When I am into a book, I will fly right through it in a day or two. When a book decides to start off with a drawn out, somewhat frustrating story I find I lose interest. I almost always force my way through those long drawn out beginnings in hopes of what will hopefully follow. I am at one of those points right now. I am reading The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley and I am struggling. I am well past the 100 page mark and I am still hoping to be pulled in..... soon please. I chose this book as I just read A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness and the readers that liked A Discovery of Witches on amazon.com also apparently loved The Winter Sea. There must be something in this book, please let me find it soon.
I loved A Discovery of Witches... it was one of those books that I just did not want to end. Well it didn't end exactly, it is part of a trilogy... the next book from which will be released in 2012.... seriously... that just isn't fair!
When I get into situations like this I usually go back to re-read a book after a disappointing book so that I know I will at least love what I am reading. Do you ever do this or am I on my own?
Re-reading a book is just so comforting.... I can't wait to read my favourites to our girls.
Well it is supposed to rain all weekend so tomorrow I will hunker down and I will give this book another chance.
