This Sunday Post is a tad bit late because of this book...
I absolutely hated the story in the beginning. In fact here is my first Goodreads status...
"There is a difference between the Maggie Stiefvater lyrical detailed description of a character's environment and gross prolixity of minutiae. There is a finesse to it which this author does not have. It is like he was trying too hard to make this story hip. I was trimming my son's hair, so I had switched the eARC to text-to-speech, and he was cracking up at how hokey the characters' conversational witticisms were. Ugh."
I think this is the only book I have ever read that, after I loathed a good chunk of it, thought the rest of the book more than made up for its failings and still gave it a solid five. It is YA Contemporary, by the way, so it is even more miraculous that I let that undesirable 1/5 of the book go unpunished. Ha ha. Anyway, I was reading instead of doing my post draft, and when I woke up I continued to read until I was finished.
I tell you about my problem with A CURIOUS TALE OF THE IN-BETWEEN.
WEDNESDAY'S WEIRD WORD...
You might be surprised about what I do in my spare time.
I was over the moon when I saw I had been approved for an eARC of Victoria Schwab's newest YA offering, THIS SAVAGE SONG!
I had nary a clue about the 50 review perks on Amazon!
