Title: Die For Me Author: Amy Plum Stars: 1
I hope that all of these books aren’t going to be terrible. This is basically another Twilight. And I hate it immensely. Luckily, it wasn’t a vampire book, but it did have immortals in it. Revenants and numa. Revenants die over and over again, saving people from death. And numa are the ones who cause death. Although they are immortal, they can age if they stop dying. They are also seen as zombies…? I read a couple of other reviews and they all referred to them as zombies, which I just thought was a joke in the book…
I don’t know what lured me in about the book. Could it be the gorgeous cover? Mhm. Though, now I don’t see the cover as gorgeous. Now I am all like, “What a cheesy book cover!” Everything about this book is cheesy. The characters, the cover, the plot. EVERYTHING!
Let’s start with the characters, shall we? We have the main girl, Kate. Who is Bella. Brown, dull hair. Very pale skin. She thinks that she is very unattractive. She is also described as a normal girl. Though, she is obviously obsessive and weird. But because her boyfriend is too, that makes everything okay!
Lemme tell you: This girl is a hot mess. She cries over everything (that may be something we have in common) and like I said, she is very obsessed with her boyfriend. While he was “dead” she sat next to his cold, dead body and liked it. She felt comfort in her boyfriend’s dead body.
She is that crazy…
And let’s talk about the fact that she shoved her family outta her life, because apparently, Vincent is the only person that really needs to be in her life right now. She occasionally talked to her grandparents. But when it came to her “close” sister, she just ignored her completely. I don’t know if you have a sibling, but unless you actually despise that sibling, you’re not going to shove the sibling outta your life for some other creature. So if you are close with your sibling, you especially do not shut them out. You tell them everything.
And her boyfriend, not that different. While using his magic zombie mojo, he became dormant (he becomes invisible) and stalked her. Multiple times. And she stalked him also… The crazy couples of YA people!
And then, you have the “close” sister. She, in my opinion, not as great as she is described to be. Kate just rambles on about her great sister. I don’t think that she is that great. I think she is careless and that instead of just worrying about Kate, their grandparents should pay very close attention to both sisters. Because despite all warnings, Georgia (the sister) went back to the evil villain, still went clubbing with the villain. EVEN THOUGH THE CRAZY STALKER COUPLE TOLD HER THAT HE WAS BAD NEWS. EVEN THOUGH THEY TALKED ABOUT THE BAD THINGS HE HAD DONE! She just thought to herself, “Bad boys are hot!” Gah! These characters!
And his family… Is the freaking Cullen family! You have the adoptive old man, who watches over the group. You have the newbie that did bad things. You have the sister of totally obsessive boyfriend, who wants to become MC’s bestie. Then, there is the really strong one. And they all live in a really big beautiful house.
While this book has good reviews and obsessed fangirls (like Twilight) I am advising you to stay away from it. Don’t let the pretty covers fool you people!
