Book of the Week

1485988364680

This was an easy choice.

Ive already read the first two books, so naturally, this one came to mind for this week. I’m not super crazy about these, (which isn’t to say they aren’t bad, just not my favorote) but they’re clean and it’s a decent enough story. (Unlike some recent ones I’ve had to endure.)

But yeah, instead of doing a review on just this book next week, I’ll be doing the entire series as a whole. As in ALL of the books that Kierra Cass has written that I could find at the library. (Which is, like, around seven? So, I have quite a bit of reading to do this week.)

Speaking of reviews…

(Not looking forward to this one.)

First of all, I’d like to apologize. If I had known that these books would have the content they did, I never would have picked them up.

But, this is why I feel it’s important for me to review books. Because, in this day and age a lot of people don’t have the care for decency and morals like I, and many I know, do. (I sound SO old right now.)

That being said, I gave this book, and it’s two sequels, a fighting chance to redeem themselves. And I shouldn’t have even done that! Through a lot of self-loathing and “fast-forwarding”, I discovered the true intent of the book:

It’s Fifty Shades of Nasty disguised in innocent, pretty little YA packaging.

I mean, that’s the worst thing about this. The swearing (too much to count), drinking, drugs, gambling, bullying, attempted rape, corruption, harassment, sexual harassment, sexual innuendos, and sex in general- it’s all done by teens, written for teens!!!

So yeah, great role modeling there. As if the younger, easily corruptible minds needed more garbage thrown at them. Ugh. Waste of my life.

Give me Twilight any day over this.

But yeah, this is one of those rare instances where I say, please DONT READ THESE!!! You’re not going to get anything out of it. It’s not opinion. It’s fact. (With a little bit of opinion, but still!!!) Because putting the junk aside (which is next to impossible), the plot doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, and it’s just a poorly constructed, stupid story.

Anyway, next weeks will be better, I promise! They’re actually books I wouldn’t mind my own daughter reading. Which, is impossible. Lando can’t read. She’s a cat!

    I REALLY enjoy the Selection series. Are you going to review the newer books too?

      Yes, I just posted a review on all of the books, plus the Siren. I hope it’s not too harsh for you!
