I know this book is beloved by many but I. JUST. COULDN’T.

I’m not exactly sure why. It was an audiobook so I listened to it while doing other things like driving, ironing kid’s uniforms, cleaning the house etc. I tried to hang in there but once I discovered that the MC had a crush on her brother and kissed him, it was all down hill from there. I kind of felt that the author (or her editors) were trying to make the book more interesting/scandalous than it really was gross me out.

No matter how hard I tried – and I did – I couldn’t get past this aspect to the story. I didn’t connect with a single character. I had no empathy for them and didn’t find any interesting. Well, maybe except for the girl who learned her rich daddy really wasn’t her daddy. That must have been tough.

I have the utmost respect for creativity and recognize it’s not easy to create something liked by everyone, but I thank goodness loads of others love this book enough whereby my solitary inability to stand it (strong, I know), won’t matter.

No shade but, how did I manage to get through Fallen but not get past this book? good lord

Yup, those were my thoughts on The Thousandth Floor.

    1. Gosh, I’m so glad I’m not the only one, lol! I hate it when I can’t finish a book. I almost take it like a personal failure. Honestly, its weird thing I do. I always force myself to read practically every book I start. This one, however, just didn’t work for me. Thanks so much for stopping by and chiming in!

  1. Hilarious! I know how hard it is to not finish a book. I’ve been trying to read Wicked since it came out in hard cover. What’s wrong with me? A few chapters in and I keep giving up. Thanks for the post.

    1. There’s nothing wrong with you =) Sometimes, one’s spirit just doesn’t jive with a book. Not our fault right? I don’t even blame the writers half the time. A book can’t be everything to everybody. shrug
