Fellowship Point: A Novel | Alice Elliott Dark

I just couldn't get into this one at all. While the writing is lovely, there are just so many uneeded sections that didn't really seem to the overall story and made it really long winded, wandering in a way, personally, could not keep me engaged. I would have loved more of Agnes, the independent, salty writer and her new young editor and maybe it's there but I was almost 40 % of the way through and wasn't compelled to keep going.

I have really planned on buying anything for myself yesterday, but when the B&N by your bus stop is closing, so everything is 40% off & you've got 15 minutes to wait ...

batsy Nice choice! Cranford is a delight. 6h

Jennifer is the new kid at middle school and steps to the beat of her own drummer. She has trouble fitting in; she believes in aliens, and thinks she can find them. Then she disappears…soft pick MG novel.

I really tried so hard to like this one.
55% of the way in and I just realized that I didn't actually care about any of the characters. I tried to listen on audiobook to just get through it, but it wasn't for me either.
The video game references were very fun. But like... nothing was happening.

dabbe I've heard polar reviews on this one; it seems to be a love/hate with not much of a like in-between. If I don't care about even one character, I can't read it, so thank you for that wise insight. 😊 20h
Cazxxx I gave up on this one too 18h
The.Great.Catsby @dabbe yeah. That's what's I've been noticing too. Maybe my expectations were too high? Idk. No one was all that endearing nor interesting to me. 57m
The.Great.Catsby @Cazxxx so glad it wasn't just me. I really wanted to finish it with it winning that Goodreads award, but I just really didn't care about it. 56m

I got impatient waiting for my library hold to come in on this one - so decided to use one of my Christmas gift cards. Lazy afternoon off reading and having a late lunch of yummy sushi. 🍣 #lunchbook

I‘m in, of course. I‘m planning to try to finish up Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin, The Blue Castle by L. M. Montgomery, and Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt, as well as start Get A Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert to make the jump to February! Whew! That looks like a lot, but I can do it!

Andrew65 Great to have you with us. Great plans for the Readathon. Good luck 😁 2d
TheAromaofBooks The Blue Castle is one of my all-time favorites ❤ 2d

I‘m going to have to sit with this book for a while before I can decide how I feel about it, but on the whole, I think I really liked it. The writing is beautiful and I really enjoyed hanging out with these characters.

SamAnne Has been on my TBR since it came out. Thanks for the review! 2d

Wedding spam. The cake was made local it was green and white the base layer had a marble look.
The actual ceremony was outside under the biggest tree ever I fell in love with the outside setting.
The next day we had a breakfast bbq in See Park it was just friendly and involving.
The lady herself looked stunning Mrs Rebecca Johnson 😍 ❤️
P.s I wore a dress 😘

Leftcoastzen Lovely 2d
