It was just wrong. It was alright. But, I thought that Fate would be even better, ya know? All of a sudden, I was on my knees, my hand on my heart and my head bent. Why, you ask. Well, from disappointment, of course. I mean, when I started Fate I was fluttering with hope but Hocking broke my wings and let me fall and break my neck. It was that screwed up. At first, I thought that a love triangle that involved two brothers and a stranger was kind of hot. Not a lot of people can write this kind of stuff now, can they?
I really wanted to know what will happen since Peter was out of the picture. But, it was all so much in one book. And really the rest of the family was taking her side. Oh, btw. I mean, if he really loved his brother even if peter tried to kill alice he would back off.
So, Alice is just a selfish screwed up person who likes to break families apart. And well, because he left. Jack is kind of an ass. And what about the whole turning thing? Not cool. How would Peter feel? Did he think about that? Probably not because someone made him think that he hates Peter. Milo was just I don't feel much for him. Damn, that chick needs a therapist I do not like her. She seems pretty useless and molded from crap.
I don't like the way Alice treats them. When ever they do something that she doesn't like she bitchs about it. For all I know, they can kick her butt out of the house and their lives. But they're too nice for that. They're so nice sometimes it's sickening. My rating: I mean two stars? I hate to write a negative review about this book because I really love this author, but this is honestly one of the most boring books I have read in a really long time.
The main character, Alice, was very one-dimensional, and came across as very whiny.
I didn't like her character for the same reason I didn't like Bella in "Twilight" - too whiny and way too obsessive over her boyfriend. Just because your boyfriend doesn't see you for two days is no reason to completely lose who you are. I do not I hate to write a negative review about this book because I really love this author, but this is honestly one of the most boring books I have read in a really long time.
I do not like this trend that many YA novels seem to be following, in that your life sucks if you don't have a boyfriend. Girls this age need to be reading books on how it's OK to be single and how you can be strong and be your own woman. There is also extremely bad grammar which drove me crazy.
The worst were characters constantly saying "want to come with? I know that it would make since for some of the teenagers to say that since it is unfortunately popular but for the more educated characters with multiple degrees and who supposedly lived in a time where that would have been a major faux pas is completely ludicrous. For a writer to allow that is unexceptionable to me.
They are just enforcing the the belief that it is okay. View all 3 comments. This has been an unusual reading experience for me. I'm sticking with the series, I think because I want to see where the story goes and if the writing improves - and I'm a little masochistic. As it stands after My Blood Approves and Fate , the writing screams amateur, which isn't great for a published work that you pay for.
The number of grammatical errors is shameful, Hocking uses a paragraph to describe what easily one sentence could and her characters all speak the same way - like teenagers. T This has been an unusual reading experience for me. That's not good when very old, educated vampires say things like "Gonna" and "Wanna come with?
Honestly, I can't understand why Alice mopes around so much. She could start by getting a new best friend Jane is awful and her poor mother - goodness, she may not be Mother of the Year but there's far worse. It seems to me most of the teenagers in these books make life changing decisions - like becoming a vampire - based purely on their teenage hormones and nothing else. The constant references to brand names is frustrating.
I'm Australian and have no idea what a "Dickies" is and can't be bothered Googling it to be honest. Also, I think these types of references date a book. It's not like she's talking about Chanel. I admire how Amanda Hocking has made a name for herself via the self-publishing route but am disappointed in the lack of care she's taken so far in this series.
I'll continue reading got the rest of the series from the library but it's a bit of a chore at the moment. View all 4 comments. Once again, the grammatical errors can be distracting, as they were in the last book, but still some might enjoy this vampire tale. Alice is still flighty and insincere, and in this second book in the series, she becomes extremely annoying at times. Her lack of focus and initiative to get a handle on her life, her desires, and her future goals is slightly annoying.
Once again, I found Milo much more enjoyable than Alice as a solid character. Milo knows exactly what he wants in life, and even his Once again, the grammatical errors can be distracting, as they were in the last book, but still some might enjoy this vampire tale. Milo knows exactly what he wants in life, and even his life altering accident doesn't stop him from pursuing his 'life'. If you enjoyed the first book even a little, then you might enjoy this one as well.
