I just wanted to track two of the books I tried to read recently but couldn't finish for whatever reason.
I thought this would be cool to read because I saw that it was considered a more adult Harry Potter and I needed something to read before the movie came out. But I was just not connecting with it. The magic was not interesting enough to me and I didn't like any of the characters.
Passion Play by Beth Bernobich
I won this through Goodreads' Firstreads program and I was super excited! But about fifty pages in, the main character was about to be raped and I just could not handle it. I will try to return to it another time when I'm in a better frame of mind but at the moment, it was too much for me.
