Book Review: MARKED by P.C. and Kristin Cast

Marked (House of Night, #1)Marked by P.C. Cast

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have to admit that I set this book aside in the first chapter and told myself I couldn't read it--that it was too YA to be something I would really get into and enjoy. However, my sixteen year old daughter had read the first three books in this series and was set on having a novel we could discuss and both enjoy. So at her prodding and questioning, I picked it back up.

I am glad I did. Once I got past a chapter of "K-babble" I was really able to submerge in the story and found it impossible not to root for the MC, Zoey.

Thoroughly enjoyed the read and I plan to get started on Book #2: Betrayed, this week.

  1. Personally, I didn't like what I read of it that much. Maybe it's because I am sick to the gills of teenage romance vampire novels.

  2. You should try Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. It's a really good YA read. It's part of the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy that I'm reading at the moment. Good stuff.

  3. I'm not a typical YA reader either, but I found Zoe's voice and quick wit kept my attention really well. I've read the first six books and have enjoyed the story so far.

  4. @Casper: Will check it out. Thanks :)

    @looney: I didnt read any of S. Meyers vamp novels, so I dont have that burn out thing going yet. Prolly would be different if I had.

    @Joce: Just started book 2 last night. I think we have up to Hunted (#5?) at the house. Casey cant wait for me to "catch up" so we can discuss.

  5. I'm going to give it a look...
