Glitch

I tried reading this. I really did but the book was so lifeless, monotonous, and overall just dreary that it felt more like a chore than a pleasure to read it. I would get my ipad, open up Glitch, and start reading every day.

Surprisingly, I didn’t get very far. 
The main character herself was quite idiotic in the beginning and there was poor world building. It seemed a bit too much like every other dystopian novel out there. Also, nothing had an ACTUAL name. It’s like the author wasn’t original enough to come up with her won cool titles. Instead, it was:
Food Dispension Center
Sanitation System
Corridor
OK, one time is acceptable but after reading at least 15 of these absurd titles, I was done! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! That was a simple mistake that I’m surprised no one caught. Maybe if the names were more interesting the book would have been a little more manageable but alas, it was not to be. 
But seriously, someone should fix that. The Corridor is just wrong.
Maybe the book got better but I doubt it. 
This book had a lot of expectations from me and it didn’t live up to any. But maybe that’s just me. But if you want to read it, I would definetly recommend the library, just saying.
