Description

""I don't want him to love me because of a potion," she said. " Izzie loves Mark, and why shouldn't she? As the captain of the basketball team, he is kind and loving and he's everything she's ever wanted in a boyfriend. Her BFF loves . . . somebody, but she won't say who. So when a hot new guy, Tristan, shows up at school, who better for Izzie to fix up her friend[LL1] with? And what better way to do it than with a love philtre? But even the best of magic has a way of going awry--and Izzie finds she's accidentally fallen in love with Tristan herself. And that's a problem. First of all, there's Mark. Second, Tristan comes with baggage--like the supernatural creatures that keep attacking whenever he's with Izzie, and the fact that he comes from the place where Izzie's father was killed, years ago, by an enormous, evil serpent that's still around--and it knows Izzie is out there. Like Mettie Ivie Harrison's "The Princess and the Hound," praised by Orson Scott Card as "powerful, surprising, moving, and deep--a classic," "Tris and Izzie" rings the changes on a timeless legend, this time in a contemporary high school setting.show more

As you can see from how i rated it, which is 1 star out of 5, i have not enjoyed this book. It felt childish for me, and unbelievable. The way how Tris and Izzie fell in love, EVEN though it was by a love potion, still didnt sound that convincing. It was too dramatic, and i felt like i was reading Romeo & Juliet. A book that was not from this century. Sometimes i would be reading, and i wouldnt even understand what happened. Like, she does something, and then suddenly she is somewhere else doing something else, and im just like, whaat? Also i felt like the writing was, i dont know how to describe it, but it was childish? I felt that the sentences were like they were written by a non professional. Now please, this is just MY personal opinion, but thats how it felt like for me. While i was reading, everything was expected. I actually knew everything that would happen. There was no action, or nothing that gave me adrenaline rush like some books do. There was nothing to keep you excited on finishing it and going on. Nothing to even get you hooked up. Overall, i didn't even want to finish it, because it was very unrealistic, and not unrealistic because there is magic or whatever, no, but unrealistic in how the events are happening and etc. I am disappointed, and i truly expected that it would be much better. Therefore i do not recommend this book if you have the same taste as me. But, go ahead and read it if you want :) Happy Readingshow more

Alright, first off I absolutely adore the cover of this novel! I think it's one of my favorites! It's so beautiful in a romantic, serene kind of way. It definitely gets an A+ in my eyes. It's everything I'd want a cover to be (for this story anyway). I was introduced to this novel a little while ago on other book blogs. It was being reviewed and author interviews were popping up everywhere. As soon as I took a look at the cover, I knew I wanted to read it. So to GoodReads I went. The summary for Tris & Izzie had me hooked as well. I desperately wanted to read this book. So after a little research, and finally delving into the world of NetGalley, it was once and for all in my hands (or on my computer screen, I should say...). When I opened it up, I quickly lost myself within the pages. I could not stop reading it. I was instantly hooked. I ended up sitting on the computer for hours doing nothing but reading Tris & Izzie. I finished it the same day and was a little sad when I was done. I wanted to keep reading. There was so much about this novel to love; interesting characters, romance, magic, and teenage angst. I have to admit though, the romance and magic is what got me and held my attention. When I read the first few chapters, I was instantly intrigued by the magic and how it was used and portrayed. It made the story desirable and even more interesting to the reader. The only thing I can think of that could have made the book better is if it had gone a little more slowly. I feel like the book itself, as well as the characters and the situations they were put in, were a little bit rushed. Everything happened a bit quickly. But hey, I don't know anything about other-wordly beasts and a magical whirlwind romance. I loved this novel.show more

This book was a remake of the legend "Tristan and Isolde", which is a very cute, classic love story. I felt like the story itself wasn't really that similar to the legend aside from the names and love triangle. I enjoyed the style of writting, and I felt like all of the characters were strong and well written. My only problem was with the main character. At 16, I was very responsible and I like to think of myself as being mature for my age because I was very involved in my community, and I hardly acted out. Izzie was the complete opposite. Her character complained a lot, was whiny, and was very immature. She didn't really act like a 16 year old, in my opinion. Also, everything was very abrupt. Relationships happened in a snap without any backing. Yes, I know a love potion is involved, but it was still strangely fast. But on the other hand, the story didn't drag on, which is a plus for me. I hate when I hate when books just drag on and on and on and on and on and on and.....you get the point. The scenes were abrupt, but it didn't drag on. Overall, it was an enjoyable read.show more
