Wednesday Book Revi… Impression

Catherin Canter - The WellRuth Ardingly has just been released from prison to serve out a sentence of house arrest for arson and suspected murder at her farm, The Well. Beyond its borders, some people whisper she is a witch; others a messiah. For as soon as Ruth returns to The Well, rain begins to fall on the farm. And it has not rained anywhere else in the country in over three years.








Well my December sort of spiraled out of control and in the middle of it all I was trudging my way through Catherin Chanter’s The Well. My goal was to read four books in four weeks, a book a week. I mean I read through the previous book that quickly so easy peasy right? Right… unless you find a book that is slow, tedious and just takes forever to engage you. That was The Well for me.

Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad book at all. I’m 140 pages in and I am definitely keen on reading the rest of it, but I do find the whole story long-winded and elaborate and therefore it’s taking a bit longer to finish than I would have expected. I’ll write up a proper review once I finish.

Well that does mean I kind of didn’t get to hit my four books a week quota. But hey that happens, so I’m knocking out two books for the week, this one as well as Hollow City, the second book in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. If you’re curious about what I’m reading, check out the widget with a link to my Goodreads page.
