Reviews of speculative fiction, YA, middle grade, and graphic novels, along with stray thoughts, links, and pictures.
This is a book with a gorgeous cover and the kind of fourth wall breaking I normally like that is utterly failing to keep my interest. I'm not that far in, but given the amount of other books I keep picking up rather than continuing it, I think it's safe to put this one on the "abandoned" shelf.
Additional note: maybe this would change if I read further, but the author seems to be having a conversation about gender that doesn't actually have a point. Like, she's playing games with pronouns because it's stylish rather than because she has anything to say. Again, not that far in, so maybe it turns out brilliantly. But not for me.
