“You existing in the world is all I need.”
Seeing the page, I think out of everyone I know and am following, I'm the first to actually review this.
Going into this I was kind of hoping this would break the whole "the last book wasn't what I expected and hoped for and felt meh". It doesn't break it completely. Had a moment that it could have but just fell flat to me. I'm rather conflicted, seeing that I was fiddling with my rating for a while and settled on that rating. I can't go higher because it didn't...exceed my expectations, I also can't lower it because I'd read worse endings to series than this. Not that it was worse or bad, because it came up as a "...huh?" for me. Mostly because it fell flat and made me almost go meh.
And I was seriously hoping I wouldn't have to be groaning and feeling so conflicted about this as I write this review, but ugh I have to sadly.
When I began reading this, I kind of had a different picture how this would end. Somehow I thnik I felt more robbed of the creepy dark ending I had imagine, especially from the blurb. Yes there were a few moments where I was like "okay, my heart is seriously breaking" but for most part I just shrugged and moved on. Maybe my heart has hardened a bit. Maybe I am being more critical or whatnot. But I do know I was expecting more, especially from how the first two book set it up.
Okay, seriously I have spoilers in this for a REASON.
READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.
There's several things why I felt rather robbed and conflicted about this book. I seriously expected more. I felt like I got a mediocre ending where
And the jokes, I felt they were trying REALLY hard to be funny more so this time than the other books. Sometimes it felt unnecessary. But other times, it did save me. I swear Kami's father's jokes were probably the best ones.
And the relationships, oh my goodness... I was kind of like cringing for a good part of the book as it just flickered back and forth, back and forth and was headdesking a fair bit. I was happy with some, but the main romance department just had me rolling my eyes. Just not what I expected.
BUT THE ONE THING THAT REALLY MADE ME GO NOOOOOOOOO WAS THIS:
All and all, for a 'final' battle type of book, it felt a bit lacklustre and totally different from what I was expecting...kind of like as I neared, I was getting my hopes up only to get this response instead:
Quite frankly, I'm a bit sad and slightly disappointed
