Nanny Returns - DNF

I really wanted to read this book. I loved The Nanny Diaries and could not wait to get my hands on Nanny Returns. So imagine my disappointment when I put this book down not once, not twice and not even three times! I put it down four times and finally decided to give up. As much as I wanted to know what happened between Nanny and Grayer, I just got to the point that I no longer cared.

I didn't click with Nanny in this book (or any of the characters). I found myself re-reading passages out of confusion about what the characters were talking about. Eventually I started skimming pages waiting for something to happen, but nothing of interest, to me, happened.

What about you? Have you read The Nanny Diaries and its sequel Nanny Returns? What are your thoughts?


  1. UGHHHHHHHHH sorry, and I'm sorry to say I have this one to "attempt"..The reviews are pretty bad!

  2. Diane-

    I don't know what to tell you about this book. I really tried to finish, but just realized how much time I wasted on it. If you want to read it, read it. Your opinion may vary from mine.

    If you do decide to read it, let me know. I'm curious to hear what your thoughts are.

  3. I finished it, but didn't love it. I had a hard time remembering what happened in the first book, and there was much that reminded us!

  4. This is so disappointing! I loved the first one and was looking forward to this but the reviews I have seen have not been good.
