I am struggling to not be harsh and say "a waste of my time". There are some moments of brilliance in this book.. but they were fleeting. I really struggled with this one. It is considered to be YA.. and this one felt like a YA novel. Although it deals with fantasy/magical themes... it didn't capture my imagination and it was all I could do to finish it. Alas, this will not be a trilogy I complete.
Now my big decision is whether or not to read The Fold by Peter Clines or Robopocalyse by Daniel H Wilson. Actually I think I will go Fold and then Robots... and that will be 50 books this year!! This will be an ongoing goal for me each year to hit the 50 book reading milestone. It is achievable and rewarding.
I have already starting thinking what are realistic goals to set for 2016... the last few years the goals I have actually achieved or come close to ... well... that is a mighty slim list!
