Expectations – This is a reread for me. I remember thinking it was fast paced and exciting but being disappointed by the end of the series.
I’m not sure why I thought this was an interesting read the first time. I guess I’m a sucker for the Devil. The main lead has weird mood swings. It makes her unpredictable and unlikeable.
There is a lot of italicized text that I guess is supposed to be her inner thoughts. It’s distracting and at times confusing. Lots of traumatic past to wade through.
Get so many mixed messages about the old boyfriend. I think we are supposed to not like him. However, his only fault seems to be a bad taste in an old girlfriend.
This book may have some value in a future project of recapping a story in a video blog or podcast. It could be fun to point out all the outrageous mood swings. Be rude, break down, say thank you, then repeat.
