Hi everyone! This is Julia of The Broke and the Bookish, formerly blogging on my own at The Competitive Bibliomaniac.
I read mostly historical romance, but can often be found reviewing paranormal romance, young adult books (mostly distopian/fantasy), fantasy/sci-fi, classics, and the occasional non-fiction book about languages.
Feel free to follow and reblog!
I officially returned this to the library today. I just really couldn't get into it.
Here is why:
1. Most of the time I really dislike first person narration.
2. This was first person narration that FLIPPED PEOPLE every other chapter. Now I have seen this done well, but here the problem was that you read a chapter then spent the first ten pages of the next chapter going over what just happened from the other persons perspective.
It just wasnt for me. 55 pages in is past my "give it 30 pages" rule. So I am out.
