I started reading Wither by Lauren DeStefano, and I am not sure how I feel about it yet. I am extremely interested in the events taking place in the story, but I can’t connect with any of the characters. They are all cold and the narrative is spare and emotionless. While I liked that in Matched, I don’t like it so much here.
“I don’t trust him. I imagine Cecily being rolled through the basement on a gurney, screaming in agony as the baby is born dead, and Vaughn going to work dissecting it for an antidote. “
It is a fast read, and I am having a hard time putting it down, despite my reservations.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
