Why I Dropped The Girl in 6E by A.R. Torre



I used to always finish books. The scrutiny that I read with now was not present when I was younger and, as a result, everything I got my hands on was brilliant! The idea that a book might not be good never even crossed my mind. Unfortunately, as I've grown older and matured, I have come to learn that there is such a thing as a bad book. Not everything will be a masterpiece and sometimes you have to put some books down. The Girl in 6E by A.R. Torre might be one of these.

To be frank, it wasn’t terrible. It wasn’t that good either. It was one of those books that almost makes it but falters when it comes to actually crossing the finish line. I just couldn’t hack it. It was intriguing at first but then . it . just . stopped. I have no idea why. The plot just didn’t progress and the sex got boring. Yeah. THE SEX GOT BORING. Something else that got boring? The main character’s MURDEROUS THOUGHTS. I’m a little bit in awe at how Torre managed to do that, but I will give her huge props for drawing me in. The cover is gorgeous, and the writing really isn’t that bad!

Honestly though, I quite like the author. I’ve recently discovered that she has a YouTube channel where she discusses her writing process and what not. It’s pretty good! She has some unique takes on how to write a novel and an engaging on-screen personality. I might not be a huge fan of the book, but I’m happy that she managed to get it published and revered to the extent that it is! My review is a little HARSH in the respect. If you want to know a little more about why I DNF’d the book, check out the video below!
