Stacey is 47% done with The Girl on the Train
I'm finding the book tedious rather than page turning. I realize I'm in the minority in terms of the reviews so I'm wondering what I'm missing.

I must be missing something because so far I've read a book about nothing really.

Stacey is 15% done with Room
I am struggling with the 5 year old narrator. The way he names all items in the room is very annoying. I have heard that though the beginning of the book is difficult it does improve so I will keep going.

Stacey is 30% done with Rough Magic: A Biography of Sylvia Plath
This book is almost painful to read. The author gets way too bogged down in minutia.

Stacey is 14% done with Rough Magic: A Biography of Sylvia Plath
This is difficult going. The writing is not very good and it feels as though the author is bogging us down with minutiae. Can't say I care that Plath ate a lot during camp when she was 14.

Stacey is 33% done with The Perks of Being a Wallflower
So far I am finding this book to be quite a struggle to get through. The voice of the narrator does not ring true to me. He sounds and writes like a 9 year not a supposedly intelligent 15 year old.

Not nearly as funny or engaging as the author's "Love" series.

The melodrama in this book makes it almost unreadable

I'm excited to start this book. I teach all about their research so I'm curious to learn more about them as people

Each individual sentence of this book is beautifully written and yet, the book is an excruciating read!

Not impressed do far. The inconsistencies between this book and Mama Ruby are huge.

I'm hoping that by the time I'm done I wont dislike the main character so much.

So far this book has been a struggle for me. Don't like the main character which is part of why its hard for me to get into this book.
