NOT A REVIEW: The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison
Did Not Finish , Reviews / December 12, 2014

I almost made it through this book. Almost. I got to about the 80% mark, so close it seemed a waste to not finish as I hate marking the review as DNF. But, I just couldn’t do it. I’ve been in a reading slump and found my lack of excitement for this book was not helping me. I also knew if I set it aside I would never come back to it. So there it is. I decided to move on. Before I go further, I want to add that I felt a stronger obligation to continue with this book because pretty much every blogger (and some non-bloggers) I know had really positive things to say about it. I think everyone gave this either 4 or 5 stars. That’s a solid indication this book is worth reading. So, now how to sum up my reaction to the book? This is the hard part, because if I didn’t think the book had any merit, it’s unlikely that I would have read as much as I did and coming here and sharing all the things that made me stop reading would be much easier. The premise is interesting.The protagonist, Maia, is nice…
