Hmmmmmm look at what I’m reading… Ignore the stupid title and clichéd series name. And the perverted cover. Geez there are lots of things that would make a person avoid reading this. I’m not sure why I picked it. Oh wait.

Muahahaha I couldn’t help myself!

Well well… What can I say about this Awaken Me Darkly? It’s mostly typical UF to my entire disappointment. I like a good UF as any cool and important person but my dear Huntress of Aliens is not the most special kid in class. The story is mediocre BUT, and that’s a big butt, I’m fascinated by Gena’s writing style and Mia’s badass level. She’s a pro I tell you. Plus the white haired hottie is a bonus. Guess my sci-fi mood will shift into painting sci-fi guys with white hair and violet eyes. Gah I’m so predictable!



Before you poke my eyes out with a spork I know this is NOT UF. Heh, actually…. Funny story there. Let me tell you how I got to think this is f*cking UF… And how I found out it isn’t…

So that’s my story… Pretty gruesome huh? ….. What I would give for a machinegun right now…

Aaanywhore, I’ve been judging the book as an UF and since the misunderstanding raped my mind I’ll take a star from its score. Because I’m cruel, that’s why!

Mrs. Showalter, I wanted less of this

And more of this

So I would appreciate if you make the future books cooler.

Peace out!

Dija Looking forward to what you think of it, since it seems both interesting and cliched from the synopsis and I'm not sure I wanna read it. XD

Anzu The Great Destroyer I also wasn't sure but I'm having an alien sci-fi something mood so I said what the hell. It seems great btw. Gena Showalter's writing style is awesome :D

message 3: by Dija (new)

Dija I haven't read anything of hers, so I can't say anything about her style, but if you happen to enjoy it, I might look into it in the future. :)

Anzu The Great Destroyer I'm done with it and it was mediocre. I'm going to read book two in order to see if the story picks up or not :p

message 5: by Dija (new)

Dija I'm still not motivated about starting this book, so I'll be waiting for what you think of the second one before seriously considering reading this one. :D

Aly is so frigging bored I wanna read the review :D

Anzu The Great Destroyer Well I just finished it so I'll probably post it in a few minutes :p

message 8: by Dija (new)

Dija LOL, OMG, this review is PRICELESS! I'm still recovering from that last image. XD

Aly is so frigging bored Oh GOD =))))))))))))

Anzu The Great Destroyer O.O It was cruel!!! It broke my dreams!!! :((((

Aly is so frigging bored :)) I think from book 3 it's 3rd person narrative :D that way you'll not get ideas :D

message 12: by Anzu (new) - rated it 2 stars

Anzu The Great Destroyer Yeah? She finally got the picture right? :)))

message 14: by Anzu (new) - rated it 2 stars

Anzu The Great Destroyer Not mean :D but it gets confusing and it bothers me :D

message 15: by Brittany B. (new)

Brittany B. I haven't read this, but I do like LOTU.
Regardless it's funny when you hate a book. You once responded to my comment with "well I don't hate it that bad." Lofl. And Aly is your opposite. It makes me smile!

Anzu The Great Destroyer Ok, I fixed the image size problem. I hate Goodreads for doing this to me..

Uhm... It's cheesy and I hate cheesy books :/ I was looking for something interesting and this is NOT interesting :p Yeah Aly is all pink and flowery and nice and I'm black and mean.


Sorry I couldn't help myself from making the joke :p

message 17: by Flail (new)

Flail Around zomg I laughed for like a good 5 minutes over the first part of your review. That guy's hair from Ancient Aliens always makes me crack up so much.. and I just wasn't expecting it on GR and wow. Ok. Now I'm babbling. Great review!

Anzu The Great Destroyer The Aliens Guy is amazing. I've been dying to use him in one of my reviews >:p

Brittany B. Holy shit. Sorry, I'm cursing. I was reading the latest comments and went up to see the pictures at the end. I guess they didn't load when I first read this review.
That sh*t is funny as hell! The star wars pic is absolutely priceless. And I would LOVE it if you were in my closet tonight.

So I'm curious how you feel about smexy books. I don't think you like super steamy books. Am I wrong?
I think Aly and I are more perverted in our reading... So she's not all flowers and sunshine... :) and youre not mean, you're funny.

Aly is so frigging bored She is mean in a funny way :))

This summer I am reading eroticas, all kind :d kinky, pnr, menage, u name it!

Aly is so frigging bored Wanna experiment with me?

message 23: by Brittany B. (new)

Brittany B. Yes. I already have a list... :)

Aly is so frigging bored Is it one of your shelvs? If not PM me with it :d

message 25: by Brittany B. (new)

Brittany B. I will pm you.

Anzu The Great Destroyer Aly you need to get laid.

It's not that I don't like these books. They bore me :/ They are repetitive and idiotic :p

I'd rather live the sex than read it :>

Aly is so frigging bored Beggars can't be choosers love. And unfortunately I have standards :D they aren't met with the current make population I know so,... no chance in hell it happening anytime soon :D

message 28: by Brittany B. (new)

Brittany B. Well I am engaged, no issues with getting laid. Maybe I'm depraved.. :)

Aly is so frigging bored You tell her Brittany :))

message 30: by Brittany B. (last edited Jul 04, 2012 01:38AM) (new)

Brittany B. I like reading sex and having it. But I wasn't always that into smexy books. Pleasure Unbound was the changing point... GR friends talked me into reading it. It was so decadently sexy AND so damn good. I have been chasing the depraved dragon ever since!

Anzu The Great Destroyer Well after having both sides of the plate I decided that one of them isn't good enough anymore :>
