I had to. The premise of the book was interesting but I couldn‘t get past the writing, which was simplistic at best and the “secret”, which is mentioned in the first chapter, is merely a rumour. I usually love #wwii #historicalfiction, but this one I couldn‘t get beyond 20% of the book. I‘m equally frustrated because I paid over $20 CDN for my copy. #2022 #fiction #bailed Was my #bookspin book for February

CarolynM I hate it when that happens😫 Hope you like your next book 7mo
TheAromaofBooks So frustrating!!! Sorry this one was a bust!! 7mo
melissajayne @TheAromaofBooks It‘s why I generally borrow my books from the library instead of buying them. And I had hoped it would be better. 7mo

Half way through and unfortunately more than slightly bored. A slow fire indeed! I did enjoy her first two books though. I rather enjoy the amazing view of shallow Caribbean waters 💕 #paulahawking #aslowfireburning #bahamas #vacation #bailed #notforme

SRWCF That view is amazing!!! 9mo
TheBee @SRWCF yes it‘s a magical place 💕 #outisland of the #bahamas 9mo

I really wanted to like this. The premise of taking magical doorways to escape a war torn home sounded great but I just couldn‘t finish it. It felt like not much happened. His voice was great but it felt like he went on a lot of tangents. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Made it to 40% on the #audiobook. #bailed

Alfoster Rats! Have this but now not excited to read!😢 1y
BookishBelle @Alfoster A lot of other people loved it. I believe I am in the minority here with my opinion. You may still like it. 1y
Alfoster Ok, thanks! I‘ll let you know!🤞 1y

batsy I bailed on this too! It seems wrong to say it but the tone felt too twee for such a serious theme. 1y
kellyann28 I bailed on this also. I got just a few chapters before I decide the writing style was not for me! 1y
BookishBelle @batsy @kellyann28 I‘m glad I‘m not the only one! 1y

Got about halfway through this one and just lost interest. Might try again someday, but not feeling it right now. 🤷🏻‍♀️ #dnf #bailed

bibliobliss Yes!! 1y
SeaToSkyes @bibliobliss did you have the same problem? Lol 😆 1y
CoverToCoverGirl Yes, indeed it is! I do love this series but the first one is the one I least liked. (edited) 1y
SeaToSkyes @CoverToCoverGirl yes! I've heard other people say you can almost skip this one entirely lol 1y

It's not you, it's me. This is not a bad book, but I really wasn't vibing with it, guess that's what happens when you pick a book based on its cover. 😅 Valetine's day is the day to give love, and I gave myself love by quitting a book that I didn't find interesting. 😄😄

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Your bookmark is gorgeous too! 😍 Some of the best self love decisions I‘ve made have been to quit a book. 😅 2y
zezeki @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Thank you, I made it recently with water colours after more than decade of not using them. 😅😄 2y
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm It looks like sea foam! So lovely! You‘re very talented! Water colors are not my forte! 😅 2y
zezeki @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Thank you for your kind words, but this was made using some simple tricks. I'd recommend you check out @makoccinos on YouTube, she does tutorials on watercolours, she makes it seem so simple and easy. 😄 2y
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm You‘re very welcome. Thank you, I will check her out. 👍 2y

Nope 😕 the style of writing feels childish and patronising. There is no flair or intelligence in the writing, I expected more from Mr Fry. Into the DNF bucket you go 👎

Well...this isn t my kind of book. It's not badly written I was just bored and life is too short to be stuck reading a book I couldn't get into or find myself caring what happened next. I think this is a case of historical fiction mismatch.

🎧 #currentlylistening to this #audiobook after a series of books that I #bailed on.

QuietlyLaura I want to read this! I thought The Bookish Life Of Nina Hill was so good! ☺️ 3y
marleed I hope you like this one! 3y
ShyBookOwl I bailed on a few recently too. I hope this one is a win for you! 3y
KMM I read this a couple months ago and let me tell you, I wanted to go out and create a garden, lol 3y
Chelleo @KMM Yassss! And I‘m not sure that‘s a good idea at all!! Would love to have my crew come and build a garden in my yard though! Welcome to Litsy! 3y

This book sounded so so good. Tried reading the book,listening to the audio version,-nothing worked for me. Maybe it‘s my mood, attention span, time- whatever. Just not for me right now, so back to the library it goes!

I was hoping for humor, but instead I‘m just bored.

wanderinglynn That‘s unfortunate. You‘d think she‘d be funny in her own book. 3y
AutumnRLS I find her super interesting in theory, but not so much in reality. 3y
Eggs She was hilarious as a young comedian! But in old age, not so much-just pure snark 3y
Clwojick @Eggs agreed! Very snarky! 😂 (edited) 3y
