This is the second time I’ve started writing a review while reading the book. I guess I’m going through the bad-books syndrome lately which according to me is a syndrome where you intentionally read a book which you know you will want to bang against the wall or which will make you bang your head against the wall. Either way I am suffering from that. I just found out that the second book to Mythos academy was out and I just couldn’t resist. I had to make myself suffer reading this book.Oka [...]
Rating: a 'This book pisses me off way too much' zero star. (Link: vampirekikiviantart/art)It's just another shitty YA book, another author who doesn't have the heart to write a decent story but got paid for writing craps anyway, Jennifer Estep, I'm blacklisting you.As if the lack of originality isn't bad enough, as if ripping off Harry Potter and Vampire Academy isn't bad enough, as if all the cliches and the stupid main character aren't bad enough; Jennifer Estep just has to go out of her way [...]
Am I allowed to be happy? I feel like it's been a while since I've had the warm fuzzies about darn near anything. It was starting to make me feel like I'd broken something in my brainuntil I picked up book 1 of this series, then went immediately into book 2. Skeptical Stacia has temporarily left the building in favor of Swoony Stacia. I promise that I'll be back to my regularly-scheduled, jaded-self tomorrow.It's as if I've been on this merry-go-round of "same story, same ahole guy, same everyth [...]
Brauche den nächsten Band :)
EVERYONE! CAN I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE! YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK. IF YOU DON'T, I WILL SEND VIC AFTER YOU!OMG! I. LOVEDISOK. I mean really loved. Loved it so much that I want to bathe in the literature if I could. (You know I would too! LOL)This book is the bomb diggity. Right from the very first page, I felt the anxiety and excitement of reading every goodness of the page. The plot was dynamic. Filled with action, fighting, major flirting, and forbidden love, I fell in love with this book. I [...]
Mhh, irgendwie ist das Finale in Band 2 genauso wie das Finale in Band 1 und bin ich davon gelangweilt, aber gleichzeitig will ich wissen, wie es weitergeht. Mmpf.
I think I liked this one even more than the first. Favorite scene was the avalanche and the wolf. The heroine has such a cool power. It reminds me of old school Heroes. Loved that they all have different abilities. Adding the next one to my tbr list right now.
I liked the concept, and I enjoyed the story; however, my enjoyment was marred by the writing. I felt as though the author copied and pasted entire sentences, if not paragraphs, from the first book in the series. I understand the author wanting to provide backstory for individuals who accidentally read this book first, but to provide the explanation verbatim felt like lazy writing and detracted from my overall enjoyment of the story.I also find it hard to like the heroine. Harry Potter had four [...]
Endlich habe ich, Vee, Freunde gefunden. Endlich, hat der Freak der Mythos Academy Freunde. Doch ICH, mit meinen violetten Augen, bin immer noch nicht beliebt. Immer noch bin ich das seltsame Gypsymädchen, dass SO EIN FREAK ist. Aber oh weh, da ist ein süßer Boy, der NUR MIT MIR flirtet. Auch, wenn ich ihn gerade einmal seit fünf Minuten kenne, weiß ich, dass er MICH WILL. Oder doch nicht? Denn ich bin doch SO EIN GROSSER Freak. Er kann mich nicht wollen, auch, wenn ich ihn will. OH WEH, wa [...]
Wieder sehr gut, Acer etwas schwächer als der letzte Teil, weil viel wiederholt wurde und mir es sehr vorhersehbar war.
Das Ende ist ja süß. ♥ Trotzdem waren es eigentlich nur Gwens Fähigkeiten, die ich mochte, den Rest eher nicht.
Хорошая серия. Ни великолепная, ни шикарная, ни плохая, ни ужасная, а именно хорошая. Этакий твердый середнячок, который понравится фанатам «Перси Джексона» и «Академии Вампиров». Серия представляет собой смесь мифов и типичный приключенческий YA, читается буквально взахле [...]
Tolle Fortsetzung, zeitweise etwas viele Wiederholungen aus Teil 1, trotzdem total spannend und interessant. Ich liebe die Protagonisten schon jetzt!
4.5 stars!!!Loved this sequel! What a great continuation of Gwen's journey at Mythos Academy. This was as action packed as the first. Lots of shit happening and sword fighting and magic and all the great stuff we've experienced in Touch of Frost. It was a lot of fun. Ienjoyed it I loved the characters. Loved them all. First of all, Daphne. Let me say, I didn't care for her in ToF. She was such a bitch. I was sure I'd hate her. But. I was wrong, so wrong. She changed a lot, she grew a lot. She wa [...]
Kiss of Frost is the second book in Jennifer Estep's Mythos Academy series and it pretty much takes place only a couple weeks later from where Touch of Frost ended. I really liked Touch of Frost, but I enjoyed Kiss of Frost a lot more. I think what I like the most about this series is the relationship between Logan and Gwen. The way it plays out and how at first I want to hate Logan so much, but just can't. I love it! I also really like Gwen's powers. I know there is a down side to it, but who w [...]
Quick review:Cover: Nice Rating:PG-13 Thumbs Up:4Overall: I’m really liking where this is goingCharacters: Well WrittenPlot: The Winter Carnival isn’t fun and games least not for GwenPage Turner: Yes Series Cont.? Yes Recommend:YesBook Boyfriend: OliverSUMMARY (50 words or less)This second book really heats things up. Again, I’d figured everything out long before Gwen, but I wonder if that’s not by design of the story. But also, I’m not the target market so maybe it’s just that. Stil [...]
