So Top Ten Tuesday is held over at That Artsy Reader Girl, where every week bloggers list their top 10 being asked about. This week’s post is a freebie, a topic of our own choosing, so here’s my topic: those audiobooks I will probably never finish listening to
By Joe Hill, I think I managed to get this as a freebie, but never finished. I can’t remember why, and I forgot I even had it tbh.
By accounts from the blurb, I should like this story of a former FBI agent pulled back into her past and a case that never let her. But something just didn’t work for me, and I can’t even remember what it was exactly.
I believed the hype, and couldn’t stand the book. I’m still half convinced I’ll be going back to this because it’s Jane Harper, and The Dry was magnificent. Sighs. But not this one.
A Margaret Atwood comic book, that was a little bit too quirky for my tastes.
Brilliant blurb, but the narration was bad. BADDDDDD. I just couldn’t.
A Harlan Coben novel, that actually was really good, so I think this one might’ve been me. *shrugs* I’m moody, what can I say.
I wanted to like this so much, but it just didn’t work for me. Pacing I think — and way too many characters getting a voice, literally.
Pacing here is what got me… but still it’s good. Maybe I should try the book? I don’t know. From a fast-paced excellent beginning, things slowed right down and I got so bored.
