The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire by C. M. Mayo
Unbridled Books - Historical fiction
448 pages - DNF
I wrestled with whether to give up on this book temporarily or keep trying. Giving up won simply because (as mentioned in last night's post) I'm in burn-out mode, having trouble concentrating. This happens to me, now and then, and the cure is to take a few days off, shift to easy, quick reads or ditch everything and start all over. Most important thing to note:
There's nothing wrong with the book. It's all me.
In fact, I liked what I read. I just kept zoning out because I'm so tired. I'm intrigued by the story, the tale of a half-American prince, and adore historical fiction. But, if I shove my way through the book, I'll probably get a lot less out of it; the book deserves a reader's full attention.
