The writing was fun and the artwork was super-cute, but for some reason, there were a couple of key scenes in the second half where I couldn't quite follow the exact logic of what was going on. However, this is where I have to say that I am NOT a visual person, so it's entirely possible that there were clues in the artwork that I wasn't following! And even so, I still enjoyed the whole experience so much. The two bits of action that confused me were very small pieces of a wonderful larger whole, and they didn't stop me from having a great time throughout.
Unfortunately, although I don't regret buying the book, I feel that the story deserved a bit more oomph.
The villain and main threat of the story felt a bit rushed and weak, especially at the climax. The characters all just seem to KNOW or are told offscreen what the villain is and what he wants to do, but the reader is not included in these thoughts so when the reveal comes its more of an 'Oh ok' reaction than an 'OH MY GOD' one. I felt the book was trying to seem really epic at the end, but it simply didn't land.
The relationship between Julie and Selena, which should have been the main focus, didn't have the right impact. I got what they WANTED to do, having Selena's confidence in her werewolfism (?) being a contrast to the more insecure Julie as well as a metaphor for 'otherness', but I feel it should have been shown more clearly. It would have also made the ending 'fight' more powerful as Julie comes to accept herself.
I should also bring up the random excerpts from a fictional book Julie reads which are placed throughout the book. Again, I get that they are meant to link with Julie and her insecurities, but the artwork for these bits felt really lazy in comparison to the rest of the book. These bits could have been cut out without changing anything. There are also excerpts from a fake agony aunt column with monsters, but I thought these bits could be good, especially the one with the jazz singing poltergeist.
On a more nitpicky note, I also felt sometimes the book could be inconsistent. For example, there is a ghost character who can sometimes be punched, but other times objects will go straight through him. There is also another occasion when a character catapults a marshmallow (just bear with me) that hits this ghost, but somehow the marshmallow goes through him the wrong way?? It should have hit him in the back of the head, but goes through his face first.
Overall, I would recommend this book if you really like fantasy monsters or simply want to read something light that has great art. However, if you want something with stronger romance and world building I would look elsewhere. I do think the people who wrote this have talent and when the next book comes out I will probably still read it to see if they have improved. I hope my review didn't seem too negative, as this book is definitely not terrible.. just a bit rough round the edges.
Would honestly die for Chet - I am going to continue this series next year. I might save up and get them physically because they’re SO pretty.
