I have been busy the past couple of days, but I hope to make a real dent in this book today. It's not that it isn't interesting--5 sisters living in a huge old castle find a passageway into another world--but I have just not gotten into it yet.
I am having a difficult time with some of the names. How exactly do you pronounce Iulia? For some reason, it slows me down when I can't pronounce character names in my head. Every time I see that name, I focus on the fact that I can't say the name. This particular name has been in the story a lot so far. Maybe I should just call her "Julia."
