That sounds so familiarTwilightDo you mind I asked, for he had closed his eyes again No, he said without opening his eyes You can t imagine how that feels He sighed.I lightly trailed my hand over the perfect muscles of his arm, followed the faint pattern of bluish veins inside the crease at his elbow. Rosalie Rian doesn t like Megan at firstR an has a tough time accepting who we are and our purposeI think he s just finding it hard to accept that you would opt in when you have the chance to walk awayNow, who had the same issue Twilight He sighed deeply Rosalie struggles the most with with what we are It s hard for her to have someone on the outside know the truth And she s a little jealousYou re human He shrugged She wishes that she were, tooThere is a Tracker following Megan It s been years since we have even seen a tracker in Ireland Is that what the guy in the theater was A tracker I think so We can t be sure at the moment, but he fits the usual profile There s something different this time, though he s getting around our defenses We just don t know how he s doing itFunny that s just who was following Bella too.TwilightHe s a tracker, Alice, did you see that He s a trackerLove interest serching for a way to protect heroine from the TrackerDon t apologize I hate to see you hurting like that Please believe me when I tell you that I will make you safeDidn t Edward promise the same thing in a very similar situation TwilightSoon, as soon as I possibly can I will make you safe first His voice was hard. A bad guy was snooping around Megan s room and house Adam has his family guarding her, but somehow they manage to slip throughSomeone was in her room, for Christ s sake In her room But I don t think he was still there when Megan got home If he had been, he would have acted right then and there I d say her Mark was sensing that he d been there earlier R an shook his head How is he getting around our senses We ve always known when the Knox are close This is badCan t seem to put my finger on it..oh wait, I can.Twilight EclipseHe was in her room, Alice He could have still been there waiting for her I would have seen that Edward threw his hands up in exasperation Really You re sure Alice s voice was cold when she answered You ve already got me watching the Volturis decisions, watching for Victoria s return, watching Bella s every step You want to add another Do I just have to watch Charlie, or Bella s room, or the house, or the whole street, too Edward, if I try to do too much, things are going to start slipping through the cracksshit damnOh, but the similarities don t end there Right after Adam reveals his feelings to Megan, the very next day he takes her to meet his family And if you remember that is exactly what Edward did after he revealed all his feelings to Bella in the meadow scene Confessions, chapter 13 Aine Alice, Adam s sister also has a sight Fionn Carlisle is Adam s adoptive father Adam admitted to stalking Megan just like Edward did to Bella Megan confides in her best friend, Caitlin, in math class What do you know That s the same place Bella confided with Jessica at Both Adam and Edward s eyes change color interestingly, both share the same original color green.I just couldn t get past all the Twilight references I m honestly baffled at how this book got published with all the shocking similarities because Carrier of the Mark reads just like a Twilight Fan Fic and not a good one I d give this book a freakin A for following the Twilight book disaster recipe to the T, but an all around F FAIL for YA literature I went though several different emotions while reading this book shock, disbelief, finally settling on anger Anger Yes Did the author sit with her editor over tea and crumpets with their Twilight copies on their laps pulling plots, quotes, and carbon copies of the characters Did they really think no one would pick up on the similarities Well, I ll tell you something My Twilight copy is open on my lap right now and I am NOT AMUSED one bit This is something I expect from the usual offender Cassie Clare, not a debut YA author And, man, I feel so bad writing this review I absolutely hate giving a 1 star review to debut authors, but wow I m just blown this even saw the light of day.And what s a Twi Fan Fic without insta love This book has plenty of that and co dependency Keep in mind they have been dating for 2 weeks Let me count the waysI feel like I could take on the world when I m with you I felt a new confidence building I could take on the world with him by my side This felt so real It seemed like my future was suddenly very clear I had a whole new purpose and it all revolved around this boy by my side.Everything else paled in significance I could not live without him As much as it upset me to hurt the others, it was nothing compared to the stabbing pain I felt when I thought of being parted from him And the time that went by, the I realized I could not live without Adam. WTF I m so tired of co dependent relationships Is it a wonder why young girls think they need a boyfriend to survive Are these the ideals we want our youth to grow up learning I don t take issue with Megan being in love, but reading the statements above disturbs me The entire book revolves around how in love she is with Adam, so don t expect much of a plot in this book The major conflict in the story comes out of nowhere and ends before it even begins, just as it did in Twilight.And, OMG the mythology It will make your head spin We learn most of the world through god awful info dumps I read those pages over a few times and