This is a trilogy which seems to be the closest thing to a stand alone I can get. I was on chapter 11 when I stumbled across the reviews on Goodread. I was checking to see if I could update what I was reading and ended up there instead. One comment caught my eye. I think it was a chick so I'll just use she even though it could have been a he. Nah I'm fairly sure it was a she.
This person read two pages and decided that Kim had a said phobia. I don't claim to be smart but I'm pretty sure that when there's no dialogue the odds of the word said being used would go down. It starts with a prologue that was a page long. The word said does show up in the first chapter. What's wrong with using other words instead of said all the time? Maybe this was sarcasm and they really thought she used it too much. One complaint I have is that there's a short story that I think should have been included that explains what happened the night Madison died. This picks up after she's dead. I usually don't read anthologies especially ones with multiple authors although I have to admit that is a good way to discover new authors. Prom Nightmare or something is the name of it. I'm going to see if I can get my hands on the book. I think short stories or novellas should always be put together in a book especially if there are multiple ones for a certain series.
I do like the cover but I'm wondering why the purple is missing. Did they think putting the name of the book in purple was good enough? Why doesn't this girl have purple hair? I did notice there were people that didn't like this book. I was nearly done with the book when I was scanning those comments. I am the one that determines whether or not I like a book. I love the Hollows series so I was ready and more than willing to jump into this YA trilogy. Yes I still say the YA like a word. I just don't do the acronym thing. How can you laugh your ass off? If that's possible can I pick something else to laugh off instead like my beer belly? I can't really say if fans of Kim will like this book or not because I'm not a mind reader. I'm sure I'd be in a much better place if I was.
I'm blanking on the anime that this book is reminding me of. I can see the characters and know that Johnny Bosch did the voice for Ichigo. I looked it up and found the name. I'm talking about Bleach and this shows that there is life after being a Power Ranger. He was Adam in the first version of the show which had more than one season before it became a show that was reincarnated each season with a new cast although there were some characters that popped up in different versions. I also think of Charmed because this series has dark reapers and light reapers. Bleach has reapers in it which this book does too.
Madison is dealing with life after being killed. After I read that comment which included someone commenting and agreeing with this person I was on hyper alert when it came to the word said. I was a few chapters away from being done with the book and I was pretty sure said had showed up. I saw the word used. Kim does not have a said phobia. I do seem to have a comma phobia. I freely admit that. I'm not hiding it. I just don't think of commas although I do use them sometimes so I'm not totally comma clueless. I think it is great that I'm using sentences and paragraphs which hasn't always been the case. I wonder if anyone kept any of those crazy ass letters I wrote in junior high.
Madison was sent to live with her dad because she was a bit of a wild child. Of course there's the mean girl that targets the new girl. I imagine conventions of nasty girls getting together and I'm picturing a lot of them blonde. The ones I've dealt with have been varying shades of blonde like that bitch in English who thought it was funny to talk shit about me in Spanish. Even though I'm not fluent in that language doesn't mean I don't know you're talking about me bitch. I enjoyed the book and already have the second one ready to go. It isn't a long book so it shouldn't take too long to read it even if you aren't a fast reader. I am really curious about her other books. When I dig a author I tend to go after the other books they write. It makes no difference if it crosses over from Adult to YA books.
