Goddess Interrupted (Goddess Test #2)
But if she wants a life with Henry in the Underworld, she'll have to fight for it.
Becoming immortal wasn't supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she's as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he's becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then,...more
Unfortunately, that didn't quite happen here and part of me understands why. A lot of the reviews for The Goddess Test focus on:
GAH! The mythology! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A VIRGIN!? A VIRGIN!? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!
A VIRGIN. I...more
-sigh- I hate when this happens. Screw age laws. Who wants to buy me some shots at the bar to make me feel better?
I would have left this book alone, but this part of the blurb made my blood boil and I had to...more
There are many series came out in last few years on mythology, and most of them were adapted from Persephone Myth. Among them all I think,The Goddess Test was one of the best series, better than another adaption Abandon
Goddess Interrupted took place exactly after six months where The Goddess Test ended. The book started with Kate’s return to Henry, ready to acc...more
Why yes, it did take me a while to process this book.. in a good way, of course. Mostly because I really wanted to save a review until I had the chance to read 'The Goddess Hunt' (the novella before this book).
I hold a soft spot in my heart for this series. It was one of the first books I publicly reviewed (The Goddess Test) and I l...more
I'll admit, I wasn't that thrilled to begin Goddess Interrupted even when I've read The Goddess Test. Why? Because I gave The Goddess Test a rating of 4.0/5.0, but I didn't know why. The Goddess Test didn't impact me in any way, and with all those confusing human and gods names just constantly thrown at me, it got confusing. With Goddess Interrupted, the answer became obvious; Aimee Carter truly makes me feel for the characters and think.
First of all, let me make one thing clear....more
No, seriously. The hell? Was this fanfiction? Fanfiction of a novel which is a modern-day retelling of a Greek myth?
Where was Awesome!Kate? I looked through the ENTIRE book for her. Where was the mouthy, sassy, confident young woman of the first book and novella? Where was the verbal slapdowns? Where was her sure-footed consistency in knowing she was doing the right thing, even if the other gods didn’t believe she was? Where was my feisty girl?
So it was. I loved it...again a great book. Again the beginning wasn't great as I remember the beginning of the first lacking, but once this author gets going, she really hooks me in. Chic lit with all the emotions...jealous, anger, guilt, regret, joy, closeness, rejection and so many more. I was bawling toward the end. Main touched such true emotion. Great writin...more
Kate in this book is: insecure, codependent, maudlin, petulant, jealous, desperate, idiotic.
These things are fine with me - in small doses at low moments of inner struggle or whatever. We all have our times of self-doubt and insecurity and we all let it make us a little bit crazy once in a while. It could have provided some decent character depth to have a heroine who went through some heart-wrenching moments of self-doubt. But this "I'm not good enough" ra...more
revealed, and there are some seriously freaky things going down in Goddess-town.
1. I don't know about anyone else but if i've been alive since the BEGINNING OF TIME or THOUSANDS OF YEARS, and THE HUMAN RACE was about to be DESTROYED, and I was one of the ONLY people who could HELP STOP IT. Then yes I would pu...more
Goddess Interrupted is a beautifully written book full of twists that will keep you hooked until the end. You also meet some new characters who you will love! The book picks up from where The Goddess Test left off. Kate has just come back from her holiday in Greece with her best friend, James. She is desperate to see Henry, desperate for him to hold her, to touch her, to kiss her. But nothing is going the way she wants it to. Henry has become distant and...more
I read Aimee Carter’s The Goddess Test last year in a few hours. Afterwards, I proceeded to read it a couple more times. Carter spoke to me through the Kate’s voice. I fell in love with the retelling and reinvention of who Henry represented, and all the emotions felt through Kate. Goddess Interrupted was a great follow-up. I laughed, I cried, and most importantly, I loved.
After a six-month vacation in Greece, Kate finally comes home to Henry. But instead of a great welcome...more
Last year Aimee Carter left me astounded when I read her debut novel The Goddess Test and now Goddess Interrupted is here and she has done it yet again. Goddess Interrupted is a captivating, intriguing and magical read – one that I managed to devour in 24 hours and I’m...more
And that ending- what was that!?
It wasn't as predictable as I thought.
I feel sorry for James, and Ava I know she would never have done what calliope claims. She's even loyal and a good friend. A friend that any girl hopes to have.
Despite all I really shockingly Like Pespherone, I think she'll be a good big sis.
(view spoiler)[ Pregnant.. I don't know about anyone else but that wasn't really how I thought it would go! And that was good.. because it made the en...more
WARNING: DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU ARE FEELING A SENSE OF LOSS, ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT "WHO YOU ARE" OR IF YOU ARE SIMPLY EMOTIONALLY UNSTABLE. IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS, PUT OFF READING THIS AS IT MAY RESULT IN BOUTS OF CRYING THAT LAST FOR CHAPTERS ON END.
I enjoyed but didn't love The Goddess Test and judging by some reviews of this installment, those who loved the first installment, weren't huge fans of this on...more
"If I were a better man, I would be able to show you the love and affection you deserve. As I am not, I can only offer you what I am capable of giving. But I assure you, just because I do not show it doesn't mean I do not feel it." - Henry to Kate
I did not love the first book, Goddess Test. Yeah, it was okay... I thought it had a tinge of originality and creativity, and the execution of the Greek myth better written than most supernatural young adult reads out there, but I wasn't totally cap...more
If you have not read The Goddess Test yet, I suggest you do so before reading this review. However, I will try to keep it as spoiler-free as possible.
Goddess Interrupted picks up six months after The Goddess Test left off. Kate is heading home from her six month say in Greece with her best friend, James. She’s expecting a warm welcome from her new husband Henry upon her return...more
Unfortunately Goddess Interrupted is another Holy Freaking Cliffhanger of a book. Fortunately it's worth the torture. It will leave the reader pining for the next installment. My advice, wait until book 3 is due to release to check this one out. No, really, wait. You'll be thanking me later. Since this is the second book in the series I do not recommend reading this book or review until you have read book 1, The Goddess Test (see my re...more

Pretty much everything plot related. I think this was an interesting turn of events. Kate be...more
But I rate this book 3.5 Stars. I really loved the first book and gave it 5 Stars. So I was kind of disappointed with this one. I liked the book, but there was somethings about the book that I didn't like. I liked where the plot went, but somethings weren't what I wanted.
-Henry was still Henry and I really liked that about him! He had some set backs, but he redeemed himself in my eyes :D I really like...more
Why did I hate it so much?
Carter's twisted creation of traditional mythology had me pulling my hair out. I wish I had never seen the list of gods or goddesses at the end of Book 1 because it totally ruined my perception of the characters in this book. I was seriously annoyed how she totally made them so uncharacteristic of who they are supposed to be. I had...more
The biggest problem with The Goddess Test was its bowdlerization of the Greek gods. Carter had rendered the gods nearly unrecognizable by making them believ...more
