DNF REVIEWS (FIRST EDITION)
Lemme tell you I just DNF’ed a lot of books. And this is a surprise because I don’t ever DNF as much as possible. But this one is just too much for me.
When I saw that this was available to request at Netgalley, I immediately got excited because I loved this certain book from Van Dyken. So I wasn’t hesistant to try this. But then the characters gaaah. It made me want to bang my head at the nearest cement wall and at the same time hurl the book as far away from me as possible. THESE CHARACTERS ARE THE BANE OF MY EXISTENCE. The girl, is just to indecisive and feels too much like a marie-sue character. Then the guy who is also indecisive. And just ends up making a fool of himself and does nothing but do stupid decision which was really obvious by the way. Its just overall annoying and hard to read.
I remembered that the main reason why I wanted to read this book is because I loved what I read from the summary. Very sci-fi and it looks different compared to most of the sci-fi books that I’ve read. But it all just felt too much for me. There was a part in the beginning that felt too much like an info-dump which almost made me want to stop reading it entirely. I’m stopped by half of the book, and as much as I want to try to finish this book, I don’t think I can.
The History of Glitter and Blood by Hannah Moskowitz
I’ve read a book from Hannah before. But I have no interest in completing this book at all. I tried to continue it since I do have a big interest about faes and faeries and everything fantasy. But this one, I don’t really have a big interest in. It’s a a bit early for me to stop at 10% or so. But this book just doesn’t do it for me at all. As sad as that is.
