Well...this isn t my kind of book. It's not badly written I was just bored and life is too short to be stuck reading a book I couldn't get into or find myself caring what happened next. I think this is a case of historical fiction mismatch.

🎧 #currentlylistening to this #audiobook after a series of books that I #bailed on.

QuietlyLaura I want to read this! I thought The Bookish Life Of Nina Hill was so good! ☺️ 5mo
marleed I hope you like this one! 5mo
ShyBookOwl I bailed on a few recently too. I hope this one is a win for you! 5mo
KMM I read this a couple months ago and let me tell you, I wanted to go out and create a garden, lol 5mo
Chelleo @KMM Yassss! And I‘m not sure that‘s a good idea at all!! Would love to have my crew come and build a garden in my yard though! Welcome to Litsy! 5mo

This book sounded so so good. Tried reading the book,listening to the audio version,-nothing worked for me. Maybe it‘s my mood, attention span, time- whatever. Just not for me right now, so back to the library it goes!

I was hoping for humor, but instead I‘m just bored.

wanderinglynn That‘s unfortunate. You‘d think she‘d be funny in her own book. 7mo
AutumnRLS I find her super interesting in theory, but not so much in reality. 7mo
Eggs She was hilarious as a young comedian! But in old age, not so much-just pure snark 7mo
Clwojick @Eggs agreed! Very snarky! 😂 (edited) 7mo

WANTED TO ENJOY THIS NOVEL but it unfortunately DRUG ON WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF EXCESSIVE DETAILS THAT MADE FOR A TEDIOUS READ #DNF #Bailed #DidNotFinish #BabyTeeth #ZojeStage #Fiction

Gaylagal2 I bailed too...this should have been so good! Maybe the next novel will be better 🤞 8mo
RadicalReader @Gaylagal2 it really should have been good. I am also looking forward to her next novel best thing about authors is waiting and looking forward to their next books. One book I‘m excited for is the upcoming novel by John Marrs (edited) 8mo
Bookladylinda I want to read the audio on this one. 8mo
RadicalReader @Bookladylinda I hope you enjoy it sometimes books are a lot better as an audiobook. The reader when listening to the audiobook was awesome 8mo

Been looking forward to this book but it took me less than a minute to bail. I can‘t listen to the author‘s voice. 🙉🤦🏾‍♀️ Off to reserve a print copy. #bailed #narrationmatters #nope

Megabooks Ooo! Glad I went print with this! It‘s a good book. Authors reading their books can go either way. 9mo
Kaila-ann Glad I got a print copy. I‘m about 3/4 of the way through and it‘s pretty fascinating. 9mo
Bookish.SAM Oh no!!! The narrator totally makes (or breaks!) a book for me. Especially frustrating when it‘s a book you‘re really looking forward to... I feel for ya 😕 (edited) 9mo

lele1432 Lol! A bad narrator can really ruin your reading experience! I have a physical copy but have yet to dive in. 9mo
SW-T Narrators make all the difference on audiobooks! 9mo
Chelleo Yeah, bummer but I have no patience for a bad narrator. @Megabooks @Kaila-ann @bookish.sam @lele1432 @SW-T 9mo
Susannah Same! I would have finished this book months ago if it weren‘t for the narrator‘s (author‘s! 😳) voice. I‘m super sensitive to audiobook narrators; they really can make or break a book. 7mo

I could not get into this book. It felt as if I needed a certain amount of knowledge beforehand or a physics degree to understand what was going on. The inside blurb seemed really interesting, as did the cover but it was completely different to what I was expecting so I‘m bailing. I‘m out. #bailed #ontogreenerpastures

I‘m out after reading this. It‘s not a competition and I was struggling with this anyway. There was some beautiful language but I wasn‘t connected to it anyway.
I would love in the future to read a different book on Nigerian food but this one gets a hard pass from me. Maybe she was trying to be funny but I don‘t think so. #bailed

akckitty Wow..... People with that attitude/mindset. No 🤬 thanks. 11mo
Weaponxgirl @akckitty right?! I literally sat there saw that and just went f*ck this. 11mo
Jas16 I would have bailed too. 11mo

Weaponxgirl I‘m gonna read this for my #readingwomen challenge instead for the Nigerian author prompt instead. 11mo
Weaponxgirl @Jas16 thanks, I don‘t normally rage bail but for these sort of sentiments I will. 11mo
Weaponxgirl So a quick google search tells me it‘s illegal to be homosexual in Nigeria and you can be put in prison for up to 14 years and in some places people are killed for it. The sentiment is even worse to me knowing that. (edited) 11mo
GingerAntics Straight men treat anyone they see as inferior like total shit. The answer is not for each group they see as inferior to only deal with themselves. We all need to come together. 11mo
CarolynM You are so right - it's not a competition. I find myself having to say that to people a lot about a lot of things. 11mo
Weaponxgirl @GingerAntics it was strange as she seemed to go out of her way to include that in the book about food. And yes, we need to come together we can‘t start quantifying who‘s oppression is worse. 11mo
Weaponxgirl @CarolynM i couldn‘t even finish that chapter with that attitude. 11mo
Bertha_Mason Good for you. Life is too short to finish bad books. 11mo

I tried I really did! Made it halfway through this #chunkster but it‘s just too much work and not enough payoff. I struggle to get through each chapter 😖 anyone else have trouble with this one?!

AmyG Me. I bailed on this one. 1y
RaimeyGallant Haven't attempted it yet. 1y
emilyhaldi @Cinfhen I suppose its to be expected that I wouldn‘t like this since you loved it 😜 I had such high hopes!! But alas, it‘s just not for me. 1y

emilyhaldi @AmyG good to know I‘m not alone! (edited) 1y
Cinfhen No!!!! 😭😭😭We are usually in #booksync 👯‍♀️oh well... U gave it a fair chance but it‘s really a brilliant book (edited) 1y
emilyhaldi @Cinfhen while I couldn‘t get into the story, I‘m totally amazed by James‘ ability to write in so many different voices, and his knowledge of that time period is seriously impressive!!! 1y
Blaire I started it in a doctor‘s waiting room last year which was not the ideal setting for a complicated book. I #bailed but hope to try again. I only got about 50 pages in. 1y
quietjenn Yes. Technically I haven't given up yet (this is my second or third attempt) but I also haven't actually picked up in months ... And I'm not nearly as far asking as you. 1y
Mdargusch I‘m surprised @Cinfhen liked this and you didn‘t. 🤔 1y
Reviewsbylola Glad you finally called it quits. 1y
BarbaraBB I had that trouble too but there was this moment when things came together and I ended up loving it. But looking back I am surprised I hold on that long. I can totally understand your bailing! 1y

Nope... I know it‘s fluff but this one was ridiculously so. 🤯 You have to have some kind of plot and wanting to jump ahead, after the first chapter to see if it gets better, is never a good sign! 🙄🤷‍♀️ In all fairness though I‘ve been reading a lot of Karin Slaughter lately = plot driven and high intensity, so it just might be bad timing on my part but I really don‘t think so!

Daughter-of-words I loved this series but it is very over the top and an unrealistic view of mental illness. I think the heroes bipolar disorder is supposed to be the plot😬 1y
CoverToCoverGirl Thanks for clarifying the plot for me! 😂 because I really couldn‘t determine what it was. We both like a lot of the same authors and I have read the Manwhore books, which I really liked, but this one for me was just awful but glad you liked it. 😊 @Daughter-of-words 1y
