Book One ~ Gideon Lee
This is a young adult book and well, what can I say more than that I think this really is for young adults. A lot of young adult books can be read and enjoyed by grown up… and I say that and feel like meh. This is not one of them. When I started reading I though the books would be great but it really was super easy and super fast and now afterwards I feel meh about it. I dont really know what to say and this is not speachless in a good way. Which I am sad aboyut because I can see in the writing that the author has great potential but it is far from there with this book.
I wish I would say more about it but the final words about this is meh and avarage. Which I dont really like to write but I have to be honest. Maybe young adult would get more out the book then I did.
Book Two ~ Lark Singer
Original Release Date: Dec 6, 2014
I must say that this book is better than the first one in the series which I am happy about! I have a better feeling and feel more happy after finished reading it. It is still pretty avarage and dont stick out but it is still enjoyable to read even for an adult. This is a quick read and I did read it in one sitting. Even if it is better the main character of the book annoy the hell out of me and I really cant connect with her and maybe that is one of the things that make me less hyped over the book. But she is naive and, sorry, stupid and I just want to smack her hard, with a chair, made of iron, in the head.
The first book didnt make me feel much and thing book maked me more annoyed and frustrated but it made me feel and I can write about it. But so far, this series is pretty boring and I can see that the audience is to young adults, maybe young adults who hasnt read so much and want something easy to get them into reading. I dont know but still, this is not a book for me.
Book Three ~ Starlight
Okay this is the last part of the series and I feel like meh and WTF. I saw that the series had potential and I hoped this last book would be the best in the series due to progress in the author and books but this is just a flat fall. Im sorry but this book was just nothing for me. I was so bored out of my mind and everything was so pretictable. I can see that this book and this series is really a young adult series and nothing for adults becuase there is, nothing in this book that is for adults.
Lark is the most stupid and naive character I have meet in a long time and I so dislike her and well I feel a bit sorry for her but still NO. And in this book, meh no.
I do not like to write reviews that isnt good but I have to express my honest oppinion and I barley finished this book due to how bored I was. and when I read reviews it feels like I didnt read the same book as other people but it is clear we have different taste and this didnt do anything for me.
I see potential in the author and I think she can write great but this book and this series is not for me. Maybe young adults would like it and enjoy it but as an adult there is nothing for you. The story is thin, the language is easy. But maybe if you dont want a book where you have to think, you would like the series.
