravillosos. Pero ella no está satisfecha, quiere más fulgor en su vida. Desde el momento en que decide adoptar a un perro callejero, se replantea y se tambalea su vida y tendrá a un ex novio y a un buen amigo locos por ella.Primer libro que leo de esta autora y la verdad es que me ha gustado aunque quizás esperaba algo más. Lo negativo creo que se lo lleva la pa [...]

    14. It had been a while since I read this book, and I couldn't really remember why. I bought it in the first place for the same reason I look at other chick lit books - there's a dog in it. Other than that, there's no other reason to like it until you read it. It certainly wouldn't pass the Bechdel test, but to be fair, none of the men talk about anything but women, either. And the premise is pretty tired. A woman is in a rut, and she decides to make some changes. Madness ensues. It is the execution [...]

    15. 1.5 starsI usually affiliate Crusie with silly yet fun contemporary trashy romance novels, where I quite like the characters and like reading what they go through before the usual conclusion. While this one started off like one, it quickly devolved into something that wasn't really fun to read.Everyone's angry and short-tempered, which is annoying in itself, but then there's the ladies of the books (with the exception of Edie) whom are just so unreasonable and rather high maintenance. I felt sor [...]

    16. Crusie is one of my favorite authors, so I always enjoy re-reading her books. This is a great one for alphabet challenges on character names as you have a female Q - Quinn and a male Z - Nick Ziegler. Quinn decides to get out of her rut and go after what she wants for a change.What I enjoyed:* The characters. Crusie always writes interesting characters.* Katie, the dog.* There are four romantic stories taking place and all are interesting.What could have been better:* Bill was unrealistic. (view [...]

    17. ¡¡¡ODIO A BILL!!! Tuve unas ganas profundas de molerlo a palos a lo largo de toda la historia, así que estuve muy contenta cuando Quinn y Nick le dieron su merecido.Desde el principio se puede ver que Quinn y Nick son el uno para el otro, y los únicos que no se dan cuenta son ellos. Y Katie es la pequeña perrita pulgosa en medio de todo que logra que Quinn se de cuenta de lo que realmente puede hacerla feliz en la vida y que luche por ello.Lean esta historia, tienen de todo. Amor, risas, d [...]

    18. Kind of nice. Ok. I couldn't get into the characters that much.It was about a school teacher, Quinn, her family and friends. It was about relationships that weren't going well, some were breaking up. Some got back together later. Nothing really excited me. Even after seeing her end up with Nick, which was a happy ending, I felt as if too many details were missing. The story wasn't as fulfilling as I would have liked.DATA:Sexual language: mild. Number of sex scenes: three. Setting current day, sm [...]

    19. I had a great time reading this :)4.5 would be more accurate.I loved it! It was funny and (surprisingly) steamy!It has an appropriate title, really.

    20. Jennifer Cruise never rarely disappoints! This story was near perfect. It was party fiction with 5 POV's. I'm not a fan of party fiction, and initially I thought I'd be putting this back on the shelf. But she had me before the end of the first chapter!Once upon a time, there was a mutt, and before the happily ever after this mutt would change everything and then put it back together again. Katie, the mutt, sneaks into Quinn's life and puts a wrecking ball in her seemingly perfect relationship wi [...]

    21. One thing about Crusie's novels: there's always something going on beneath the surface.You might think this is just a story about a girl having to chose between two men. Her rock-solid live-in boyfriend, thoughtfulness incarnated, and boring as boiled eggs on the one side, and on the other, somebody she's always had a crush on. He was once married to her sister for a few disasterous weeks. The sister has moved on and is happily settled, but Quin still can't get past Nick. Who is something of a k [...]

    22. This is the first Jennifer Crusie novel I've tried, after hearing from numerous people on LiveJournal that she's worth reading--and, well, adhering to the LJ canon has rarely steered me wrong so far. I did like it. It was cute and had just the right level of fluff, and I really liked the dialogue, which was often witty and fun. The hero and heroine, Nick and Quinn, weren't made overly stupid for authorial reasons, though towards the end of the book, I was just urging them to go get busy already, [...]

    23. Well, having read Getting Rid of Bradley, I was disappointed in this novel from Crusie. I believe this one came out first but no matter, it is almost the exact same plot. Boring girl leaves boring guy. She loves dog(s) and needs a change by way of a haircut. Meets a dark, rebel-type bad boy with a heart of gold who eventually falls in love with said character despite being a bachelor-till-I-die type. He saves her from mysteries threats from ex boyfriend. She has a close call with death/abuse. Al [...]

    24. I guess I'm addicted. I mean, there's really no excuse for the number of Jennifer Crusie novels I've devoured if I didn't really like them, at least a little bit. I recognize that the plotlines are transparent, the characters are a bit silly, and the sex scenes are strangely reminiscent of each other. But they're perfect to casually pick up, read a bit in the workroom, read a bit on the reference desk, and read before going to bed. I never feel like I'm missing a pivotal moment despite not devot [...]

    25. This could have been a great book if Bill was not insane and if Quinn and Nick had a better friendship. I'll start with Bill. It was completely melodramatic and too insane to read when Bill became insane. Yes, he starts off being annoying, planning out Quinn's life with him, but he becomes progressively insufferable. It might have helped jumpstart Quinn and Nick's relationship, but it was definitely detracting. At least to me. Quinn and Nick were supposed to be best friends. How exactly does tha [...]

    26. Ένα βιβλίο με πρωταγωνιστές γύρω στα 35 τους, οι οποίοι αντιδρούν σαν να είναι 18 χρονών, όλο πείσματα και γκρίνιες και στερεότυπα του στυλ: "Κάτι θέλω αλλά δεν σου το λέω, βρες το μόνος σου". Γυναίκες που γκρινιάζουν για τους άντρες τους ή τις βαρετές σχέσεις τους και προσπαθού [...]

    27. Enjoyable story to read. Definitely interesting with some very crazy characters thinking they're kind of stuck in the same old daily boring routine wanting to feel basically wanted again and mix things up a bit. Then you get some who just can't handle change clearly at all
