The Girl in the Clockwork Collar - Kady Cross

I have to stop for tonight.  I have to.  I wanted to finish out the chapter, but my God, the author's invention of the biggest Mary Sues and Gary Stus around is aggravating.

 

I honestly don't know if I'll be coming back to this, which pains me.  I've been on a reading streak this month and I would like to keep it up, but this book, its Mary Sue characters, its illogical plots, its stupidity, the characters reacting one way and two minutes later reacting its opposite, are breaking me down.

 

It makes me even sadder that I recommended this dumb ass series to Kan because I genuinely thought the first book would be good.  Instead, I've just brought to light a series that should've never seen the light of day.
