Did Not Finish!
Borrowed from my library’s OverDrive catalog. No spoilers
I have been wanting to read this book for a really long time, and when my library had it on OverDrive I placed a hold and waited. I went in blind and virtually knew nothing about the plot or characters, I didn’t even follow the author on social media!
As soon as I started reading it I got Hunger Games vibes. Mare and Kilorn reminded me so much of Katniss and Gale it was frightening. As the book progressed I just wasn’t clicking with the characters and couldn’t find anything I liked about this book that was worthy of the buzz.
I kept reading and eventually I gave up because this book just wasn’t for me. I especially disliked the names of the characters, they sounded made up and ridiculous. I really wish I liked this book, but I didn’t and I don’t think I’ll give it another go anytime soon.
