A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent - Marie Brennan

I'm sorry I haven't been around. It's been a real tough month here. I'll be posting a few reviews I made on Goodreads a while ago within the next couple days. I'm sorry.

I don't know what it is about this book. I was hooked the first half, but around 60% it lost my interest and I can't put my finger on why. I'll definitely read the other two, as they are some good qualities and also due to the fact that I may or may not have gotten the third book from Netgalley... They just may be some space in between the next two books that I read other books. I wasn't entirely bored but not entirely enthralled. at least, like I said, not after a certain point.
This book could've and should've been right up my alley, but I found myself continually wanting to read other books, which is sad. I love the style of the writing as I love travel journals, I love the regency period, and I love natural history as well as fantasy. I don't care about action, so what went wrong? Honestly, I can't figure it out. I wasn't compelled to read it, and that's why it took me so long to finish it. Not terrible, not even remotely, but not something I'd pick up again. I'm sorry.

I suppose maybe I wanted more character development. More of learning who our heroine is, more romance with our leads so their relationship is more developed. Maybe I didn't like it so much because I didn't care about the people in it? I wanted a little more story.

Hopefully the other books will improve.
