The Power (to put me to sleep) DNF at 70 pages
The Power - Naomi Alderman

This is just not entertaining to me. I have been trying so hard to enjoy this, but it's mediocre at best. I must have much different taste than most of America.

Emma in the Night (needs a flashlight)
Emma in the Night - Wendy Walker

...to find her way thru this complicated mess.

 

I was tempted to lower my rating to 2 stars, but I decided I would leave it at 3. I did enjoy it...mostly. It only had 1 grammatical error. And I finished it within 3 days. So, 3 stars.

 

Now, for the negatives: poorly written. Convoluted. Couldn't follow some of the characters' trains of thought. The switching between 1st and 3rd person. And even at the end I couldn't fully tell what had really happened to some of the story. 

 

Emma was a nightmare sister. Cass became one herself, so I couldn't relate to her or feel sympathy. And she was written to be far too intelligent for a teenager. The side characters were extremes: polarizingly blind and stupid or too involved and conveniently similar to Cass. 

 

I only finished this because I genuinely wanted to know what happened to Emma, the Pratts, and Rick. The curveball at the end was ridiculous. 

 

The book wasn't all bad. It was just juvenile and not original. It was more like an average episode of SVU.

The Power - Naomi Alderman

Amazon says this book was one their best sellers of 2017. So far, I'm meh. I don't feel one way or another about it. I hate when that happens, and it happens a lot to me. I tend to be the unpopular opinion penguin of best seller lists. What others rave about, I tend to dislike.

A Month to Publiication Day

Exactly one month today "The Haunting of Dove Cote House" will be published.

Right now I'm not exactly sure how I feel about that to be honest.

I mean a lot of people dream of seeing their book in print and I'm going to be doing that soon.

And yes I like so many others have dreamt of this moment.

So why am I not jumping up and down with joy celebrating?

Quite simply because I am still going through my manuscript before handing it over to the company that is self-publishing it for me.

My one thought right now is to get that work done and hand it over.

Once I've done that I'm certain I will experience not only a sense of relief, but also a nervous expectation as I count down the day until the book becomes available to all. 

The day my life long dream finally becomes a reality.