I still don t understand Perhaps if the author showed the reader instead of telling us, maybe I would have been able to keep up The only thing I think I understood was that Megan is Carrier of a specific gene that would enable her to produce children to bear the Mark Since Carrier s are rare the Order a society that looks after the Marked specially selects the Carrier s mates I suppose being gay is out if you are a Carrier, because you have a duty to produce babies Anyway, apparently it is forbidden for Adam and Megan to be together because if they have a child it could destroy the world YeahI don t get it either Once finding that out, Megan decides she doesn t want to be a Marked one any and help save the world She wants to be with her Romeo Cause being in love is important than the safety of the world, donchaknow And, please don t get me started on the whole 25 year old pregnancy I can t even.Fallon, you had all this potential The setting was perfect Ireland And you wasted your descriptions on Megan eating her wheaties and putting on her red Converses points to face This is me not giving two shits Cait, babe, you were right I ll leave you with a definition from Webster o rig i nal uh rij uh nl Adjective 1 Belonging or pertaining to the origin or beginning of something, or to a thing at its beginning The book still has its original binding 2 New fresh inventive novel an original way of advertising 3 Arising or proceeding independently of anything else an original view of history 4 Capable of or given to thinking or acting in an independent, creative, or individual manner an original thinker 5 Created, undertaken, or presented for the first time to give the original performance of a string quartet Originality THIS BOOK HAS NONE.And to think this book was on my really looking forward to this book shelf OK, I m done end rant More reviews and at Cuddlebuggery Book Blog.
Okay, I do feel slightly sorry for all that I m about to say in my review, because Fallon does honestly seem like a nice personbut this is just.justtoo much First off, I m pissed Excuse me for a second while I rant, here I M SOOOOOO MAD GOD DAMMIT AWEOIARHW EHRIBENAOR IERU EHBAROE JARE AHHHHHHHH Yeah that s right I m mad You knowwhyJust let me say that, if you put my name into a book, and actually spell it correctly It s CAITLIN, people, not Kaitlyn, Catelyn, Katelyn, Katelynn, or any of that other shit, it s CAITLIN then that character had better be one of the awesomest people that I ve read aboutin my whole life I m sorry, but if you put my name into a book, I can t help comparing myself to them and seeing how they stock up, and Fallon s character was a fail She talked like a fucking middle schooler, and was in and out of a relationship with this bastard about five times during the whole book She seriously talked like this Caitlin I heard from Danny who told Molly who told Anna who told me that he kissed a girl seriously that s what she said the names may have been different, but that s the gist of it Whaaaa I hate him I m breaking up with him Caitlin I m getting back together with him because I lurveee him Caitlin Whaaaa I hate him Caitlin I love him GAH Let me tell you all something I would never break down and cry so much over a guy and get back with that bastard about five times if he d cheated on me That little motherfucker isdeadto me at that point If he has theballsto do that, then he can go share what little he has left with some other bitch Not Me.If you can t tell, I hate it when girls are so damn co dependant on guys Grrrrr I refuse to call her by her actual name She will now be known by the name potato Anyways that brings me right up to my next point This Book Is Twilight New Moon Breaking Dawn Avatar Shit Pure fucking shit.Okay.so let me tell you all a story of the main plot line and see if it sounds even thetiniestbit familiar with a very popular book series and TV series Sooo Bella Megan moves to a faraway town called Forks with her clueless, single, father Charlie and knows absolutely no one, but goes to school and immediately makes friends with a girl who doesn t really like her, one who does like her, and two of the school s most popular guys even though she didn t have friends at any of her other schools she attended She s pretending to pay attention although she really can t do that when she s trying when she sees a group oftotahly hawtpeople when Jessica Potato tells them her they are all siblings and the most beautiful people in school, but don t date anyone and shoot any girl guy down when they ask, so there s a lot of jilted lovers The siblings are the bubbly, short, pixie haired, Alice Aine and the hot but totally unavailable Rosalie Rian, and have a very kind and respectable father Carslile Fionn, but her world comes to a crashing halt when she sees Pedward Adam While she sits there drooling while they walk away Jessica Potato precedes to tell her that he s the hottest of the three, but also the most unavailable Fast forward about three days Someone else s clueless idiocy almost kills Bella Megan via car mangling boat incident but Pedward Adam jumps in and saves her at the last second Bella Megan proceeds to get medical treatment while Pedward Adam makes sure that she s alright Fast forward again and she sees even weirder shit out of the Cullen DeRis family, so she s brought to their home, who no one else has ever seen before, and they tell her their big secret they re vampires they re Marked And this is where shit gets crazy Toph Aine is an earthbender, Zuko Rian is a firebender and Katara, the main love