Okay here we go! Considering how many 4 and 5 stars this as well as the previous book has got, I thought this would be one hell of a ride! Unfortunately for me this was quite an okay book. Light, time-pass read, nothing really exhilarating.

Sophie and Kai are supposed to stop Jack(Hermes) from going further with Bethany's campaign. And they have to fall in love with each other and try to keep their hands to themselves (hit my the love arrow!) Anyways add a little extra romance into it since now

Remember Greek mythology? Well then… imagine most of the gods and goddesses are teens.

Yes, I know, we know this already from My Ex From Hell, the first book in the trilogy, but it’s just that we meet so many more of them culprits in this book.

Teenage Greek mythology is nothing new, right? Right. Now add Darling’s sassy writing to this premise and you’re in for a treat.

In all seriousness, Darling is pretty much the only YA author I’ve read that gets her teens to sound and behave like teens. Plus,
I reread My Ex From Hell before reading Date and absolutely loved being back in this world with these characters. Sophie's inner monologue is one of the best out there and coupled with her awesome friends, Date was a lot of fun.


Sophie: The snark is strong with this one and it's one of my favorite attributes of Sophie's. She does struggle with the memory of Persephone, or more that she struggles with everyone else remembering someone that she doesn't know. To me, that just made her more rela

So, I love Greek Mythology, so when I read what this one was about I was raising my hand begging, please let me read this one. And score, I got to read My Ex From Hell as well, ya’ know since they are part of a trilogy and all?

Oh my. I didn’t know what kind of goodness I was getting myself into, but let me tell you, it is awesome. So, this book picks up right where the first one left off, and jumps in with a bang.

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Can Tellulah Darling do what so many authors fail to do -- write a stellar sequel that matches (or surpasses) a first book in a series? The answer is yes, yes she can. I've been waiting to read this book since the moment I put the first one down. I'm a sucker for a Hades/Persephone story and this is definitely one of my favorites. So why did I wait so long to pick it up? Because, I am dumb, that's why. Sometime

You all know how much I loved My Ex From Hell. To say I was impatient to read what happened next is an understatement. I couldn't wait and I had really high expectations. I'm happy to say My Date From Hell does not disappoint.

I was so excited to start reading the sequel to My Ex from Hell, it was totally worth the wait! I had no idea how Tellulah Darling was going to improve on the first book, but boy oh boy, she surprised me to no end. From the get go, with a recap of the previous book aptly titled The Cheat Sheet to my Life Thus Far, laughs abound in this fantasy adventure novel.

If you’ve enjoyed the first book, you’ll love My Date from Hell. That I can assure you. The plot moves at an incredible pace and the story

My Date From Hell starts off from the ending of My Ex From Hell, and just like what I had expected, it begun with snarks from our dearest Sophie. She was still feisty as ever, along with her friends who were very supportive of her.

Unfortunately, I didn't like it as much as I had hoped.
Don't get me wrong -- I thought it was okay. But truth be told, the only thing letting me give this book a 3-star rating was Festos. I LOVED THAT GUY. He was perhaps one of the few reasons why I had kept reading a

Sophie’s life is never going to get back to normal. After that fateful kiss from Kai that unlocked her true self (AKA Persephone) and battling a dragon, you think poor Soph could catch a break. Nope, not yet. Zeus and Hades are more determined than ever to find (and destroy) the ritual location, so Sophie needs Persephone’s memories more than anything. The only catch is to unlock those, she must go on a mission for Aphrodite to p

Sigh. This series. IS SO MUCH FUN! I love it! I have been closed to review requests because I am drowning in all the books, but when Tellulah contacted me to read this I was like 'Oh heck yes.' I missed Sophie and crew so it was awesome to pick back up with them to find out what was in store for them next! And whew! Poor girl can't seem to get a break!

“Love, apparently, really was a battlefield.”–Sophie

The good news: Sophie finally gets to meet her dad. The bad news? He’s Zeus, and he’s ready to torture her for information that she doesn’t have. Well, technically she does have it; she just can’t remember it. Getting Persephone’s memories are the key to making sure she–and all of humanity–stays alive. No pressure. And that’s just the first step in saving the world. Step two? Be in love with the oh-so infuriating prince of darkness, Kai…

Just when I was convinced that 2013 is cursed with the second book syndrome, Darling managed to not only produce a good second novel. NO! She did better! Because I liked My Date from Hell quite a bit more than My Ex from Hell. I found myself snickering over witty banter and being totally absorbed in the story.

At the end of My Ex from Hell we left Sophie at the mercy of her father Zeus, with whom she is not on the best of terms, to put it mildly. It was a major cliffhanger, and thankfully we go pretty much straight into the action at the start of this book. Zeus wants to know h
