Dewy’s 24-Hour Read-A-Thon: Update #1

Sheesh! I almost changed my mind about participating but I would have felt bad, so I’m pushing forward! This morning was hectic, in currently in the middle of organizing and packing, so I didn’t get started on this book The Company We Keep until late in the day. That said I’ve made it through 103 pages and I must say, I’m not terribly impressed with the story thus far. If you read the book description, one would expect that the interaction between “Terri” and “Harrison” would be at the forefront of the story, but this isn’t the case. With only 177 pages left, the author is introducing all these peripheral characters as side story plots. The main characters haven’t even really reunited! And at some point, “Harrison” is supposed have some deep, dark secret that will cause problems; I need this book to get to the meat of the story real soon because I’m loosing interest. This is surprising me because I love the author’s other books, especially her God Don’t…series. I feel like this book may have been written with a bunch of leftover ideas, but I’ll try to keep an open mind and finish the book before I decide that it wasn’t worth my money.

I hope everyone else is having a great day of reading!

  1. Hang in there! The read-a-thon is about finding the time to read. How long doesn't matter. I'm sorry that you're first book isn't the greatest. Hopefully, your next book will motivate you.
