Really wanted to get into this because I‘m always down for a good dystopian but I just couldn‘t get into it. I was forcing myself to pick it up and I just gave up after the weird magic flying bear things

The subtitle says "365 days of the year," and it means it! This is one bird watcher's journal from January first to December 31st. Nothing more, nothing less. As an Instagram, I would follow it. As a book, I found it impossible to read. It's for the experienced birder, not the casual bird lover. (Pictured: a male Eastern Towhee, one of the many gorgeous photographs in this book.) #NFNov #dnf #Netgalley #HowBirdsBehave

I need to put this away for a few weeks. I‘m not in a super positive space right now ((lots of things going on with family & myself...we all seem to have breakdowns at the same time)) & this was NOT the best choice in book. It is setting me up for heartbreak, I can feel it. Maybe in December I can revisit. I like it though....even though the story is mostly told through letters, which can be irritating. #lastchristmasinparis #dnf #laterread

TheAromaofBooks I liked this book for the first 3/4 or so, but felt like it really petered out in the end. It wasn't a bad read, just not as strong all the way through as I wanted it to be. I hope things go better with you and your family - one day at a time!! 2w
Eggs I understand this feeling. Hope you and family are able to feel better soon💗💗 2w
marleed I hope you move through the next 6 weeks with moments of joy and happiness. It is a weird time with all the expectations. 2w

Rating: 1/5 :(
It is with a very heavy heart that I have DNFed The Toll. I loved that this book was coming out and was sooo excited. However, with the 100 pages I read, I felt like it was a lot of info dumping and boring. I was struggling with wanting to read it, so with such debate I dnfed it.

Rachel.Rencher 😮 oh I'm so shocked! I'm 200 pages in and loving it. 4w
The_Heeler_Booklife @Rachel.Rencher it can be me or maybe I didn‘t give it enough of a chance. Idk. Maybe down the road I‘ll try again. 4w
Lovesbooks87 So glad someone else is feeling the same way. I am almost 200 pages in and I am struggling! I am not liking it at all! 4w

Cailey_Mac Yikes!! I‘ve been wanting to read this next, as I loved the first two books 4w
The_Heeler_Booklife @Lovesbooks87 okay, I‘m glad I‘m not crazy about it. The first two had dull moments, but never like The Toll and I don‘t know it just feels different from the previous books with writing and the tone. 4w
The_Heeler_Booklife @Cailey_Mac you may still enjoy it. :) 4w
Lovesbooks87 @The_Heeler_Booklife I do feel like it is different than the other ones. I am still reading it and it is getting a little better but I don‘t see what can happen in the next 300 pages! 4w
Cailey_Mac @The_Heeler_Booklife definitely! I like to keep an open mind 😌 4w

I checked this one out because of curiosity and the buzz at the local #bookstore about it. It‘s not for me. It‘s a really immature version of Fifty Shades, which I read and liked. The writing, IMO, was just not very good, it‘s simplistic and somewhat repetitive, and the reader was not very engaging.

CoverToCoverGirl Indeed I do @CocoReads but nothing pertaining to cowboys, dang it! 1mo
CocoReads One of these days we should do a #saveahorse buddy read! 1mo
CoverToCoverGirl Yes please! @CocoReads Give it some thought and put forth some titles for us to choose from. You‘re the expert on that genre. 1mo
CocoReads I‘ll put my thinking cap on. 1mo

Another #DNF but at least I‘m whittling the list down. It‘s not horrible. But given that it‘s the first in a series, I just don‘t want to get that involved with this - I don‘t like it enough for that.
Thanks for the pick @Reagan-reads - one more step up Olympus for #MountTBR 🙌🏻