interest Adam, the love interest, is a waterbender controls water, and Megan is a very powerful airbender who is meant to save the world can control the air around her and is meant to save the world Twilgiht how I hate theeI ll just continue from here in non story mode There are seriously so many Avatar Twilight similarities I will bring up a couple later as well that it s crazy She even goes into the Avatar state that sounds exactly like it was done in the show Here, let me show you I suddenly realized that I was up in the air high above them I appeared to be radiating a bright light The air around me swirled until Icould no longer see the land River water started rising up and spinning around me Next the boats lifted, then some trees, their great roots torn from the earth by the brutal force emanating from me It was a massive vortex, spreading out farther and farther until the riverbed was visible, the water swirling high above it The boats and the trees that had been tugged up swirled so fast that their outlines became a blur I saw the object of my rage running away He was making for the woods, but I pushed out the great vortex of moving air and debris so that he stayed constantly in my sight There was no way he could break through its impenetrable wall You, I snarled My voice was not mine It was a mixture of howling wind and cracking thunder You will pay I clasped my hand, as if to pick up his little body far below me on the ground, and he rose right into the air until he was at my level I m sorry I m sorry he screamed, flailing his legs and trying to shield himself from my glare Too late for that My voice reverberated around the valley I saw them waving up at me, but I was beyond caring what they wanted The power inside engulfed me, took over my very core, and it needed vengeance Yeahhh she s the fucking Avatar.Now, I normally start off with the girls when I talk about characters, but Adam just pissed me off so much At parts which I basically mean the whole time he acted like of a needy little girl than Megan ever did, but, at the rare points when he wasn t, was one of the biggest douchebags that I ve ever read about I honestly think that he s a schizophrenic Patch rapist kidnapper No joke Because here s some quotes from whiny ass AdamI m sorry, he said, shaking a little That s never happened to me before He slumped into my arms and I held him What I feel is real I just know it is, he whispered Please believe me No, don t stop No I shouldn t have come in here He sat up Please don t go It s just that my head gets so fuzzy when I m with you I m not going to spend much time on him being a such a whiny girl, because his douchebaggery and rapist kidnapping annoyed me so much , but does that quote honestly sound like something a guy would ever say If anything, it sounds like what I hear female protagonists saying totheirlove interests Honestly, I don t give a shit if she was trying to make him sensitive she did it thewrongway He comes across as needy and obsessive And she he seriously needs to grow some balls If you re going to go over to a girl s house and startmaking out with her in her own bed either do it and have sex with her or just leave her the fuck alone I really just don t care about how fuzzy you are or not Speaking of obsessive, I m going to spilt up Adam s personalities into two categories 1 Bastard Adamwhatever happens, we stay together Fionn will fight to the death to protect you and what s best for you which, incidentally, is me, he added with a sly smile he gave me a wry smile Do you think I would hand you over for training if I didn t think you were up to itThis side of Adam was probably the most annoying of all the three first off, Adam, you ve been dating this girl in the second quote that I listedfor about one fucking weekYou have absolutely norightto hand her over because she doesn tbelongto you She s her own person and doesn t need you, a controlling bastard, dictating her life and telling her what to do and who she can and cannot train with She can train with whomever she wants to, so shut up before I fucking make you And you arenotthe best thing for Megan you re the one who got her into this insanity in the first place She needs to decide what s best forherselfnot you telling her what s best At this point, you ve only been dating her for maybe a month and, I m sorry, but there s no possible way that you could know her well enough to know is or isn t best for her 2 Patch Rapist AdamHe pushed me up against a tree Oh, I have ways of convincing you that you chose right He kissed me with such passion it left me breathless I ampissed As a little aside, this is going out as a PSA to all girls This isnotand never will be romantic If a guy that you ve never really talked to before comes up and says I have ways of convincing you that you chose right pushes you up against a tree, and starts shoving his tongue down your throat, that is what most people around the planet like to call sexual assault, not romantic and passionate And Adam Stop being so much like Patch Seriously you do not walk up to a girl and do that That is not in any way socially acceptable orrightMaybe the girls in Ireland like it that way although, I must admit, Irish Traveler culture does have a tradition where a guy has to kiss a girl by the end of the day during festivals and gatherings but you re not a Traveler and neither is Megan, so you have absolutely no excuse for doing that And if you do, you should get a swift knee to your manhood, not have a girl fall in love with you And basically every time they kiss, he ends