Jessi (Novel Heartbeat) Can't wait to see what you think of it!

Helen Keeble Ooh, so jealous you've got this one already! Look forward to reading your review (not that you can make me change my mind about buying it, even if you reveal that it's 350 blank pages *grin*)

Lori Bummer! I'm sad about all the mixed reviews coming out on this one. I'm still going to read it, I'm just not as excited about it anymore. But I am glad that I've been prepared!


message 4: by Giselle (new)

Giselle I seem to be in the minority from what I saw, though, so hopefully you can enjoy it more than I did.

Giselle It seems like everyone else loved it, Sam, so there's a good chance it's just me haha. I just never got used to the weird dialogue and the pacing was a tad too slow for my taste - even though I usually enjoy slower paced gothic novels like Long Lankin. I'll be looking forward to your review!!


Jessi (Novel Heartbeat) Oh noes! I'm usually in the minority, too, and slow books lose my already infinitesimal attention span! I'll still read it but it definitely won't be anytime soon...


Donna {Book Passion for Life} I wasn't overly keen on this one either hun. The romance really annoyed me and still can't decide on a 2 star rating or 3. =(

♥Rachel♥ I hope I like this more than you and Donna, as I'm to be reading this soon. Eeeek. This might be a good thing though, because sometimes when I lower my expectations I actually enjoy the story more. Thanks for the honest and informative review, Giselle. :)

Giselle @Crystal: I know right? I totally saw most of it coming, and even what was unexpected wasn't very shocking. I'm guessing you didn't love it either? haha. The worst part for me were the character interactions. Some of it was just bizarre (view spoiler). Yah...

@Rachel: Lowering expectations works really often for me. And the fact that so many reviews so far have ben glowing on this one I was def. expecting too much.

@Donna: Sorry you didn't like it either. It would have been a 3 for me if it wasn't so drawn out. Even though the book is not physically long, I felt it was like 600 pages.

@Jessi: I hope you like it, Jessi. A lot of people do. And I see some people say it's fast paced so it may just be because I didn't like the characters that I found it slow moving, too.

Crystal No I did not care for it lol. I was actually okay with the dialogue by the end because it started to remind me of Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging and I love that series, but the story never went anywhere. I totally agree about the interactions (view spoiler)

Giselle @Crystal: Ha! All the same stuff bothered me too! The town name was just so annoying to read. For the first couple of pages I even wondered wtf they were talking about. I thought it was a formatting issue. I kid you not! (view spoiler) It's an even bigger mess than I remembered once I was done. I think I was forgetting as I was reading I just wanted it to be done with.


message 13: by Crystal (new)

Crystal LOL! I didn't think about it, but you are right it did look like a formatting issue! I am so glad this one is over. I am going to start Crewel today woohoo!


message 14: by Giselle (new)

Giselle Oooh I looved Crewel! I can't wait to see what you think! The world building in it blew my mind!


message 15: by Crystal (new)

Crystal So far I am really liking it! I am only about 50 pages in but this whole thread weaver thing is really intriguing me.


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

I wasn't overly fond of this one either, and I'm relieved to see I wasn't the only one. The biggest problem for me was the characters. They all sounded exactly alike! This happens a lot when the author uses a quirky voice. And the over use of (view spoiler) drove me up a wall.


message 17: by Brooke (new)

Brooke I feel the same way! So many good reviews and the plot sounded so good I just couldn't wait to read it, but I didn't connect to any of the characters and rather disliked the main character. I wouldn't call it a romance but more of an annoying mess.
