My Review:

*Using the Melody of Friday by Rebecca Black*
Its Tris and Izzie, Gotta get down with Izzie. Gotta make your mind up, which boy will you taaaaake? Well, the one that's mentioned in the cover you stupid.
I'm not gonna hate here, but I am going to be honest. Here I go:

Reading Tris and Izzie was like listening to Rebecca Black's Friday, I was constantly stopping and asking my self, seriously? this is for real? I mean, seriously?? There were scenes that I guess were supposed to be scary and to get my heart racing, but all I kept thinking was that it was so stupid... I know its harsh, but it was just dumb.

I thought the Characters were inconsistent and Izzie was just so irrational and selfish.

The novel circled around the good subject of Love, but I just think that it wasn't done properly, which brings us to what is is: A Crappy Novel.

Thanks to Netgalley I saved a few dollars, since the cover is so gorgeous that I am sure I would have bought it without thinking.

Took me Forever to read it. I guess that if you liked Friday by Rebecca Black, this is for you. If not then.... just don't get close to it O.O


"A story is not always a lie," said Tristan. "Some stories are truer than truth."
Truer than truth? That sounded like something liars made up to tell people who found them out."