up grabbing her roughly and doing passionate kisses even if it s basically about jack shit Their relationship basically goes like this Megan Hey, I moved fire about a foot Adam OMIGOD THAT S AWESOME LET S MAKE OUT Megan Hey, I just stopped you from destroying a whole city because you kidnapped me Adam OMIGOD THAT S AWESOME LET S MAKE OUT Megan Hey, I just took a shit Adam OMIGOD THAT S AWESOME LET S MAKE OUT Megan Hey, I Adam I DON T GIVE A FUCK LET S JUST MAKE OUT Sigh.Oh, and get this at one point in this book there s a scene where Adam and Megan, after having only been dating for around a week, are asked to not be a couple because of The Great Separation Fail I ll talk about this soon Megan begins to move away from him about two feet to try and figure things out for herself when Adam flips his lid He begins shaking, sweating, and he grabs her by the arm and refuses to let her go, so basically, this guy is kidnapping her To further support said kidnapping he then demands that they let him out with her or else and drags Megan outside with him, regardless of whether or not she wants to.And there you have it, my friendsThisis the guy you re supposed to love, be obsessed over, and believe is truly respectable boyfriend without rape fantasies Do you think I do How about you just guess my answer to that question.Now we finally get to the MC, of this story Megan She is literally one of the most copy cat Bellas that I ve ever read about in a novel She doesn t pay any attention to anything or anyone around her except for Edward Adamine then proceeded to tell me all about every shop giving me every last detail about a pair of killer heels she had bought I listened, feigning interest, but kept a close eye on Adam She can t stand to be apart from him for than twenty minutes, even one week into their relationshipThere was a knock at the door I wonder who that could be, ine said, rolling her eyes I ran to the door, needing to see him I pulled the door open and fell into his arms I breathed a sigh of relief Adam She believes that for anyone older than 30 to have sex is incredibly weird especially if it s her dad CharlieI was thankful the timer started going off, and I ran to drain the pasta I wasn t sure whether to laugh or be horrified My father Sex Yikes And at every small touch and gesture, she literally explodesWith you here, I m ready for anything, he said quietly, and kissed me softly on my mouth I reeled from the sensuous touch Here s a picture to further illustrate said explosion She also gets pains whenever she s away from her hubby Everything else paled in significance I could not live without him As much as it upset me to hurt the others, it was nothing compared to the stabbing pain I felt when I thought of being parted from him And, oh, mypersonalfavorite is when Adam admits to stalking her and sending the crow to watch her while she was naked in the shower, but she s concerned about the crow than what Adam just admittedI ve been watching you stalker style, even when I couldn t see you He even had me hounding you, ine put in As you surely have guessed by now The crow I looked at her in astonishment He was watching meDo I really need to say anything The proof is in the quotes, my dears We might as well take out the M,G, and N, and replace them with B and two L s, then she will be just like her Okay, so I ve been holding off on this next little tidbit of information, but I can t any longer Fallon seriously hasthe worstform of plot continuation what is supposed to put a block between the love interests EVERThe scribes tell of a twenty five year pregnancy, which devoured B binn as the creature within absorbed her element and every drop of life she had in her Then it launched itself on the world in the form of a plague a plague that wiped out half of Europe Oh, dear Lord have mercy.Are you trying to tell me, Fallon, that because two previous marked had sex, they made a baby that stayed in the wombfor twenty five fucking years and became the black plagueAnd that s why Adam and Megan can t be together No Nonononononono That is not even remote possibility that I will accept If the baby kept growing like a normal one would, then do you know howhugethe mother s stomach would have to be to contain that It would have to rip first long before the baby even came out And what the hell did the baby do Wouldn t people, you know, maybenoticesome huge ass creature walking around killing people Maybe, justmaybethat would come up in a daily conversation I don t know like this, maybe Pesant 1 Lookith o r yonder at that Pesant 2 gasps I seen thine beast shouts ere it comes Pesant 1 To pitchforks To arms All YAAAGHHHHHH FOR NARNIA LLYON Oh and did I fail to mention that also because these two people were in love they made an ice age So interestingThe last thing I m going to talk about, here, is Fallon s total fail at describing any kind of description for the reader Whoever was the editor to this book, I would just like to say to them Seriously It s badI think you re beautiful, and I think I m mentally stable He laughed, then made a crazy face.Okay seriously, Fallon, give me a hand, here There s only so far I can go with that What kind of crazy face did he make Did he do something with his mouth, screw up his nose and squint his eyes, what I had to try to look up my own crazy face, and this is what it got me Yeahhh I m pretty sure that s not what he looked like Through this whole damn book, I m practically begging Fallon, with big kitty cat eyes, to give me better description of others and what they do.And I m pretty damn