Okay so from the blurb it sounds like the book is going to open with some action right Well it doesn t because guess what The first half of the blurb happens before the book even starts Yeah how exciting I don t even care that this wonderful friend is dead because I never even meet herThis though is the least of the problems I had with Torn I d like to start with something positive and I m finding it hard That s not to say the book was horrible It wasn t It was just okay I received this from a LibraryThings give away and it s taken me almost a month to read it I finally forced myself to take it to the gym and read on the treadmill just so I could finally get it out of the wayThere were so many things I wanted to like about it but I just couldn t So starting there the first thing was the cover The cover put me off right away I know I shouldn t judge the book by the cover and in this case I truly didn t I hate the cover The girl looks boring and pasty and I hate the weird part in her bangs And what was up with the cloth wrapped around her head The blurb is what made me want to read this book and I hope that the next book in the series has a better cover because this one didn t do the book any favorsMoving on from the superficialThe characters oh how they drove me nuts Mo or Mouse as random people call her is supposed to be nice Yes nice We re told multiple times throughout the novel that she is nice one while Verity is the energetic pretty vibrant friendly outgoing special one The problem with nice is that it s boring and we never really see Mo do anything or even say anything that would label her as super nice She has very few interactions with people her own age other than her love interests She doesn t seem like the nice type She s mildly rude to her mom her uncle her lawyer the police and even her love interests and only hangs out with another friend because she doesn t want people to talk about her not being nice and normal Luc is the first love interest to appear and oh what a tangled mess she gets into with him right away He s weird and is pretending to be a doctor and he might have been dating her dead friend Verity But what s so bad about that It s perfectly normal and nice of course to lust after your dead friend s boyfriend at her funeral right See why I don t buy the whole Mo is sooo nice aspect For the first half of the book Luc is weird annoying frustrating and filled with a superiority complex Nothing appealing at all about him yet apparently he s hot and that is enough for Mo The second half he gets a bit better although he becomes a bit boring and predictable then O Rourke it seemed couldn t decide who Luc was One moment he s talking as if he were an old fashioned middle aged man and the next he s using the word ain t Considering the sometimes unusual not is a good way vocabulary O Rourke chooses to use instead of a well placed common noun or verb I m thinking she was often pulling words from the dictionary just to sound smart Maybe this is what happened to LucI did like Colin He was independent distrustful of everyone even Mo and he seemed to have a believable attitude to the world he was living in Too bad O Rourke had to ruin his consistency by having him fall for Mo Considering he s a few years older and obviously has maturity from his life experiences than Mo I couldn t figure out why she appealed to him in the least The kiss between them was steamy though and I ll give O Rourke props for thatThe plot dragged Seriously dragged Like cut the first hundred pages of Mo flip flopping between lusting for Luc and then trying to focus on her dead friend s death all while lusting after Luc just to remind us that Mo is a mature high schooler who doesn t want to be trapped in her hometown forever Oh sucks to be you Colin who will never leave his hometown He s SOL in the seuelThe action once it starts in the last few chapters is confusing and lacking specific details The magic blasted into her the magic blazed around them The nebula consumed her Let the nebula consume her Yes that nebula consumed her twice within two pages There was also something about lines and they were actually an infinity of worlds and lives that crisscrossed and they were beautiful I wished I could have visualized what O Rourke was seeing as she wrote the final scene but alas she didn t give me any detailsThis is obviously part of a series but sadly I will not bother picking up the next book I value my time too much to be bothered spending another month of my life struggling to be interested in these characters and a magical world that I have to create on my ownYou can find other reviews by my on my blog Turning the Pages Grumpy Old Women your dead friend s boyfriend at her funeral right See why I

Torn author Erica ORourke Free download ✓ 105 Read & Download Torn author Erica ORourke O choose between two very different eually dangerous guys protective duty bound Colin and brash mysterious Luc One wants to save her one wants to claim her Which would you choose. First about the Cover I liked it The girl s bangs are a bit weird but I feel as if I m looking at an actual person someone with character rather than just the same girl thats on every other single YA book out there This image sticks out Also Torn s plot held such promise Instead of taking the usual YA book formula and creating the main character with all the powerabilitydestiny O Rourke went and killed that person off No joke the one with the destiny was dead from the start of this book Well not just dead but rather killed off How kick ass is that Not something you read often let me tell you The main character Mo yes that is her name is the best friend of the deceased and ends up becoming the fill in heroine during the story Mo has no power Zip nada All Mo has going for her is a deep friendship for her deader than dead friend and a need for vengence This idea is refreashing and different but thats about the only thing that stands above for this book What I didn t likeMo annoyed me I mean immensely annoyed me The first few chapters of the book she s all gung ho for vengene since her friend was killed Constantly she s thinking about justice and then just as swiftly in the midst of her I have to find the killers cause I promised my dead friend inner musings she switches to Ooohhh cute guy mode This is freaking annoying I don t want to shift gears that uickly How about sticking to one theme and wondering what s my motive Well Mo s motive should have been about finding her friends killer She starts off that way but then uickly zigzags into insta love with not just one boy but twoAnother thing that annoyed me about Mo She s supposedly this smart shy and reserved girl a side kick to the dead best friend That s how every character in the book described her but she acted nothing like that in the book Rather she reminded me of a tiny toy dog constantly yipping at the heels of someone bigger In the book she was immature fighting with her family about her independence yet sulking like a baby when she didn t get her way She was also constantly being told to do something and she always agreed and THEN did the opposite Hell why even act like you agree in the first place It s a waste of my time Another thing that I didn t like was the love interestS Yes you see the S There was two of them As if one wouldn t be enough Mo endes up with two cute guys in her life yes lots of times to be distracted from what should have been her motive one guy is a regular human and the other one has special abilities I didn t care for the whole love intereest parts simply because they didn t seem real Being cornered against a wall over and over again is repetitive not romantic I also didn t care for the slow beginning of this book I m usually the type that can finish a sizable book in the span of three days For Torn I had to force myself to read cause I was simply that bored Now it did pick up speed into the second half which made the pace a little better but the word building was lacking in this book The paranormal aspect the magic etc was only partially explained in this book and often times it felt as if the author just added the paranormal scenes in when the whim arose It was much like thisI m doing my daily chores Eating my daily meal Aww look a unicorn and there it goes Back to doing my daily thing No joke This was probably the most irksome part of this book for me I hated it Especially towards the end of the book with the big fight scene with the bad guy I felt this part was rushed and the author really had no clue how she was going to end the dang story I think this cause I often write by the seat of my pants and my stories always end up like Torn when I do To summarize my feelings on this review Torn was an okay book Not great and not horrible just okay which is why I gave it two starts If anything the finalized version of this book seemed like it was still in it s first draft stages The author could have put some time into this story Tweaked the writting a bit smoothed out the ending and maybe dumped one of the love interests and then Torn would have earned stars This review was originally posted to my blog
