The Testing Guide (The Testing, #0.5)

The Testing Guide - Joelle Charbonneau This is a short story prequel, so I won’t be doing a full review for it.I don’t have much to say about this, so I’ll make it quick. Considering this is more like…an extra chapter or something than it is a prequel, there’s not much to go on. So I’ve given it a “meh” rating, because it was pretty well written, and it set up the book itself very nicely; but it wasn’t perfect, and because it was so short, it didn’t really draw me in all that much. It just wasn’t that interesting, and a little too vague for be engaging. However, it was decent writing–so I’m stuck in the middle.Overall, decent enough. Considering how short it is and the fact that it’s free, I’d say that it’s worth giving a read before reading The Testing.See it on my blog?
