I am totally ashamed of myself.

When I started reading this book, I swore it was a book that couldn’t pique my fancy. I was overly bored and couldn’t flip anymore pages. I thought the writing was for too-young adults. I thought I would be generous and give it two stars.

But dang, I am eating what I said.

Betrayed (House of Night #2) by P.C and Kristin Cast started out slow, but, somewhere in the middle, I began liking the book. I can’t point to the exact page, but somewhere, things were becoming interesting. Despite the mediocre writing, the plot, I admit is good. I actually think of the authors as brave for having straying so much from the vampire norms.

Zoey Redbird, is still likable for me. She always has the best interests of everyone is heart. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t fail trying. Despite being advanced for a fledgling, she’s still struggling to maintain normalcy. She just wants to fit in. And experience the same stuff other normal teenagers do. Probably having a little boylet, here and there. Despite her having three love interests, I don’t take it against her. I even wish I had three boylets hunkering over me. But dah, I’m no Zoey Redbird.

Anyway, this book makes me want to pick up the next one, as in now. I’ve betrayed myself. I swore it couldn’t pick my fancy, but now, karma’s eating at me.
