I like stuff with romantic elements and angst, usually YA, fantasy, paranormal/urban fantasy or variations thereof. Usually wrinkles nose at sci-fi due to unlikely tech. Straight girl who likes boys that like boys!

Dreams of Gods & Monsters  - Laini Taylor

Sigh. I dunno guys. I really liked the first book, and then the second book transformed Karou into a doormat, and after she was done with the doormatting, she and Akiva seemed to do a lot of pining. In book one there was pain, sure, but Karou had all that zest, spirit and snark to make her an interesting heroine. I suppose that loosing it is realistic, but it makes her one helluva boring MC.

 

Book three has so far been a lot of pining too. And things are repeatedly and predictably going to shit to the point that I'm fairly apathic about it all and am mostly slogging through and wonder why the MCs bother.

 

Book one was so awesome. Book two and three so very not in comparison. Why are everybody so enthusiastic?
