Dark Vision
Dark Vision - Debbie Johnson

This was not what I expected. I liked that it was set in Liverpool rather than London, which gave it a fresh look, but underneath it was a surprisingly mundane sort of romance, unfortunately.

Lily is cursed. When she touches someone she gets a vision and it is usually a terrible one. As such she had learned to stay away from people, which means that she has a lot of sarcasm (which is nice) but she also makes the same bad decisions in her mid-twenties as any teenager would (not so nice). She also turns out to be a Goddess, and probably has a very important role in something important I guess, because she is being prepared for a choice which is hardly a choice throughout the entire book.

I had the feeling there was an entire world behind the story, but we just didn't get to see it. Instead we were focusing on the maybe-or-maybe-not relationship between Lily and Gabriel. With some vampires thrown in for good measure. I would have liked to know more about the world and the whys, because now if felt mainly like a romance novel and that is not something I would pick up as easily.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

TBR Thursday #28
Dark Vision - Debbie Johnson
City of God - Cecelia Holland
The Many Lives of Ruby Iyer - Laxmi Hariharan
The Curse Keepers Collection - Denise Grover Swank
Sea of Stars (The Kricket Series Book 2) - Amy A. Bartol
Harrison Squared - Daryl Gregory
Shutterspeed - Erwin Mortier
The Thorn and the Sinking Stone (Entangled Teen) - CJ Dushinski
Tookey's Talkies: 144 Great Films From the Last 25 Years - Christopher Tookey

Moonlight Reader started the TBR Thursday, and I think it's a good way to a) show what new books I've got and b) confront myself with my inability to lower my TBR. In fact, since I started recording it, it has risen significantly. I get the feeling I'm doing something wrong here...


Still no success lowering the TBR, so I just keep trying, and hope next week will be better, TBR-lowering wise. It would be a lot easier if there weren't so many books out there that sounded interesting. 


TBR pile currently stands at 348. (+20; seriously what happened; except that I added the Curse Keeper's Collection as individual books)

(Netgalley ARCs at 163 (+8))
