Yes. I know. No Friday Book Blog. But I only read one book last week. It took me all week to get through My Notorious Life by Kate Manning. The first 80 pages went well, and the last 100 pages flew, but 250 pages in the middle? Ugh.
Not badly written, but it reads more like a documentary (as told in somewhat ungrammatical English) which I suspect is deliberate. I guess I just wanted a bit more action. Or perhaps I just didn't have enough invested. Either way, it was an interesting look at abortion in the mid-nineteenth century and the place women held in society.
