The Goddess Test
The Goddess Test - Aimee Carter There are TONS of bad reviews on this book and I figured it would be a DNF for me. I ended up enjoying it well enough to keep going. Did I love it? No, but it was a pretty decent read. It was a good book to kill some time with. The pacing was good and kept me interested. I even liked the characters.

If you have a special interest in Greek mythology then you probably would be annoyed with The Goddess Test. The characters that play the Greek gods are unbelievable. I just pretended that it had nothing to do with them. Those guys were nothing like I'd expect Greek gods to be.

That's about all I have to say, I didn't feel strongly about this book either way. This is the first book in the series, and in my opinion it can be read as a standalone.

The Goddess Test - Aimee Carter
The Goddess Test - Aimee Carter

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book. I liked the way the new world was set up, I liked the characters, I liked the way it was written, and I liked the plot. And yet, I didn't give it 5/5 stars. There were some reasons for this. In this review, I will discuss both positive and negative aspects of the book. I will do my best to not spoil, but maybe I will give some examples (without giving names) that might be a small spoiler.

 

First and foremost, the writing style. I loved the writing style of Aimee Carter. Every time I started reading this book, I couldn't stop myself. There are some books in which I have this as well, but, considering the fact I'm in a kind of reading slump right now, this doesn't count for all the books I read. It usually takes me some time and pages to really get into the story. For this novel, it all seemed so easy. However, as the story continued, I started losing this feeling. Yes, I still loved the writing style, but there were some other things that turned me down a little. Because of this, it took me longer to finish the book than I had wanted to.

 

Secondly, the plot. I liked the plot of this novel. It kind of reminded me of Teardrop, which I as well really enjoyed, but than better written (by this I mean it was written in a way that made me feel more involved in the story, whilst it took me quite some time to feel involved in the novel Teardrop). Moreover, it contained Greek mythology, and who doesn't love Greek mythology? However, after this great start of the novel it didn't get much better. I had oped it would, but unfortunately, I only found things getting weird. I believe I was halfway through the book when I experienced this feeling first. Suddenly there was romance, and, even though it was written in first person view point, we hadn't noticed this romance before AT ALL. It is usually true that the main character suddenly realises she likes a certain boy, but as a reader, we could see that one coming from the very very first start. For the Goddess Test, all I could do was guess, but I honestly did not know how it would exactly turn out to be. A love triangle? No love interest? The person who somehow seemed most obvious, but with whom we didn't see any romantic developments? Apart from this, I did like the plot. There were lots of twists that I didn't see coming at all. Actually, I believed the only real turn down of the plot was the romance, which I absolutely didn't like.

 

Then the characters. I liked Kate. However, sometimes she seemed so weak, whilst at the same time, she was described as brave. I did understand why they called her brave, but they couldn't see/hear/read what she thought. If they did, I think she would have seemed weaker in their eyes too. Next to this small thing, I really liked Kate. She was selfless, and some of her characteristics and choices were relatable to me. Still, I think my favourite characters were Ava and Calliope. I hope that in the sequel, we will learn more about them. Also, I didn't really understand Henry, and get a clear image of him and his characteristics in my head. I hope this will happen in the second novel as well.

 

In my opinion, this book as just a fun read. It isn't one of my favourites, but I do believe it deserves 3.5 stars. I really hope the second novel will explain the characters and some major plot points better. If that is the case, I am sure I will rate it higher than I rated this novel. And for I forget, I do think people who love Greek mythology should read this book!

 

P.S. Am I the only one who thinks the cover could've been much prettier?

The Goddess Test
The Goddess Test - Aimee Carter ein tolles buchDas Buch hat mich durch sein Cover angesprochen, eigentlich schlicht, aber es hatte irgendwas ;)
Es geht darum das Kate den letzten Wunsch ihrer Mutter erfüllen mag und das ist zurück in das Dorf Eden.
Ihre Mutter ist schwer Krank und wird nicht mehr lange leben und Kate opfert alle Zeit der Welt um die Zeit mit ihr zu geniessen, aber ihre Mutter möchte das Kate selbstständig wird und auch ohne sie leben kann, aber das kommt für Kate nicht in Frage. Das ganze Sterbe Thema ist ein Tabu für sie.
Aber sie geht auf Eden auf eine neue Schule trifft da James und der klebt fast nur an ihr und sie werden doch Freunde, sehr gute Sogar.
Ein Mädchen namens Ava ist Kate aber ein Dorn im Auge sie denkt sie will was von Dylan ihren Freund und lädt sie daher auf eine Party ein...nur ist das ein Streich. Ava bringt sie an einen Ort mit einen Fluss und Kate hat Panik vor Wasser, als Ava sie dann dort alleine lassen will und ausrutscht und sich den Schädel einschlägt , erscheint auf einmal ein junger Mann der Henry heisst und ihr ein Angebot macht..
Damit fängt das Buch eigentlich an, Kurzfassung natürlich ;)

Ich fand das Buch toll.
Kate hat mir sehr gefallen, sie lässt niemanden an sich heran und lebt nur für ihre Mutter, nach und nach taut sie auf und vertraut auch mal anderen.

Ein flüssiger Text , ich hatte nie das Gefühl das ein Kaugummimoment kommtund hab es recht schnell ausgelesen.
Klar wollte ja wissen was es mit Henry auf sich hatte.

Ein toller Mix aus unserer Zeit und der Griechischen Zeit da die Götter auch ihr auftritt dort haben
