Delayed Book Review Time! Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick

I put off writing this review yesterday since I was almost done with a book that I rather review than Romeo and Juliet then I put it off all day. It is now 9:30 pm and I am just beginning. Hey, at least I’m doing it! Anyway let’s dive in head first into this review, but first, in order for me to give a through reasoning for my thoughts, I will have to forewarn you that there is going to be spoilers.

Okay so this morning (probably afternoon), I finished reading a book by my favorite author (unless Rebecca Stead writes another book). I absolutely love Becca Fitzpatrick! She’s become probably my favorite author since I’ve read all of her books and am anticipating her new book coming out in October. I got Black Ice for Christmas from a friend but then left it at another friend’s house and just got it back on Monday so I decided to read it right then and there. It took me all but a few days to read this and now ill dissect the pros and cons of this book!

Cons:

-Korbie is kind or pointless and honestly shouldn’t be a character. She is just the annoying best friend who got them in the hostage situation in the first place. I didn’t really care for her. She was irritating to say the least, and I don’t know why Britt stayed best friends with her all her life.  I’m happy she got left behind. Unfortunately she lived. But she and Britt aren’t friends anymore so that’s cool.

-Britt is also kind of annoying. I thought that she would go through a character growth thing like all characters do, but she didn’t grow the way I hoped she would. She got stronger, but she was too obsessive over her ex, and seemed terribly reliant on all the men in her life. Even when she wasn’t trying to be reliant on guys, she still seemed reliant.

-it was predictable at times, but there were also a lot of plot twists that I’m not sure I’m completely in love with.

Pros:

-Britt is smarter than she seems. Shes annoying and too girly for my liking but she prepared for the trip and managed to outsmart her kidnapers. I mean she is smart enough to keep things hidden and lie but she falls in love with her kidnapper. Cute but I don’t think it was a smart idea.

-Britt ends up happy and with new friends, with her true love, and never hears from Korbie again. YAY!

-It wasn’t always predictable and through me for a lot of loops. Over all I give it a 4 of 5.

Becca, keep writing books. I’m super excited for Dangerous Lies. Can October come any slower? Please don’t come any slower.  I enjoyed Black Ice and The Hush, Hush Saga. I can’t wait to write a review on her next book! Well, that’s all. It’s always fun talking to strangers! Share, follow, enjoy! Thanks for listening to me rant, I appreciate it.
