So... yeah. There we go, that sums up my thoughts quite nicely. Really though? Wasn't bored, wasn't entertained, The Heretic's Daughter caught me right in the mediocre middle. I think it was because the book had a lot going for it, but the writing wasn't quite enough to push it to where it should have been.

As I sit here I'm having a lot of difficulty trying to figure out what it was that was off about it. The characters were good, the story of the Salem witch trials is a fascinating subject matter, and I found myself at certain points getting really emotionally pulled in. So why do I feel that this book only deserves a C+? The answer is: I don't know.

This is going to be one of those books that just didn't quite do it for me. Good. Not good enough. But I'm sure other people are going to read this book and be absolutely in love with it. While others are just going to down right not like it at all. This is going to be one of those books where my exact thoughts will come out in a discussion.

So what were your thoughts on the book? Did you read it? Enjoy it? Hate it? Let me know. Help me figure out why I really gave the book a C+. Who knows... maybe I'll change the grade.
