If you are a regular reader of my blog than you may know that earlier this year I put out a list of books that I wanted to read and I was totally stoked about them. I was so stoked that I decided to rush and finish a book that I had been reading off and on at the end of last year and carried over into the start of 2016.
Sad to say, I still haven’t finished that book. The novel, Reconstructing Amelia received positive ratings online and I love a ‘gone girl’ type of mystery involving women. It’s totally crazy, but if there were books on missing men, I wouldn’t care as much. The story follows the proposed suicide of a 15 year old sexually confused girl and the narrative goes between her and her mother who is coping with the loss of her daughter that she didn’t spend much time with.
You would think that all of these factors add up to an interesting page turner, but sadly I am unable to stay interested. I’m not sure if I’m reading too late or if I’m simply not interested, but since I purchased the book, I’m somewhat determined to finish it at some point in my life.
Has anyone read this book? Please tell me that it gets more compelling!
