¼ Masquerade å Download by ¿ Melissa de la Cruz Again, a whole barrage of info dumping and telling the story than showing it I really dislike stories being told that way I also don t see what s so necessary about name dropping every single fashion designer brand I also feel uncomfortable that the twins are long lost lovers and in this shell they re supposedly brother and sister This series would have probably intrigued me when I was younger, but now Not at all I m sorry that I have to donate all these books that are signed but at least they might go to a home that will enjoy it.
Melissa dela Cruz, this is a filler right Come on, nothing really happen in this book I guess I just have to read the next one since many of my friends considered Book 3 as the best out of the series.
I just don t like that majority of the book was all about partying and hooking up meh that s pretty much it.
I really also don t have a favorite character atm so to speak None of them really strike me as interesting enough to held my interest And I just felt that the character are very similar to the other characters of YA books I ve already read.

One big thing I noticed was the minimal designer name dropping It worked against the previous novel, basically since it made the characters even distant and unrelatable except the fact that they re, you know, vampires and all , since I don t think any reader had any idea who those designers were anyway Also, it sped the story along, since the plot wasn t stalled to go into laborious descriptions of every article of clothing and accessory everyone was wearing Keep in mind that outfit descriptions are in plenty, however, just not to the extent of this novel s predecessor.
With any series, it s nice to revisit characters and their many subpl Reviewed by Randstostipher tallnlankyrn Nguyen for TeensReadToo.
comWhen we last left off with Schuyler Van Alen, she was just getting used to the news of being a Blue Blood, or what we normally label them as, a vampire She gets invited into the New York Blood Bank Committee and, before she knows it, Schuyler is swept away into the unknown world of the Blue Bloods Unfortunately, it seems like Schuyler discovered her true self at the wrong time, since three Blue Blood teens have been murdered Still not satisfied, Schuyler wants information for why young vampires are dying and the only way she can find out is by visiting her grandfather, who lives in Italy And so in Masquerade, Schuyler is off with her best friend to get to the truth But while Schuyler is trying to learn about her new world, the Four Hundred Ball is being held in New York, and it seems like the party, before an
I bought this book yesterday and finished yesterday too.
Urgh I was too intrigued by the first book s whole IDEA to let this one go by without a read I buy books out of habit, one I should VERY much stop until I have read it before since this one too was a waste of my money.
Urgh again More blandness I want to punch Charles force in the face, slap Mimi and the whole Kingsley thing was random and just what was the fracking point Also, Mimi said in the first book that she couldn t remember anything before Roanoke and now suddenly she remembers ROME and PARADISE and Lucifer himself WTF again Mimi just rubs me wrong.
de la Cruz focuses to much on random modeling crap and should focus on scenery and setting and STOP skipping key pieces of time Like, whole hours will go by and she will sum it up in A sentence Come on now Flesh out your stories.
I would rather have a story with to I think the covers on the books of this series are so pretty I enjoyed Masquerade and honestly I was unsure if I wanted Mimi to be saved so to speak because she is really not likeable so far in this series I am starting book three right after lunch and plan to read through this series during this coming week but I really hope they move a bit faster on the romance and revelations I think they will since the sizes of the books are smallish The ending with Dylan s words will make readers grab the next book right away My quick and simple overall enjoyable, quick sequel that leaves questions for readers to continue on.
