I enjoyed this book. However the plot is a bit predictable and the writing is rudimentary. However, I enjoyed the story and have ordered the next book in the series. It could easily be a stand alone book if one did not wish to continue the series. I however want to see what the author intends for her characters. Overall good book.
I am a YA fanatic. I'm actually working on relaunching my book blog with an adolescent lit focus. Defy is one of my absolute favorite YA love stories, and if you haven't read it, go out and pick it up right now! #YAlove #17booklove
This wasn't my favorite book, but I did enjoy some aspects of it. I wished I could've seen some different ways they could've used Alexa's disguise as a man in a new way. What way that is Im not entirely sure, buy definitely something other than what happened. I will probably read the next one just to see what happens after Damian becomes king.
I always want the "girl-dresses-as-boy" trope to bring something new to the table--to say something interesting and different about gender, about sexual orientations, about assumptions and desire. This book did not do any of that, and was therefore not my cup of tea.
I'm thinking it may be time for another bookshelf purchase - or a massive reorganization. So glad it's almost the weekend - anyone else get really super excited about rearranging all your books?
