I started this book by thinking, I'll really love this. But as I started going through more pages, this woman really tested my nerve. Not gonna lie, some of them were actually good. But those were in fewer numbers comparing to the vast ocean of meh and what the fuck!?
Some of them were downright degrading. She literally pits another woman against her, to show that she was better. Another woman who has nothing to do with her. She is bitter because her ex dates her. Like this line for instance,
