I borrowed this book through my local library and reviewed it.
God, this book. I'm so disappointed! When I read the plot and the concept, I was so stoked. The Reader had so much potential--amazing worldbuilding and fascinating characters. I wanted to love it, and for a while, I really did. But the author lost me when it came to the magic and how it worked--I didn't understand it at all. Really, really sad--I had such high hopes for this book, but the magic could use some work. I ended up DNFing at 219 pages. Next on deck: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake!
