Melt – Netgalley

Published December 31, 2014 by Book Junkette

Happy midnight, my sweet scones!

While everyone else is out celebrating, the Junkette household is watching cheesy movies and reviewing books!

Tonight’s selection is Melt by Selene Castrovilla, by way of NetGalley.

Gotta love them!

This book..it started out odd.

The way it was written, made it hard to read, understand.

We all know I have issues with my head, yes? I’ve gone over this before.

In spite of this, I kept on reading, intrigued by this off tale of Dorothy.

About halfway through, it couldn’t hold my attention anymore.

To the DNF pile it goes.

Maybe one of my darlings will enjoy it. Someone without reading issues.

Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer – Netgalley

Wow! Two reviews in one day!!

My poor darlings are going to faint from surprise! 😉

Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer, is courtesy of Scholastic, via NetGalley.

Sadly, this is another DNF.

Initially, reading the blurb, this book sounded incredibly unique.

However, it read more like a Middle School title, as opposed to a YA.

The writing was..let’s not go there.

It just didn’t hold my interest. Tho I did my best.

The plot was interesting, but I couldn’t get more than 5 chapters in.

Don’t let that discourage you, my crullers!

This Junkette just has an off mind is all.

Check it out, let me know what you think!

Ta!

Bloody Bloody Apple – Netgalley

Hello my cinnamon apples!

Today’s review is brought to you by Howard Odentz, courtesy of Netgalley.

Initially I picked this book out, because both the title and cover art intrigued me.

Sadly, about 4 chapters in, it became obvious this would be a DNF for me.

The plot was slow to start, and I couldn’t finish. Honestly, did try my best to continue, but to no avail.

It’s nothing against the author, it just happens sometimes.

To those that enjoy a slow paced murder mystery, try this one out!
