I can only remember one book which I've ever given up on (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo if you're interested) but if I were in the habit of putting a book down when I couldn't get in to it, I'd have definitely done so with this one.
Everything Love Is is Claire King's second novel. I read her first book, The Night Rainbow, back in 2013 and I really enjoyed it but I'm sorry to say that I found this latest offering quite tedious, I found myself not wanting to read as it was so hard going. I was confused as to who was telling the story and the toing and froing in time had me muddled too. The story just didn't grab my attention until the very end.
I really enjoyed the last quarter of the book once the story seemed to take off, it's just a shame that it didn't get going much sooner. This last section of the book was back to Claire King's beautiful style of writing and I found myself wishing that it had grabbed me from the beginning rather than just as the book was going to end.
I've read some fantastic reviews of the book so I don't think everyone feels the same way as I do about it, which is the same with most books, we all enjoy different things, this one just didn't do it for me.
If you want to know what else I've been reading lately, you can find a list in the sidebar. This shows all the books I've read this year and there's also lists of the books I've read right back to 2012.
