Ok. I think it's time. I let this drag on long enough. I was determined to finish this one but I have been reading it since MAY. Every.single.time. that I attempt to get back into it I want to claw my eyes out. I can't do it. I don't know what happened between the first book (which I enjoyed) and this one, but it doesn't even feel like the same series. The humor is gone, the quick pacing is gone, the compulsive readability is gone. I might try it again down the line, but for now? It's official. I GIVE UP.
