A Somewhat Lackluster Finish

The Offering  - Kimberly Derting

I really loved the first book of this series.  I really liked the second book of this series.  I really struggled with the final book of this series.  I want to say the problem was me and that if you have read the first two books you will be delighted with the final installment.  I just wasn't.  


My problem was one that I find in a lot of YA reads.  The MC has a problem and comes up with a really stupid plan and doesn't tell a soul.  Why?  Why not tell the people closest to you that you need help?  Because guess what Charlie, your inability to open up to those around you because you think that your big plan you came up with will defy the odds and save the world caused a big stinkin mess.  I don't get it.  At least this was better than other books that I have had to DNF because of this issue.  The good thing is that I enjoyed the series enough to press through and continue reading (but got a headache rolling my eyes so much).  


I also found myself skimming a bit.  There was a lot of internal dialogue and description that I just didn't care about.  Or maybe I would have cared more had I not been annoyed with the MC so much.


Despite these issues I did want to know what happened and wanted to finish the book.  I'm glad I read it and more importantly, I'm glad it was a short book I could finish quickly.
