I am vociferously passionate about good books. And I hate adverbs.
Putting this to rest, after 71%, read between October 2012 and January 2013, I can finally say that I am not going to finish this.
I'm glad I won it, mostly because I never win anything at all, ever, but also because that means I didn't pay for it. I'm sorry, this didn't work for me at all. It suffers from fanfiction syndrome, and I'm done.
In case you loved it and want to bash my head in for not loving it as much as you did, you might want to know that I also put books like How To Repair a Mechanical Heart, and The Hunger Games, and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in my DNF-shelf.
It is obvious that we do not have the same taste in books. (And those were books I had actually paid good money for, not just winning them).
See, this book needed editing so bad, and the publishing house simply does not seem to provide that kind of professional service.
On to the next book, ever searching for the perfect wording.
