After a lot of internal debate, I've finally decided to put this one to rest. I was so tremendously excited to read this that I picked it up as an ARC and read the first 30% or so, but then I set it down months ago and was never able to convince myself to put it back up. After numerous attempts now to resume it, I'm finally accepting the fact that I'm simply not invested enough in this story to bother. Chbosky is a brilliant writer and I stand by that, but the plot of this book simply does not warrant its length, in my opinion, and I don't care enough about the outcome to commit any more time to it. Sad day.

Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this ARC in exchange for an honest review!

BethAnn BookBumming So how was it??

I sadly got about 25% through before hitting a HUGE reading slump and having to put it on hold! It was pretty interesting so far but definitely longer than I think it needed to be even just judging from the first quarter. I'm looking forward to finishing it (hopefully soon) but also a little apprehensive about the length.
