Yes, for a 44 year old man I read novels intended for teen/young adult girls. The simple truth is, These authors for T/YA books are, IMHO, miles beyond the so-called "mature" authors when it comes to inventiveness, maturity, writing style, imagination and just plain creativity than most writing for an audience twice the age.
As far as C.I.N. goes, I was captivated from the very first chapter and riveted throughout. Every time I thought I had the "secret" figured out, the author tricked me and revealed yet another secret!
This was no "teen girl meets boy, they fall in love, adversity keeps them apart, boy becomes hero, they get together in the end" style of book we see so often in this market. It was twisted (in a good way), dark, complex, gave you just enough to keep you interested but hid enough to keep you from getting bored. There was romance, but DEFINITELY not your typical romance (to say the east.
If you (or your teen) enjoyed ANY of the Twilight, Harry Potter or Percy Jackson books - well written with lots of action - then you will love these books.
But there were a lot of awkward moments- there were several parts during the book that I was left wondering, what was going on. At one point she mentions moving into the dorms at a new school and her new roommate. The next chapter, she moves there and then lives with some stranger not in the dorms. It was weird until it was explained school had not started yet. There were other instances like it that just confused me. This was probably due to the some very abrupt points. Something happen= end a chapter and a bit of a cliffhanger to keep reading... fine works, and then start up again, but cliffhanger not explained and at a new weird entry back into the story. The flow felt off
It was an okay book for me and a good start for the writer. Will I read the next? Probably not as my list of books on my kindle is over 100 already, but it was an enjoyable read as it was.
I just finished reading the first installment of Christina Leigh Pritchard's "C I N" series: Book 1 - "Lynn, Lynn, City of Sin. You Never Come Out the Way You Went In." And, I'll tell you something interesting--after stepping into Pritchard's fiction, I didn't want to leave, and I definitely came out different than I went in.
Pritchard's work is a YA paranormal yarn, which typically isn't found in my book bag. But I decided to give it a read nonetheless, to broaden my literary horizons--and I'm so very glad I did.
This book may be YA, but it is for an ageless audience. The story is very compelling and intriguing, filled with characters--both human and animal--which touch your heart, slap you in the face, and raise your eyebrows.
Full of surprises, the novel progresses at an addictively readable pace. I found myself going farther in the book than I had intended to go during each reading session. I just needed to find out more and more.
It isn't until nearly halfway through the work that Pritchard starts to reveal some of the characters', and town's, secrets. The build-up is riveting, and the revelations are shocking, sometimes disturbing, sometimes pacifying.
The conclusion of Book 1 itself is not a conclusion, but rather an introduction. At the end of her work, Pritchard has her lead, Lisa Brown, asking herself many questions, which tease and taunt the reader with things to expect in the forthcoming books in the series. As soon as I read the last page, I found myself hitting one of Pritchard's websites, [...], so that I could find more "C I N" to feed my new addiction.
"C I N: Lynn, Lynn, City of Sin. You Never Come Out the Way You Went In" really impressed me and kept me turning its pages. The paranormal characters are of a new breed that is absolutely electrifying, so to speak. You'll definitely want to read this one--and the ones to follow.
loved it, but just a couple of parts I would have changed but AWESOME none the less :D
