Starting college a year early is hard. Starting fae college and learning to protect the world from the Unseelie is harder.So I have absolutely no idea what to rate this book. My thoughts are so jumbled together as well as my feelings for the book. When I first started Blood Bound, I was really close to DNF'ing it. After about a month or so (I really don't know), I came back to it and finished it in a day because it's a really short read. I had a lot of problems with this book, but by the time I got to the end of the story, I was actually pretty intrigued. I wouldn't say that I liked it, but I also wouldn't say that didn't like if that makes any sense.
Brielle Reed has always been an over-achiever, but this time she may have bitten off more than she can chew. Between her crash course in fae politics, struggles to control her new mind-reading ability, training sessions with the demanding Dr. Schwartz, and discoveries about the father who is still a mystery to her, Brielle finds herself longing for a chance at a normal life.
But she may not get that chance. Or chance at a life at all, for that matter.
I felt this book was all over the place in scene switching. One minute we're here and then the next were there. I also had no connection to any of the characters, but I must say that I did like Brielle's roommate Pamie. She made the story fun. The romance was big part of the story as well as the Unseelie trying to take over. I couldn't get with the romance either. But that's the thing, I didn't like many things, but somehow by the end of the story I was just...okay with the book. I guess what I'm trying to say is that everything was just okay, if that makes since. It was an okay book. I didn't hate any of the character and I didn't hate the romance or the story. I just wish there was some sort of wow factor that would have gotten me excited.
