I am on page 175 of 434. That is 40% of the way through the book.
Uprooted by Naomi Novik is one of my favorite books, so when I saw she was writing another book in the same vein I was beyond excited! I recieved a signed ARC at Comic Con last weekend! I lined up over an hour before her signing began and was the first in line (until I got cut because the workers screwed me but thats a story for another time)
Before reading Spinning Silver I wanted to re-read Uprooted (review to come) and read it in 2 days. I devoured Uprooted. Spinning Silver is only 13 pages longer than Uprooted but I have been reading it for 4 days and am only 40% of the way through.
I just can’t get into it. I like the characters and want to know what happens but I haven’t gotten sucked in. I’m bored and the book is just dragging along. I wouldn’t be upset if someone told me the ending so I wouldn’t have to finish it. I want to know how it ends but I don’t want to put in the time to fight through.
But at the same time I am still hoping it will get better – that I will get sucked in the same way Uprooted pulled me in. I will finish it, but it might take me a while. I haven’t given up hope completely!
