Bout of Books 26: Day 2 & 3 Update


BOUT OF BOOKS 26: DAY 2 UPDATE

      So yesterday was an okay reading day for me. I had to work, so I didn't get as much reading done as I did for Day 1. I got to about the halfway done mark in Sorcery of Thorns after skyping my parents and hanging out with my roommate. Not as much has happened as I feel like should have happened. As I mentioned before, the pacing is super weird as is the characterization. Sometimes the things and thoughts that happen seem out of place or unnecessary. 


      I only got about 15 minutes worth of reading done on the bus today because I had to run a lot of errands and pack for my cruise. As expected, not much happened in those 15 minutes, I think I read maybe 3 chapters. I'm starting to feel like maybe the hype for this book was blown a little out of proportions, or maybe I'm too critical of the book. For the most part, I like the setting, and I really like Nathaniel and Silas, but the world building and overall plot could be better and Elisabeth isn't a main character that I find myself drawn to. She's very vanilla to me. Maybe some shit will pop off in the 2nd part of the book that will win me over.


      So those are my updates for yesterday and today. For those of you who were unaware, today mark's The Nerdgirl Review's 5th anniversary!!! So head on over to my anniversary post for a chance to win 3 books of your choice from Book Depository. Just click here! Tomorrow I head to my mom's place for 2 days before the cruise, but she doesn't have Internet, so I'm going to do my best to post, but if not, I should be back this weekend.
