I love books.


Heartless - Anne Elisabeth Stengl I think I got this as a free Kindle book. I started it once or twice, and it didn't quite grab me. I'm trying to read things that I've already got, and not look for new, so I kept pushing through. There was a lot to like, the world-building was interesting at first, very fairy-tale-ish. At the same time, though, I find myself wondering why I bothered. A lot of the plot was really convoluted and confusing, and the heroine wasn't really all that likeable. The hero just sort of showed up exactly when we needed him, and I felt almost no connection to him, I didn't really care if he won the girl and slayed the dragon or not. The things that happened to her, were on a slow build, and then suddenly, wham. I'm still not entirely sure I know what happened. There were a lot of loose ends, too, which I guess were on purpose, to set up the next book(s) in the series. I'm not going to bother. More than enough to read....
