While I don’t really like not finishing books from NetGalley, I’ve been really busy with university and I don’t get much time to read, so I don’t want to waste the little time I have reading things I’m not that interested in. It’s not that it is a bad book, it is just not for me.
I found the pacing to be really slow. My kindle says I got to about 46%, and nothing had really happened at all. It was just so slow and unnecessarily long. At 500 pages, there were bits that weren’t necessary in the first half. I just didn’t want to waste my time reading 200+ pages when I was so disinterested in the story or the characters.The characters weren’t bad, they just weren’t great either. They weren’t memorable or funny, and to be fair a bit cliché. I mean Dana is like this badass girl who rides a motorbike with a leather jacket and snarky personality. There was little depth to the characters, or originality. There just wasn’t anything to stand out, and that is one of the reasons I gave up on this read.
Overall, not a book I would personally recommend.
MY RATING: ★★☆☆☆
