Reading a Thousand Lives

I'm a goodreads refugee. I read horror, classics, literary, science fiction, YA, weird, regency romances, historical fiction, history, science, fantasy and random bits and pieces of every genre, it seems like. I don't do as much reading and reviewing as I used to, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.

Descent into Dust - Jacqueline Lepore I suddenly got to thinking about how many books I have in my tbr pile, how it's more than I'll probably ever read in my lifetime, and then I thought, why am I reading this book that I'm struggling through? Sure it has some elements that I like, but overall it was not an enjoyable experience, effort that I could have been putting elsewhere. My main complaint about this novel is the terribly stilted dialogue, my goodness. Just because it's a historical novel doesn't mean the dialogue has to be stiff!
