Marked (House of Night Series #1)

Marked (House of Night Series #1) - Chapter-by-chapter on my blog.This whole thing is such an utter mess. The writing is woefully dreadful. The author attempted to capture a teenage voice, and to a certain extent she did. But the book ended up sounding like it was a novelization of a 15 year-old's myspace page, not an actual teenager actually going through an actual plot. It was all just mean-spirited jabs and snarky comments and insults and pop-culture references. Nothing felt genuine. The plot was basically taking High School Drama and blowing it out to cosmic importance, without bothering to explain why some sorority group is now important enough for divine intervention. There's enough mean comments in this book to insult literally every reader who might pick it up, no matter who you happen to be. The whole thing is just such a hot mess.
