Finished Last Week:
Dark is the key word here. Dark, intense, upsetting – I seriously loved every minute of it. Simply stunning as it explores the deepest elements of the well of human emotion.
This one is an odd duck. It was nowhere near what I expected. Jo Baker definitely can turn a phrase, but this one is so harsh to the eye and ear that it leaves a reader emotionally numb. While this is done on purpose to mirror the main character’s experiences, it takes some fortitude to get through the story and will most likely turn off most potential readers.
Did Not Finish:
Beautifully written but did not keep my attention enough to entice me to finish it.
While it should be interesting, I found myself finding excuses not to read.
