Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
Current progress: 222/469 (47%)
Why did I start reading it?
I read her Temeraire series years ago and loved it! Admittedly, I wasn’t actually that excited to read this one because I had a feeling it wouldn’t totally hit right for me, but I had a Book of the Month credit to use or lose, so I got a copy of this book to try.
How is it going?
Alas… my initial impression was correct so far and I’m reaaaally struggling through this one right now. Right as I settle in with each character, I get dragged to a different one and totally lose the plot. I don’t care about any of them enough because I keep getting interrupted! It’s very annoying and 100% preventing me from sinking into it.

I’m sorry you’re not enjoying this one. I was super excited to read it a while back, but then I read the short story it started from and I didn’t enjoy that. I was hoping that the full novel would be better than the short, but it sounds like it has a lot of the same issues.

Oh man, I wish I’d known too so I could sample it like you did! On the bright side, now I have a book to trade or sell since it’s a BOTM branded one and sometimes people prefer to have the branded ones for their collection. xD Spinning silver linings, right? 😀
LOL! And yes, at least it should easily find a home in someone’s collection.
