I read this book because I was positive I wasn't going to like it. Which is odd, I'll admit, but I have a thing for ridiculous books. I'm not saying this book wasn't a tad ridic, because it was predictable as hell and what's the word I'm looking for... fluffy? When I think about this book I see a cute fuzzy pink bunny.

Evie was pretty likable, but a bit too quirky in a cool way for somebody who basically lived in a modern version of a cave pretty much all her life. But her fashion sense sucks. Zebra print dress and pink boots? Seriously? Ouch, my eyes! I don't really get the whole OMG!PINK obsession, I skipped that phase when I was growing up. I'm 27 right now, and in my entire life, I've owned (and still do) exactly one item of pink clothing. And I've worn it like, twice.

I'm pretty sure all of you are familiar with "Tasey". Well... To be honest, this is what comes to mind whenever the name popped up. I don't know why, probably because it's completely ridiculous to give your taser such a silly name. If you are going to name it, then make it sound cool, like The Shocker or Lightning, or whatever. Anything is better than Tasey. I can't even say it out loud without a way too high sounding voice.

And then there's Reth. I love his full name, Lorethan, and that's where I'm drawing my big fat pink crayon line. He's creepy, I hated his crap about wanting to fill Evie (seriously, try saying that out loud with a straight face to someone) and I hope his 'new' name will be something in the lines of Paco, or some other typical pimp name. Oh and trust me, he is a pimp, he started carrying a cane around after he reinvented himself.

Last but not least: Lend. I adore him. He's sweet, cute and whenever I think of him I want to hug somebody. (work will be interesting tomorrow).

I didn't like the ending for some reason. It's probably just me, but half of the time I was scratching my head and thinking 'whut?'. I think I figured it out eventually XD

I am reading the sequel. Yes, I am. *nods fiercely*

Kim I'm positive I won't love this, but I really need a few are-you-kidding-me moments to cheer myself up.

Unintentionally funny books usually do the trick.


Jessica Yeah, probably not...
Hope it'll cheer you up at least a little bit :-)

My screen = like staring at the sun (I'm not kidding), so it could be me.

You forgot about the eyes! They're so lovely and kind...

Lucky for him that he dumped me during summer time. Otherwise I would have made a coat out of him...

Kim Yup, Peta will be all over my ass by tomorrow morning.

Which reminds me... Oh Peeta... ♥


Jessica Hmm Peeta...*sighs happily and gets that dreamy look on her face* ♥
Peeta's cut from the same cloth as Seth...Unfortunately both guy's are just too good to be true...

Alexa Peeta!


message 27: by Morgan (new) - added it

Morgan F I saw a random girl in my math class reading Mockingjay today. It took all my willpower not to burst out the ending to her. Instead her and I fangirled about Peeta


message 28: by Alexa (new) - added it

Alexa *fangirls*



message 29: by Stefanie (new) - added it

Stefanie Haha, Jessica is just into hairy men...it's okay, we all have our own preferences ;)

And when it comes to fangirling...when I see someone pick up The Hunger Games or City Of Bones or some other fantasmic book and I can see them hesitating...I can't help but intrude on their thought process and CONVINCE/BRAINWASH them into getting it.
I <3 Peeta...swoooooon.

That title sounds really naughty, I like it!


message 37: by Morgan (last edited Oct 20, 2010 02:46AM) (new) - added it

Morgan F That's because the word "mistress" is in it. Everytime I hear that word my mind goes automatically to fishnets.


Jessica You've got a dirty little mind Morgan ;-)

But I agree, the word implies fishnets...and a whip ^^


~Tina~ ...and handcuffs.


message 40: by Kim (new) - rated it 4 stars

Kim ...and thigh-high stiletto boots.


message 41: by Morgan (new) - added it

Morgan F ....and a corset.


message 42: by Kim (new) - rated it 4 stars

Kim I love those ♥


~Tina~ Not moi. I'm a fan of breathing.


Jessica Breathing? Totally overrated ;-)


message 45: by Kim (new) - rated it 4 stars

Kim I can breathe just fine while wearing one ^^


~Tina~ Wore one on my wedding day. Never wanted a piece of clothing off so much in my entire life!


message 47: by Kim (new) - rated it 4 stars

Kim I'm strapping myself in one of those babies if I ever decide to take that road XD


~Tina~ Just make it blue and your set to go!


message 49: by Morgan (new) - added it

Morgan F Did you know their is a trend where people are piercing their backs to look laced up by corsets? Its gross.


~Tina~ That's just sick.
