Zzz...DNF...Zzz...

After turning page 165 of this book over and realizing that half of my attention was asleep...

description

...and the other half was contemplating whether or not I should trim my toenails before tomorrow's pedicure, I decided to call it quits here. You know, before my brain died.

Long story short...

1) I had no feel for the characters.

2) Could give two shits about what happened to said characters...

3) And not one single fuck about berry picking and horse travel.

One through three up there^^^ can also be translated thusly:

description

Therefore, I decided that the part where Lia lies to Pauline about something pretty significant was a good place to call it.

I'm not down with lying to people "for their own good," and I didn't feel like dealing with the contrived and predictable drama this lie would assuredly cause.

I was also bored by the made up songs and scriptures at the start of every chapter. And when those started to become longer than one page...Pfffft. Over and out homies.

Brittney Andrews (beabookworm) Yup - I feel yah! I'm almost almost done the third book and I feel like every time I flip a page I want to stab my eyes. Such a disappointing series! I must finish the last book though and resist the urge to DNF. lmao.

Helen 2.0 I have read so many bad reviews for this book and somehow I still feel like reading it... must be my inner masochist whispering to me.


Jilly But berry-picking is so exciting!! ;)
I'm one of the few readers who also didn't hop on this train.
Hope your next read is better.

I've read lots of good reviews from people with good taste, so you should definitely give it a go. You might love it :)

Dawn903 I am on page 356, and I am only readinf this book because I have yet to find another book series after I just finished one. The plot is so slow, I think the book could have been alot shorter
