I got a bound manuscript of this book at the S&S party this year, and I was probably more excited about it than I was about any other book I got. I love Lauren's writing, and even in this book, her writing is beautiful. However, I've read over 100 pages of Perfect Ruin, and I'm just not feelin' it. I've looked at Goodreads reviews, and they're all so positive. What am I missing? I'm just bored. Nothing is really happening, and I'll admit, I'm kind of impatient. I need something. There are a few mysterious things going on, like a girl was murdered, and something happening with the government, but it's kind of like watching something on the news. It's interesting, but it's not happening to you, so after it's off, you stop thinking about it. I need more.
Oddly enough, it kind of reminds me of The Program, which was my last Read or Ditch book. :/
