Here’s the thing: I don’t read a lot of middle grade. It isn’t really my thing but I’ve come to appreciate the differences between each genre of literature, especially in age gap genres like MG, YA, and NA (I still struggle with NA a bit but that’s another story).
When Mafi released Furthermore, I was a little hesitant about it. Although it sounded wonderful, I wasn’t sure what to make of it. I’ve only read the 1st book in the “Shatter Me” series and while I enjoyed it, it’s not something I’ve made a priority on my TBR pile. Don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy this book but… Not as much as I hoped. I wouldn’t necessarily put it along with “overhyped books” but let’s just say I was fairly underwhemled.
