Nope. DNF

The Wicked Wallflower - Maya Rodale

I tried. I got a little less than 40 % of the way in. I'm bummed I spent that much time on it. Trite characterizations, and admittedly, the wallflower trope is one of my favorites. As a reader, I tend to be harder on books that use tropes I really love. I want it to be special. Or fun. Or Interesting. The book is none of the above.

The prose itself isn't AWFUL, but there's nothing memorable about it either.  Boring the shit out of me isn't a crime by any means, but I'm not going to pick up another book by the author either. I try not to DNF books I request, but I'm not particularly masochistic and don't feel like punishing myself by reading a book that I'm not enjoying. (And I'm not all that goddamn witty - unlike MANY of you Booklikers)
