Book review: Amaranth by Rachael Wade

As Goodreads say;

Knowledge changes everything… 

Hoodoo-influenced Southern Louisiana seems like the perfect place for Camille to escape her abusive past and dysfunctional family. She doesn’t expect to fall in love with the handsome Gavin Devereaux and plummet into the world of Amaranth, a place of exile for reformed vampires. 

Wrestling to escape a deadly ex-boyfriend while giving Gavin a chance, Camille is confronted with decisions that threaten not only her life, but the lives of her inhuman friends she has come to love. Entangled in her friends’ quest for freedom, she dives into their realm and faces the threats of Amaranth’s ruler—the mother of all vampires—and her own inner demons. 

Now Camille must decide whether she will derail her life and make the ultimate sacrifice for the monsters that interrupted her bumpy path back to sanity—what she still wants so desperately—or escape with Gavin before it’s too late for both of them.

Personal Opinion:

This just wasn't a book for me. I had to drag myself through it and I wouldn't have finished it if it wasn't for a Goodreads thing. Don't get me wrong, this book was well written and it had a good story but I found myself wanting to stop reading and watch Smallville insted. It didn't capture me. And I don't really enjoy the type of story were the main character sees each other and becomes obsessed fall in love right away. This didn't do it for me. I usally remember single details of the book I just finished. I can recall every inportant event, but now it's just blanc.  It was just a ok read. Nothing more, not for me.

I think others will like this book. It's a love story, a I-love-you-you-love-me kind of thing. They're a cute couple, Gavin and Camille. But when I begun chapter 7 and it still didn't take a hold of me I gave up and just finished the book. I'm not going to read the second book, but I bet lots are. Don't be scared of by my review. This book is great, but not for me. And if some thinks I'm reading into the romance to much right now, it's because that's what I do. That's what I enjoy in a book that's not really enjoyable.


“Don't start that again. It's not my fault you don't have any masculine aprons." 
"That's because aprons aren't masculine, genius." 
"Don't make me have you for dinner, princess." 
"Whatever, Betty Crocker. Knock yourself out.”
