Book Review: Sweet Venom

By:  Tera Lynn Childs
Pages: 345
Published In: 2011

Summary: Grace just moved to San Francisco and is excited to start over at a new school. The change is full of fresh possibilities, but it’s also a tiny bit scary. It gets scarier when a minotaur walks in the door. And even more shocking when a girl who looks just like her shows up to fight the monster.

Gretchen is tired of monsters pulling her out into the wee hours, especially on a school night, but what can she do? Sending the minotaur back to his bleak home is just another notch on her combat belt. She never expected to run into this girl who could be her double, though.

Greer has her life pretty well put together, thank you very much. But that all tilts sideways when two girls who look eerily like her appear on her doorstep and claim they're triplets, supernatural descendants of some hideous creature from Greek myth, destined to spend their lives hunting monsters.

These three teenage descendants of Medusa, the once-beautiful gorgon maligned by myth, must reunite and embrace their fates in this unique paranormal world where monsters lurk in plain sight.

Rating: 2

Review: I actually dropped this book which is really rare for me. I got this book on my kindle because it was free for a special deal, otherwise I am not sure if I would have gotten it since I have so many other books to read.

This book wasn't bad and I don't think it deserves one star even if I didn't finish it. It was meh for me. I was looking forward to it because I really enjoy mythology. I think I dropped it number one I just couldn't connect with the character's and it was taking forever to read it wasn't a book that I felt this urge to finish, other than the fact that I wanted to read something other than this. 

Of the character's I did like Gretchen the best she was just cool but as the book progressed even she seemed to somehow seem less cool. I didn't mind Grace she was mostly normal for a teenage girl and she wasn't perfect at all but she was annoying at times. I only knew Greer for like three chapters because I stopped reading the book, but she was so stuck up. I mean I get that she is rich and has everything, but was almost more annoying than Grace.

I really liked the idea behind the story and it was not a bad book, it just didn't catch my attention. I hope I am not making this book sound too bad because it wasn't awful, it seems that a fair amount of people on goodreads like it a lot so this is just another opinion and review to add to the mix.

Well I hope everyone has a good weekend, because I know I will be so busy doing homework and studying for finals.

  1. Ouch, I think I wouldn't connect with the characters if they sound so bland, either. My friend kept bugging me to pick it up but I was still weary, so I think I'll wait until I do find it fascinating. It actually sounds pretty...drama-y and complicated. XD

    1. Yeah but a lot of people on Goodreads seem to like it so it is just different opinions.
