I know, I know, it’s been forever since I posted on my page. I’m so sorry!! Lately I haven’t had as much free time to read, let alone write a review. But I’m trying to balance out my time better so I will be able to enjoy and do all the things I love.
After Delirium I took a small break from reading and focused on work and studies. About a week ago I went out and I bought the book: Beautiful Creatures. I had heard it was being made into a film and I knew I just had to have it. The back of the book was compelling and Melissa Marr as well as Cassandra Clare gave it rave reviews. At this point i was sold.
I brought the book home and I read it instantly. After the relationship between Ethan and Lena started to evolve, I got so bored. I thought this book so was so boring and really immature for my tastes. I starting to think Teen Fiction isn’t something I can read anymore. I doesn’t interest me as much as others.
I had extremely high hopes for this book and it let me down. Definitely not a favourite. The writing itself was fine. The characters were just boring and the over all storyline was nothing to write home about.
The quote at the top of the back of the book that reads “Give this to fans of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight or HBO’s True Blood series.” Was seriously over sold. It has nothing to do with the storyline of Twilight and True Blood. Its a completely different storyline altogether!
In any case. This book was not pleasing as well. But this review wasn’t all I wanted to writed about today. I need your guys’s help in picking out my next read. I have three books to choose from and I can’t decide which one to start with. Which ever one gets the most votes wins!
1) Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
2) Switched by Amanda Hocking
3) Eve by Anna Carey
What did you think of Beautiful Creatures? And what book do you think I should read next?
