I could not even get halfway before I got off of this book and started another. If you’re going to put a warning saying that this is not for those under eighteen, why in the world would it be a youth novel? It’s nothing but petty high school drama geared toward those out of high school? It’s been five years since I graduated high school, I’m too old for this. It hardly focused on the supernatural/paranormal aspect of it, it was kind of just accepted and put into a corner to make room for the high school drama. I ended up skipping pages.
The Killing Moon:
This would have been really good, it honestly would have been, if it had gone on with the story instead of seeming to just stand still. Now, I say that because the story didn’t seem to progress any in the way of growth. It just repeated what the readers already know about the female protagonist. I made it a little more than halfway before I had to stop because I was bored. It was either stuck in the past with a bunch of talking or little tidbits of the two MC’s together only to have long periods of them not together.
The Job Offer:
This is one of the reasons I don’t read romances that aren’t paranormal. Don’t get me wrong, there are some great ones out there that I’ve read but this is an example of why it took me to get my book journal for me to branch out. I made it to Chapter 3, 12% in my Kindle, before I gave up. The Killing Moon didn’t seem to have enough detail, this one had way too much. I don’t need to read about every little action the characters do, I don’t need to know every detail about what minor characters are wearing. This was a minute-by-minute dull book, even though I didn’t get very far with it.
Kiss Me Deadly:
The idea is actually an interesting one, sort of a Romeo and Juliet thing going on, a witch and a vampire who are supposed to hate each other hooking up however, I couldn’t get passed the first couple of chapters. It was already repeating a lot of the stuff, I got tired of the phrase death cocktail, and wasn’t very good in the execution.
Thank you for reading my reviews.
