I wonder why I think (yes, I'm even baffling to myself) I like YA novels and continue to read/listen to them. It is becoming very apparent to me that I just might not. The ones I truly enjoy seem to be far and few between. Maybe it's the case of too many in a row or poor choices on my part, but I really need to give this genre a rest.
Had I known the storyline would repeat 7 times, I would not have read it. I don't even like to reread books once! I can understand others enjoying the unique approach, but it was not for me. I really didn't like anything about this book; however, I did want to know the ending even after on occasion only listening with one ear. Oh, and that ending . . . terrible. :(
