I DNF’d it the day after I posted my last SOTR. It was the cliched “two women characters who obviously hate each other” that did it for me (which makes me look like a hypocritical asshole, but it’s why I’m planning a major overhaul of my first novel so…). It’s such a problematic trope on so many levels and was just the icing on the tombstone for this book. I did check the reviews before I made my official decision and found a lot of my own critiques there. I’m at the point now where if a piece of media does not spark joy, I’m not spending more time on it.
