THE SERPENT PAPERS by Jessica Cornwell (DNF)

The Serpent Papers (Serpent Papers Trilogy #1)The Serpent Papers by Jessica Cornwell

Okay, I'm officially calling this my second DNF of 2015. Because I only reached page 156, and won't be skimming ahead, I'm not going to rate it.

I received this book for review. It sounded intriguing. It was intriguing at first. The main character seems to have a peculiar gift that isn't explained very well. I also liked the setting. And the horrible mystery of the dead girls, but... the fragmented storytelling style killed it for me. Instead of grabbing me and keeping me hooked as different pieces of the puzzle come together, it threw me out of the story. Kept me from returning for days.

So, yeah, the way this book is written didn't work for me. I really wanted to like it because it sounded like the kind of thriller I usually enjoy, and the mention of alchemy was cool. But I can't keep reading something I'm not feeling.

It's such a shame. :(
