Books We Didn't Finish November Edition
The Wonder. Boring. That is about all I can say for it. I was falling asleep listening to it. I had no interest in finding out if the girl was a miracle or not.
Picture Me Gone: I'm not sure if this was supposed to be a YA or middle grade novel. The main character is 12, but she sounds like that is 20. It's supposed to be about a father and daughter who search for his missing friend. But the story kept going off on tangents about Mila and her ex-best friend. I got about 25% in and abandoned it.
The Sleeper and the Spindle: I love Neil Gaiman. This book was originally published as a YA fairy tale book with illustrations. The audiobook is only an hour long and I didn't last 10 minutes. I had no idea what was going on. This might be one that you need the pictures to help create the atmosphere for the story.
Heartless: I really makes me sad to say that this one was a DNF. I loved the Lunar Chronicles. I guess I was hoping for more of a story like that with Heartless. I didn't even mind that it was likely to have a sad ending. But, the writing was juvenile and the characters were ridiculous. And it was boring as heck.
