~ My Review ~
Into The Dim is a clear case of “it not you, it’s me.” I, for the hell of me, can’t seem to be interested into this, even though I really liked the synopsis. It sounded intriguing and like a lot of fun.
But I couldn’t connect with the main character Hope nor did I care about the story. The truth is I couldn’t care less. It took me more than 1 month to get to 20%. And that’s a lot of time when it comes to reading with me. I usually read a book – if I really like it and have the necessary time – in a day.
So I decided to dnf this book and hope you will like it more than I did.
