Book Reviews: Ghoster by Jason Arnopp & An Illusion of Thieves by Cate Glass

With the amount of books I want to read these days, I don’t have time to read books that I’m not enjoying. The big problems for the books below is that I either couldn’t connect to the characters or the pace was too slow for me. The crux of these problems though is that they are very subjective, so I’m not condemning the books below and I did find redeeming qualities to them — just not enough for me to keep reading.

Reviews: The Toll by Cherie Priest & How to Hack a Heartbreak by Kristin Rockaway — I really did try to like them…

With the amount of books I want to read these days, I don’t have time to read books that I’m not enjoying. My biggest problem is that I need to feel involved with the characters — somehow connect with them. So, while I might be able to sit through a book without connecting with the characters, I usually just don’t want to — and that’s the crux of the two books I’ll be reviewing a bit more in-depth below. They aren’t horrible books, I totally could get through them if I had to or had nothing else to read, but knowing I have other things to read, I just don’t want to.
