Reviews for Kiss Me Kill Me
Kiss Me, Kill Me by Lauren Henderson
Also reviewed on my blog, the Vintage Bookworm. (www.vintagebookworm.blogspot.com)
I feel horrible for saying this, but Kiss Me, Kill Me didn't live up to the expectations I had before I read it. I have been wanting to read this for a while, but never really got around to it until now. I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on it, most of them being good. I'm not saying I didn't like it, because I did like it. But I didn't love it.
It seems like the story went on, but like nothing much really happened. I liked the story enough to keep reading it, but I often found myself reading a whole page and not being able to remember what I read. I was so easily distracted while reading it. I was never able to be so into the book that I was sucked in and felt like I was really there.
I liked the suspense. I guess by the cover I suspected this to be a fluffy book, just a piece of chick lit. But it wasn't! I was so surprised by what happened at the beginning of the book with Dan, even though I kind of knew something would happen to him by the cover, but was never sure when it would happen and how.
Death by food allergy, wow. Lame! What a way to die!
I liked that the setting is in London, it was different and I absolutely love England. It's one of the places I dream of visiting one day.
Scarlett really annoyed me at times. She was always blaming herself, which wasn't really her fault. I can understand blaming yourself, but she just did it in an annoying way. One minute she would be blaming herself, but then daydreaming about the hot gardener, Jason, the next.
Some stuff added into the story was pointless. I'm not sure why it was added in, it wasn't something that was crucial to the storyline or anything.
Overall, I liked this book enough to continue reading the series, but not enough to call it one of my favorites. Hopefully the next book will be a lot better and hold a lot more mystery within its pages than the first book did. by Amanda
