A Spectacle of Souls review

This book has an absolutely stunning cover and a premise I was interested in: Creepy Circus. That’s unfortunately where it ended. The writing was over-written, descriptions went on forever. I didn’t really connect to the main character and her best friend seemed more like a caricature than a real person. 

There were phrases used that no teenager would actually use and the romance felt rushed, there was nothing holding me onto it. I wanted to like this book but it was a bit of a slog to get through. At one point I just didn’t want to anymore. 

I really wanted to like this book but it was unfortunately not holding my interest anymore. When you’re reading a book the thought “why do I need to know every detail about how this looks” should never cross your mind. But it happened a lot.
