Wed, 4 km bike, 30 min walk
Thu, 1 h walk, 4 km bike
Fri, 1.20 h walk

Got back into things, but boo, zumba was cancelled on Thu cos it was, whatever Thu is called, and the yoga teacher was sick on Tue :/


DNF time


I tried my best, I loved book 1. But this one was so BORING. Nothing happened. She went to a place, found a halfie. Drama
She went to another place, halfie, drama.
She went, yes you see my point.
Read a review to see spoilers. Oh, that was the end? F it. I am glad I dnf:ed.


I did not like it, and then the rape came. I do not need that as a plot device. 

Also this was to be UF, this felt very pnr from the little I read. And we all know I am quite over that. I guess she hooked up with vamp guy at the end and lala forgot her horrid experience.

No.


I started reading and was all this is so boring! DNF
Then I read the blurb, and thought, fine I will push through a bit. But even when she came to the fantasy land I was all sigh, she is rather stupid, they are rather stupid. Why bother.

  7. Again with the insane amount of exercising! Well done *applause, applause* Don't know the last two books, but Shadow Scale...hm. I think you're naturally drawn to books with energetic plots, and the Seraphina series is all about the writing. I know lots of people who couldn't take to Maggie Stiefvater for the same reason. I think it can be a challenge, drawing enjoyment in a book from the crafting of the phrases. Marcel Proust, for instance, in A la recherche du temps perdu has phrases that are one page long. It takes a lot of time to get through a page :) But many people find it rewarding. Loving your thoughts and take-no-prisoners attitude though :) You keep me on my toes!

    1. I loved Seraphina! It was so good, but damn I was soooo bored here.

      And I love writing and language, but here, nothing to enjoy. Nothing to get lost in. I can't just have words, cos yes I need a story too

  12. Your DNF of Shadow Scale is so sad, but you're the second person I know who did. Not looking optimistic for when I'm going to read it soon, but here's still hoping! :)
