I won't lie, I am definitely not a new-comer to Lauren Kate and her writing style, I am sure most of the teenage population is in the same boat with me here. If you haven't read her books, you would have at least heard of them.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book.
While the first page minimalistic describing kind of set my teeth on edge- I MEAN JUST WRITE A CORRECT SENTENCE!!!- the rest of the book had enough of an engaging plot and wonderful characters- even with their wacky names- for me to forget all about the first page and keep reading.
I have read a lot of reviews for this book that seemed to be hating on it even before they read it or it came out, and as a fellow reader, that's a little bit prejudice. I didn't go into this book with extremely high expectations, which probably helped with the 4 stars rating.
If my ramblings round up to anything, read it. You might find yourself pleasantly surprised too. I'll be reading the next one for sure. Atlantis! Who wouldn't be intrigued!
