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"

Forbidden - Jana Oliver meh.
I finshed it FINALLY. but I'm so tired of reading it in sections over the span of one month because it didn't capture my interest well enough.

I don't like Ori. Just for the record.

However I will read the next book just to know what happens.

3.5 stars. meh. (I sound like a sheep.)(or is it shoop?)

Now for the spoiler part
I DO NOT LIKE THE FACT THAT RILEY GAVE HER V CARD TO ORI! He may be hot, BUT HE'S AN ANNOYING STALKER.(He knows if you are sleeping, he knows when you're awake.)
My point is asserted when Mr. L of the great festering pit below just happened to mention that Oh and you know what? Ori's sleeping with you for your soul. Idiot girl. Just because someone big and strong comes and kills your grade 5 demon you reward him with by giving the term abstinence the sack.
And your obsession over your dad gets on my nerves. I mean I feel you, but you. are. getting. on. my. nerves. Maybe it's because I read an awesome book before this.
OR MAYBE BECAUSE IT'S RILEY.
I like Beck. He cares for Riley. Yet she gets jealous over his girlfriend, and hates that he fusses over her.
I like Harper. He amuses me. Peter too, although he's like a dog. woof! woof! I like the hunters too actually. They make the plot a readable.
I like Simon. Although I find it redundant for him to become a major preacher, so that Riley would dump him and get hitched with Ori.
BUT RILEY. you suck. You were endangering Mortimer's job for goodness sake when you tried to be all high and mighty with Lord Ozymandius(I don't know how to spell his name) during the zombie auction. He already put his neck on a line for you and you just sounded the death knoll.
And I like Mortimer! He reminds me of a rabbit. A fluffy rabbit nibbling on a nice bit of carrot. AND THEN THE GUINEA PIG PUSHES THE RABBITS TO THE WOLVES.
Yes Riley is like a guinea pig. Let me list the similarities. Guinea pigs annoy me. They are oddly repulsive for something smaller than I am. They eat anything and everything. They are killed easily and need the owner to protect it and cuddle it. THEN IT BITES YOU. It has huge problems(be it literal or metaphorical).
I rest my case.
But I do like the other characters though. Just saying.
The ending was a meh. I made a deal with the devil and my father is back even though he's still decomposing!
