I'm gonna be honest, I'm a little bitch.

I got more than halfway through this I'm pretty sure, and it was good. It was really fantastic. I loved the humor and the character depth and I loved that I wasn't reading from the point of view of a spoiled rotten white girl. This book has everything going for it, and it's not the books fault this was DNF for me.

I'm just a little bitch

There was a reason I lost motivation to finish. (view spoiler)
Brennan seems like a clever unconventional writer who's ready to fuck shit up and differentiate from the typical YA PRN Romance cliches. Which is great. I admire that. I think she's a fantastic writer and the kind of creative mind the genre needs to save it from being a bunch of bullshit.

but thats the thing. I like the bullshit. I like fluffy happy ending books that don't make sense.

So yes, this book is exceptionally good for it's genre and has potential to be an addicting series. But I just have shit taste.

Please read this series so I don't have to.

37.0% "At this point, I'm seriously worried that Jared and Kami aren't meant to be canon. I mean, in any other YA book, it would be absolutely laughable for the two main male and female characters to not end up together, but Brennan seems to be shredding every cliche there is ATM..."

38.0% "Literally the only other person I could possibly ship Kami with is Rusty. I don't like Ash at all, and all the other guys don't have any relevance to the story. (Yes I know there are much more important things to a book (especially one this good) than who're the main couple but seriously this is bothering me and i'm losing sleep over it. (it's 6:30 am and i haven't slept yet))"
