I Tried.

Cody's Dragon - K.M. Mahoney

I wanted to like this book. I really did. Unfortunately, I just couldn't.


I liked the idea of dragons. Yay, gimme some awesome overgrown lizards. I can't comment on how well the dragons were portrayed in this novel, heck, I can't even tell you how much of the word was fleshed out. I didn't get that far.


I finished reading at around chapter eight. I know, I know, not very far in. Here's the thing though, I found myself trudging through this book. Constantly checking how long I had to go until I was done. Then I realised, why am I even reading it? Whats the point of reading a book that is making me not want to read. Now, this is probably me being quite harsh, but well, whatever. 


I think that my main problem with this book is the insta-love. I can't stand it. I'm sorry, I just can't. And this book was particularly bad. Like I don't even think Cody knew the dragon's name and he had fallen in love. The dragon I can understand, because they have this dragon power thing, which lets them know if its true love, and their soul mate and blah blah blah. But Cody? Nope, he's a regular old (well, he aint old, but yanno) human. I'm sorry to those who do like insta-love. I just don't. Its not for me.


If insta-love is your thing, then I would definitely recommend this book. Hopefully you'll make it past chapter eight.
