Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A little dirty. Not my thing, but not enough to make me feel like I had to put the book down. A few bits I had to skim...
A well-written story, for the most part, but not written well enough that it was particularly memorable, either. I don't know. I liked it. It wasn't anything special or spectacular, really, but I liked it. The author has some neat, fresh ideas (scars that when you touch them show you someone's past... I thought that was particularly inventive) and a fast moving plot that keeps you reading.
A lot of the romance stuff in the book and she made the love interest seem like a REALLY BIG MEANIE HEAD. Then all of a sudden after everything he does to the main girl she just... forgives him. Meanwhile she's also been throwing herself at him and acting crazy and obsessed and then throwing herself at other guys too. That whole middle part of the love story and the book... really ridiculously immature and somewhat irritating. Could have done without it. There were other ways he could have pulled away while not being such a poop and making us hate him. It makes her feelings and obsession towards him unbelievable and made me, as a reader, think she was acting like a doormat. It also made it very unbelievable when they were all-of-a-sudden back together.
