Taneika Edit: Still don't condone the behaviour of the agent to a reviewer from a couple of years ago.

Poor Wendy Darling.

Here is the tweet screen cap

sabrina Wow, I never even saw that thing with the agent until now. Thats terrible! And her and the author tweeting on twitter about getting people to rate it five stars... I can't. How unprofessional.

Femke Bals In the next books there will be some (quite big) changes to things you talked about here. The last book is way better than the first one, in my opinion. There's changed so much by then, I cried my eyeballs out like 7 times in these books. Totally worth it tho :P

Lily Oh my goodness I had no idea. That is unbelievably atrocious.

Cal (Constant Raving Reviews) I adore this review so much- I've never enjoyed sarcasm like this before

Kirra I know, I thought I wouldn't like it when I first picked it up but here I am waiting for the fifth book in the series to come out. It hooked itself into me deeply!

Olivia This is literally a collection of my exact thoughts about this series. Not particularly great, but for some reason I still bloody love it!


message 8: by Piper (new)

Piper I couldn't agree with you more, I loved the book, but didn't like it at the same time.

Hamda Belrumaitha You have summed up everything I wanted to say, i couldn't help but enjoy it and I don't know why I did


message 10: by Teacup (new)

Teacup America Singer came across as very manipulative to me too especially at the end (last chapters) when I lost absolutely all credibility for the story. She kept toggling between the two guys and profession love here and there to a ridiculous amount.

The author put so much effort into establishing her past with Aspen and then within half a page just completely wiped it out by rushing her adoration for the prince out of no where. I would have appreciated it if she actually had more introspect to make it more believable. I was laughing shocked when Aspen showed up and then she completely WIPED OUT THE PRINCE'S affection and returned to her first feelings. Seriously? I know people can be hesitant but the way everything was written was just juvenile.

Stephanie Leiker well said analogy.


message 12: by Kiran (new)

Kiran It really is an enjoyable bundle of tropes and cliches.
