Last night I read Blue Bloods. The back cover is a little misleading. From reading the book, the summary makes the book sound waay more interesting than it really is.. I must admit that i was being biased throughout reading the book, but i tried to like it. I do like this book, but I don't worship it like Twilight and all those other books. Blue Bloods starts of slow, giving background to characters and setting up the story line. Melissa writes in third person form, but not. It's weird. It's not in any charcter point of view, but she'd focus on a specific character 's point of view and write through that person's perspective. What makes the book a little more confusing is the back and forth on stories. She tells different side stories for each chapter. There's a few side stories that make up the main story, what the book is all about. It was confusing at first. It's a bit hard to get used to, yenno, the switching back and forth of people she's talking about. One chapter will be about an event, revolving around one character, then the next chapter will be about another character in another event. Then the next chapter will be a continuation of the chapter before last. In order to get some resolution, you can't simply just read Blue Bloods. Apparently she made other people for a reason. So now I need to start reading the next book, Masquerade. The story just starts in Blue Bloods. I don't know what to expect in Masquerade. More slowness or finally some drama and action. I'm betting on drama and all the fast-paced stuff since that's how the last books. I should read now. cuz i have no life. HA!

  1. Gah. I don't wanna start this series until all of the books are out, or else I'll die. Hahaha. I shouldn't start it anyway... I've gotta finish Harry Potter first, and then get through The Host. Plus school! NOOO!
