The lovely ladies touched on many of the things I didn't like about the main pick... except none of them seemed to have paid much attention to the character description of Lucien. I'm pretty sure I'd of enjoyed it more if I had selective memory with this one.
I don't think I can relate to anything they thought was positive... one of those "are you sure we read the same book" type of deals. The hangout was also kind of awkward again, not sure if they were just too sick or drunk but something felt off. o_o;
So sad that the android category did not win the poll for next months pick, again! Another myth type book, I don't know if I can take it. I think I've had enough about gods, angels/demons, myths and fairy tales. Next months pick is
Why did I post a video along with this post? The visual of this video is how I am seeing things in this book. Anya (the female lead) is a combination of both Grimes and the pink haired girl in the video. Sorry. This is not romantic or erotic. This is cringe cringe cringe. FUUUU!!! the virgin card is being played again in this one too and there is a slut shaming vibe I'm getting... someone save me!
And, don't get me wrong either. I love Grimes... I listened to Visions on repeat a couple years ago so much that when I just listened to this video I was brought back to other books that I actually enjoyed.
Sure I rated each of these 3 stars, but that's good IMHO. I'd recommend them and am happy with the memories I can conjure from them. The book I'm reading now, no. Just NO. It's as bad as Dark Duet #2 and I'm still trying to scrub that book from memory. Le sigh~
