I loved the story at first. It seemed to flow well, was easy to read and fairly entertaining. My only qualm was that, at times, I'd forget whose point of view (Catie or Natalie) it was being written from because the writing was the same and their thoughts were rather the same. But then Catie's character started to annoy me, relying so heavily on her sister (even when she's injured) and everyone else she'd managed to tangle in her web of lies, and being so egotistical and whiny.
Overall, it was a fairly good read with some funny parts throughout, but I found it harder to read the closer to the end I got.
The Downfall of Catie Bloom - Intense. Funny. A well written story. I read the Misadventures of Catie Bloom and loved it. I didn't read the second book The Adventures of Natalie Bloom, but it wasn't that necessary to enjoy Downfall. While not as hilarious as Mis, because of the serious issues, Df is a better, more substantial story. The characters are believable and the plot just rolls along a twisting path. I enjoyed the book so much I read it in one sitting. It also reminded me of two classic movies with Barbara Stanwyck and Ginger Rogers as "Catie", except they had babies added to the mix.
Ignite - A short story about Catie, Natalie, Beth and Sam. How Catie started down her road of misadventures. The beginning of Catie and Sam's relationship starts here. It's funny and interesting; takes minutes to read.
I couldn't really connect with Catie. Her whole career was built on lies and so many people who help her will be hurt if the truth comes out. It's an entertaining read but I was growing tired of the conflicts by the time the book finally wrapped up. That said, since I already have the sequel in my Kindle, I will go ahead and read it.
Lots of tall tales and half truths manage to keep her life interesting and bumpy. A cute read. I received an advance copy and voluntarily chose to review.
