Prophecy of the Sisters is shelved

 This is not a review, not even close. No matter how I tried, I could not finish this book. I don't think it's because of the writing or the story, I just couldn't get into it. You may understand how I feel or not but I am actually not happy that I couldn't finish it.
I am a stickler for finishing books. How can you judge a book without actually reading the thing entirely? It doesn't make sense to me. I don't hate this book I just couldn't read it.

There are many reasons to not read a whole book. For me, a big one would be if it is poorly written. You can't follow the book if you can't understand the book. An example of that would be Fifty Shades of Grey. The reason I loathe that book is because it got famous because of what it is about or the theory of how it came about instead of the value of the writing which is downright horrible. I just couldn't get through it because it irked me that more talented writers were getting passed up because of scrap paper like that.

This book however is nothing like that. There could be many reasons why I couldn't finish it. The writing is very formal and old style. The setting is very old and I'm more of a futuristic reader/writer. I couldn't connect with the character (which is odd because I am a twin and I am almost positive she is pure evil). No matter what it was I just couldn't do it.

So, for now Prophecy of the Sisters is getting shelved. I own the book so it will be there ready for me to pick up whenever I get the chance. On to the next one!
