I appear to keep on forgetting things in my Linger review, so I'm posting today for the third time.
One thing that irritated me immensely was Maggie's overuse of a certain character trait and plot developer.
Isabel and Cole had many heartfelt discussions. Every time, the character whose point of view it is does something like,
I wondered why I was telling him/her everything. It was because I knew s/he wouldn't care.
Every time they spoke, whoever was telling had the same thought: I'm doing it because Cole/Isabel doesn't care anyways, and won't feel bad for me.
Once or twice this is fine, but it got increasingly annoying as the book progressed.
Welcome! I'm Riv Re, teenager and aspiring author. I post Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Tuesdays are for book reviews; Thursdays are for a weekly meme called "Character Dolls," which showcases character depictions I made online; and on Sundays I just wing it.
This blog is for my writing misadventures, my reviews, ramblings, and rants. My favorite genre is fantasy, so expect a lot of the unusual.
Warning: I've got an awful sense of humor. Don't blame me if you keel up and die from reading the jokes I crack.
Notice: I hold no responsibility for any deaths caused by previously mentioned jokes.
Enjoy and happy reading!
