I'm a bookworm of the highest caliber! If you see me, I'll probably be reading. There's nothing I love more than finding a good book, and then sharing it with the world!

Cuckoo Song - Frances Hardinge

I'm bored. So bored.

 

Things were getting slightly more interesting, and then it fell flat again. Triss isn't likable. She's spoiled and petulant. Penn isn't likable either, because she's so selfish. Plus there is so much going on, so much trying to fight for attention, that nothing makes sense. It's also really long, while being slow at the same time.

 

This is one of those books that is mobbed by 5 star reviews, but I just don't see the draw. I'm all for unreliable narrators, and mystery, but this book just didn't do it for me.

 

Moving on.
