DNF @ 60%

Hey, I gave this one a fair shot.

I was told this was going to be an atmospheric, slow burner that would stay with me long after finishing, but it was too much of a slow burner for me and I've decided I don't have the patience to finish this one off.

My reading mood has been very weird recently and if I'm not reading something that's fast-paced and ominous, I'm not into it. I enjoyed the part of this book I did read but I don't have it in me to finish it, it's not quick enough to keep my attention.

Just because I'm DNFing this one, doesn't mean I wouldn't recommend it. At no point did I think this was a badly written novel. The characters are in-depth, the story is interesting and the narration is different. It's just a "slow burner", as said before, so only read it if you have the patience to.

Thanks to Netgalley and Random House UK, Cornerstone for giving me the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest review. Sorry I didn't enjoy it!
