Not Feeling It
It's slow paced. At 100+ pages all that's happened so far is she's married this really nice guy. I mean really nice. And just like a character announcing they 'have 2 days until retirement' you know some shit is going to go down. The protagonist, Alice, is too nice as well. She doesn't have much of a personality at this point (I think she's 15 or 16) but for some reason the royalty want to be her bff and give her horses and stuff. Her mom is a nutter. And there are seeeeeeccccrrreeeeets because her hubby keeps distracting her with shiny things whenever she asks questions. I'm getting annoyed with the two of them.
So I don't know. Is this book just not for me? Is this a DNF?
How long do you give a book before you quit it?
