*Using the Melody of Friday by Rebecca Black* Its Tris and Izzie, Gotta get down with Izzie. Gotta make your mind up, which boy will you taaaaake? Well, the one that's mentioned in the cover you stupid.
I'm not trying hate here, but I am going to be honest. Here I go:
Reading Tris and Izzie was like listening to Rebecca Black's Friday, I was constantly stopping and asking myself, seriously? this is for real? I mean, seriously?? There were scenes that I guess were meant to be scary and to get my heart racing, but all I kept thinking was that it was so so so... stupid. I know it's harsh, but it really came out as dumb.
I thought the characters were inconsistent and Izzie was just very irrational and selfish. All I wanted to yell at Izzie was to stop!
The novel circled around the good subject of Love and it tried to portray good points about what Love is, but I just think that it wasn't executed properly, because I really did saw potential, I strongly think that if the author had written the book in a slightly different way and probably re-invented Izzie, the novel could have reached a much higher level. Sadly, this was not the case, and the real result was a crappy novel.
Thanks to Netgalley I saved a few dollars, since the cover is so gorgeous, I'm sure I would have bought it without thinking. Took me Forever to read it. I guess that if you liked Friday by Rebecca Black, this is for you. If not then.... just don't get close to it O.O
"A story is not always a lie," said Tristan. "Some stories are truer than truth."Truer than truth? That sounded like something liars made up to tell people who found them out."
