I would never tell or encourage a person not to read a book , what bothered me, may not bother you.
So I was reading another book, and a friend I used to work with asked if I would read this with her, seeing how my book fund is low until Friday, I reluctantly said yes.
Having an addiction to reading is expensive. #thestruggleisreal.
In saying that, I found this book more disappointing then I would a KU book.
So before I go into why I didn’t enjoy this book, let me start with what I did like.
- Ryder blushes, while I never thought I find that endearing, I did
- Mallory and Ryder’s first date
- My favorite commercial was mentioned.
Let me start by saying I HATE too much inner dialogue, I end up looking like
I knew this was going to happen because Mallory doesn’t speak a lot. It just felt like this book could of had less ramblings.
So to insert a pun here because I can’t resist, The problem with forever, is that it took forever. LOL
Sooo how do I say this, without sounding like an insensitive twat?
Mallory had a very tough childhood, and it makes it hard for her to use her words. She was taught a young age to always be quiet. While I understand, the stutter was tiresome, she even stuttered in her inter dialogue, I noticed even other characters started to stutter.
Now in saying that, I don’t have a problem with a person who stutters,
but when writing a a book … …. …. …. …. it….is ….hard…… to…… keep……reading…….. when….there…..is ……..all…. this… going… on
I’m not sure how this could have been avoided, but I loathed it.
Paige…. See, I could never be mad at Paige, because well, she’s not wrong. If Rider was my boyfriend, I would have been the Paige in this story. I was more interested in Paige then, I was Mallory.
All in all, as a whole this book was just a little too much for my taste, and this is why I avoid YA
