Review- Tempted

Title: Tempted

Author: P.C. and Kristin Cast

Published by: St. Martin's Griffin

Pages: 336

It has been a couple of weeks since I have read this book now and I'm still having trouble putting my feelings into words. I'm also trying to make this review sound as nice as possible without it sounding like I absolutely hated this book. Which I did; except for the end.

My thoughts:

1. I get irritated with authors who create an amazing series but then think they can slack on their writing skills and disappoint their audiences. Books one, two and three were so good I was practically sitting on the edge of my seat. I really enjoyed the distinction of characters and how they possessed extensive personalities. But in books four, five and six their personality "quirks" became taxing. I became tired of Stevie Rae's southern accent and Zoey's 23 boyfriends. Seriously Zoey, just chose one. You can't possible be head over heal in love three different guys!

2. These vampires are mere teenagers dealing with life and death situations. Yet they still talk to each other as if nothing serious is going on. I know that a little light hearted humor helps with heavy dilemmas, but their conversation was always way too casual.

3. The plot always just moves too slow. It seems like each book spans only a couple of days. Just end the damn story alread. I'm tired of reading this series but I just can't stop. I'm already committed after reading these six books and I will most likely read the seventh.

WHEW!!! This book was terrible. Don't pick up the series!!!

Really? I am addicted to this series. I can't help myself. I actually really enjoyed the ending. It was a curveball for me anyway! House of Night are my guilty pleasure. Love the honesty in your review. I can understand why you say not to read them. they are hardly good quality writing but I have to see it through to the end.

This series is inexcusably bad and written on about a second grade reading level. It's overly sexual for the age range. Every character in it needs to be slapped repeatedly...

And I love it. Can't wait to hate the next book.