Angry-at-the-world girl Gwen is at it again. She hates everyone at her school because they're so good and she's not (she admits it herself). She hates that they were so good at this fighting stuff and she's a novice, never mind that they've been doing this since they started walking and she's been only at this for a year. Oh, and they SUCK because they're rich and flaunt it, never mind that her family is well-off too but her mother and grandmother decided to raise her as a normal girl. Totally n [...]
Zum Ende hin hat es mich etwas genervt, dass der Fokus so stark auf Gwens Mutter lag. Der eigentliche Höhepunkt war bereits 40 Seiten davor, wo Band 2 prima hätte enden könnten.Trotzdem, die Geschichte hat mir sehr gut gefallen und dieser Teil war sogar noch etwas besser als sein Vorgänger. :)
The story of Gwen Frost being Nike's new champion continues. Doing so she stumbles into a lot of trouble. A lot of trouble. // 2.5 stars
This is the sequel to Touch of Frost; even though this should have been rated 1 star, I’m generously giving this three. I know I said I wasn’t going to read the rest of the series, but the book has so much potential. It does. I have to admit, I kind of… you know… enjoyed it. But I thought the author left some of her old habits behind on the Touch of Frost, unfortunately she didn’t….I really can’t stand how the author is writing unnecessary comments. Jennifer Estep, adding ‘smack- [...]
As a huge fan of TOUCH OF FROST, I couldn't stop myself from doing the happy dance when KISS OF FROST arrived on my doorstep. TOUCH OF FROST ended at such a point where I went insane from the dire need to find out what happens next! I am so, so, so, so happy with where Estep went with this one. The characters are further developed, the action is still there, and there is still mucho chemistry between Logan and Gwen. KISS OF FROST kicks it up a notch, so much so that I am expecting a lot from the [...]
Previously Published on my blog: Welcome to Larissa's Bookish LifeI have recently been on a Paranormal Y.A. binge and after being so turned off by the genre for a while, I am so happy to be back on the horse.Even though the Paranormal YA genre is still hit and miss for me, there are some incredible series that can’t help but fascinate and enthrall me. Jennifer Estep’s Mythos Academy is definitely one of those, even though it’s one of the newest in my TBR.I loved Touch of Frost back in July [...]
I've officially decided that these books are like cotton candy fluff. Terribly bad for you, but sometimes you can't help but devour it anyway. 8| Or maybe I should say deep fried twinkie. Somewhere up there, anyway. These books take cliches and just keeps on piling it on top of one another. They're also hugely predictable, and if people claim otherwise, they are filthy liars. Gwen doesn't stop angsting about her situation (especially her situation with Logan, sigh) and she thinks that people are [...]
2-2.5 starsAnother reviewer said it well, "the books are entertaining, they just aren't that good." I enjoy the story and I truly love the mythology. Thankfully the author figured out that we didn't need to know the first and last names of every character every time they come up; however, there were still lots of repetitive descriptions and phrases. Also on a sad note, Gwen was actually really dumb in this book. Once again I figured out who the villain was long before our heroine did. I want her [...]
DNF - no rating!I tried and failed. To be fair, the first book in this series was a letdown. It sounded something between Percy Jackson and Vampire Academy. The first book was standard YA paranormal with all the expected elements and clichés. That's good enough to get a three star if done well. Kiss of Frost though, is too stupid for me to be able to finish. I got to 30% and by then it was more or less a complete ripoff of Frostbite, Richelle Maed's second book in her Vampire Academy series. Al [...]
Originally posted on yareadsGwen Frost is back and she's finally settling into a rhythm at Mythos. She's training every morning before classes with Logan and two of his Spartan friends, and her free time is divided between gossiping with new BFF Daphne, visiting her grandma, and working at the library. Things seem all right, until her life is threatened once again. She knew a Reaper of Chaos would come for her eventually, but she didn't realize she'd be in such danger on campus. Which is why Dap [...]
Reviewed at bookstobrightenyourmoodspIf it's even possible,I enjoyed reading Kiss of Frost even more so than Touch of Frost!And believe me when I'm saying that Touch of Frost was among the few new YA paranormal titles I loved this year!Kiss of Frost picks up a few weeks after the ending of the first book and continues the story of Gwen,her adjusting as Nike's champion, her copying with her unrequited love towards Logan and her life in general at Mythos.This book has everything a good paranormal [...]
4.5 starsIt's not often that I say this, but this book was SO much better than the first. I really liked this first one, but this one wasn't so bogged down with the whole learning myth legends and having Gwen learn about who she is. Though it was a bit predictable (Oliver, Logan and Preston), I liked how Estep developed the story and moved it right along.My ONLY complaint about this book is I wish there was more spark. (view spoiler)[I remember thinking why is Logan being such a butthead (though [...]
Dropped at 41%What a train wreck!!! I wish somebody warned me! All this book is doing recapping the previous one. I've already read the first book. I know what happened there so I dont know why the author keeps recapping it! Why act like these characters are new, like you are introducing them now while you've already did that in the first one?! Seriously why?!! Cant you find some new stuff to write?! Cant you find a better way to fill the blanks?!I'm definitely staying away from this series and [...]
3.5 Sterne So viel ist sicher, die Mythos Academy Reihe ist perfekt dafür geeignet, beim Lesen die Welt um sich herum zu vergessen!Ich bin nur so durch die Seiten geflogen und die Figuren sind mir, jetzt wo Gwen sich nach und nach eingelebt hat, echt ans Herz gewachsen. Ach, wie gern würde ich auch diese Schule besuchen. Das wäre trotz der bösartigen Schnitter sicher tausend mal besser als meine FH. Oh Mann, weshalb fängt das neue Semester morgen an 😭😭😭 Aber egalToll fand ich auch, [...]
