We’re now halfway through the Reindeer Readathon!
I’ve finished two more books this week. It’s one less than last week but assuming I keep reading two a week then I’ll finish 9 books before the end of the month. But I’m driving to work this week rather than getting the bus so I’m not sure how I’ll go…
Faced with terrible options both Ianthe and Robert do what the must. Their journey from a “convenient” marriage to one of love is long and arduous. And to be honest, I got a little bit over Ianthe’s theatrics and lack of self esteem by about 3/4 of the way through.
I understand how debilitating this can be, but Robert needed to step up and help her and he didn’t which just really frustrated me.
As a debut novel I was pleasantly surprised by this read. I was right in thinking it’d have a big impact on me.
The concept of fear, living for the future etc were thoroughly explored and I loved how Kelly was able to touch on so many topics in one book without it being huge, overwhelming, confusing or not quite right.
I have a full review coming in early Jan for this one.
