#HailTheBail

Bailedbailed

I made it to 60ish pages before removing this book from my e-reader. I didn't connect with the protagonist, and I think it was because of the way the author attempted interiority and foreshadowing, and the book written in the 1st person read like an annoying person constnatly vague booking for attention.

Bailedbailed

Romance is not really a go-to genre for me, but I love to be pleasantly surprised when I enjoy a new-to-me author… unfortunately, this one just wasn‘t for me. I am not super into Hollywood, other than paging through the occasional People magazine. The shift to USC didn‘t improve things, either because by that point, I was fed up with how self-centered the main character, Val, was. Some MC‘s can be fun to hate, but this wasn‘t that. Not for me!

We are halfway through the month of June, and how are we doing? 😄

I finished one of my #JuneOfARC reads, and I‘m halfway through the second. Not quite where I wanted to be, but better than no progress at all!

Booksblanketsandahotbeverage Way to go! I‘m caught up on my arcs (I don‘t request that many anymore) and I‘m waiting for approval on one. 2d
julesG Lurking in the shadows. I read one and started seven, which I might DNF. I really don't know why I don't gel with those books. 2d
BookmarkTavern @Booksblanketsandahotbeverage Congrats! That‘s really impressive! 🎉🎉🎉 @julesG Good job on the one, and #hailthebail on the others if you need to! 👍🏻👍🏻 24h
Monica5 I have actually done good. Finished 5 and currently working on 2. 18h
BookmarkTavern @Monica5 Wow! That‘s amazing! Good on you! 🥳🥳🥳 11h

This has been on my shelf for years. I have started it twice. Sixty pages in and I don‘t find it interesting at all.

Bailing on this, or more putting it aside. Just not my type of read. #roll100 off the TBR

I can't say why, but the book and I don't gel.

Love the cover though.

Okay, is it me or is this book BORING?? 😂 I mean, it's okay, I guess, but I have definitely been more plowing my way through than particularly looking forward to picking this book up. Would it be more interesting if I was more familiar with British history?? Let me know if any of you are enjoying this more than me haha

BarkingMadRead It‘s….. interesting? Not at all what I was expecting when Puck first showed up 🤣 7d
TheAromaofBooks @BarkingMadRead - I'm like, isn't Puck supposed to be mischievous?! This one just seems to be a history teacher 😂 7d
TheBookHippie I thought Puck was supposed to be naughty 🤷🏻‍♀️ it‘s better read in the morning 👀🫣when my brain is working full capacity. 🤣 7d

CatLass007 It didn‘t really interest me so I‘ve decided on an early bail #hailthebail! 7d
TheAromaofBooks @TheBookHippie - I agree! I have to concentrate way more than I should for a children's book 😂 6d
TheAromaofBooks @CatLass007 - Makes sense to me!! Do you want me to take you off the tag list for this one, then? 6d
CatLass007 Only if it‘s easy for you to do and easy for you to put me back on the list for next month. 6d
TheAromaofBooks @CatLass007 - I keep a master list where I check every month and see who wants to read the next book, and then individual lists for each book. So it is no big deal to add or remove you!! 😁 5d
CatLass007 Then please remove me from the tag list for Puck and add me back for Robinson Crusoe. 5d
CatLass007 💗 4d

Loved this author at first but lately they all read the same... But once they talk of bondage - I'm out.
