So, I have hit what for me as a reader is a big pain in the butt. I am chugging along, reading Kelley Armstrong‘s Women of the Otherworld series (which I have really been enjoying), and then I hit a dud. Well, maybe dud is overstating things, but Haunted just isn’t doing it for me. It is the fifth book of the series, with the first two featuring the werewolves Elena and Clayton, and the next two featuring witch Paige Winterbourne. This time around, it is the, uh, ghost? spirit? dearly departed? Eve. So, total change in storyline, not much interaction with any existing characters (since only one can actually see or hear her), and lots of ghost-y stuff. Not feeling it.
Anyways, now the painful part…drag myself through it, or give up and move on? I don’t usually surrender easily, but I have been trying to get through this sucker for close to two weeks now and it just isn’t happening. But to NOT finish means perhaps missing details that will affect the rest of the series.
