So before I get to far into the review, I want to say I was really excited to review this book because its the first time an author has reached out to me. On with the review!
Summary from Amazon:
When Diana woke up on her 23rd birthday she thought it was going to be a normal day. She thought of donuts, coffee, and laughter. She did not think she was going to become the center in a galactic race to win her heart. None too pleased with the prospect of alien races descending on Earth to try and woo her, Diana does the only reasonable thing she can; she runs. Now she has to try and find a way to get rid of the blasted bracelet that is the cause of all the recent craziness in her life. The problem is this isn’t an ordinary bracelet; it contains the Heart of the Cosmos. Furthermore the Cosmos chose her for a reason and it isn’t keen on letting her go until she finishes what it started over ten years ago. Something tried to destroy it and now Diana isn’t just worried about her heart, she is worried about her life.
I thought this book had a great story line, and overall I liked the idea of this book. The books connections to everyday life were amusing, and I liked how they tied in with everyday life. However, the pacing was to fast at the wrong times, characters needed more depth, and personality, characters needed to be explained better, and the story lacked detail were it was needed most. I was very frusturated while reading the first chapter because I did not know what was happening. A character would be introduced, a handful of other caracters would be introduced, and then the first character would do something. The pacing was also way to fast when introducing characters. In the first chapter the main character and her family were introduced, then the inciting action occured right after. It would have been nice for the inciting action to happen after seeing the main character’s relationship with her family. This problem happened again later in the book when more characters were introduced. Also, think the characters need some more depth. A lot of the characters are merely introduced, and do’t seem to have much substance/personality. I think this goes along with the relationship problem actually. I just think that if the pacing were slower when new characters were introduced, more time went into building relationships, and characers had more depth, this book could be a 5
star Baymax book.
drumroll please . . . . . .
Sorry I don’t have a picture
This book needs some work; it needs better pacing, the characters need more depth, and more focus on relationships.
But this book has so much good-that doesn’t even make sense. Like I said before, this book has a great story line. I loved the idea of teh story, I loved the idea and concept of the story. I loved the ending, although I must say te ending surprised me. I had an OTP with this book, the first couple days I read this book I couldn’t put it down. Even though the story has some kinks, I was in love with the plot/concept. Eve though I love the overall story I had to rate it 3/5 Baymaxs because the story can’t make up for the lack of character depth, poor pacing, and poor relationships.
If you’re impaitent when it comes to reading don’t read this book, but if you’re willing to give a book the time you’ll fall in love with this book.
Thats all for now book trolls! I hope you liked this review-its been a while I know! One last thing, make sure to check out K.T. Munson’s blog here! I have another link to her blog at the top of this post next to author.
