Born at Midnight 3.5 5 September 16, 2015I m going to have to write a review tomorrow I m really tired.September 17, 2015Okay Now I m ready to write this review.I had been seeing this book around in Barnes and Noble as well as some people s shelfs I had read a little about it and I was determined to read the series I have to say though, that I was a little disappointed.The CoverSo I know that we shouldn t judge a book by its cover but, come on We all do it even if we don t mean to This cover is really cool She s standing on a tree that seems to be split down the middle I thought that this could be figurative for choices as if you re in a fork in the road There is fog with white light so you can t see past it which is kind of mysterious Overall, that is a pretty nice cover.The PlotKylie Galen has had a pretty rough life Her grandmother died, boyfriend Trey dumped her, her parents are getting a divorce and she is getting sent to some camp by her mother Kylie doesn t want to go to Shadow Falls with the other bad kids that seem to be there who she later learns to be supernaturals.Being there will vampires, werewolves and many other supernatural creatures, she doesn t feel out of place but for some reason everything she should be She tries to leave but then is conflicted whether she wants to for a couple of reasons Her parents are divorced and she isn t getting along that well with them as well as the fact that she would leave people at the camp Of course there are two guys that can t help but have feelings for as well as her two new best friends.Throughout the book, Kylie is on the search for her true identity as well trying to keep control with it.What I likedThe action There was some action where I was getting a little impatient trying to get to and ended up skimming parts that I had to go back and read.The plot lines There were many plot lines going on during the whole book that were at times hard to keep track of but most of the time is was okay.The depth of imagination Ms Hunter was able to create some things that I wasn t expecting and I enjoyed The history and interactions of the campers were pretty interesting at times.What I didn t like or could have been betterThe characters.I did have a slight problem with Kylie She was whiny and daresay, self centered When there was a problem she got annoyed that she couldn t complain or whine about it to anyone When that someone overcame their problem, she was like good I don t need to worry about that I have my own bigger problems That is what I got out of it at least.Overall, the other characters weren t that well developed They each had one problem that lasted throughout the book I was a little upset about that because I thought that they could have had some interesting pasts because they are, you know, supernatural and had cool abilities.Besides that, at times I got a little bored I know that I above said that there was action but that was only some of the time Other times I was actually skimming and wasn t going to reread it I guess that there was too much description or it was for another reason that I don t remember right now.The love segment It wasn t a triangle but Kylie did alternate about who she liked Derek, Lucas, Derek, Lucas, etc That was a little annoying and I just thought that she didn t need to have someone that she liked all the time If she did, she should choose I did have a personal favorite but I m not going to say who it was I think you all have one if you read this book.OverallI was slightly disappointed with this book and I might want to read the next one because I hate leaving series unfinished unless 1 I either know that they aren t good or 2 I really didn t like the first book Hopefully the characters will get a little better and the boring parts less sparse.So that s it I think that I said everything I had to say. One of the worst books I ve read this year The main character was immature, insensitive, and shallow She compared learning that she was in some way supernatural, with her possibly having a brain tumor All she could talk about was how terrible it would be to have to buy some wigs and that she hoped she had cancer over being not human Are you kidding me The romance was a joke and poorly written I honestly hated it Most of the book she thinks of her ex who was a real sleazeball Then she meets someone that kind of looks like him and decides she likes him Then later a new guy as well The setting was a let down It could have been a lot of fun to read about a summer camp of witches, vampires, werewolves, fairies, etc Like Percy Jackson or something This was nothing, like Percy Jackson The camp was just a way to get these kids away from their parents, but what did they do I still don t even know They went to a couple of camp fires they drew each other s names of course our main character always got the really hot boys and they went and talked for an hour in the woods There were parent days where the parent sat and talked to the kid for an hour and left That s honestly it Another thing that could have