Alice is still struggling with her duel relationships, and even though Peter has run off, she still thinks about him despite the fact that she claims to love Jack more. Jack, on the other hand, keep Alice at a distance claiming it is safer for her, and a new strain is put on their relationship after Milo's accident. Once again, if you liked the first book enough to continue reading, then you might enjoy this one as well. He basically betrayed his brother. Thirdly, the end? I like hocking but goddamn.
Frostfire and Konstantin and now this shit? Fuck off. Stop taking my money. Ahh it's so addicting. I'm adopting Alice's sleeping patterns thanks to this series. In the beginning when Alice was angry and upset, I was actually in a bad mood for her lol. I found myself snapping at my family for no reason other than I was upset for Alice. I was seriously sucked into this book.
It's almost 3am and I have to force myself to put my nook away now and not read Flutter yet. It's just so good! Okay I need to breathe and get some sleep. Lol I feel like an addict. Loved this book just as much now as I did the first time I read it 3 years ago!
Peter has always had a way of making me adore him! Dec 13, Sofi rated it it was ok Shelves: Oh man, this one was a hard book to finish. Everyone on this fucking book is a bloody moron, the romance, if you can even call it that, is fucking deplorable , and the plot has more holes than a fucking French cheese.
I'm just glad I went through this painful read for one reason only: I will never read more books by Amanda Hocking.
I loved the Trylle trilogy, Kanin or whatever was a huge disappointment, I tried her mermaid series, couldn't go past the first couple chapters. My Blood Approves, the Oh man, this one was a hard book to finish. My Blood Approves, the first book of this series had some potential, but Fate completely and utterly obliterated any hopes I had.
Like seriously, how can a character be so damn stupid? Alice is suicidal to say in the least, every time someone told her, 'hey, bitch, don't do this shit, you gonna end up dead. And the thing is, she was not the only dumb character, oh - no, Jack, the vampire acts also as if he's brain-dead. Mae and Ezra were annoying af, not to mention, totally unnecessary characters, they honestly didn't bring anything to the table. About Milo, the gay vampire brother, I pitted him throughout the whole book, his sister is an egotistical asshole, who doesn't give two flying fucks about him, even though she was always trying to convince herself and others that she did.
Peter, Alice's one true mate snort , sounded like the only truly interesting character worth reading about, until that is, he shows up only at the end of the book, only to do something stupid, like leave Alice, the sick bitch, alone with his brother, who is obviously in love with her and wants to keep her for himself. But of course, believing that someone on this book could act in an intelligent way, is believing pigs fly, really.
And thats all I gotta say about Fate, only good things, as you've seen. The only reason why I rated it with two stars and not one, is that it managed to keep me awake until almost 4am because the characters were frustrating the fuck out of me - and I also secretly wished they could just get over it and kill each other, now that would've been a riot.
Nov 13, Katrine Austin rated it really liked it. Thank goodness the heroine finally turns I don't think I'm spoiling anything given this news is all over the cover of the 3rd book in the series. Hocking wove an intriguing enough yarn about all these vamps, enough to make me vote yes for reading book 3 in the near future but not so urgently that I can't insert December's book club read before then.
Decent writer. A little more prudish than I usually appreciate for my protagonist, but hey I get that is part of her schtick for Alice.
It is summer, Milo and Alice are hanging out with Jack at his house. There is a lake with a dock in their backyard. Jack, Alice and Milo are out at night swimming in the lake. Mae tells Alice to go change out of her bathing suit because it is cold in the house they keep it cold because they are vampires.
While she is changing she hears someone sc It is summer, Milo and Alice are hanging out with Jack at his house. While she is changing she hears someone screaming. She runs downstairs and out into the backyard Mae stops her because she does not want Alice to see what has happened.
Milo was running on the dock to jump in the lake and he fell and hit his head. Milo is covered in blood and dying. Alice has to make the decision to turn him into a vampire or let him die. So she tells Jack to change him. Alice loves her brother very much. Her brother is the only reason that she has not already changed herself. Milo can never go home again to live. So they decide the best thing to do is tell their mom that he has received a scholarship to go to school some where else and that he will be leaving the next day.
