Forbidden Game- L. J. Smith

To lose the game is to lose your life in bestselling author L.J. Smith's THE FORBIDDEN GAME.

I bought this book after I finished reading her series "Vampire Diaries". I had loved her writting style and wanted to read more of her work. I found this the next time I went book shopping. I started reading it when I got home put it aside and got distracted, a week later I picked it up again and started reading it again only to put it down, and then a month later.. it's now been nearly a year and I have yet to finish this book. I could blame it on school work, my job, friends, not enough time in the day but truthfully it would be a lie, the reason I'm still reading this is becasue truthfully this book is just not able to get my full atention and keep it.

When I think about it, yes I do like this book, yes I should read it... but I have to do this this and this before I can... this happens everytime. I like it when I pick up and book and just forget about all the other things I have to do. The charactors where one of the best parts of this book, they felt real and I enjoyed the emotions they showed. The plot was also very good, geerally it keep moving forward but there were many dull moments between parts where I was bored.

And so with all this being said I rate this book from 1, I couldn't finish it to 10, unputdownable, a 3.

  1. I really enjoyed this book, but I don't really like the fact that it is a bind-up. I always feel like I have to read all the books included in the bind-ip before reading another book. So unless I have a lot of time, I don't reallly read those during the school year. But I read this one last summer, and really enjoyed it.