been kinda cool was Kylie seeing ghosts But instead she was just in denial for 90% of the book Also I read all 400 pages and never learned what she is Ugh I didn t appreciate the author calling something retarded nor did I like that she referred to something as too gay It shouldn t surprise you by this point in the review that I thought this entire book was poorly written It barely had a plot and what it did have the poorly written characters ruined it The author constantly threw in things that did nothing to further the plot at all At all This was no fun to read and I m honestly shocked that I finished it I do not recommend it, there are much better paranormal books out there if you re in the mood for one. Don t miss this spectacular new series that will steal your heart and haunt your dreams, Welcome to Shadow Falls camp, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren t just troubled Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, witches and fairies train side by side learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal worldKylie s never felt normal, but surely she doesn t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either Or does she They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason As if life wasn t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas Derek s a half fae who s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past Both Derek and Lucas couldn t be different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs Basically the worst book I ve ever read personally Hated the characters, story, how judgemental Kylie was, etc This used to have a review, but then a troll came along, and I realized that this review would probably attract many , so I just took it down. Let s play a guessing game Ready Is it a fairy No.Is it a vampire No.Is it a werewolf NO.Is it a nnoying YES On page 205 of Born at Midnight, the boring, flat, typical main character, Kylie, is in the same position she was in on page 50 I mean exact same position She s at a summer camp for supernatural creatures Her shrink recommended it to her mom because the shrink is half fairy and can recognize the signs of supernatural gifts.OK.SO What is Kylie, you may ask Well, not one really knows No one really wants to tell her, either or the reader for that matter Expecting us to salivate over the possibilities, the author is playing keep away with something that NO ONE REALLY CARES ABOUT ANYWAY Here is an actual conversation from the book between Kylie and her mentor an irritating woman named Holiday who is supposed to come off as intelligent, but gives vague, unimpressionable answers that really just annoy the out of me.Kylie But, do we know I mean, if I am one of you, that I m not like a vampire of a werewolf Holiday I m guessing if you were of that species, we would have seen some of the normal characteristics that are linked to them Kylie But you don t think I m a vampire or werewolf, right Holiday I think that s unlikely Kylie So, assuming I m not human, I m also not a fairy Holiday I didn t say that Kylie Is being a ghost whisper a common gift for elves Holiday Generally but it s not unheard of for others to have that ability, as well Kylie So, what else could I be ARE WE SUPPOSED TO BEG BECAUSE FRANKLY, I M NOT THAT INTERESTED ANYMORE.If you enjoy reading words like holy cow, bejeebies, mo fo, you would enjoy this book If you enjoy trudging through 200 pages half the book and reading the SAME words you read on page 1, over and over and you guessed it over again, you would enjoy this book The author comes across as a 70 year old woman which she is, pretty much who wants to be hip and use teenage language Sorry, c.c hunter, but it isn t cool to spell your name in lower case letters It s also uncool to use words like mo fo and dad gone it, and gosh darn it I could have also done without the pregnancy theme that came across as a rant to teenagers to stop having sex Who does she think she s preaching to This is supposed to be entertainment, and instead it felt like an intensely difficult task Like math homework Seriously.Goodbye c.c hunter I won t be reading anything you write Ever. SUCH AN AMAZING BOOK I SWEAR IT HAS EVERYTHING I LOVE IN A STORY This book doesnt have a love triangle It has a love hyper rectangle I mean the potential love interests throws themselves at the main character wherever she goes.So if youre a die hard Twilight fan this book might be for youThe main character is 16 year old Kylie,her parents are getting a divorce and she keeps seeing this weird figure on her front lawn thats invisible to everyone else but her.To get away from it all she goes to a party that ends badly when the police breaks up the party, with her being arrested because the police who broke up the party found some drugs And then she gets sent off to a camp for troubled teens Troubled teens being an euphemish for troubled supernatural teens.I have to admit I had so many issues with this book.At first I respected Kylie for wanting to save her virginity for someone special,then