bookshelves: need-to-finish

this is not a bad book

it’s not!! I’m enjoying it!!!

however, it is VERY slow (since it is focused around Leigh’s grief), and usually, I’m fine with slow books. but I can currently feel myself on the edge of a slump and I will not let a slow book drag me down into that hellhole, so for now, this book is on hold

---------------------------------------------

I mean, I’m not saying that I’m still in disbelief that one of my most anticipated 2018 releases is in my hands, or that I’m dropping everything to read this, but... that’s exactly what I’m saying

(p.s. THE ARC IS SIGNED)

// unofficial buddy read with the one who gives me good lick, the one who stabs her pets, and too gay for their own good

thank you so much sabrien!! i hope you love it if you read it 💞


Grand Admiral Tofu King I had the same problem with it. It's a beautiful book and I really want to know what's going to happen, but because it's SLOOOW, I had to put it on hold as well. I do hope to finish it one day.


message 22: by [deleted user] (new)

i love you!! do let me know when you pick it back up again!!


꒰ Dane ꒱ ༉‧˚۞ You’re right! I read this and I loved it but it’s to slow and after I read 79% of the book..my reading slump started and I paused this for nearly a month and I can’t read any books and so I read graphic novels instead...and even if I paused it for almost a month I still have put it in my favourite books list it’s just that I think If I had read this without pausing it might’ve been in my top 4 or up favourite book of all time...
