I don’t leave a book unfinished often. Even if I hate a book, sometimes I’ll keep reading to see if it gets any better, or to make sure nothing good happens so I can make fun of it (yes, I am a terrible person). There are other times, though, when I’m just not in the mood, it’s boring, etc. I am officially adopting Lori of Pure Imagination’s feature, Book Breakups, so I can nobly and (fairly) guiltlessly stop reading a book.
I really wanted to like When We Wake. Karen Healey’s Guardian of the Dead was really unique and intriguing, so naturally I was excited to hear about her 2013 release. Sadly, When We Wake wasn’t even half as good as Guardian of the Dead. I just felt like I’d read the story before and heard the voice one too many times, and the story was too slow for me. I didn’t care that much about Tegan, and the fact that this book will be the first in a series didn’t make me want to continue it either. I am really sick of series and trilogies. But more on that later. For now, When We Wake, we must part ways.
