Genres: fantasy

Blurb from Goodreads:

"Lauren, Riley and Apple are outcasts in their high school in Grand Blanc, Michigan when Victoria, a unique species known as ‘Perfects’, enters the human realm and befriends them with her enticing gifts of being superhuman. The three are blown away by the possibilities and are unable to ignore the addictive beauty of Victoria’s colourful realm. 
They sacrifice their old existence and accept her traumatic touch in order to become Hybrid Perfects. Yet soon after their reality is transformed by the unexplainable, not even travelling across the globe through doorway portals is worth the consequences from the white lies told, stealing innocent people’s free will, or the act of cold-blooded murder. Can Lauren, Riley and Apple endure the dark brutality of their new world long enough to take back what they were willing to forfeit just to be superhuman? Can earth survive the Perfect invasion?"

I won this book through Library Thing, and I admit, it took me forever to finish reading it, oh well. I finished it, and that's what matters, right? Right. Okay, good. took me quite a while to get used to all the characters and who had what problem, but by the tenth chapter or so, I was interested enough in the book that I took the book with me everywhere and started reading it in more earnest.

Oh, and the chapters were super short, something I definitely liked.  Woo!

When I first read the blurb about this book, I was excited.

But when the book finally arrived....I....hesitated. Do you know why?

The cover.

You know how people always say "don't judge a book by its cover"? Well, I kinda did....and I admit....this cover isn't the most appealing....although, the story itself was quite interesting....I was the cover that kinda....made me procrastinate on reading this book. If it had a more interesting cover, I'm sure many more people will pick this book'm not sure where I'm going with this....

So! Good story! Wish the cover was a bit more eye catching, there a second book? Because I'd love to read it....the ending wasn't tied up as nicely as I would have liked.

Did a book ever lie to you?!
(read: did you ever read an exciting blurb only for the story to be...."eh"?)
