I absolutely adore reading - my love for books has had a huge impact on my life! I'm going to grad school to be a children's/YA librarian.

Reading progress update: I've read 148 out of 380 pages.

Darkside Sun - Jocelyn Adams

I'm not sure what to think of this so far. The cover has definite Twilight feels (bad, IMO), but the story so far is VASTLY different from Twilight - or anything else that I've ever read (good). However, there's a lot of info dumping (bad), which gets overwhelming and confusing. I also have yet to find a character that I really like - Addison is annoying and Asher is WAY too mean, and all the other characters don't really seem to be worth really paying attention to yet (bad bad bad). Also, the voice of this book is too immature for my taste, which might have something to do with the fact that it's told in first person from the perspective of Addison, who's 18 and way too whiny for my taste.


But in spite of all the bad that I've encountered with this book, there's something about it that's drawing me in. I can't put my finger on what exactly it is, but something is compelling me to keep reading, to the point where I'm really upset that I have to get up early for church tomorrow because I just want to keep reading and find out what's going to happen, even though I'm definitely confused about some plot points. My urge to keep reading is enough to tell me that ultimately, this book is more good than bad - and I hope that my instincts are right about that.
