Read from February 24 to 25, 2012

Oh! Gosh how can I explain this? Well the book isn't Horrible, but it isn't the best read. The book did not get interesting until more than half of the book was read. I only didn't give up cause I just knew deep down it would end really good! I was hoping for that really, really hard... Well the last 80 or so pages were good. Makes me wonder why I didn't skip through it like I had thought to. The ending pissed me off! Now as I said before its not a horrible book just boring in the beginning an this world, this world were love is forbidden confused me cant quite put it into words except that it was too unbelievable for me however the book is over and since I hate starting something and not finishing it, making it all the way to the end e.i completely this book. Ms. Oliver was very successful and has roped me in. I need to get the second installment I need to know what happens maybe the second book will redeem this one I don't really know but I can't just NOT finish the series kind of an OCD thing of mine. So I'll rope someone into buying it for me or perhaps I will finally get myself a library card in my new city and rent it out. Who knows! Will I recommend this novel that's a BIG IDK!

I feel the rest of the book my be rushed now because the 1st half was a bore that now all the action resistance, falling in love, and heartbreak will be smushed into it somehow. Honestly I hope so ( I hope thats nit a bad thing to say)"

April I've read about 150 pgs and I'm ready to call it quits. I'm. So. Bored.
