Disclaimer: I received this book free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

My second DNF in a week.  It might look like I’m unlucky in books right now, but don’t be deceived. I have been reading some really wonderful books lately and have reviews planned that I’m holding for closer to their release date. I’ve been getting a few approvals from TOR on Netgalley lately, and I’m hoping that they will make it a habit. I love them so much. I want them to be my boyfriend. 😍

Back to the business at hand.  I love books by women, about women, with women, everything women. I LOVE them. So I was excited to get my hands on this anthology of short stories. At first I thought it was going to be historical fiction based on actual people, it turned out that this … was not that.  It is short stories about women. An “anthology of revolution and resistance“. Resist?! To which I thought, hell yeah!

Unfortunately, I found the stories to be lackluster.  They were not particularly inspiring.  While most were well written they lacked a spark. I grew increasingly disinterested and eventually stopped reading. I think I expected a little more fire. However, I must be in the minority because this series of books is very popular! So don’t let my glum attitude lead you astray if you’re interested. I just won’t be along for the ride.
