I wont pretend to know you very well, but from what I do know I'll be Shocked if I'm wrong about how I think you will feel about this book. I look forward to hearing either way

Megan Ah! Now I am curious :) Well... I've been away from the computer for a few days, and actually just finished the book this morning ~ and I really enjoyed it. Not as good as, say Unearthly or super original, but so much better than a lot of YA that is PR/UF. Have you read this yet? Off to check your reivew if you have :)

Ok well, I am shocked then. I guessed that you would not go for the silliness of the girl, I forget her name.

Tatiana This book is my book club's June pick. I dread reading it. Glad to know you did not hate it, Megan.

Megan Yeah, Evie's silliness was a bit over the top. You are right though, that thing does kinda bug me ;) But there were so many good aspects to this story ~ I agree with you, a five star books are flawless, and four star are special ~ but this one I think merits almost four stars simply because in the YA PR/UF market it is one of the better ones. So far. If she doesn't mature a bit, the series has the potential to go downhill or become stale.

Kate is right though Tatiana ~ the protag is super young and kinda reminds me of Rainbow Mac. Actually, a lot of this book reminds me of lots of other UF/PR. You can tell Kiersten White has been heavily influenced by current authors. However, there are a lot of good things about it. I'm totally looking forward to your review :)

Galla I found this one just plain fun. It was fast, funny, and actually quite charming in spots. Glad you liked it!

message 8: by Megan (new)

Megan Galla, you're right ~ it's not the best, but it is fun and very charming for sure :)

message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

lol, Rainbow Mac! :)
Your optimism for seeing Evie mature in future novels comforts me, for some reason I suppose I hadn't even thought of that as a possibility.
I'll also look forward to Tatiana's review on this one. :)

Kristy I enjoyed this one, but also apprehensive about book #2..... The "pinkness" got to me though!!!! (not in a good way)

message 11: by Megan (new)

Megan lol ~ yeah, her love of pink was a little over the top. I couldn't picture her pink boots and what, zebra? lepord print? dress. I'm not a conservative dresser, but that outfit seemed way crazy and not as cute as she made it sound.

Kristy In the words of andre leon talley, total dretitude! Thats right I just referenced americas next top model, I hate myself for liking that show!

message 13: by Megan (new)

message 14: by Kristy (new)

Kristy I just love the pictures... I cant help myself!!!
