Description

Romeo and Juliet had it easy. Prior to the Halloween dance, Sophie figures her worst problems involve adolescent theatrics, bitchy teen yoga girls, and being on probation at her boarding school for mouthy behaviour. Then she meets bad boy Kai and gets the kiss that rocks her world. Literally. This breath stealing lip lock reawakens Sophie's true identity: Persephone, Goddess of Spring. She's key to saving humanity in the war between the Underworld and Olympus, target numero uno of Hades and Zeus, and totally screwed. All she's gotta do is master her powers, save the world... ...and stop kissing Kai, Prince of the Underworld. My Ex From Hell is a YA romantic comedy, Greek mythology smackdown, perfect for everyone who loves sassy girls that kick butt and the bad boys who infuriate them.show more

With a fun take on Greek Mythology and a winsome heroine leading the way, My Ex From Hell is a story that is sure to please Young Adult Fantasy lovers. As someone who'd read the author's first book, Sam Cruz's Infallible Guide to Getting Girls, I knew Tellulah Darling could tell a fun story. But with it being realistic fiction and this being fantasy, I did wonder if I would like My Ex From Hell as well. But with the story's interesting spin on Greek Mythology and cast of fun characters, I did enjoy the story. Like a lot of readers, I enjoy a book set at a boarding school. Close quarters leads to a lot of drama typically, but when you add the fact that a lot of the characters are gods and godessess, well, that makes for some extra drama, danger, and excitement. Sophie Bloom (great name!) was a great Young Adult heroine. She is a girl who'd always managed to fit in at her school, though she's not the most popular. She has great friends, Hannah and Theo, and despite an unloving mother, she is a happy girl. Her sense of humor is what really won me over. And that held true even as Sophie's world began to change in unimaginable ways. Learning that you are Persephone will throw you for a loop, or two. The girl managed to answer every insane situation with a bit of lively self-deprecation and snark. Of course, there's a guy, or god, it would seem. And this one is a doozy. Kai is possibly the love of Sophie's past life. He's gorgeous, powerful, sometimes charming, and she often can't even stand him. It doesn't help matters that Kai is the son of Hades, who as you know, has a complicated history with Persephone. In this version of the myth, it's his son, Kai, who has the relationship with Persephone, but still, he can't be trusted. My Ex From Hell was pure fun. The story was clever, exciting and fast-paced. The characters were hilarious and endearing. The ending was full of action and surprise, and definitely left me ready for the next story in the series. This is a great story for teens that is sure to win their imagination. There are so many re-imaginings of Greek Myths out there, but this one should not be overlooked.show more

Who should not read this? Anyone looking for in depth characters, deep storylines, serious plots, tighty constructed stories. You won't find it here. But if you want some fun, you've come to the right book! Who should read this? Anyone looking for fluff, snark, and a whole lot of fun. From the very beginning, Sophie is hilarious. She is witty, snarky, and doesn't sit around doing nothing. Not her, she goes after the mean girl locking her in a bathroom and stealing her hookup. Only the plan backfires on her and her world changes forever when it happens. I love, love, love when the Greek Gods like to stick their noses in the human world and try to destroy it. Sophie is Earth's only hope for salvation. Too bad she hasn't got a clue. This novel isn't really anything new when it comes to the Greek Gods mixing their fingers in human affairs. There is a boarding school involved with portals to the world of the Gods. The school is warded heavily so no one with the intention of harming Sophie can enter. Creatures we've seen before, teachers turning into dangerous monsters. All things borrowing maybe a little too heavily from Rick Riordan but not so much that it hurts the story. The romance is heavy and what really sets it apart is the snarky wit and dialogue. As I read this book, and it is laugh out loud funny, I knew there were some plot problems, but it is so much fun you can't help loving it. Sophie has a less than stellar adoptive mother who is a socialite that sent her to Hope Park Prep school from first grade. Hannah is her best friend from first grade, Theo from second grade and they know each other inside and out. So when Sophie suddenly discovers she's the human reincarnation of Persephone things get really weird. She doesn't remember her ex boyfriend or most of her life as Persephone. Sophie goes from one dangerous situation to an awkward one to another dangerous one and so on throughout the book, kind of making it up as she goes on. The greatest thing is that every character, Sophie, Theo, Hannah, and Kai are all snarky and the quips just keep on going. Good thing you don't have to keep count. They keep the story moving forward and the action is quick, the story never lags with the brilliant conversation. I got bogged down just a little with the Persephone story line, whether Sophie is a goddess and immortal or not, what powers she has and what it means for her and Kai. But I didn't let it trouble me too much. I'll definitely be reading the next in the series. This is a great Spring Break or Summer read! So for a fun time read My Ex From Hell by Tellulah Darling!!show more
