Monstrous Beauty - Elizabeth Fama

Unfortunately, though it came highly recommended and I adore Elizabeth Fama's personality, I'm not really enjoying this one at all.


I feel very bored with the writing and the story, and I'm just waiting and waiting and waiting for it to pick it. It's taken me five days to just get this far, which is unusual for me. Granted, I do have a lot of schoolwork this semester, but I'm been finding things to do in place of my usual reading time. The only time I really pick it up is right before bed, and that's just because I feel the need to read a few chapters before I go to sleep--and that's true of any book I read.


Here's to hoping it picks up for me! I really want to like this book.
