Books I Did Not Finish
The Swans of Fifth Avenue
I couldn't get into it. I am sure it was a good book, but it couldn't keep my attention. The story lines were super confusing and hard to follow. Sorry.
I had to stop reading this book because it was just... I don't even know. I love the mention of Greek Gods in books but this one took it way over the top and confused the hell out of me. The plot was basically a girl, Legacy, stuck in a love triangle. Her childhood sweetheart finally asked her out but there is always the other guy who loves her. On Legacy's seventeenth birthday, her guardian told her that her mother was alive. She thought her parents died in a car crash. Also, her mother is a Greek Goddess. And now when Legacy turns eighteen, she will turn into a Goddess as well. Sure? There were too many dream sequences in this book that I didn't really care for. She dwelled too much on them. I understand they were part of the plot, but I got over them quickly. I realized this was a series and had to stop. I couldn't take much more of it. That's all.
When, At Last, He Found Me
I didn't finish this free book. I couldn't be bothered to pick it up and read the next page. I got as far as Seraphin graduating from school and going for lunch with her favourite teacher. She ends up getting abducted and her nephew or grandson (not too sure) ends up abducting Seraphin and saying she is in trouble. There was this whole scene of the teacher being able to talk to fish. I just could not read any further than that. Sorry.
Awakening - Book 1
I forced and forced and forced myself some more to read this book. I couldn't get through it. A couple pages in I wanted to stop, but I wanted to give this book a chance.
Ana lives and works in whistler. She doesn’t remember ever having a family and thinks they are all dead. (Odd) Three strangers come into town and Ana decided to go out with them and falls madly in love with Athen after he takes her dog sledding and then zip lining. Apparently they are immortals – children born of an angel father and a human mother. And that’s about where I stopped.
There was just something about the writing style that I didn’t like. It made me anxious and I totally couldn’t stand reading in Ana’s point of view. This whole book just turned me off. I do not recommend and I will not be reading the rest of the series. That is all.
Tales from the Glades of Ballymore
This is supposed to be a children's book. It was so boring. No child would sit through this. Ever!
