Two-faced Nitpicker

I'm here just to scope this place out as an alternative to goodreads and as a little bookbank in case I ever bank out of goodreads. (And did I also mention goodreads?)


About me: I'm a pretty lazy reviewer but big on reading so don't expect much reviewing but when reviews come, do beware of endless rambling about everything, including things unimportant like digressing on other unrelated books.


"Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you"

Opal - Jennifer L. Armentrout HOW WAS THAT AN ENDING it had the I-want-to-kill/hug(killer hug?)-you-author and the heartbreaking feeling comparable to my Percy and Annabeth feels at the end of [b:Mark of Athena|12127750|The Mark of Athena (Heroes of Olympus, #3)|Rick Riordan|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1339382726s/12127750.jpg|17115055].

But can I say that I did not expect it? *sighs*
I knew it was a doomed plot- I mean just look at the strength of their plan. They knew they were walking into a trap BUT WHERE WAS THE MASTERMINDING AND STRATEGIZING PART?! My goodness me even teenagers with lesser powers than you strategize better (see: Artemis Fowl II/ Azula) -- though in defense of the novel none of them were criminal masterminds or fire-bending strategists. BUT STILL. Aren't Luxen supposed to have above average intelligence?!.

Other than that though, I wouldn't mind reading it again just for the Katymon scenes ;) (Though plotwise, the book feels like it could been much more... muchier.)
Needless to say, I am glad this author writes fast.
