I've read 10% and I'm quitting.
Dear Sweet Filthy World - Caitlín R. Kiernan

 

I've been dragging my feet on this for two months and I've decided to throw in the towel. I can't bring myself to read any more solid walls of text.

 

"Great swaths of the rocky seafloor rising up to meet her beneath a carpet of calcified cyanobacteria and the branching lobes and solitary cups of archaeocyath sponges.There are knotted clusters formed by problematic chancellorids, an enigma to taxonomists, who must place all organisms in this box or that box; the chancellorids may be only sponges, or they may be slug like halkieriids protected inside their skins of star shaped, calcareous sclerites."

 

I wanted to like this so much, but I just can't get into it.

 

*Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the e-ARC, but since I did not finish, I do not feel it's fair for me to rate or review at this time.*

I've tried. I've tried really really hard to write seriously and make it seem like I'm not exactly crazy or anything because it's apocalyptic novel and the whole mood has to be dark. I've even written 10k words somewhat normally. But then I came to that one particular part where I had no idea where to go next, so I started writing parts that come in future and I ended up going back to my batshit-crazy kind of writing with a lot more cursing and stuff and suddenly I had a lot more fun and I was writing faster than before and I'm really really sorry to however's going to read that thing, because I've tried but I can't write in a tone that's not me so yeah. Batshit crazy it is.

Archangel's Legion - Nalini Singh

 

I made it through the first half. ZZzzzzzzz.... I must remain vigilant, awake and finish this book. It's finally starting to pick up time to come out of my semi coma state.
