SO, when Vampire Girl first came out, I had high hopes. Then, as I read it was another vampire story with a girl deciding between 7 guys I noped outta there real quick. Now again, I was on edge because of reviews saying it was a rather simple story. Alas, I am in a reading slump and keep on dropping books that I have been dying to read. So, I thought, what the hec I've got nothing to lose. And here is my verdict:<br><br>It wasn't terrible. The main character herself, Ari, is kind of a boring Jane Doe but the other characters are great. So much trans love it made my heart full. The idea of 7 princes fighting for the throne was appealing enough. However, there was one major fall through...
The writing was to simple to the point of insanity. The plot was interesting. They carry it out fine even. But there is SO SO SO MUCH lacking in terms of descriptions of...EVERYTHING. I needed more description. More description of hell, more description of Ari's though process, more description of Fen's thought process. Everyone just seemed so shallow. Not because the characters actually are, but because we are given barely any insight into their minds. The world building has so much potential, We get a surface description and nothing else. Essentially the entire book's writing felt like this:
Karpov Kinrade gives us just enough to keep us interested, but frustratingly not enough for us to connect with the world or characters. This writing is to simple. It felt like a draft that was to be filled in later with details...EXCEPT IT WASN'T. <br><br>I mean will I read the next book? Yea, BUT I WANT MORE THOROUGH DESCRIPTIONS. GIVE ME THE FEELS. I WANT THEM.
