Book: The Other Countess

This book was one of the only good things I could find at one of the  Chicago libraries. Any one that ever said they had a great pick of YA books has never been to this library. I have always gone to a library were YA are easy to find. And if you want one all you have to do is ask. But this library is awful. And the other day for like the first time ever at a Chicago library when I ask for a book someone was helpful! They did their job.
But here I am, blogging about the library and not the book. Sorry
 This book  looked good and bad by the cover. I always like reading historical books what have come out in the last ten years. Because they are always really good or really bad ( Lux  and Bright young things, case and point).and when the book says on the back can forbidden love ever flourish you know that is book is going to be on you are going to write a long review about.  I have to say that I like how it goes from lots of peoples point of views but I find that the way it changes is a little odd and some times ruff, and hard to follow. And I found that the people in the books are just like everyone else you read about in other YA historical books.I feel that the book was trying to hard to be a romance novel for teens a little bitt. and yes it was that , and it was sometimes good. it felt weird and and off in may places. and the covers are pretty bad I have to say. this book was over all good but needs a lot of work.  I would like to read the next book in the series in hopes that it can fix all the wrongs in this book. I know life does not always have a happy ending but when I read fluff books like this I want them to be good and to be fun to read. not like this.

( YA - 15 and up)
