    DNFAhhhh that dreaded DNF.I honestly can t think of the last book I didn t finish Even on the worst of books I try not to quit in the middle But sometimes you just can t help it I mean think about it What s worse Cutting your losses when you seem to not connect in any way or forcing yourself to read through every Single Page I had the highest of expectations for this story when I received the ARC and a blog tour invite this premise, as mentioned below in some of my comments, is actually DNFAhhhh that dreaded DNF.I honestly can t think of the last book I didn t finish Even on the worst of books I try not to quit in the middle But sometimes you just can t help it I mean think about it What s worse Cutting your losses when you seem to not connect in any way or forcing yourself to read through every Single Page I had the highest of expectations for this story when I received the ARC and a blog tour invite this premise, as mentioned below in some of my comments, is actually a very hard story to tackle So, of course, when one is presented in front of you that seems like it COULD be absolutely amazing, you take the chance Well after this one I think I ll just trust my instincts.This really isn t the worst ARC I ve ever gotten by any stretch of the imagination, but it was boring enough that I finally just lost any interest in trying I have like..NO time to read or review any, so when I have the time, I refuse to waste it on a story that seems like it was barely looked over or edited Chapters that were sometimes a half page long or so it seemed made it impossible to connect with any one character, and then when you did get an extra page or two for the chapter, the writing was so stilted that you almost felt as if you were a dog, tilting your head this way and that with a confused, furrowed brow At one point I was all the way through a page before I was even skimming and was like what even happened I already had forgotten I can t say this book wouldn t be better had I been in the mood and perhaps forced myself to really try to connect with what was being said, but in this stage of my reading life, knowing what I love and like to read, should I really have to force myself to get through chapters that are already short to begin with As for the rest of my problems, why even bother I can t even tell you what percent I got to, but I know it wasn t worthy of a normally18 paragraph Chelsea review So, instead, I will just list my dislikes and let you decide if these, too, are your turn offs Short, choppy writing No flow whatsoever Tiny chapters Vapid female lead Lack of a build up Lack of a good background stupid convos INSTA LOVE Fuck knows what else I missed skimmingEven now I can t diss the main male lead who was partly to blame I have issues guys I really do But maybe the real issue here is that I didn t give this author or this story long enough I feel bad, honestly, but when you just don t connect with a book, you just don t connect It already has some wonderful ratings, so perhaps it s just me Maybe give it a chance and see what you think.I just couldn t be bothered Forof my reviews, please visit
