Maybe We Should See Other People... (1)

Forever Young Adult
The subject matter alone left me a bit reluctant to begin, but Stolen was a Printz honor book, for crying out loud. It was supposed to be amazing, and I couldn't let an uncomfortable storyline get in my way. Unfortunately though, regardless of the plot, it was the format that forced me to shelf it. Without chapters or defined pauses, I just couldn't get into it. This was a case where it was definitely me, not the book. I am a sporadic reader who likes to read a chapter or two at a time, and without clear stopping points, I couldn't continue. I'd love to give it another try when I have a day to devote to it without distractions, but it just hasn't happened yet.
Did you read Stolen? If so, what did you think? Has there been another well-received book you couldn't get into? Leave answers in the comments!