The school wants him there a week early. When they take Milo for one last visit to see his mom, Ms. Alice is not allowed to hang out with Jack or Milo anymore because Milo may attack her. He is a new vampire and he is attracted to Jack. So Alice spends her time in bed reading and listening to music. Milo progress rapidly in his change of becoming a vampire. At first it is very hard for him being around Alice not to bite her.
It had been just Milo and his sister basically all their lives. While Jack and Ezra are away on a business trip Milo misses his sister so he decides that Alice needs to get out of the house. Jane calls and wants Alice to go out with her parting. So they all three go out together. They go to a gay club because that is what Milo wants.
While at this club they meet up with two vampires, Lucian and Violet who they had met one night when Jack, Milo and Alice went out to a vampire club. Jack fights with Lucian because he is taking Alice away. When they go to this gay club and meet them again Milo fights Lucian in the parking lot while Alice and Jane are trying to get in the car.
Violet is attacking both of them putting scratches down both their backs and ankles. Alice and Jack are afraid because they think that Peter is going to kill Alice because Jack bit Alice. Alice calls Jack to warn him and tell him to come home.
When Jack arrives he attacks Peter. Alice still wants Peter and Peter wants Alice because it is in their blood. But Jack is her boyfriend I think but that is not what they say. So who will Alice end up being with? Will she be the one to choose? This is great love story with a twist of vampire in the mix. She had no idea where her father was.
La trama es sobre Alice que quiere estar con Jack pero no puede porque pertenece a Peter. En el libro hay un "triangulo amoroso" pero no es real.
O sea los dos no la quieren solo les atrae la sangre como Edward con Bella vaya casualidad y quieren chuparle la sangre. Desde mi punto de vista no es un triangulo amoroso porque Peter ni aparece y solo la desea por su sangre.
Peter y Jack son super machistas. Hablemos de que esta escritora no tiene ni puta idea de los gays. Siempre remarca que es gay cuando hace todo os lo juro. Siempre tiene que recordarnos que es gay. I was really looking forward to book 2 in the My Blood Approves series as I loved the first one but for me book 2 was a bit of a disappointment. I'm in two minds about these covers as I think they could be stunning photographs but I think it's a bit misleading as it gives a creepy feeling to me but this book is by no means a creepy book.
It took a very long while to get into this book and actually it wasn't until the last few chapters when I really started to get into it. Even though there was a f I was really looking forward to book 2 in the My Blood Approves series as I loved the first one but for me book 2 was a bit of a disappointment. Even though there was a few things going on I found myself thinking that it wasn't written in a way to capture my interest. A lot of things that happened really annoyed me to the point I felt like throwing my kindle across the room.
I felt that the romance side of the story was pretty much non-existent even though there was something going on between the two main characters I didn't feel any chemistry. There was a couple of things that happened that I wasn't expecting and some of those really shocked me which I liked.
As I said the end of the book really got interesting to the point of me wanting and even excited for the next book. Some of the characters was better in this book than they where in the first book and then the others that didn't grow annoyed me. For me Alice was a lot more likeable in this book than she ever was in the first book. I really felt for Alice at times with the way that everyone was treating her and even though at times she was a bit whiney I could understand where she was coming from.
I wasn't a huge fan of Jack's in this book as he just kept shutting Alice out without any explanation but there was times when he was the Jack that I liked from the previous book.
Milo was in this book loads more than the first book but unfortunately he changed in more was than one as he really annoyed me quite often.
The rest of the characters from the first book wasn't really in it that much and apart from Peter the others kind of annoyed me. Overall, I was expecting a lot more from this book but for me it showed signs of suffering from second book syndrome.
I will continue this series if I can actually get books 4 onwards as it looks like its been discontinued from site UK but I hope I'm wrong. I can't believe I wasted my time reading this book. Honestly, this book is nothing but ideas stolen from Twilight and, I felt for some parts, The Host. There is no plot, nothing that progresses the story. Everything's a cliche. I hoped--expected, even--that the the story would improve, and that the stupid errors would disappear and the author's writing would be better and not contradictive, but unfortunately, no such luck.
