My April Fun Read was Ill Wind by Rachel Caine. I made to page 83 before putting the book down and forgetting where I put it.
I found the story premise intriguing and the world building impressive. I also didn’t mind the 1st person POV. I’ve read some first person books that either turned me off the story or the pov character.
So why didn’t I make it passed page 83?
1) The heroine said something that made me not want to root for her. I tried to look past the comment, but it clouded her later actions for me.
2) There was too much backstory for me. I understand the information is necessary, but it just slowed down the story for me. I wanted to get to the exciting part/parts.
Even though I didn’t finish the book, I’d still recommend it.
