Starcrossed

Starcrossed - This book was really good, but it also wasn’t that great. The best way I can describe it is Percy Jackson meets Twilight, and if you know me, you know those are my two least favorite series, so I’m actually impressed by how much I liked it.I kinda liked how Helen and Lucas’ relationship started off as an insta-hate, but it just felt so unrealistic most of the time, and then the Fates disappear and POOF they literally can’t keep their hands off each other. I don’t care if you’re starcrossed lovers, it doesn’t work like that! And then Helen got all mad because Lucas wouldn’t sleep with her, even though doing so would start a war.The supporting characters were probably my favorite part of this whole book. All the characters, especially the Delos family, were funny, smart, and realistic. I just wanted to spend the whole book with them! I loved how the Delos family was always together. That’s something refreshing in YA lit, since most families aren’t portrayed as having that kind of relationship.The plot was really really good. The pacing was fantastic. There’s nothing spectacular about it that comes to mind, but it kept me on the edge of my seat ‘til the end. The ways ancient mythology were tied into the story were so creative and interesting.I’m glad I read this book, and I’ll gladly read the second, but it wasn’t anything incredible.
