Ya'aburnee means you bury me. (That is to say - I hope to die first, for I cannot go on without you.)
The Shadow Reader - Sandy Williams Abandoned at 59%.
I had written a long explanation saying how I didn't understand why the book didn't click with me, since everything seems perfectly acceptable overall and admitting to a silly feeling of guilt like every time I give up on a book, but my Internet sucks lately and it didn't save.
So that's it, basically. Is it odd I was really entertained when he cut her throat? I mean the bad guys always threaten crap when they're acting as the bad guys, but then agan they're in love so they aren't actually going to hurt anybody. Aren did it which just. On the love dilemma: I don't think I particularly cheered for Aren or Kyol, although I did feel weird most of the time when Aren and McKenzie talked because he kidnapped her, and that's bad, but if he hadn't kidnapped her I would've liked him a lot more. He's... nice? Kinda. At least not an asshole, is what I mean, even if he IS The Bad Boy.
Anyway, this is one of those "it's not you, it's me" occasions. Too bad.
