KYLIE: OMG, my life totally sucks
(goes to party with alcohol involved)
PARENTS: For that, we're sending you away to a summer camp for troubled teenagers.
KYLIE: Like, could this get worse?
KYLIE'S FRIEND SARAH: OMG, pregnancy scare!
KYLIE: I'm, like, so stressed out here. All the kids on the bus with me are, like, Goth freaks. Don't they, like, know that blue is the new black? (actual line from the book)
CAMP DIRECTOR HOLIDAY: Welcome everyone.
KYLIE: I'm not a troubled te ...more
This book is absolutely appalling.
I cannot do it anymore. I cannot. This is one of the worst books I have ever read in my life. There is nothing redeeming about it. It is simply atrocious.
Review to come.
First of, isn't the cover super super pretty?? I love that cover and after reading the synopsis I knew I had to read this book and I was happy enough to get my hand on a ARC, woohoo!
Loved this book! It's about Kylie trying to figure out who she really is, specially in terms of supernatural species. Kylie is stuck in between the divorce of her parents and this hits her really hard. After being caught at a Party where some kids where doing drugs, he ...more
This used to have a review, but then a troll came along, and I realized that this review would probably attract many more, so I just took it down.
The main character is 16-year old Kylie,her parents are getting a divorce and she keeps seeing this weird figure on her front lawn thats invisible to everyone else but her.To get away from it all she goes to a party that ends badly when the police breaks up the party, with he ...more
This book is like one massive parody of all-things paranormal. I might like it if I was fourteen. The plot is very similar to Hex Hall, at least up until the point where I decided that this just doesn't worth my time.
Annoying, self-conscious, whiny heroine who thinks she's funny.
Her life had toilet-bound stamped all over it.
Suddenly, Kylie started feeling people turn and look at her. Or were they looking at all of them?
Stupid, spineless best friend ...more
..a girl leading a normal life. (Well, yeah, if you exclude all the recent mishaps..)
Who would've thought she was anything but normal.
And the blondie was like..
Evolution of unknown powers, which she hadn't even been familiar with. Until now. Two boys vying for her attention. Oh, wait. Make that three. Yeah, that's right. Three guys hungry for her attention..
Two friends, and roommates, totally different species, grabbing any chance to degrade and curse each other.
The writing is well done, but it seemed that these characters were all over the place and the storyline was going everywhere and no where all at once.
Kylie was a very pouty character. Her life really sucks right now and she's gonna make sure the readers know it. Her fixation on the words 'freak' and 'goth', overly excessive denial and her inner dilemma between Trey, Lucas and Derek was all frustrati ...more
Kylie’s life is breaking down around her: her parents consider divorce, her boyfriend dumps her and immediately starts going out with another girl, and a stalker has been introduced into her life. It isn’t until Kylie gets caught at a party -- with under-aged drinking and drugs galore -- that her life gets turned completely upside down. Her Ice Queen mom decides to send her to Shadow Falls Camp, a psychologist-recommended institution for t ...more
Is it a.... fairy?
Is it a... vampire?
Is it a.... werewolf?
Is it a... nnoying?
On page 205 of "Born at Midnight," the (boring, flat, typical) main character, Kylie, is in the same position she was in on page 50. I mean exact same position. She's at a summer camp for supernatural creatures. Her shrink recommended it to her mom because the shrink is half fairy and can recognize the signs of supernatural gifts.
SO. What is Kylie, you m ...more
And boy, how I loved this book from the first chapter!
Kylie Galen is a girl with several problems: parents, whom are getting a divorce, a dead grandmother and a stalker an ...more
Derek, Lucas, and Perry... them my favs ^-^
Here are some quotes (yes, I perfer them in my reviw, dont judge (Ps. These may or may not be spoilers))...
"'They call us boneheads,' the girl said...
'Ha,' said the blond boy. 'They also call us boners.'
A few laughs echoed from the toher seats. 'Why is that funny?' the girl wearing all black asked in a tone so deadly serious that Kylie shivered.
So Kylie Galen, a 16 year old ordinary g ...more
Kylie has her share of problems with her parents divorce, her best friend and now her ex-boyfriend Trey who broke up it off because she didn't entertain the idea of having sex.
She is sent to a camp for troubled teens because she was at a party where there was drugs and liquor and her mother was not ...more
1. Vampires, werewolves and faeries - Check
2. Mary Sue heroine with unique powers - Check
3. Dickhead heroes - Check
4. Shitty love triangle - Check
Yup. Didn't find much originality, really. And the characters were just hard to like. I'd give this book 2 stars, though, because it was bad, but not totally a p ...more
Issues I had with Kylie: her immaturity, the fact that she couldn't get over her ex-boyfriend ...more
My review can also be found on my blog Collections.
Kylie Galen's life sucks at the moment. Her grandmother passed away, her boyfriend broke up with her, her parents are getting divorced, and she's been forced to see a psychologist after she tells her parents that a guy has been stalking her. A guy that apparently only she can see.
Things only get worse for Kylie when she's caught at a party with alcohol, and at the advice of the psychologist, Kylie's parents send her to Shadow Falls Camp ...more
When I started reading this, I actually didn't have very high expectations even though I had read lots of positive reviews about it. But somehow the idea of a camp full of supernatural creatures didn't appeal too much to me. And I was so wrong! I've loved this novel right from the start and sometimes I really had to force myself t ...more
Kylie is a sixteen-year old girl shipped off to a camp for "troubled teens" after being caught by the police at a party during a drug bust. (But our sweet Kylie wasn't doing drugs or drinking or committing any other bad behavior, of course. Because she's boring.) Turns ...more
Yes, the writing isn't all that good, but the story more than makes up for that.
The story itself is not completely predictable, which I enjoy. The mystery lasted throughout the entire book, and the end makes me to read the next book.
This book is of course a young adult paranormal book, and what I liked most about it i ...more
So I read that CC Hunter is a romance author who is trying to jump on the red-hot YA Paranormal train - and she does a good ...more
