First up, The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes. I remembers starting this one and not being able to get into it. But, I do want to try it again, so I will keep it on my list. If the next time I try the book I still find myself not meshing with it, I will kick it off the list. Looking at my friends list, I’m not seeing lots of good things review-wise for this book. There’s something about that cover that I just like….
Book two is The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman. And I am going to go ahead and take this off the list. I LOVE the movie Practical Magic. I read the book last Halloween season for the first time…and I didn’t like it. I was so excited when this prequel came out. But I think this series is not for me; since I didn’t enjoy the first book, I don’t see the point in trying this one.
Both of these books I’m kind meh on. Have you read either of them? What were your thoughts?
