I usually would rather post about a book I’m excited about. In our family read-alouds we’ve been following along with a series the last couple of years. The first three books we adventurous, exciting and fun. The third book, to me, came to a pretty good end.
We just finished the fourth book and while the daughter liked it well enough, My Lovely Bride and I were slogging through the thing. It just didn’t have a point for us. We told her if there are any more books in this series she can read them on her own. That’s one great thing when they get a little older. You can split books into ones you agree to read aloud and ones they can read on their own!
But yeah, I don’t see any reason to write a bad review. I gave it two stars on Goodreads because it wasn’t terrible, it just wasn’t for me and I didn’t really see the point of it. Kind of like Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull I suppose. Just cashing in.
