I dislike namedropping/brand-dropping. So distracting.

Joyousreads said...

Boo, on Six of Crows. I feel like it's the only Bardugo novel I genuinely liked. That's unfortunate.

Sullivan McPig said...

I'm still a little tempted to buy Six of Crows just for that cover.

Sorry to hear about Six of Crows! I didn't think it was as amazing as the hype made it to be, but I guess I still had a good time with it.

I don't think any of those are for me, either.

Lola said...

I know right?? So many are loving Six of Crows. I think it's good, but not incredible :P

Mystica said...

Happens to us all!

Christy LoveOfBooks said...

Oh no, Six of Crows. I hoped to read that soon. Hope my experience is better. *crosses fingers*

Blodeuedd said...

I only read like 20 pages but it was everywhere!

Blodeuedd said...

I just could not, and I tried soooo hard

Blodeuedd said...

Lol

Blodeuedd said...

I just could not get into it, it was so dull

Blodeuedd said...

I do think so too

Blodeuedd said...

Blodeuedd said...

I know! Sigh

Keertana said...

Nooo, I love Six of Crows! But I didn't think it was slow at all, so I think maybe Bardugo's style is just for me and it maybe didn't work out for you. Sorry to hear it but I hope you find some books you can get through soon!

I hate constant name dropping. Boo!

Anachronist said...

DNFs - my favourite reviews, especially with Luci around!

Carole Rae said...

MEOW MEOW!

Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer said...

I have Six of Crows on audio...oh no. Reshuffles to bottom of player list.

Melissas Eclectic Bookshelf said...

I haven't finished Bardugo's 1st series yet, but Six of Crows did seem to have more hype than it could ever live up to...

Lover Of Romance said...

I just can't stand it when a book is boring----its the worst.

Lisa (@TenaciousReader) said...

I feel your pain with Six of Crows.

Sophia Rose said...

I had a couple this week that were 'no can do's, too. Sometimes it's just best to set it down and move on. Huh, don't think I've read one that had lots of name-dropping, but I can see how that would get old.

Blodeuedd said...

Yes, maybe her style just is not for me

Blodeuedd said...

It was so over the top

Blodeuedd said...

Hehe

Blodeuedd said...

:)

Blodeuedd said...

On audio it would be soooo slow..or maybe not

Blodeuedd said...

That it did

Blodeuedd said...

SO the worst

Blodeuedd said...

Sigh

Blodeuedd said...

Yes move on is the best :)

Karen said...

I knew you would hate SoC lol

Melanie Simmons (mlsimmons) said...

I've thought about Six of Crows, but not hard. I'm not a fan of name dropping either. J.R. Ward does it a lot. It became a joke, Get the brands of t-shirts and underwear, but I joked that I couldn't go on because I didn't know what brand of jeans he was wearing. LOL

Chris said...

Life is far too short to read books we don't like.

Blodeuedd said...

You did warn me

Blodeuedd said...

Oh she sure did the namedropping haaaard. It 's just too much sometimes, it was like, I want to know about her, not what she is wearing

Blodeuedd said...

True

Jen Twimom said...

Haha. I want to see Luci eating the DNF's!

I hate when a book is overloaded with pop culture references or name/brand dropping. Annoying!!

Blodeuedd said...

Interesting...I must see what I can do ;)

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Maybe to much love going around for the first book? Ugh. Thanks for sharing about the DNFs. :)

Blodeuedd said...

So much love
