Read from December 10 to 18, 2011

For me, this book was just...meh, really. A little between 2.5 to 3 stars.

I liked the supernatural aspect, since it was pretty original. And the setting, Paris, was beautiful. But the problem is, that's really all I liked about it.

Because to me, besides the supernatural aspect and setting, this is such a typical YA book that doesn't really stand out from others. Kate was a very Mary Sue heroine, and Vincent was a typical, godly-looking hero, although I give Amy Plum bonus points for not making him a jackass. There's insta-love, but it wasn't annoying to the point where I wanted to pull all my hair out. But that doesn't mean I liked the romance, that only means I tolerated it.

I don't really have much else to say about this book. o_o It was just okay for me. Nothing amazing or special. It's one of those "why the hype" books, for sure.

I'm on the fence about this one.....not seeing too many good reviews.
