We Should Hang Out Sometime by Josh Sundquist

We Should Hang Out Sometime by Josh Sundquist
Average Rating on Goodreads:3.75 of 5 Stars
My Rating: DNF at 25%
Page Count: 336


A bright, poignant, and deeply funny autobiographical account of coming of age as an amputee cancer survivor, from Josh Sundquist: Paralympic ski racer, YouTube star, and motivational speaker.

Josh Sundquist only ever had one girlfriend.
For twenty-three hours.
In eighth grade.

Why was Josh still single? To find out, he tracked down the girls he had tried to date and asked them straight up: What went wrong?

The results of Josh's semiscientific, wholly hilarious investigation are captured here. From a disastrous Putt-Putt date involving a backward prosthetic foot, to his introduction to CFD (Close Fast Dancing), to a misguided "grand gesture" at a Miss America pageant, this story is about looking for love--or at least a girlfriend--in all the wrong places. 

**I received an e-copy of this book from Netgalley for an honest review**

I thought that this book would end up being a little more like Love and Other Unknown Variables, but it really wasn't...I was sorely disappointed in this book and I really wanted to like it. The writing wasn't as strong as it could have been, the characters had no deapth, I just could not connect to anything that was happening on an emotional level and considering Josh's past, you would think I could.

I had the intent of finishing this book because I really hate marking books DNF, I feel like I'm shirking my duties as a blogger, but then I realized that I have so many books I need to read right now and I don't have time to spend it on a book I know I will never like regardless of how much of it I read.

So, no, I didn't like this book, but that doesn't mean other people won't enjoy it.
