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.

Through the Ever Night

Through the Ever Night - Veronica Rossi

Well. That was a disappointment.

My copy of the book is 341 pages long, and I feel like nothing much happened. This book felt like filler. It felt like omg this has to be a trilogy because trilogies are all the rage. That's what this book felt like.

 

This book could have been summed up in much less pages, and without trying to introducing all the romance drama which I found myself more annoyed with than anything. Though I must say it would have been far more interesting if Liv had fallen in love with Sable, for real instead of just pretending for the sake of the Tides. I don't know. I would have been more impressed if it actually hadn't been a farce all along.

 

And the introduction of Kirra, just to stir up drama on the Tides end and make it more interesting? Ugh. Basically to make the filler happen.

 

I am so, so disappointed. I loved the first book. Loved it. And now I find myself questioning even that--would I like that book as much if I read it now?

 

So, I still have Into the Still Blue to read and I think I'm going to put it off for awhile. :/
