It’s Monday, which means i’m barely functioning and no one wants to read a lot on Monday mornings. So i’m bringing you a quick and friendly mini review!


Rating: ★★★

Recommended for: Anyone who needs a quick and easy palette cleanser read

“Wish I could say it was a deviously clever move, but the truth is I’ve got grace management issues.”

Review

Oh, I relate to Aurora and her stumbling clumsiness so well. She is a special snowflake in a new school and attracts a group of hot mysterious boys. This was a fairly typical teenage paranormal story, nothing outstanding or amazing. Girl moves to town, girl finds out she is special, girl has various funny and/or cute interactions with bad boy.

I did love the banter, but Aurora needs to learn her limits. She was funny and smart, but a little too over-the-top thinking that she could be the one to save everyone and running off on her own. Demons are chasing her for about 90% of the book and the other 10% is teenage angst. This is a perfect read if you want something light-hearted and fun with lots of monsters.
