Gave up on

Perfect Fifths by Megan McCafferty

I really enjoyed the first two books in the Jessica Darling series, but the series started to lose some of its appeal after the third book. This one was a disappointment. I could not get into the story at all, it just read like stream of consciousness babble and snark. I tried, but decided it wasn’t worth my time after a few chapters.

The Monthly Round-up is a regular feature wherein I list the books I read each month.
