Altered Series by Jennifer Rush

Altered (Altered, #1)Altered by Jennifer Rush
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is fast-paced, action-packed, and has a unique concept. I think this one would really appeal to reluctant readers.

While I enjoyed the story, something about it is not particularly memorable, nor would I read it again. That is why this gets 4 stars from me. I really enjoyed it, but I don’t absolutely love it, nor do I want to join the characters in their world. Instead, I was happy to watch them on their journey, but I just didn’t invest much of myself in it.

Erased (Altered, #2)Erased by Jennifer Rush
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I actually like most of this book better than I did book one. It was more exciting, even though I was upset for most of the book about some of the choices. There are a few things that seemed extreme and unnecessary with the ending, but overall, they were acceptable.

However….

SPOILERS. YOU WERE WARNED.

. . . when I started book two, I was very upset to find out almost immediately that she choose to be with the wrong boy.description

She should not be with the kind, protective, handsome, broody guy who insta-loves her for no apparent reason (other than maybe mind control). No, no, no!

She should be with the grumpy dude who bickers with her and yet always shows up with meds when her head hurts.

Reborn (Altered, #3)Reborn by Jennifer Rush
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I wanted to give this 2 stars, based on my internal feelings, but I have upped it to a 3 out of fairness, since some of my reasons for disliking it are purely emotional and have nothing to do with the actual writing or storyline–though I confess the storyline didn’t really pull me in.

Now for my actual review:

No, no, no. I’m not buying this. I love Nick, but this isn’t the girl he should be with. I was so uninterested in this that I almost couldn’t finish it. This new girl just appears out of nowhere, and I wasn’t having any of it.

We already know who Nick should be with, people. Let’s stop pretending that anything else will be acceptable. It just won’t.

I tried to give the E girl (Eliza? Emma? —I was so uninterested in her that I can’t even remember her name) a chance, but she just doesn’t hold a candle to A. She’s like the honorable mention ribbon you get in the 3rd grade science fair, because everyone just has to be a “winner.”

In my mind, he breaks up E girl and returns to the girl he should be with (after she finally pulls her head out of the sand and gets a freaking clue).

So I spent most of this story in denial, rewriting it in my mind the way I feel it should be. That obviously impaired my ability to enjoy this particular book. Sorry peeps. I love Nick, but I just couldn’t. I typically try to accept the results of most love triangles, but this one just continues to make no sense to me.
