If you haven’t followed along from the beginning of the year, I decided not to waste my time on any reviews that didn’t excite me in one way or another. This is the first month however, that I put that to practice. I have a couple of things to say about those books, but just not enough to make it worth my time to do a full blown review.
3 out of 5 stars – I honestly feel bad for not liking this more since it’s from two authors whom I normally enjoy very much. There are a ton of poop, fart and sex jokes here. Which don’t get me wrong, I enjoy immaturity greatly. A fart will never NOT be funny. However, there just wasn’t enough investment in characters to make me care much what happened. To anyone. This was meant to be a satire about fantasy tropes, it is that. It just fell a bit flat and I will not be continuing the series.
3 out of 5 stars – This was so forgettable that I had to check my goodreads to remember which was my other ‘meh’ book of the month. It might even deserve less stars than I gave it. I’m not sure how you make a gunslinger in a weird west setting boring, but Harris achieved that here. There wasn’t much to like about the main character but the rest of the world building was kind of cool. Another series I will not be continuing.
I’m not very far into this one yet and it took me a minute to feel like I was going to enjoy myself so we’ll see what happens with this one.
What did you read recently that you didn’t feel much one way or the other about?
