This Is Where We Live: A Novel

This Is Where We Live - Janelle Brown This is really 2.5 stars but I am rounding up to 3 for my ranking because it was a First Reads win, and it's the least I can do.Though the description interested me, this didn't turn out to be my kind of book. The premise of people struggling with money and a "Quarter Life Crisis" of sorts was interesting enough, but I couldn't sympathize with any of the characters (in fact, I kind of hated them), which meant it was difficult staying invested in reading. The end of the book also gets rather melodramatic and really piles on the woe, which didn't help me keep going when I wasn't relating to anyone.
