Do you read books that require you to have a dictionary in reach to constantly look up new words? I do.
This book is filled with so many of those moments where I think the storyline is so plainly written that I don't need to look up a word because I can make inferences based off of a characters reaction. Of course most of the time I'm wrong and when I do look up a word after already making my assumptions about Wharton's intentions, it makes her writing so much more enjoyable and every description so much more poignant.
I think I've written about this experience before but I just want to reiterate this warning because this book could be a hard read.
I was hoping that by now I would report back to say that I finished the book but I haven't.
I haven't even picked up the book in a while because I'm honestly not happy with the direction of the story so far. I know for sure that the story will end horribly and I just want to keep the hope of something positive happening alive, you know?
Have you read this book before? Did you decide to take a break too because you can't stand the negativity and only need positive vibes in your life?
Haha I will finish the book though because I need to know how it ends. Still, I was going to give the book an amazing rating. But now ... we'll see how generous I feel when the time actually comes. The rest is just so hard to push through.
It's painful to read and learn more about Lily's downfall. So I've been searching for TV shows and anime and I think I might have stumbled on a good show. I won't recommend it yet but look out for the post soon.
I think if you're like me and you're struggling to push through the last bits of a book, I recommend taking it one day at a time and reading at the pace you feel comfortable at. That way it doesn't feel like work finishing the book.
Hey, they call me the lazzy reader for a reason :P
Comment below and tell me your thoughts on the book or how your life is going. I'm curious to know, so don't be stingy with your thoughts!
