TW – Racism
When I (painfully) tried to read this book, I was in a GR-annoys-me phase (you know what I mean), and didn’t get to post a ranty DNF review because 1)not worth my time and 2)well, NOT WORTH MY TIME. It was the second book from P.C. Cast I tried to read and… Well, I never managed to reach 10%? Because what the fuck is this writing? Really?
ANYWAY. I would have probably forgotten this book even existed if not for seeing it on the NY Times list. Not that it would surprise me that much, given that Red Queen made it its home and you all know what I think about Mare fucking Barrows and her woman hate. But then I read reviews about Moon Chosen and… this racist shit is not acceptable, guys. In addition for being a terribly written novel taking place in a poorly crafted ‘world-building’ with a TSTL heroine whose actions make no sense, it had to include blackfaces and negative portrayal of dark-skinned and biracial characters? Like??? In what world??
As for me, I won’t try again to read anything by P.C. Cast. There’s just not enough reading time in my life to waste it reading terrible books.
