Genre: Young Adult
Rating: 2.5 stars - Good for Paranormal YA fans, just not the right fit for me
What I Liked: Maggie Stiefvater's a good writer; plain and simple. Her words are unpretentious, and flows without effort. Sometimes it even sounds poetic. While the events in the book can be very cheesy, her writing tones it down and makes it actually believable. Also, I LOVE the cover.
Indifferent about: the characters. I like them, but not as much. I didn't really care much about them and their relationship to be honest.
What I Didn't Like: Their love story. I didn't get it. I didn't get where it came from, what its basis was, and why they like each other. I thought it was cheesy, and just not for me. I didn't care about them, like I said, and I didn't really root for them or anything. I know a lot of people really liked this aspect, but for me personally, it was a bit of a miss. Another thing was that I thought the pacing was slow. I have to admit, I was bored and rushing in the end.
Skip it if: you don't really read YA much, and if you're like me who's getting a bit tired of the whole werewolf phenomenon.
Read it if: you do like Paranormal YA with a bit of romance. I recommend you check it out for yourself. I know a lot of bloggers and my reader friends who really enjoyed this!
Overall: I can see why people love it so much, but this was just not the right book for me, that's all. It just wasn't my type.
