UPDATE: So much for books to movies? They're going to make a movie out of this book too.


One Sunday morning, I was bored and decided to read Specials the book three of the Uglies trilogies, but I find myself suffering to read it because it's too boring and then I've decided to read this book instead since one of my group here in goodreads was reading it.

At the very first chapter I feel like this was probably a good story and idk, but with the first chapter alone I know that I'd love the book. As I go along reading it I have no idea where the story would go and at first I thought that this is a non-fantasy book, but kind of a romance YA book. But then I think in the middle of the book, strange things begin to happen and you get the feeling that this is a paranormal romance book. At first my guess it would be a vampire story or a fallen angel story and idk I become really disappointed when I've learned that it was a werewolf story.

This book is promising, but a li'l bit disappointing. I describe it as a mix of Twilight, Shiver, Vampire Academy and Hush Hush. So if you love these books you will probably like this one too.

Good thing also about this book is it's very wholesome (a li'l bit preachy), no swearing, sex scenes or any violent scenes. I just don't like that the dialogues lack humor and the climax was not strong enough, some of the twists I have predicted so it's predictable in a lot of times, some of the characters are not that interesting.

But all in all I like it and I finished it in one day and definitely better than Specials.
