Hi everyone! This is Julia of The Broke and the Bookish, formerly blogging on my own at The Competitive Bibliomaniac.
I read mostly historical romance, but can often be found reviewing paranormal romance, young adult books (mostly distopian/fantasy), fantasy/sci-fi, classics, and the occasional non-fiction book about languages.
Feel free to follow and reblog!
Below are my legit reactions when reading this horrid book:
"WTH BELLA WHY CANT YOU STAY MAD AT HIM!?! (Edward) *expletive* PAID SOMEONE TO ABDUCTED YOU AND YOU LET HIM OFF WITH A FEW KISSES. GAWWWDD. SERIOUSLY?! IS THIS WHAT TEENAGE GIRLS ARE TODAY?!"
Then I kept reading.
I have never slammed a book shut and walked away fuming before. Never.
I did it with this book three times.
Not only was there a weak heroine who knows her mind but can't stop playing with people who love her, but Meyer took my favorite character (Jacob) and made him into practically a date rapist. Don't even get me started on imprinting.
Do me a favor, people reading this looking for a good romantic story. Ask me about the romance novel genre. I can get you vampire. Hell, I can get you greek gods. And it comes with resolved sexual tension
Originally published on GR in June 2008. Oh, can I taste my rage. I will always remember storming off after slamming the book. Ridiculous.
