No chemistry. No spark.
Kind of like a really bad first date.
I’ve had a few books like that. Storm Front by Jim Butcher. The Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier. The King Must Die by Mary Renault. Insurgent by Veronica Roth.
I wanted to love all of them–looked forward to them so much and then they fell flat.
Has this ever happened to you? What book was it?
