I don’t want to do it.
I hate doing it but I have to say it, I’m bored and I’m only on Chapter 3. It’s such a bummer, my 2nd book of the year and I’m off to this kind of start?
I try not to pick books by their cover, (I’m lying, that’s like how I pick 99% of books 😝) but this one caught my attention and the description pushed forth the purchase:
Denton Little’s Deathdate takes place in a world exactly like our own except that everyone knows the day on which they will die. For Denton, that’s in just two days—the day of his senior prom.
Despite his early deathdate, Denton has always wanted to live a normal life, but his final days are filled with dramatic firsts. First hangover. First sex. First love triangle—as the first sex seems to have happened not with his adoring girlfriend, but with his best friend’s hostile sister. (Though he’s not totally sure—see, first hangover.) His anxiety builds when he discovers a strange purple rash making its way up his body. Is this what will kill him? And then a strange man shows up at his funeral, claiming to have known Denton’s long-deceased mother, and warning him to beware of suspicious government characters. . . . Suddenly Denton’s life is filled with mysterious questions and precious little time to find the answers.
I don’t know what’s going wrong, it has all the pieces of being a good read without them actually fitting together.
I think I’ll give it a few more pages and hopefully that turns into a few more chapters and I can complete book 2 of my Goodreads challenge. I would just hate to give up so early in the game and BOOK!
