I am sure most of you have had books that were bought, which were started but then for some reason stopped in between only never to be picked up again. I have a list of such books with me, both paperback and Kindle books. Why would I even have them on the shelves (physical or online). Because I am never sure when the mood would strike and I would pick them up again and continue. To name a few of them, ‘Brothers Karamazov’, ‘The Fountainhead’, ‘The Winner stands alone’ etc. The book associated with today’s alphabet is one such. Sadly 😦
Name: The Uninvited Guests by Sadie Jones
Genre: Mystery, Thriller, Paranormal, Gothic, Fiction
I bought this book on a sale (paying in Euro’s in fact) while on my way from Paris to London on the ferry’s book shop. I got three books for the price of two. I did complete one during the trip. One I finished when I got back home. The third on, The Uninvited Guests, was the one that got dumped not even half way through. Not that it was uninteresting. It was a mystery. I did not know it was a paranormal story (at that time at least) but it was going pretty OK. And I honestly don’t remember the reason for me to stop that book. Was it because it was a little slow for my taste? May be or may be not. I remember about the accident that brought people to this estate and the girl not being very happy about it because it was her birthday and she didn’t want the attention away from her. But that is where I stopped. Now I might have to pick it up again sometime and complete it or at least, see if I got bored of the story earlier or was it some other external factors that made me put that book back in the shelf. If you have read that book, please drop in a word as to how you felt about that book, or if you have written a review of the same, please do ping me the link. I would love to know about it.
