Elise Hmm..looks good.


Carla *Jen7waters* It does, but to be honest I'm...not liking it that much :/


message 3: by Elise (new)

Elise Darn..you think you'll finish it? :(


Carla *Jen7waters* I think I'll finish it, but it won't be a pleasant ride. :/


message 5: by Jenny (new)

Jenny Q Oh darn! I had high hopes for this one!


Carla *Jen7waters* I was hoping it would be good as well, but until this point it's a Twilight copycat (minus the vampires & the werewolves). Also the writing is doing nothing for me. :s

Quigui Dear God, it sound really awful - damn pretty covers that lead you to this book


Carla *Jen7waters* It's awful...awful...

Pretty covers will be the death of me. (º_º)

Mafi que pena acho que tmb vou lê-lo já, senão fica a apanhar pó na estante e perco o desejo de ler.


Carla *Jen7waters* Lê Mafalda, lê...até podes gostar, quem sabe!


message 11: by Mafi (new)

Mafi eu gostei do Twilight :P

Catarina "p7" Que desgraça de livro. As críticas negativas aqui no GR são uma autêntica festa. xD

Ao menos o meu "crapdar" para livros está a afinar-se. Este livro pareceu-me... não interessante, só pela sinopse. A menção na sinopse a um triângulo amoroso ou uma frase como "she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRís" sufoca-me a vontade de ler tal livro.

Elise It does really sound like twilight. :(


Carla *Jen7waters* @Mafalda eu também gostei do primeiro livro e do segundo da saga Twilight (se a memória não me falha acho que lhes dei 3 estrelas), e é em parte por isso que este livro também é ofensivo, porque é um copy-paste. Um Twilight já chega. :/


Carla *Jen7waters* @p7 pois são! xD são de chorar a rir algumas! É muito mau...e nem foi preciso triângulo amoroso, pelo menos até à parte em que eu parei de ler não havia um, porque se há, ugh, parei de ler mesmo a tempo. Eu quando encomendei este livro nem havia sinopse ainda (tinha em pre-order há nnnn), depois esqueci-me dele até há bem pouco tempo, mas continuava a achar uma boa compra porque tinha uma capa bonita e um título apelativo, mas, O HORROR. A minha única consolação é que foi super barato, na altura comprei-o com um daqueles vouchers de desconto do BD, e nem 4 euros paguei por ele. xD


Carla *Jen7waters* @Elise I couldn't even finish it, Elise. :/ And it's not because it's a Twilight copy, but because it's a copy. How awful!


message 17: by Elise (new)

Elise ugh! Yeah, don't waste your time. There are too many other good books to read.


message 18: by Catarina "p7" (new)

Catarina "p7" Quando falei em ler sobre um triângulo numa sinopse, estava a falar de livros em geral, não deste. Era muito mau se este arranjasse um Jacob Black para copiar ainda mais o Crepúsculo. xD

Bem, ao menos não gastaste muito dinheiro nele. Mas é mesmo aborrecido ter expectativas acerca dum livro e ele ser assim tão mau. :/


message 19: by Ana (new)

Ana This really sounds awful from your review. :( I wasn't really intersted before, but now I'm pretty sure I won't read it. It sounds soooo boring and copy-cat(y). Bleh!
And that part about reproducing with his sister ... O.O


message 20: by Mafi (new)

Mafi Ai já "li" li pela diagonal pois o livro é mesmo muito muito muito muito mau! É uma cópia do twilight, o livro devia chamar-se "The Copy of Twilight" XD e os diálogos? Horriveis, personagens sem química nenhuma e falas sem sentido! Enfim...vale pela capa.


message 21: by Esther (new)

Esther probably my favorite part of your review "it sounded to me like he was saying: it’s either with you or with my sister"


Carla *Jen7waters* ahah! xD


Vanessa *Bluest Ribbon* This book sounds exactly like Twilight. Thanks to this review, I now know which book to avoid.


Carla *Jen7waters* @Vanessa I'm glad my review helped! :)


message 25: by B (new)

B Nevin If you read on or read it right you'd know that Adam and Megan CAN'T have children together. Infact the problem is that they CAN'T be together.


Carla *Jen7waters* God help me. No way I'll read it on (I don't even have it anymore -- I gave it away). I'm sorry if my review offended you but this book & its author are a NO NO for me.


message 27: by EEP (new)

EEP Your review cracked me up because I felt the same way about the Twilight correlation! You forgot some more similarities... The Cullens, I mean, De Ris's, are all devastatingly attractive, there are rumors about the family and their strangeness, Edward/Adam is at her water accident before anyone else is able to get to her, though he was in a boat farher way, Adam/Edward eats lunch with her group rather than always with his family, and they become an insta-couple as soon as he admits that he cant stop thinking of her/ stay away from her.


message 28: by ☆∞Love (new)

 ☆∞Love Frances∞☆ I did not like it either. I was pissed I bought it. I was so excited for it. I think I read 3 or 4 chapters. Its a total DNF.


message 29: by Janae (new)

Janae From reading all these reviews I kind of want to read it, like a sick part of myself want to torture me just to see all the similarities of this book and twilight. I don't know if anyone else agrees with me, you probably don't, but I want to read it for fun now and play maybe a little bit of I spy. Because I don't think I could read this seriously, now I'm just going to have to read it all in good nature. But this ALL DEPENDS on how easy I'm going to get this book, if it means I have to pay money or go to a library I won't even try. Yes I know that just sounded incredibly lazy and I accept that I can be a lazy person ESPECIALLY if the book is not even going to be good. Well wish me luck!

Good luck, friend! I really can't recommend this one, it's eye roll after eye roll, but who knows, maybe you'll have fun with it. ;)


message 31: by Idalis (new)

Idalis Calderon I didn't see it from that perspective, but now I definitely do. I'm on page 242 and I can't go on any further. SHE BARELY KNOWS THE GUY and she thinks they were meant for each other and vice versa! I hate how Fallon rushed them into a relationship even though she never actually interacted with him. I bothers me so much! It's not even cute anymore. So done with this book.
