I'm really not sure about this book. I haven't been able to get into it and find myself wanting to listen to other other books or podcasts when I play it. Not really sure what it is about this one that I'm not connecting with. I've been listening to it for about 3 weeks - usually not a promising sign that I'll finish the thing. The plot seems iffy and drags on quite a bit. Anyone else feel the same way?

I'm going to be the unpopular opinion here and admit I DNF this one. I read 48% of it and still just couldn't stay. Meredith and Nina were just a hamster wheel of the same emotions/excuses/lack of communication and I figured out that not having the mother's POV made me have no interest in her story. Having said that, Hannah's writing is great. Truly. It's what kept me reading for as long as I did. #sosorry #dnf

Yeah, no. Language is way too flowery, and the book‘s pace suffers as a result #bookspin #bail #dnf

Nope. Can't do it. And I only feel bad because it's the #teamslaughter #buddyread. Turns out I can't handle this type of thriller. Honestly, I almost stopped after the first chapter. Oh well.

Do #wordsearch words count for books you #dnf?

TrishB Her books are always v.violent and gory! 2mo
gossamerchild @TrishB it's the violence towards women I can't handle. Hey writing style is fantastic, though, and I totally see why people enjoy her. 1mo

This was so close to a #dnf but I plodded on. It got a little spooky in the middle so I was going with a So-So, but the end changed it to a low pick.
Annie was a very annoying person and kind of dumbly naïve, but I guess that was the point.
I also may not be the right target age for this book.

The end made up a lot for me. And I LOVE Ralph.

Avanders Can‘t wait to read this one! 😄 Also, did you get the package from me? It should have arrived last weekend… 😬 2mo
MaleficentBookDragon @Avanders Yes I did. Thank you so much! I just posted a pic today. 2mo

I really liked the start of the book and was looking forward to an original story, but it fell into all the YA fantasy cliches and I am just burnt out on them. If you are a fan of YA fantasy, I would definitely recommend, just not for me. #dnf

Bailing on this one. Just not for me. The teenage boy character is just ugh… I may need a hiatus from YA.
Another #Roll100 pick off the TBR, unfortunately another #dnf.

PuddleJumper It's off your list! Shame it wasn't a good read 4mo

Second #DNF within the past week. This was was so mediocre, it just didn‘t hold my interest. Cool cover tho…
