Chosen (House of Night #3)

All we read about is Zoey’s hormones getting pulled every which way with:
a) Human imprinted partner, Heath (who she intends breaking up with but instead has a hot ‘n’ heavy make-out session with)
b) Erik, her handsome fledgling boyfriend (who she wants to come clean with about her roaming eye but instead ends up having hot ‘n’ heavy make-out sessions with)
c) Loren Blake, temporary teacher ...more
Down points of the novel are that every guy is described as being exactly the same. They're all perfectly gorgeous without a flaw or even different personalities. The homosexual characters are flat stereotypes. And, having a young adult book in wh ...more
I really hate giving bad reviews but this book truly disgusted me. I am really disappointed in P.C. and Kristin Cast. I mean honestly, do they think that all teenagers act like this because if they do, they need a reality check.
Love triangles are overused but I can admit, that some writers can really do it well. This love square thing Zoey had going on was ridiculous. I mean, come on? When I read about the teacher suddenly popping up in the picture, I was so grossed out. I mean, usu ...more
Η πλοκή είναι προβληματική. Πολλές φορές η ηρωίδα μας διηγείται τα ίδια και τα ίδια, ενώ η γραφή είναι εξ’ ολοκλήρου ανώριμη.
Αυτό συμβαίνει και με τους χαρακτήρες, οι οποίοι είναι προχειρογραμμένοι και μη αληθοφανείς. Η μοναδική αληθοφάνεια που έχουν είναι ο παλιμπαιδισμός τους, καμία σχέση με νέους 17 ετών, κάτι τέτοιες βλακείες λέγαμε στα δώδεκα. Και όχι μόνο αυτό, αλλά είναι γραμμένοι και από ανώριμο συγγραφικά χέρι, ο Θεός να φυλάει…Κοπελιά δεν είσαι κου ...more
Disclaimer: Obviously, I'm not Zoey Redbird or PC or Kristin Cast (God help me if I was one of them). I am merely using the character to illustrate my deep hatred for these books and why you should get drunk or at least get a sugar high off of them.
This is Zoey Redbird (yes, I know I'm amazing you can like totally stop clapping now).
I'm upset that people are using my series to get drunk. Seriously, you can't understand how amazing it is. That I am like the ...more
Not so clean: Alright, so Loren Blake is possessive as fuck. He had controlled her. Cut himself and made her drink (not that she didn't want to) and then CUT HER and drank from her.... Yeah, and then was like, "Now let's finish the Imprint. Let's make love!" I was so disgusted... I literally can't even on how fucking vomit-provoking that scene was. I have read about sex, but this was all sorts of different. Loren Blake was, in ...more
(view spoiler)[What part of having sex with a teacher is right? (hide spoiler)]
Not that that is a big surprise *rolls eyes*
Zoey is a Mary Sue. She is. How many guys are after her? I have lost count. Whatever she does she is always forgiven and hardly gets hurt. Everyone wants to be Zoey's boyfriend or friend because she is sooooo popular and everyone can relate to her. The only character I liked was Neferet and even then she's useless at destroying Zoey. To think tha ...more
That is probably the real reason I continue to read this series. I would like to see how much worse it can get. I never thought I would read a more poorly written story than Jean Auel's The Shelters Of Stone, which read like a NaNoWriMo novel that never got fleshed out. But I was wrong. This series is full of annoying characters, half-baked plot ideas, and badly ...more
"You're not like anyone else," I whispered to my reflection. Then I cleared my throat and continued in an overly perky voice. "And it's okay not to be like anyone else." I rolled my eyes at myself. "Whatever."
When I first started on the House of Night series back in January, I was warned by a friend that, while the first two books were indeed terrible, they had nothing on the third, Chosen. So, after reading Marked and Betrayed, I couldn't possibly believe my friend's words. How could it get w ...more
Yes, I know you're a teenager, Zoey, and yes, I know the plot requires some stupidity on your ...more
First off, it's so badly written it makes me want to pull my hair out. The immature, inane dialogue is so stupid and ridiculous, it makes me feel embarrassed for the writer, who is obviously trying way to hard to sound like a cool teenager, when in fact, it makes her sound the way Drew Bar ...more
In fact, we could probably quote whole sections of complaints from our reviews of books one and two, and they'd be able to apply to Chosen, as well. It wouldn't just be in "spirit", either - the book seems content to recycle whole chunks of earlier books, bigo ...more
What I enjoyed the most about this particular book in the series was that for the first time, in ...more
The issues I had with the slut shaming that was gradually appearing in the last two books have been pushed squarely into the light here.
I don't know what I am supposed to think. Am I supposed to agree with Zoey, and believe that any expression of sexual lust makes you a ho? And if that is the case, Zoey herself is the biggest 'ho' in this book.
What I want to be told, is ho ...more
A lot happens in the 3rd House of Night book, and it all only takes course over a few days. I found myself becoming annoyed with Zoey more in this book; she is making a lot of basic mistakes that people in books/movies/TV shows always make. And just like every other character, her mistakes pile up, they're found out, and she falls hard.
During this series, I have spent a lot of time thinking about the phrase "the path to hell is paved wit ...more
Instead of getting worse, I'm finding that this series is getting better. I don't know if it's because the writing is getting better, or it's because I'm just getting used to it. But, despite my better judgement, I actually liked this book better than its predecessors.
The drama was way more engaging, the characters more interesting. I feel like more things were explained, & things are starting to take shape.
Personally, my favorite part is that Zoey, the main character ...more
Of course that has to take a back seat to her constant conflict over three different love interests.
The People of Faith also seem to have decided they hate vampires, but, really the love interests are way more important
My suffering continues thanks to the cruel machinations of Cyna and Mavrynthia and Merriska and I continue to battle through this series
However, now I can be ...more
