I’m completely dumbfounded that this book has so far rated at an average of 4.01 stars…
Pagan is a selfish and mentally unstable bitch. I wanted to slap her, slap the holy living shit right out of her face.
So she sees souls and it has been like that since she was a wee babe, but they don’t usually speak to her except for the gorgeous guy with awesome blue eyes and black dreamy hair. Yeah, he talks to her and he sings for her and she is already feeling this kid, like yeah
but she knows that even though she is attracted to him, that she can’t ever really be with him because he isn’t real, so she does the sane thing and gets a boyfriend, Leif.
Then Dank (what the hell kind of name is that anyway?) manifests into a real life boy! Hence the beginning of shameless Pagan; she stares at him, she steals quick glances across the lunchroom and she has the nerve to get mad that he is chatting up the high school floozy…all while her BOYFRIEND is sitting right next to her with his hands on her hips! She doesn’t even care! And to top it off, she only gives a fleeting thought to whether or not she should break up with him! Why? Oh because he was “normal”…so she just strings him along.
Ok, so let me part with this piece of sage advice: Just because you admit you’re being a bitch doesn’t make it right..or make you less of a bitch. You are still a bitch. You are still a raging bitch. Got it? Ok, let's move on.
Then the pièce de résistance! She gets herself admitted into a mental hospital! Yes! A MENTAL HOSPITAL!
Because SHE LOVES DANK TOO MUCH and she can’t have him and now he is ignoring her after their makeout session, which by the way happened at prom when she was there with LEIF, then she had the balls to make her date drive her home and let him believe it was his fault she was in such a pissy mood…with pouty face and all. Bitch. Oh and the hole, that grand canyon sized hole on her heart is just so immense, she just can’t take being without Dank, she can’t eat or breath and life needs to just end (boo hoo!) and yet she still doesn’t end it with Leif. That's right, she lets him come and visit her at the institution, she even holds his hand and nuzzles her nose in his neck knowing damn well that she doesn’t feel anything for him. Effing Bitch.
Ooo Ooo, best part? When the Psychiatrist tells her that she doesn’t belong at the institution because she is normal and healthy…What?!
She belonged in that institution dummy! Sitting right next to that Southern country bumpkin stereotype!
Oh but wait though, she then has the audacity to try and kill herself for Dank! You may now begin to wonder if she even gave a second thought to the other people in her life. Let me save you the effort, NO, she didn’t. Dank is all she cared about, she was going to just disappear off the face of the Earth for a guy that she had known for roughly, ehhh
Are you feeling the warm and fuzzies yet?
Cause if you didn’t already, the ending will get ya and I’m not talking about the “twist”. I’m talking about the bitch tearing out of the school without a second glance to her boyfriend while she makes out with another dude 2 feet away from the school entrance without any shame…just shameless.
And was that “twist” supposed to make me feel better about how she treated Leif? Cause it didn’t. Bottom line:
It was just too much over the top drama. That most definitely wasn’t love; it was a chemical imbalance that requires medication. Pagan you need medication.
But I'm going to read the second installment, cause I want to know what's up with my man. I don't know why exactly seeing as my WTS was in full effect and I was at a level 9 with the ERS, but I want to know what Leif does to make her life shitty, because I wont hold it against him.
