I’m with you, Sheila. I also get what the author’s intended purpose was for narrating in that manner but it just didn’t work for me. It's weird to be in the overwhelming minority on this because 77% of GR users rated this book 4 or 5 stars which is pretty amazing. I wanted to adore this book.

But unfortunately I had to side with the lowly 6% of GR users who rated it 1 or 2 stars. It was just...ugh, not for me. :(

21757 I seem to be in the minority of people who didn't love this book. The second part redeemed it overall, so I upgraded my rating to 3 stars, but the first part just about did me in with boredom.

21757 My usual goal is to either improve my score from the previous challenge or read a higher number of books. However, the last challenge I participated in was fall 2012 and I only reported one book—talk about a boring challenge to overcome!

Using my personal src-challenge shelves I decided to calculate some averages. I discovered that I finished approximately 27 books during the fall challenges from 2009-2012.

So that’s my number to beat. I aim to finish 28 books for Fall 2014!

21757 I haven't participated since 2012 but I'm gearing up for the upcoming fall challenge and am so excited!

My previous Readerboard name was BETH F and I'd like to use the same for fall. Thanks!
