Spinning Silver
Spinning Silver - Naomi Novik

I am just going to admit defeat. This book is so dull it's making me dread it. The characters are much more likeable than in Uprooted. But I still don't like them. So I just sold the book to Half Price while I was there this weekend and I'm returning the audiobook. I'm giving up on Novik. While the worlds are unique, everything else is just no. Dense, wordy, boring. At times, down right stupid. Next.

Well, I'm not disliking this. It seems a lot better than Uprooted. But it's still too early to pass judgment.

This is the third time I have attempted this book. Maybe this time will take.

December To-Read: The Final Push of the Year
Children of Blood and Bone: The OrÏsha Legacy (Children of OrÏsha) - Tomi Adeyemi
The Broken Girls - Simone St. James
Ghosted - Rosie Walsh
Spinning Silver - Naomi Novik
Red Clocks: A Novel - Leni Zumas
The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock - Imogen Hermes Gowar
Circe - Madeline Miller

I didn't read very much of my November TBR. I was in a slump and just read whatever I wanted to keep myself moving. I did read 4 books....or was it 5? I can't remember. Anyway....

 

This month I will mostly dedicate myself to my Book of the Month pile, with the exception of Children of Blood and Bone which I am so excited to get to. I am waiting on an audiobook of Spinning Silver to drop from Libby. And there are more BOM books than I have listed here, but they aren't coming up in the BL database. The Lies We Told, The Air You Breathe, and Small Country. I'm hoping to make a big final push this year like I did last December. We shall see.

 

Also, yesterday was my birthday! I got a bread maker. And some money from my dad so I ordered a 23andme kit to finally put my ancestry to rest. Plus I preordered Soul of the Dragon which we Power Ranger fans call Old Man Tommy. Then I took my son to our neighborhood diner for Catfish Friday. And I got myself a birthday cake.

 

 

Anyway, on to the holidays!

If this is anything like Uprooted, I will definitely need this audiobook. I sure hope this isn't as dense and frustrating as that book. If it is, I will just move back to Angel.
