Alex and Eliza

Alex and Eliza (Alex & Eliza #1)Alex and Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I wanted to love this book - after all, I thoroughly enjoyed Chernow's biography of Hamilton and loved reading Miranda's libretto and background book on the musical. But the charm and wonder of the respective real life and fictional characters was lost in this story. There were brief glimpses, but mostly I just felt bored or in a hurry to press forward. If I hadn't been so determined to finish (or stuck in a doctor's office for three and a half hours), I'm sorry to say I might have moved on without finishing.

Glad to be on to the next. Happy reading and happy summer--
