Week Three #MyWIPMay2019

After months of having no motivation to put words on a page, I’m back!

One Camp NaNo has just ended, and another one is about to begin, and I won’t participate in either this year, so I’m taking the blog posts of this month to talk about my current WIP. I found a daily Instagram challenge by @vesselofink, but as I don’t have a dedicated book Instagram account and don’t want to do short blog posts every day, I’m going to try a weekly post and answer a bunch of the questions at once.

Finale by Stephanie Garber [REVIEW]

When I started to read this book, I put it down after the first 80 pages and sent a message to my friend to tell her that I felt like I was reading a fanfiction of the first two books. I think the author got too carried away with trying to please the fans: I was someone who wanted more Tella and Legend, but not this much.

It’s sad when a book doesn’t live up to your expectations, especially when you spend a year with it as your most anticipated book. If it was a standalone, this could have been great. But, when you remember that it’s the final book in a trilogy you loved every word of, it’s hard to ignore how it’s missing all the magic you put it on a pedestal for.

I wish I could give it a half star rating, because 3 stars is too low, but 4 stars is too high. I originally gave it 4, but I’m rounding down to 3 because that’s a better representation of my first reaction to the book. It’s almost painful for me to write this review because of how highly I think of the series.

This review has so many potential spoilers that I’m not going to tag them all, otherwise it will just look like a ‘fill in the blanks’.

(Not Quite) The Same Old Song by Lindsey Ouimet [REVIEW]

I received an eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Darcy’s life isn’t easy. She and her mom are barely scraping by when her brother steals their rent money for drugs. Darcy is forced to pawn her most prized possession: her guitar that had belonged to her dad. A few days later, Darcy is shocked to discover the pawn shop owner’s son Grey playing it at a gig with his band. Darcy hatches a plan to reunite with Darlene, while also getting closer to Grey.
