Future commenters: if you disagree with the review, that is perfectly fine and normal.
But please keep the ad hominems and accusations ( and not just directed at me, but also other commenters) at home.Everyone 's free to say what they wish on a public forum.
I 've never deleted/moderated comments before, as that goes against my beliefs on free and public discourse, but any future offensive or judgemental/critical-of-people-instead-of-the-book comments will be ignored and deleted.This is a review of a ook, not a fact sheet.
Edit, because I am fucking sick of people coming up to the comments section, especially without reading through the previous pages of comments, and stomp in, guns blazing with accusations of racism and slutshaming.1) Racism/ wtf does Race have to do with anything!?
/ Stop putting irrelevant topics in your eview, bitch!>> please refer to: comment 69comment 742) Slutshaming/ How dare you call her the S word!
/ Girls like you are setting back feminism by a few ecades!
/ Other holier-than-thou commentsFirst of all -- if you 're going to start accusing me of slut-shaming simply because of my usag of the ord " slut ", GTFO.

fugly.The heroine of this book reminds me a lot of those girls.
Well, except she 's not one of the fugly ones.This one sentence wraps it up for me: " I was a pretty dhampir, one who did n't mind getting into trouble and pulling crazy stunts.
I became a novelty; they liked having me around for the fun of it. " Just like those girls know these foreigners only keep them around for the " scary " of it, and would just as easily toss them aside like a used condom.Rose Hathaway is the thin of irl who 'd hook up with a guy just because he 's hot.
I had to roll my eyes every time she described her sexiness ... " I knew I was beautiful, but to Moroi boys, my body was more than just pretty: it was sexy in a risqué way. " " I knew perfectly well that there were n't a lot of girls at this school who looked as good in a bra as I did. " The second one or two times were perhaps forgivable.
But in fact, Rose seems to be only obsessed with looks ( which is odd, considering her " occupation " as a guardian); you 'd think considering what she 's been through, she 'd be a little less shallow than that. " Me. Turning into Alberta.
Never mind how much he obviously cares about her in return.All in all, I just could n't sympathize for Rose.
It seemed the only reason Dimitri and Rose had this vibe going on was because of their mutual hotness ( a word frequently thrown out there in the ook).
Maybe I would 've liked this better if I were ...
