Books We Didn't Finish - July edition

Witch's Kiss: This had great promise with the reversed Sleeping Beauty plot.  But it was really dull with unlikable characters.  The backstory (fairy tale) part was OK, but not enough to keep my interest to see how it all ended.  Finding out it was the first in a trilogy made me give up. I knew I wouldn't finish out the series, so gave up about 60% in.

The Doll Funeral:  I found this book really confusing and disjointed.  I had really no idea what was going on through most of the parts I read.  The child abuse scenes were uncomfortable and made me put the book down. It wasn't what I was expecting.

Baby Teeth:  I was so excited to read this book.  I was sent an ARC from the publisher and with all of the hype leading up to the release date, I was hoping for something truly thrilling.  I ended up stopping at about 40%.  I hated the characters.  I got tired of the gas lighting by Hannah.  Tired of Alex not believing that Hannah is horrible to Suzette when he's not around.  I didn't realize that Hannah was only 7 years old when I read the synopsis.  Gifted or not, she was too young to believe she was a psychopath and wanted to kill her mother.  Especially since she suffered no abuse from her parents.  There are a lot of mixed reviews for this debut.  I fall on the "no thanks" side.

Baby Teeth was a strange book! I finished it, just because I wanted to see what happened.
