Books I have DNF'd recently....

Morning Star - Pierce Brown Pride and Prometheus - John Kessel How to Stop Time - Matt Haig

I put these books down recently.


Morning Star - This book had the characters eating a bucket of cockroaches and raw snakes and nonsense as some initiation.  No. Just No. My stomach never recovered. I just Wiki'd the ending and we're good. It's been real Pierce Brown.


Pride and Prometheus - I'm not going to discourage anyone from reading this - the Pride and Prejudice parts were good. The Frankenstein parts bored me. It could just be me.


How to Stop Time- Just a bad fit - it's smart sci-fi about a man who never ages and is part of some order who polices them and protects their secret. He is told never to fall in love. Of course, he does.  It will probably be a hit but I found it depressing and kept wishing it would get to the point. It rambled a lot.


I received Pride and Prometheus and How to Stop Time free in exchange for an honest review.