she let the reader know what happens if you hurry into losing your virginity her friend does You sleep around,start to party hard and wear revealing clothes IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU So basically the author is saying you can be a madonna or a whoreOoIn the end she got a holier than thou personality I especially like sarcasm how she admits feeling good about listening to other peoples problemsSo the main character is a girl who looks down on girls who arent virgins,take comfort in friends problems and twists her father around her little finger hmm well she sounds so nice And the twitching eyebrow thingywas just so so silly.You have to read it just to understand what I mean.And also the your power is like this but were going to imply that your powers are way different Holiday We dont know what you are Kylie But I see dead people Holiday Youre like me a ghost whisperer Kylie So you do know what kind of supernatural I am Holiday Will you leave me alone if I just nod mysteriously and say no This review is also available on my blog, QwertyThis book is like one massive parody of all things paranormal I might like it if I was fourteen The plot is very similar to Hex Hall, at least up until the point where I decided that this just doesn t worth my time.Annoying, self conscious, whiny heroine who thinks she s funny Her life had toilet bound stamped all over it.Suddenly, Kylie started feeling people turn and look at her Or were they looking at all of them Stupid, spineless best friend The she recalled how Sara had given in to Brad s needs Brad who was the love of Sarah s life yet, within two weeks of giving in, the love of Sara s life had dumped her What was so special about that Since then, Sara had dated four other guys, and she d slept with two of them To Sara, fitting in waseverything If blue eye shadow was rave, you can bet Sara would have blue eye shadow before the week was out.I didn t read far enough to know how the love interest, Derek and Lucas are like.Just found out there ll be five books in this series.May God have mercy for all those trees sacrificed in the making of the remaining books. I thought it was pretty good Not a big fan of love triangles but this one wasn t as bad as some Happy Reading Mel Meet Lucas and Derek on the Bewitched Bookworms First of, isn t the cover super super pretty I love that cover and after reading the synopsis I knew I had to read this book and I was happy enough to get my hand on a ARC, woohoo Loved this book It s about Kylie trying to figure out who she really is, specially in terms of supernatural species Kylie is stuck in between the divorce of her parents and this hits her really hard After being caught at a Party where some kids where doing drugs, her shrink poposed to send her to a Camp for special kids There she learns that there is a whole supernatural world out there, Vamps, Werewolves, Faeries, you name it they all exists And this Camp is a place where kids can learn about the other species and learn to live with their special abilities and gifts The Problem is no one knows what Kylie is and she hates being there and being not normal She can see Ghosts We follow Kylie on her journey to accept herself and her supernatural gift and try to find out what she is She s making new friends a Vampire Girl and a Witch And of course there are boys Actually 3 of them gasps Normally I hate triangles, specially since one boy will always loose and I feel bad for him Plus I normally have a pretty good idea with whom she will end up For some reason, it didn t bother me at all here There is Trey , her Ex who is a normal human and was cheating on her but of course now realized that he wants her back Then we have Derek, the Faerie that can sense emotions and is super gorgeous and absolutely lovely and the nice guy I Like him..a LOT Last but not least there is Lucas and he has it all in the hotness apartment, dark hair and bright blue eyes dark and mysterious Derek is the safe choice while Lucas the exciting one The problem is Kylie is not ready to know what she really fells, too much is screwed up right now anyway A dad that forgot her on parents day, a mom that is way too cold and then the journey about finding out who she is Loved this book Love the secondary girl friends she made, love the mystery behind Kylie, love the light romance between Kylie and those boys And Oh boy, those kisses Me always loves good kisses and we get some pretty hot ones in Born at Midnight The book ends with a decent cliffhanger, and I can t wait to find out about KylieI can t wait to find out which boy will get the prize I can t wait for the next book to see where this story goes One thing I want to mention again about the cover It s perfect the Wood the Girl Perfection The next one is perfection too after you ve read Born at Midnight The kids at the camp keep telling about this waterfall and that there is something mysterious about it I can t wait to find out what and from the cover of the next book, it is apparently something important
