I'm throwing in the towel.
I like the story so far, I really do, but it's dragging. And I'm dragging my feet every time I have to pick it up again because of that. I feel like I've been reading forever and getting nowhere.
I fully admit this is my fault, not the fault of the book. Perhaps I'll go back to it at another time. Maybe then I'll find it more of a fun thing than a chore, which is how it's supposed to be.
*Thank you to NetGalley for the e-ARC of this book. If I do go back to it, I will be sure to post a review.*
