30 Day Book Challenge - Day 25: A book you want to like, but can’t get into for whatever reason

Day 25: A book you want to like, but can’t get into for whatever reason.

Based on the synopsis, this book sounded right up my alley! The plot sounded to me like a cross between steampunk, fantasy, and dystopia because the protagonist, Vespa, is trying to save the world which is inhabited by mythological creatures. Unfortunately, this book did not live up to my expectations. The main reason for that is the confusing world-building. It was very difficult to follow what was going on.
What about you?  Have you read this book? What did you think?

What book did you want to like but couldn't get into for whatever reason? I would love to hear from you! Just leave a comment below!


  1. For me it is the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I keep trying to power through it, but its so hard for me to really care about these characters! I'm about 1/3 way through and its taken me 4 months to get that far!

    1. Oh, wow, juliababyjen! That series was highly recommended to me by a number of people, although I haven't read it yet. I'm sorry to hear that you are having a hard time getting into it! Maybe I'll push it down my TBR list...

  2. I'm afraid I have a lot of these, unfortunately. Angelfire and Still Waters are two that come to mind immediately for me. I thought I would love them but Angelfire I could barely finish. To perseverance!

    1. Oh, dear...I just bought Angelfire. I'm sorry to hear that you had a hard time getting into it :(
