#7The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel
Fulfills 2016 Popsugar Reading Challenge #29: A dystopian novel
Rating: 4.5 out of 5
I've heard very little buzz about this YA dystopian, which is first in a duology. Unlike the more popular YA dystopian series out there, this one is character driven, as opposed to action based. That does not mean this book drags, not by any means!
I also forgot to mention the two books I DNFed in October:
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson: I was going to read this for the R.I.P. Challenge and the #Spookathon. I DNFed after the first chapter because I just wasn't feeling it and I didn't want to ruin my reading mojo by trying to force myself through it. I do want to come back to it in the future.
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman: I DNFed about an hour into the audiobook. I stopped listening because I felt I will enjoy it more in physical form. I feel like realistic books like contemporaries or literary fiction are easier to follow in audiobook format than fantasies.
