Le Sigh. It seems the joy I experianced reading the book before this one, was short lived. Awakened sends you right back into the utterly juvenile, barely readable drivel of the Cast Duo. Oh, you heard me...I said drivel.
- Dude, I know she's your BFF. It is unnecessary and really efin annoying that you refer to her as such when ever she is referenced in the book. And I don't mean "I glanced at my best friend" which could be tolerable...I mean "I glanced at me BFF" oh yes...each and every time thats how it's written (Note: neither Stevie Rae or Zoey are listed here because they both do it.)
- The use of the word "niggling" on page 152. WHAT THE HELL?! Did one of them get word of the day toilet paper and think, "Hey that would go in my book great". You want teenagers to read this crap then you use a word that they don't know and won't look up and will most likely think is somewhat racist considering all the "down south, you-got-a-purdy-mouth" BS you toss out there. And it's not even used by Damien the "wordsmith" of the series, so we don't actually get a definition....HEY LADIES: PICK A TARGET AUDIENCE AND STICK WITH IT! For reference on the word Niggling
nigglingpresent participle of nig·gle (Verb)1. Cause slight but persistent annoyance, discomfort, or anxiety: "a nasty leg wound which still niggled at him"; "a suspicion niggled at the back of her mind".2. Find fault with (someone) in a petty way
- Can someone please explain to me how you "Twitch" into a room. Forget the meaning of life, this is a phrase I have never heard before these books and can not for the life of me sort out what it means or how you do it. Though I imagine I can create some rather humours times with my friends and a bottle of wine trying to recreate what the book is trying to tell me it means....If any of you can video yourself twitching into a room, let me see it. I would love to see this confident walk played out before me once and for all.
