WIP'ed Ink Wednesday: Prophecy Girl Review

I chose to do a book review today for WIP'ed Ink because I can not stress enough the importance of reading to help improve your writing. I actually read a book that was outside my favorite genres, and I am so glad I did! Here's what I had to say about it:

PROPHECY GIRL, by Cecily White

-->
Paranormal is usually not my cup of tea. I love ghost stories, though, and stories dealing with angels.

So, when I got the awesome opportunity to review Prophecy Girl by Cecily White for Pam, I jumped at the chance. Why? Because I wanted to see what this genre was all about, I love YA books, and I wanted to stretch my horizons, go out on a limb, and go for the gold. I’m certainly glad I did!

I did have to get past the vampires and demons. I’m just being honest here, okay? But… beyond that, this book has a treat in store for you!

The action is non-stop. The plot lines just flows, then pops, then sizzles, then flows again. I was never lost, never wished for things to speed up or slow down, and felt like the pacing was right on track.

The MC was snappy and smart and a little snarky, which makes for a good YA character, and she also had her faults, which made her believable.

The writing was tight, dialogue witty and believable and flowed well.

Each scene was carefully crafted and built around a world so vivid I felt like the characters were right here beside, sharing in on all the action, humor and romance.

Speaking of romantic entanglements, you should be prepared to swoon and cry with love sickness. You may not be prepared for the intensity of feelings and emotions, but you’ll love it, I’m sure!

I promise, while reading this book, you’ll be going, “oooo!” and “Aaaawwww” and “Wow!” the whole time.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars only because I am not a fan of vamps and such, but I give the writing, world building, romance, and character creation 5 of 5 stars!!

  2. This sounds great, Ink. I love the cover!!! I do have a comment to make. It took me about 20 minutes to scroll down this page with your new layout. The side bar keeps pushing its way in front of the scroll button and I could not use my arrow keys on my keyboard either. Just a suggestion for an easier layout.
