I'm a bookworm of the highest caliber! If you see me, I'll probably be reading. There's nothing I love more than finding a good book, and then sharing it with the world!

Kitty and the Midnight Hour - Carrie Vaughn

I give up on this. No one can tell me I didn't try. I made it to 60%!

 

There are a lot of things wrong with this book, not the least of which is the "pack" mentality that Kitty has to deal with. I don't care if you are a werewolf that's in a pack. It is NOT okay for your alpha to treat you like shit. The relationship between Kitty and Carl is so blatantly abusive, that I can't even focus on the rest of the story. Worse yet, because he's alpha he gets to force Kitty into sleeping with him whenever he wants? NO. Pardon my language, but FUCK NO. That's not okay. I don't care if he is an alpha, and Kitty is a submissive, that's never okay.

 

And Kitty just tolerates it all, which makes me hate her.

 

I see that the goal is to have her come out of her shell and go against him at some point. I sense that's the point of this whole thing. That doesn't make it okay, or something I want to read.

 

Moving on.
