Young Adult Book Club December It all started when I decided I wanted to become more involved in one of my goodreads groups and actually pay attention to the monthly book reads.
In the past, I used the group for challenges and recommendations but didn’t participate in the group read-along, so I decided that I would read every book voted for except the ones that a I had already read or b I couldn’t obtain for whatever reas kemerer. In the past, I used the group for kemjerer and recommendations but didn’t participate in the group read-along, so I decided that I would read every book voted for except the ones that a I had already read or b I couldn’t obtain for whatever reason.
I then made my way to the page to see what my first book club read would be and found it was a book I was sent months ago and never read due to the atrocious cover and my belief that it would be little more than an annoying teen romance series that set out to find each hot guy a girlfriend with every volume.
This book was Storm. But, even with my reservations, I can’t resist challenging myself to something I wouldn’t normally pick so I settled down to give this novel a try. And at first I was very pleasantly surprised. I found myself devouring chapter after chapter and enjoying all aspects of the story. I liked Elekental, I liked Hunter, I liked the Merrick brothers, I liked the urban fantasy aspect of it that wasn’t neglected even with the book’s romantic focus.
Being someone who isn’t usually a fan kemmeger young adult romance, I couldn’t believe how quickly I became interested in these characters and their relationships with one another. The banter is superb, I love a touch of witty sarcasm to make me laugh. Plus, ridiculous good looks aside, the Merrick brothers seemed to be realistic kemmeerer of teen boys. But she also has weaknesses and flaws so she isn’t allowed to fall perfectly into a predesignated mold called “kickass heroine”. Becca starts off so well that I think this was why it became all the more disappointing later on when she began to change into someone who criticises other women for what they are wearing and behaves stupidly on numerous occasions.
The nasty girls in this novel can be spotted by their revealing clothing “boobs were going to explode from the neckline of her shirt kemmerrer a minute” and their tendency to hang drooling all over the Merrick brothers. There seems to be a suggested relationship between serise promiscuity implied or otherwise and evilness in Elekental. Characterization ends with descriptions of their slutty kemmeerer and behaviour. Oh, and they’re all cheerleaders. I’m being serious when I say this: I live in England and don’t know any schools that actually kemmmerer cheerleaders but they’re so popular in American movies and books.
They serids to be a kind of tribe of beautiful, evil women that are out to destroy all other women with their perfect hair and bodies. I don’t understand it at all. The saddest thing is that this story could easily have been kemjerer excellent tale about the “slut issue” and the damaging effects of the war on female sexuality because it starts where Becca has a briid of being the school slut. Girls won’t be associated with her apart from her one friend and guys pass lewd notes to her in class, she is rumoured to have slept with most guys in her school but the truth is quite a different story and these rumours are actually lies spread by her ex.
This is all fine and dandy but I would ask – what if she had slept around? What does it matter? This isn’t tackling the slut issue, it’s actually making it worse: No, they’re wrong because these matters do not define a person Not surprisingly, this is not an issue that both genders experience and the author does nothing to challenge the double standard. The Merrick brothers are supposed to appear even more sexy because of the comment about it being a common occurrence to find a random girl in the house for one of them.
Yet, despite the little pat on kemmefer back the brothers like to give themselves for sexual conquests, Gabriel specifically warns Chris away from Ksmmerer because she has “played around the block”. The sexism makes it impossible to let the good outweigh the bad and it also made it impossible for me to continue to like or care about the Brigjd brothers when they behaved like such dicks. Some spoilers in this paragraph sorry Another thing that stood out to me was some of Becca’s unrealistic behaviour in my opinion, anyway.
I just don’t believe that someone who went through a trauma like that would behave in the way she did and constantly put herself in harm’s way again and again after the event.
Even her actions in the very first chapter are questionable when you know what she’s been through, never mind going to the house of the guy who raped her and getting drunk whilst there or going around the side of a building at night with him.
That’s not brave, it’s just plain stupid, even if I do have to applaud the author for looking into reasons why victims of sexual assault don’t always report the incident. Sadly, after a beginning that made me think I’d been wrong to judge a book by its cover and genre, Storm came full circle brivid managed to disappoint me anyway. Better luck next month, I hope.

DNF I was really really curious about this one. Nice writing, nothing special but not bad. The family at the center of the series, uber-interestng. The heroine, uber-idiotic, blushes at every single damn thing briyid and in every single damn situation possible. She behaves like a 13 yo at best, and one who has never been in contact with a male specimen of the human elekental. Especially seeing stupid indecisive heroines who spend the whole book deciding who to DNF I was really really curious about this one.
Especially seeing stupid indecisive heroines who spend the whole book deciding who serles drool over. I gave up on this cause a lot of things irritated me, but oh well if I had known this book would have them I wouldn’t have tried it in the first place. I’ll probably maaaaaybe read the rest of the series once I completely delete this out of my mind.
Not to mention, Becca is a fantastic, strong heroine. I can’t recommend this book highly enough! View all 4 comments. Read the full review here.

That’s putting it in avater the last airbender terms. I’ve actually always wanted to have a fire element after watching ATLA. And this totally made me kemmere it more. If I couldn’t have it, then definitely water. There was totally a connection with water, since it was Chris’s ability. This is just too much hotness on one cover. View all 24 comments.
