Starcrossed, Josephine Angelini

I have just finished this book. I loved it.

Maybe love was too strong of a word, but I did really like it. It sort of this Percy Jackson thing which everyone knows that I love and I was instantly obsessed with it. Three days is not enough.

It does this whole play with demigods, and what happens when say, a demigod of Demeter crosses with a demigod of Hecate. What happens, their powers, all that wonderful pizazz that I'm totally obsessed with.

It's actually something like Half-Blood by Armentrout (I tend to call all Authors by their last name), but without the whole Covenant Society thing (but in Starcrossed, they do have their own weird society).

I cannot believe that I'm comparing this book with another book most of you probably have not read. So I will stop.

There is a lot of reference to the past, which I just am in love with (because everyone needs a good dose of History lesson every other time).

The Fates/Furies have a ton of things to deal with this book. Like, I'm not even kidding. I mean, I totally can stand the Furies, but in my mind they are these little ugly beasts trying to break everybody's perfect ship.

Like. What. The. Effing. Gods. Just stop. Do you not see our hearts breaking tragically? You are trying to ruin their epically-perfect-to-the-dot RELATIONSHIP.



Stupid Furies.

But there's not a lot of sadness in this book. Just a ton of confusion and question marks. Which isn't necessarily bad, because I think there is a sequel. I think.

I hate these books (this category includes Percy Jackson, and The Mortal Instruments), because you just love them so much and at the end they freaking RIP YOUR HEART OUT AND SHOVE IT ON THE FLOOR AND STOMP ON IT AND DESTORY IT (I mean, not as much as Cassie Clare does, the way she does it it's like freaking heart abuse).


It's a lovely book. Greekish. Demigodish. Perfect.

Except for the Furies.

Stupid Furies ruin everything. They are like why Bad Relationship Statuses exist. Which is really sad because they like ruin OTPs and major Ships.

But still read it. :)
