I just started re-reading The Name of the Wind so that I can finally move on to the second book. For some reason, I keep moving on to other books. I did the same thing with Anthony Ryan's Raven's Shadow trilogy. Loved the first book and then stopped with the series.
I got a copy from Netgalley. I started last night and I am now stuck at 3%. I see that it's $13.99 on Amazon for the e book. Geez. The difference between chapter 1 and chapter 2 is like night and day. It seems like they were written by two different people. I refuse to not finish it.
I'm 2% into Snakewood by debut author Adrian Selby. I was sort of spooked by all of the DNF's posted but the blurb pulled me in. Boy, am I struggling to continue. This writing style takes some getting used to. I saw a couple of reviewers say that it gets better, so I will plod on. Wish me luck.
