★★—Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi (Original Review: July 14, 2014. Addition made on October 24, 2014)
** spoiler alert ** It was okay. Better than I was expecting. Warnette grew on me, they're pretty cute. But the beginning... it was a little hard to get through. I hold fast that Adam's character was paved over, and that people aren't cutting him slack. I'm also not a fan of love triangles as a general thing, but y'know. It happens. It was alright. I'm glad I finally forced myself to read it.
***ADDITION FROM OCTOBER 24, 2014***
It started out as such a good series. I am pissed that it ended the way it did. To be honest, I didn't give two shits about the love triangle. I didn't want her to end up with either of them. I wanted to learn more about the Reestablishment or whatever that was called, because if I can barely remember what the totalitarian government is called, it's a sad excuse for a dystopia. Look, I love the writing and all that, but the characters... The only ones I cared about were Adam, James and Kenji. And the only reason I didn't care about Warner was because of outside sources, like the freaking fandom. I would've liked Warner as a character if everyone else hadn't been glorifying him and drooling all over him.
The writing is beautiful. The plot/characters/mythology of the society/PRIORITIES leave more to be desired.
