Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Billy of Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Reader that runs from Friday to Thursday in which bloggers answer a book-related prompt. It’s a great way to provide some insight into yourself and introduce yourself to some great new blogs.
What was the last book you started to read but couldn’t finish?
My last DNF was Beyond the Ruby Veil by Mara Fitzgerald.
I really wanted to love this book. The MC is a chaotic lesbian thrust into the position of antihero. Emanuela is written to be an unlikeable character, but unfortunately that’s all she is. She’s not even unlikeable in a well-written, interesting way like Rin from The Poppy War. She’s just mean— including to her so-called best friend!
While the story itself is decent, I just couldn’t keep reading about a main character I hated so much. Everyone else seems to love this book, though, so maybe I’ll give it another chance someday. But today is not that day.
What was the last book you couldn’t finish and why? Tell me about it in the comments!
