FRIDAY'S FINISH IT OR FORGET IT
I find the premise for these afterlife books very intriguing. That's part of the reason I requested Touching the Surface. But similarly to the last afterlife book I read (Level 2), this one was really boring and the love triangle was becoming unbearable. I really need action, fantasy or huge nagging questions to get into a book, and Touching the Surface didn't deliver this for me. And I was a third of the way through! Elliot was changing her mind already about which boy she liked depending on the minute and her poor defenseless best friend (who was a girl) was already in the middle. No I couldn't go on. Which is sad because I was really engrossed by the mystery of Elliot's life. My husband was shocked, and I quote, "This is the second book in a week you havn't finished! What is wrong with you? Maybe you should stop reading altogether!". In your dreams hun, nice try! I'm just in a reading rut. Can someone get me out of this rut and should I finish or forget Touching the Surface?
