RANTY REVIEW with GIFS!
“What did I just read?”
What was this? Better yet – WHY ALL THE FUCKING HYPE!?
*Sigh* Do I HAVE TO pinpoint what didn’t work? Or how much this book ticked me off? Can’t I just say, ” I DIDN’T LIKE IT!” and flounce away, with no other words spoken?
This is one of those times when I purchase a book SOLELY on the hype. Not because it was written by Colleen Hoover – or better yet, TARRYN FISHER, but because everyone was freaking out about this book. I just HAD TO KNOW what it was all about.
I cannot, for the life of me, figure this out.
So in the middle of the school day these two teenagers – Charlie and Silas – lose their memories. Kind of. They can remember off the wall shit but not their family, friends or each other. Basically, anything to do with their own life. Yeah, it sounds awesome.
There was just too much going on; too many WHAT THE FUCKERY things that are not answered. I like what the fuckery, I do. But this was just !@#$!#$. I felt like I took a 400 page mystery novel and opened it up and read 140 in the middle.
It just didn’t make sense. NONE AT ALL. Like IDEAS where just thrown around and haphazardly placed randomly. Like they were thinking, “THIS SOUNDS GOOD, throw in there!” A “clue” is thrown at us and we aren’t given enough time to understand and/or process it before something ELSE is thrown at us. It didn’t work. I don’t even know enough about the characters to LIKE them. Thus, there goes any emotional attachment I could have had to the story. Here is what I walked away with –View Spoiler »
Silas was sleeping with the guidance counselor. I mean, WHAT.
Silas is a possessive jerkface – NO REALLY.
Silas is infatuated with Charlie. – INSTA LOVE STRIKES
Charlie is a bitch – I KIND OF LIKED THAT, THOUGH.
Charlie was sleeping with this dude Bryan, and possible several others based on comments from other people? I DON’T KNOW.
Charlie’s father is in jail – WHY? I DON’T KNOW.
Their families hate each other. AGAIN, WHY!?
This has apparently happened two other times?? WHAAAAAAT IS GOING ON.

I wish they would have stuck with one book that was originally planned because I will NOT buy the next one. I just DON’T CARE.
