Hello and happy Friday. Today has been one of those seemingly hectic days that in reality have been super unproductive. Wow, this mood is oddly fitting since I’ll tell you about my latest DNF. Look, I don’t know if it’s a me-problem or if I’m getting sent books I don’t like or what, but lately I haven’t been having the best of luck when it comes to blog tours. Regardless, I’d like to thank NetGalley, the author and Algonquin for this opportunity.
I started this book on July 16th, 2020 and DNF’ed it July 18th. True, I wasn’t very patient, but I felt a slump coming and I wasn’t going to have one. From what I could figure out, this novel is divided into three parts, and each one is titled Edie plus a different last name. At first I thought this meant that each part was about a different Edie but no, I guess it’s the same woman at various stages of her life.
Call me whatever you want, but I found it unsettling that a man wrote a book in which there was a female main character, and yet it was not told in first person and really, the men had more prevalence than her. It’s like she was used as an excuse, although I wouldn’t know what for since I didn’t read much of it. Ultimately I DNF’ed this book because I found it boring and didn’t want to make a huge effort with my reading.
Tell me about cool books to read. I need your recommendations.
Love, Miss Camila
