Read from August 05 to 20, 2010

Well I finished it...ish. I stopped reading at the 301st page because the story started to drag and the whole this started to feel false. It felt like the author, Abra Ebner, was trying waaaay to much to be like Stephenie Meyer--not that I have anything against Stepheneie. I love the Twilight Saga and this that it's an amazing literary peice, she's one of my favourite authors, but this is just the reason why I don't like Stephenie's book as much as I used to. Why her books have gone from "AMAZING, THERE'LL NEVER BE A BOOK AS GOOD AS THIS ONE EVER AGAIN," to, "OH, I'VE READ LOTS OF BOOKS LIKE THIS ONE." Why???? The reason is no fault of S.Meyer's, definatly. She wrote a really good book that other authors obviously thought that they could COPY and without making their own book look CLICHE and did EXACTLY THAT!!!
So, sorry Ebner but I really hate that you ruined a book and an amazing plot by Twilight-fying it. And you not only ruined your own book, you ruined someone else's book and just ticked off a girl who made her dad order this book who was misguided and thought that this was actually something different.
It really sounds harsh, sorry! But it's what I have to say. My opinion...
Unlike some people.
*coughcough* Abra Ebner!!!! *coughcough*

However I didn't think Wes was one to kiss out of sympathy.
If Jane finds out then this is going to crush her. I think somewhere in her mind she wants him but she's coonditioned herself to believe that she can't have bonds as strong as that."

Jane is all to oblivious tp everything that's going on outside her little bubble of problems.
Yes, Emily certainly doesn't deal with her problems in the best way either. But her intent is good, or at least better than Janes.
She wants to get away from it all without other having to see the real her, pitying her.
Max can help her. He's the only one who really gets her."

When that bubble around her finally bursts I'm sure she'll go running right back to Wes.
I can't understand how she could be so cold towards Wes in the first place, how could she have led him on like that?"

69.0% "The author of this book must've gotten bored after a while (the first couple of pages) and decided that it was alright to plagarise with a little (through the whole story).
I'm sorry but when I first read about this I felt like it really had a lot of great potential; now I just feel like the author's being lazy and trying to copy a couple of vampire books...
Even Em and Wes have started to disappoint me."
