Partials (Partials Sequence #1) by Dan Wells

Partials by Dan Wells

Didn't finish this one. 

I've read reviews where people say "the beginning isn't the best, but keep reading." If the beginning isn't good, then the book has no hope. I didn't like the beginning of this book and I got bored, therefore, I did not finish this book.

The 5th Wave (The Fifth Wave #1) by Rick Yancey

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey


I’m a big lover of contemporary books. I love paranormal every now and then and I enjoy dystopian books. When I read the blurb for The 5th Wave on Goodreads, I thought I wouldn’t like it. I knew it wasn’t my kind of book. Then I read the blurb again on Netgalley, and I thought, wow, this looks good, maybe I will enjoy it! I made a split decision to step outside my comfort zone.

I’m really not at all surprised that I’ve decided not to finish this book. I’m only 26% in and I’m quitting.  It took me a while to get into, but I enjoyed the first bit of The 5th Wave. I thought it was interesting and I loved the snarky, sarcastic tone of the protagonist. But then I got to 24%, “Wonderland” and I lost it. I got confused and I didn’t like the sudden change.
I didn’t think this book was a bad book. I thought it was incredible. But it just wasn’t the right book for me.

*Thanks to Penguin Books Australia and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read this book*
