TOP TEN TUESDAY
TOP TEN TUESDAY
NUMBER ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY-THREE
I was so bored out my skull when I finished, I had nothing to say on Goodreads. Bah. I will say that if you choose to write about mundane everyday occurrences you have to be very talented at it; it can be done, but it takes extreme finnese and strong style, which this author did not have. If it hadn't been a review book I would have DNFed it for sure. To be honest, I don't think the author intended to write about the mundane; I think she thought the events in the story were interesting. They were not. Blergh. This was also an audio book and the narrator was only marginally good.
I am still working on this title because I had to take some time to get the above audiobook listened to and reviewed for Audiobook Boom. I had three audiobooks on my list and wanted to get one cleared off so I won't get too far behind. This story is fabulous. It published June 1st.
I am still reading my Illustrated Sorcerer's Stone a chapter, sometimes two, a night. I didn't get to it at all yesterday. I adore the images.
It published June 13th.
The girls at THE BROKE AND THE BOOKISH are taking a well deserved summer break until the middle of August, so I have decided to make up my own Top Ten this week...
