Review: Scare Crow (Crow’s Row #2) by Julie Hockley

Nineteen-year-old Emily Sheppard is losing her sanity. Ever since her mob king boyfriend, Cameron Hillard, abandoned her for her own good, Emmy has been attempting to move on with her charmed college student life as if nothing happened. Now rejected from the underworld and left grieving over Cameron’s alleged death, Emmy realizes she belongs nowhere. Worse yet, she is now keeping a dangerous secret. 

After just a short time with Emily, Cameron has lost control over his world. As he miserably attempts to return to what is left of his life and unravel the mess he has made of the underworld, Emily’s hate turns to desperation. She needs to kill the kingpins responsible for Cameron’s death before they come looking for her. As Cameron secretly observes Emily, he has no idea of the danger he has placed her in—or that it may already be too late for him to save her. 

Scare Crow is a tale of revenge, terror, and love as Emmy and Cameron embark on separate journeys to face enemies, correct past mistakes, and find their way to their destinies

My opinion:

I read this book the day it was released. I couldn’t believe that it was finally out. I waited a long time for it, but probably not as long as others. I only waited a few months compared to those who had to wait three years.

I was so excited and so happy that I finally get to find out what truly happened in the last book. Sadly, soon after starting the book I realized that my wish will not come true. This book does not give us to many answers, instead it makes us question everything even more.

Don’t get me wrong. The book is brilliant and extremely well written. The author improved her already great style of writing, but the plot was not as captivating. I missed the love story. For me, this book, felt life a filler. I don’t even know why I am surprised. Usually the second book in a series feels like that.

The book has alternative POVs which is great because we can learn about the two main characters. We learn what each was doing at the same time. I preferred Emily’s POV to be honest. I couldn’t care less about what Cameron was doing. Don’t get me wrong, I adore that character, but in this case the only scenes that actually interested me were those in which he thought of Emily.

I sided with Emily right from the beginning. I thought that his plan was idiotic, but in a way I understood what he was doing. I talked to several fans of this series and I get that they are upset, but I can’t be. I did not like it, but that does not mean I do not get why he did the things he did. It sucks to be left behind, it sucks when people do not talk beforehand and decide together, it would save a lot of heartache, but in real life it happens, and it is not an uncommon event.

Emily annoyed me quite a bit as well. I thought that she could have done things slightly different so that her life would have been easier. I know that you cannot mess with pride, but in her situation, I don’t think it would have mattered. In the end she did try which made me change my mind a bit. From that point on I started liking her a lot more. She took matters into her own hands and not just acted on impulse. She went from being Bella Swan and transformed herself into Nikita ( not quite, but almost).

 

Overall, I enjoyed this book, especially the end which clearly point to some sort of HEA. It is a love story after all.

From me: 4/5

My comments:

This story might become a movie according to Cosmopolitan (read the whole article here).

I don’t really know anything about One direction, I don’t really want to learn more, but I am going to give this story a try. I have no idea if it is any good or not, but everyone keeps talking about it.  I am curious, what can I say. Hopefully it will turn out to be a good read and not a waste of time.

I will return will comments in a future post.

You might find it weird that I decided to post now about it, especially since I have no idea what it is with the fuss, but I figured that some of you might be fans and might be interested in finding out more about it and maybe even start reading it.

I am a huge fan of fan fiction in general that is why I plan on trying to read this story.

Have any of you read? Do you plan to read it?

Cover reveal: Ripped ( Real #5) by Katy Evans

RIPPEDcoverSUMMARY

Every woman wants me–except the one I sing for. 

Seattle shakes with anticipation: they call it the concert of the year. They say girls are getting pregnant just thinking about Crack Bikini being in town. 

But when you love a girl, you don’t leave her with nothing but a ring and a promise.

Any man with half a brain should know..

So what did I expect my girl would do when she saw me again?


Well, for starters, she loathes our music. Particularly the song I wrote about her.

When I sing it, the stadium is in an uproar. Thousands of fans scream my name likeI’m a god–but yeah, not her. Crystal clear: the girl’s not happy to see me.

Black hair, black boots, a bad attitude, that’s her — Pandora Stone is a freaking man-eater and she’s out for my blood.
That’s alright.

Let her come at me. Because I’m out for her heart and, this time, there’s no way she can stop me.

I read the first three novels a long time ago. I haven’t reviewed them on this blog so far. I started thinking about doing so yesterday and today while I was reading an article I stumbled upon a name I did not recognize. To my immense surprises that name happened to be Jeremy Irvine who will play the main character in this book based movie.

I knew that they planned a movie, but the last time I checked was about two years ago and I was sure that they gave up the idea. It seems that they finally have a cast. Hopefully soon we will have a trailer as well.

You should give the book a try. They are young adult.
