Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

Dusk ★☆☆☆☆ (DNF)

Dusk - Ron Dee

Truly the most awful book I've attempted to read in years. The characters are awful, the language is awful, and the premise is awful. DNF after the absolute minimum 50 pages.


Paperback. I don't even know how this book came to be on my shelf, but I'm tossing it rather than inflicting it on someone else by putting it in the donation box. 



I was attempting to read this book for the Booklikes Halloween Bingo 2019, for the square American Horror Story: Horror set in the United States, but will pick a different book instead.
