    Actual rating 4.5 starsWriting this review is extremely difficult for me, not only because I absolutely loved Taken, and writing reviews for books I love is usually a difficult process for me if you haven t noticed, I m not the most eloquent reviewer I use gifs and tend to swear Often , because I always feel like I am not doing the book I m reviewing justice with my words, and other times, I m just at a loss for said words Though with Taken, that is not entirely why writing this review is Actual rating 4.5 starsWriting this review is extremely difficult for me, not only because I absolutely loved Taken, and writing reviews for books I love is usually a difficult process for me if you haven t noticed, I m not the most eloquent reviewer I use gifs and tend to swear Often , because I always feel like I am not doing the book I m reviewing justice with my words, and other times, I m just at a loss for said words Though with Taken, that is not entirely why writing this review is so difficult for me Yes, while I don t feel I can do this book justice with just my review and I am at a loss for words concerning how awesome Taken was, this review is mostly difficult for me to write because ther...

    Such a shame especially that up until almost halfway I would have given this book a good 3 stars It has such a unique premise with a super intriguing world that could have been awesome had it been executed much better Unfortunately with an insufferable protagonist, the world building and plot were all that this book had left, and after seeing the halfway mark come and go, I realized that in both of these aspects it was beginning to fail miserably and it didn t stop Gray Weathersby is not a l Such a shame especially that up until almost halfway I would have given this book a good 3 stars It has such a unique premise with a super intriguing world that could have been awesome had it been executed much better Unfortunately with an insufferable protagonist, the world building and plot were all that this book had left, and after seeing the halfway mark come and go, I realized that in both of these aspects it was beginning to fail miserably and it didn t stop Gray Weathersby is not a likeable MC I was forewarned from other readers, though, so I knew to expect a do...

    Based on the premise, I thought this could be the novel that would change my perception of the YA genre Unfortunately, it only further degraded the genre for me.Predictable, underdeveloped characters, and weak plot After the first 50 pages or so, the novel started going downhill It s a surprise that I managed to reach page 266, but by then it was unbearable I had to put the novel down before I end up rating it 1 star The biggest question is for you YA lovers is, Was the novel really that b Based on the premise, I thought this could be the novel that would change my perception of the YA genre Unfortunately, it only further degraded the genre for me.Predictable, underdeveloped characters, and weak plot After the first 50 pages or so, the novel started going downhill It s a surprise that I managed to reach page 266, but by then it was unbearable I had to put the novel down before I end up rating it 1 star The biggest question is for you YA lovers is, Was the novel really that bad And my answer, as usual, is that no, it wasn t that bad It was just that bad in my case, because I ve given up on the genre a long time ago I m sure another question pops in your head, Why the fuck did you read this then , and my answer is that I m still looking for YA books that are actually good I m sure there are a bunch of them out there, and I don t want to be labeled a genre discriminator ...

    I had a very vague idea ermostly no idea, actually what TAKEN was about when I began reading Dystopian and some action Cool, I thought I ll read this on my transatlantic plane trip, and times passes I glanced up at the big TV clock thingy WHAT We re already landingI forced myself to ignore the turbulent ride down to the tarmac I WAS SO CLOSE TO THE END, and I just HAD to know what would happen Fortunately, in case you were worried, I managed to finish just as the plane touche I had a very vague idea ermostly no idea, actually what TAKEN was about when I began reading Dystopian and some action Cool, I thought I ll read this on my transatlantic plane trip, and times passes I glanced up at the big TV clock thingy WHAT We re already landingI forced myself to ignore the turbulent ride down to the tarmac I WAS SO CLOSE TO THE END, and I just HAD to know what would happen Fortunately, in case you were worried, I managed to finish just as the plane touched down And then I managed to think about the book all the way to the baggage claim, all the way home from Stuttgart, and all through the next week.Okay, so what did I enjoy so much GRAY GRAY, GRAY It s SO refreshing to read some YA told from a guy s POV a sexy guy s POV at that He s kickbutt yet also a sweetheart He s impulsive and sometimes careless, yet he s loyal and determined And every step he takes is both unpredictable yet utterly consistent with his character.Oh, and the love triangle SWOOOOOOON I cannot WAIT to see how it al...

    Taken is one of those books that relies on secrets and lies to build suspense leading up to the big payoff, which means two things One, unfortunately it s a tough book to review because spoilers are a definite no no, can t ruin it for those of you yet to read it, can I Butimportantly two, what s behind the curtain has to be good, or at least worth the price of admission of pulling it back.And in Taken s case, it wasn t I want to say I felt like Dorothy ...

    If you guess the big twist in the very first chapter, it definitely affects the way you view the rest of the book But then again, there are books films I can experience over and over again knowing full well what happens, and I still love them Unfortunately, this one doesn t f...

    It took me over a month to read Taken, which must be some kind of a record for me I don t usually do that I either finish the book right away, or I just give up Taken didn t grab me as it should have, but at the same time, I felt that abandoning it would be unjustified since there was nothing technically wrong with it In the end, I managed to talk myself into finishing it, but aside from a few gripping moments, my effort brought me no reward I should have saved myself the trouble.On the su It took me over a month to read Taken, which must be some kind of a record for me I don t usually do that I either finish the book right away, or I just give up Taken didn t grab me as it ...

    Taken was another book which I was extremely looking forward to reading It had a unique premise at 18 years old, boys in Claysoot are Heisted, why did this happen no one knew, but it was a ritual established in Claysoot for many years These boys were also meant to be slated before their Heist, these slatings were organised eventually to result in an offspring, so that they would continue the...
