Zodiac by Romina Russell Review

Sorry Romina...

But your book sucked.

I do enjoy myself a good high sci-fi every now and again, but I have standards for those books and this book definitely didn't meet my standards.

The main character in this novel was so annoying and I wanted her to die half of the time. In addition, the only characters that I actually felt a connection with were Hysan and Mathias. And Rho was just a bitch to them most of the time, which I would not tolerate.

In addition to having a cast of horrible characters, I had no idea what was going on half of the time and it wasnt even explained later in the book. Russell would randomly add in things and people then wouldnt explain anything about them and it was just awful.


And always, I could see how this book might have some potential on the story line, but the plot was everywhere, the characters were awful and underdeveloped, the writing wasnt very good, and nothing was explained, I would not pick up this book unless you needed something to put you in a slump or kill you.
Honestly this book took up so much of my energy!

Rating: 2 Yellow Roses

Thanks,

Delaney

PS
Sorry Romina

Sorry... But I've got a Review!

Sorry I have't been on here in a long time, you know summer, I get so caught up in things. But when school starts I'll be back.

Today I will be reviewing Endgame by James Frey and Nils Johnson-Shelton.

Now I read this quite a long time ago as you can see by my last post.

This book was good. I guess. I couldn't really connect to any of the characters really which I look for in books, and sometimes the plot was just over my head confusing. I thought that the book itself had so much potential and the writing was pretty good. You really have to be in a certain mood to read this book. Although, if in my case, you read it when you are not in that mood, you end up with a huge reading slump. :(

This reading slump, however, was different. Yes, it slowed down my reading capability by a lot, but it also made me not want to read that kind of genre for a long time.

I am out of this slump now and over that book.
Currently I'm  reading An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir and it is an amazing story.
Almost done so a review will be coming soon

Endgame rating

3 yellow roses (now a different rating system)

Thanks,

Delaney
PS in this amount of time I kinda forget which books that I have read and not reviewed so if a ton come out in a day, dont be alarmed, its just me catching up on the slack of summer.
