Brief thoughts about books that for one reason or another I just couldn’t make myself finish. Some of these just weren’t for me…others I think were just bad timing. We all know how we go through different reading moods at different times. Despite not finishing them…I did want to share a few of my thoughts about each. Please don’t let my thoughts discourage you from reading or further researching these books. Remember mine is just one person’s humble opinion 🙂

The beast raged; it punctured the air with its spite. But the girl was fiercer.
Tea is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy makes her a bone witch, who are feared and ostracized in the kingdom. For theirs is a powerful, elemental magic that can reach beyond the boundaries of the living—and of the human.
Great power comes at a price, forcing Tea to leave her homeland to train under the guidance of an older, wiser bone witch. There, Tea puts all of her energy into becoming an asha, learning to control her elemental magic and those beasts who will submit by no other force. And Tea must be strong—stronger than she even believes possible. Because war is brewing in the eight kingdoms, war that will threaten the sovereignty of her homeland…and threaten the very survival of those she loves.

Ah…I am so sad that this one didn’t work for me!
I initially fell in love with that cover (seriously…is that not one of the most gorgeous covers you’ve ever seen?!?!?!) at the end of last year and upon researching Rin Chupeco and hearing about ho lush and descriptive her writing style is, I was sold. Then add in a Witch…and well…how could I resist!
Sadly, The Bone Witch just didn’t deliver as expected. The writing was definitely rich and evocative, but there was little to no character development and even less action.
Frankly I was just too bored to keep plodding through.
I wanted more magic, more witches, more everything and just didn’t get enough to keep going.
