Jessica Not for me. I could have read some really well-written fiction instead of wasting my time on this. I'd advise you to look elsewhere.

This book is just awkward. The writing is stilted and the heroine is a puppet the author moves around on strings of impulse. None of the characters have any obvious motivations, come to think of it. The step-father hates her just because. The younger brother is sadly wise in a disconnected way just because. The friendly roommate helps her just because. The president of the school puts her on probation just because. The vampire representative hopes she fails just because.

And her decision to stay

You know how sometimes you think, let me sit on the couch, do something productive like read or send my nana an email, and hours later, look up from the Wikipedia article about the oldest pub in Europe you were reading on your smartphone and hate-think 'Oh My God, what a waste of time! I hate myself.'?

This is exactly how I felt reading Paranormal Public.

Paranormal Public by Maddy Edwards is about yet another sullen 'gifted' teenager who gets whisked off to a special college for paranormal creatu

Ok I couldn't finish this.... :-(

In all fairness, I read the blurb and got so freakin excited... a pure adrenaline rush! I thought.... Harry Potter as an adult! YES!

But this isn't it.

And that's why I think you should at least check out the sample versus taking my complete word on this...

I got to 25% and stopped reading.

I didn't connect with the main character.

I was mad it wasn't freaking awesome like Harry Potter (which isn't fair...)

I thought that the main characters materialization to the Para

Whilst this is far from being the best read I have ever picked up, it was certainly addictive. In fact, it was way more addictive than I had anticipated it to be.

It reads a lot like every other young-adult urban fantasy book out there. We have the academy for the paranormal teenagers. We have a main character with a sob story of a backstory. We have the special snowflake aspect. It is something that has been done before, and yet I found myself unable to put it down. In many ways, if this kind of

This book.... mehhh
It was like a sad wannabe Hogwarts.
Charlotte's relationships are wonky.
The whole plot of the book was so obvious that I was surprised at how confused and in the dark all the characters seemed to be.
Despite all its flaws it was still pretty entertaining. It was a quick easy read that I didn't really have to put any energy into thinking about. I know some people want every book to be deep and complex but sometimes you just want your mind to chill in space.
I liked it and thought

This was a good value read. Although some of the scenes were definitely not very new, and somewhat predictable it remains a good story.

The characters were particularly diverse and likable, with a good range of differing attitudes and personality.

I shall be happy to go on to the next novel in the series. Currently sitting at 5 books.

This book, despite its length, was actually a very quick and entertaining read. Yes the setting is once again in a college, and yes we seem to have that everywhere at the moment, but this story seems to have a little more depth. The characters are unique and easy to connect with, and therefore makes this story, in my personal opinion... different.

As well as unique, the characters are likeable, and of course we have a forbidden love theme going on too, which I happen to LOVE! We also read about

I couldn't make it more than the first two chapters. The MC is just way too annoying. She accepts things way too easily. Guy shows up who she hasn't seen in over a year and all of a sudden is walking her home. Oh that's normal. Weird mist swirling around her? Oh that's normal. She's told she's a mage and her mother was a mage. Well that must be true because of this early childhood memory of her mother telling her such. GOD THINK FOR YOUSELF! I just can't. It feels like it was written by a teenag ...more

Do I? Don't I? Do I? Don't I? Up and down up and down. One minute I'm loving it the next not so much. Is the main character, Charlotte, awesome? or just annoying?...I don't know. I loved the supporting characters though and I really liked Charlotte's little brother even if he only made a couple of short appearances.
