    I didn t say anything, Ash said Maybe not with your mouth, but your eyes just called me a slutFirst, the good, because I m a positive person The main character in this book is a Polynesian girl A person of color A very rare thing to happen within an YA novel.But now the bad Just because the book makes an effort towards diversity, doesn t mean it s going to be good And for me, this book was not good.Believe me, I wanted so much to love the main character I wanted her to be feisty, II didn t say anything, Ash said Maybe not with your mouth, but your eyes just called me a slutFirst, the good, because I m a positive person The main character in this book is a Polynesian girl A person of color A very rare thing to happen within an YA nove...

    Wildefire by Karsten Knight is what The Goddess Test should have been and wasn t.In fact, Wildefire does many things right that the YA genre has been getting wrong Those involved in the recent uproar over the lack of cultural inclusion in this genre can take a nice, refreshing, Polynesian breath of fresh air Or, you know, enjoy one of the many OTHER aspects of Polynesian culture Ashline is the modern reincarnation of an ancient Polynesian Goddess Her sister, Eve, is also a reincarnation of Wildefire by Karsten Knight is what The Goddess Test should have been and wasn t.In fact, Wildefire does many things right that the YA genre has been getting wrong Those involved in the recent uproar over the lack of cultural inclusion in this genre can take a nice, refreshing, Polynesian breath of fresh air Or, you know, enjoy one of the many OTHER aspects of Polynesian culture Ashline is the modern reincarnation of an ancient Polynesian Goddess Her sister, Eve, is also a reincarnation of a goddess Like most ancient Goddesses when they re happy, they re happy and when they re not you re dead.As it turns out, Eve is just the wrong side of insane and her fixation is on her little sister Knight does an amazing job...

    This is not for me A shocking amount of pointless, gratuitous, glorified violence that is written in such a way as if it should be applauded by the readers and to my chagrin, yes, apparently some do think it is perfectly OK, no, cool, for a girl to beat up another girl for messing around with her boyfriend everyone s flippant attitude towards this violence really, a week s suspension for knocking someone unconscious a girl with her teeth knocked out trying to be mouthy with her victimize This is not for me A shocking amount of pointless, gratuitous, glorified violence that is written in such a way as if it should be applauded by the readers and to my chagrin, yes, apparently some do think it is perfectly OK, no, cool, for a girl to beat up another girl for messing around with her boyfriend everyone s flippant attitude towards this violence really, a week s suspension for knocking someone unconscious a girl with her teeth knocked out trying to be mo...

    This is going to be a very long review I probably shouldn t even say review More of a discussion, really, of what I thought about this book and why I was not impressed by it.The last book that produced such a visceral reaction in me was the latest one in the Strange Angels series That one, I didn t complete because well, I disliked it that much This one I felt compelled to complete because people whose reviews I follow assured me that this book gets better After completing it, I have come This is going to be a very long review I probably shouldn t even say review More of a discussion, really, of what I thought about this book and why I was not impressed by it.The last book that produced such a visceral reaction in me was the latest one in the Strange Angels series That one, I didn t complete because well, I disliked it that muc...

    I did NOT see that coming No, I didn t Not At All.Okay, so Karsten Knight and I got off to a rocky start Not personally, of course, but in terms of his prose I read the first chapter of Wildefire on the Simon Schuster website, and I was not very impressed I wished desperately that a competent editor would take a pair of shears to the prose and trim it It was florid, there were too many similes, and it was trying too hard to be pretty prose , if you know what I mean Being a hype w I did NOT s...

    Sigh Do you know how you are really excited about a book and you have this feeling you are going to LOVE it But soon as you start reading it you start to wonder if you have received the same copy as others who fell head over heels in love with it Well, that is exactly what Wildefire was for me I have a confession I totally fell for the hype with this one I really wanted to love this Even when I felt like giving up halfway through, I continued on in hopes that it would get better But, ala Sigh Do you know how you are really excited about a book and you have this feeling you are going to LOVE it But soon as you start reading it you start to wonder if you have received the same copy as others who fell head over heels in love with it Well, that is exactly what Wildefire was for me I have a confession I totally fell for the hype with this one I really wanted to love this Even when I felt like giving up halfway through, I continued on in hopes that it would get better But, alas, for me, it did not Did I hate it No, that wouldn t be fair Saying I hated it would put it on the same pathetic shelf along City of Fallen Angels and Marked and Wildefire wasn t that bad But, was I disappointed Immensely I gave this book 2 stars because while I didn t really like it, there were a few things I did like So, I ll start at the good.One of Wildefire s best qualities was the diversity of ethnicities In the beginning, I ll admit I had trouble keeping up with who was who The plus side to this is t...

    Actual Rating 3.5 stars Wildefire by Karsten Knight is a strange beast of a novel Nearly 400 pages, it s a bit of an intimidating novel especially if you had been reading many iffy opinions about it as I had Too much senseless violence Unsympathetic heroine Creepy love interest. So many one star rev...

    Over the past few years, in the wake of the sparkle madness, we ve seen a wide variety of paranormal mythologies saturate the YA market to the point where much of it has become derivative, overdone and frankly, a little dull To find something original in the market is always pleasant, so a novel centred around a reincarnated Polynesian goddess was automatically a must read for me So far, my GoodReads friends have been mixed in their opinions on the novel, so I will have to be the dull one here Over the past few years, in the wake of the sparkle madness, we ve seen a wide variety of paranormal mythologies saturate the YA market to the point where much of it has become derivative, overdone and frankly, a little dull To find something original in the market is always pleasant, so a novel centred around a reincarnated Polynesian goddess was automatically a must read for me So far, my GoodReads friends have been mixed...

    I read up to page 118 and that was enough for me I could not stand the main character Ash From the very beginning, she grated my nerves her dialogue and her actions were nasty and violent I don t mind violence in a book at all In fact, I ve been known to read some pretty violent books but this was just stupid violence for the sake of what, I don t know And don t get me started on Ash beating up a girl, hurting her boyfriend and then suddenly, she decides to be forgiving when the girls com I read up to page 118 and that was enough for me I could not stand the main character Ash From the very beginning, she grated my nerves her dialogue and her actions were nasty and violent I don t mind violence in a book at all In fact, I ve been known ...

    Read the first 80 pages, skimmed the rest, saw the big secret, saw the big cliffhanger Style and story are just not for me, and I really have no interest in spending the time to write a review More details in my reading status update.