irresistible in the cuteness department, I can tell you that.But what do I get More and and shit that Fallon used because she couldn t think up anything else to sayLet s see if we can spot the White Lady He put on a ghoulish laughEveryone burst out laughing I made a face she made a puking sound Does anyone else notice howelementarythese descriptions sound I made, she made, he made, he put on, etc Fallon, you supposedly graduated from third grade many, many, years ago, so I m expecting a bit than that from you, and alotfrom a published author, who should have control over what the fuck she s saying To end this review, I l give you all a quick recap of what I thought in picture form.Everyone was a Twilight re make image error I feel bad about what I m about to do Honestly I m not one of those people who just writes snarky, mean spirited reviews, just for the sheer black hearted, puppy kicking glee of it As tempting as that sometimes it, I just am not that reviewer generally I like puppies And Leigh Fallon seems like a really nice person, and I had high hopes for this book And everything I m about to say makes me feel like a bully, but no Just no.I knew almost immediately that I was not going to like this book You may be asking yourself, then, why the hell I kept reading Generally, I would not But there were a few reasons in this case 1 When it s a book I requested, and it s for an event like this, then I absolutely will make myself finish.2 I was curious enough and it was a quick enough read that I was willing to give it a chance and then at a certain point, when you get so far, you just can t back down.But mostly 3 I kept noticing these little things that added up to one very big thing that were driving me out of my mind, so I had to finish it just to see how many I would come across The little things are spoilery and rant like, and OHMYGOD I could go on about them forever, but instead they comprise a chart at the bottom Read at your own discretion Beyond the one very big thing comprised of little things, I never connected with the writing in this The characters speak like they re in an after school special It was strange by turns formulaic, other times robotic, and often just not natural They were caricatures rather than characters, and they crossed the line into cheesy one too many times for my liking It was all these stupid, seemingly insignificant things for example people don t generally say each other s names a lot in conversations If someone were to speak to you like this Hey, Mary What are you doing later today, Mary I was thinking, Mary, that maybe we could go to the mall what do you think, Mary you would be like, WHY THE F CK DO YOU KEEP SAYING MY NAME It s weird It s uncomfortable And it makes it seem like the characters aren t well acquainted, like they aren t comfortable enough with each other to just talk.Sort of in line with that, the characters have a tendency toward woodenness Megan s dad is ridiculous, as cardboard and saccharine as they come There s never any tension or discover with any of the characters because they are all basically what they enter the story as, and what you are expecting them to be Rian is the only one who changes ish , but the rest pretty much leave the story as they entered it.And I think this is emblematic of the problems with the book as a whole there isn t enough depth and tension There s an immaturity to the writing that deprives the story of tension, of struggle, of that key element that makes you sit on the edge of your seat Instead, everything is obvious and the reader is hit over the head with it But worse, everything comes so easy Megan accepts what she is too easily, she transitions into the deRis family too easily, she and Adam fall in love too easily, become comfortable with each other and the situation to easily everything just happens and it s not really built on any kind of foundation other than I say so The monk and the bird and the rumors and the OBVIOUSNESS of it all, and the suddenness and the easy acceptance the way is cleared time and time again for things to just happen and as a result all chances at the delicious tension readers crave is killed There s never very much of a struggle on Megan s part to understand or accept this whole new way of thinking about the world and herself It s frustrating.The only thing I can really say in its favor is that it did actually start to pick up at one point The only thing isthat was 200 pages in And for a review, I ll stick with it, but for pleasure, you are NEVER going to get 200 pages out of me before I can call it enjoyable That book will be put down like a rabid dog And on the note of understanding , I do have to make a mention of the times when understanding does not come easily to Megan There are times huge swathes of the story when Megan s intellect and powers of comprehension seemingly revert to that of a 4 year old Every time one of the deRis begin to tell her of the history of the Marked and all that jazz, she peppers them with why s and what about s and I don t understand s and but s and it s all a sneaky little set up for Fallon to do massive amounts of info dumping in the guise of dialogue I mean, paragraph upon paragraph, page upon page of convoluted, over sharing info dumps, with set ups you can see coming a mile away All for the sake of trying to explain what is a fairly strained mythology and backstory It just no.Just no.And now The Little Things aka The Carrier of the Twilight Mark by Leighmeyer Stephallon or, The Tale of an Epic Rip Off unless Misty is just hyper aware of these things