If you ask me, I think Hocking wasted her time writing this book. Alice d I can't believe I wasted my time reading this book. Alice did nothing but piss me off further. She has no personality, always cries and is a worrier, much like Wanderer since My Blood Approves has nothing but Twilight cliches, i felt there was also parts of The Host involoved.
I don't get the part with Milo going to the gay club and dancing with "foxy" guys who cud be as old as his grandpa figuratively speaking. He's 15, for Heaven's sake.
Yeah, he's recently come terms with his sexuality, but seriously? I'm trying to read a book here--a book i thought was worth my time! And what the hell is the deal with Violet and Lucian? James and Victoria, much?
This book has discouraged me to read further, but unfortunately, i have a policy to continue reading a book or series once i start.
I don't recommend ANYONE to read this series, since the author's lack of creativity and writing style is disappointing and worthless. I mean it. No, i'll kill the author first then jump off a bridge. Ok, so I'm just going to start by saying that I have this problem. My problem is that when I start a series or trilogy or just a book with a sequel, I won't write my review until I'm like finished, because I just cannot stop reading for the like of me. I read all four of the my blood approves books in three days because I just didn't want to stop, so I've kind of been procrastinating with writing this review I mean there were like those Ok, so I'm just going to start by saying that I have this problem.
I mean there were like those stupid cliche vampire book parts, but if you can get past that then you would think this was really good. In the second book, Alice is still hanging out at the vampire house, and so is her brother, but he doesn't know they're vampires.
Peter is gone because he doesn't want to be around her, but her and Jack still aren't allowed to be together because of Peter but I'm just saying that in this book her and Jack fall more in love than in the first book Then Milo almost dies, and they turn him into a vampire, and it doesn't say, but you can tell that Alice is a little bit jealous.
I think that this book would have sucked if it wasn't for the characters. So overall, read it if you think you can get past the whole Cliche vampire crap, because the book isn't FULL of it, and it is easy to get past. We'll this is the second book in the My Blood Approves Series.
Alice is getting use to her new life, sort of. After Peter almost killing her and Jack almost telling her that he loves her - she is dealing. This is really rough for Alice because her body tells her she belongs with Peter but her heart belongs to Jack but they can't give in to each other. And the really sucky part is Peter doesn't want her but he can still kill them if the wants to and apparently he will want to because it is vampire nature.
I can't really go into much more of the books because that would give a lot away. The one thing I will say is that Alice feels like she is not very loved in this book, and with good reason in my opinion. Some of the reviews made it seem like the book was a big downer so I expected not to like it. Well, I was pleasantly surprised that I liked it as much as I did.
Again another great book in this series!!! Now I am off to go read Flutter, the next book in the series. I recently re-read this book when I was unable to sleep and needed something to help me get there.
Alice spends a good majority of this book moping around and being selfish. The little bit of likable she was from the first book evaporates in this book. At the beginning, she makes the decision to turn her brother Milo after he slips and breaks his neck, but then spends the rest of the book being mad about it or whining a I recently re-read this book when I was unable to sleep and needed something to help me get there.

It was really off putting. With his fondness for pink Chuck Taylors and New Wave hits aside, Jack's unlike anyone she's ever met. Then she meets his brother, Peter. His eyes pierce through her, and she can barely breathe when he's around. Even though he can't stand the sight of her, she's drawn to him. But falling for two very different guys isn't even the worst of her problems. Jack and Peter are vampires, and Alice finds herself caught between love and her own blood Alice Bonham thinks she's finally found a balance in her life between the supernatural and real life with her brother Milo.
Jack - her sorta vampire boyfriend - keeps her at arm's length to keep her safe. As for his brother Peter Worse still, she's not even sure what she wants with Peter. When tragedy happens, Alice finds herself struggling with a terrible choice. Her decision has consequences that reach farther than she'd ever imagined Her younger brother's love life is heating up, while hers is
