July 9, 09 Bloom by Elizabeth Scott


I have 42 FOLLOWERS! Woot! I'm so happy about that! Oh. Right. The book.

Bloom is about Lauren, an average girl with the perfect boyfriend, but there's no chemistry between them. When Lauren is reunited with Evan, her old kinda sorta step brother, things start getting complicated.

I saw this in the library and since Living Dead Girl by the same author was out, I decided to pick this up. If anything, if made me want to run in the opposite direction. It started out pretty well, the writing was good, the chemistry between Evan and Lauren was solid and interesting, but then Scott kept on repeating sentences and Lauren was always complaining about how she SHOULD want this or SHOULD do that. The romance started to repeat and become very cliche. All the characters were two dimensional and boring, and I wouldn't want to know any of them. The ending was predictable, and ultimately I got nothing out of this book except the urge to grab a mallet and hurt something. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone unless you have heroines who aren't very likable and cheesy romance. If you want good YA romance, check out Deb Caletti or Sarah Dessen.

Emma Out!


  1. Congrats on your followers! I've heard that Elizabeth Scott is a good author, but I may skip this one. It doesn't really sound like my type of book!

  2. Thanks Lizzy!

    I want to read Love You, Hate You, Miss You and Living Dead Girl. I'm not going to read any of her romance novel books now.

  3. Sorry you didn't like this! I love the cover but I don't think it would be for me either.
