(PDF FREE) [The Replacement] Author Brenna Yovanoff

Art ALSO Brenna I am sorry but I had NO CLUE what bands you were talking about besides maybe Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson who I don t listen to and have zero interest in What the heck was this about anyways And then after thatit s never mentioned in the book again If you have any idea what was going n during this part where Mackie was playing his bass guitar along with the ther demon people PLEASE let me know because I am totally LOST I will end by just saying that this book wasn t for me That doesn t mean it isn t for anyone but I personally disliked it to no end The writing was stale and stilted the characters were completely unlikable the dialogue was fake and cheesy and the premise while intriguing was never able to reach its full potential I did finish this book trying to give it a chance but in the end there really was nothing about this book that I likedLea LC s Adventures in Libraryland 2016 edit I m demoting The Replacement to 2 stars Why Well I read this book five years ago and I honestly cannot remember anything about it Other than it took place under a slag heap What s a slag heap I forgot I seem to recall thinking that ne some Unbound or allf the characters were morons So The Replacement definitely didn t leave a lingering impression An Extreme Modification (Milked by Royalty, on me and certainly didn t callut to me during the last five years for a re read Cover art is still lovely though Feminized Sissy Justice, A Forced Feminization Sissy Story original reviewI absolutely adored theriginality f The Replacement I think the fact that this is the author s first published book is phenomenal The story s major strength was in its imagery and attention to detail The eerie town f Gentry and the House The Lennon Prophecy of Mayhem under the slag heap were so detailed so vividly imaginative that it turned Replacement from a fun book to an edgef the seat thrill rideThe characters were also fleshed Japonia w sześciu smakach out very well and very creepily I might add The Morrigan and the creaturesf her court were so hideously delightful unlike anything I ve read before I liked how they were portrayed too They weren t evil and yet they were so creepy and so Aqidah Islam ominous that you couldn t help but feel apprehensive Side note Don t you just love it when books make you FEEL Though the story deals with changelings I liked how The Replacement seemed to have itswn Tank! original tailor made folklore Nevernce did the word faerie get attached to any Geek Feminist Revolution of the characters therefore I felt like I was reading a brand spanking new taken an Lucky Luciano old concept I m almost positive you haven t read anything like this beforeAs to the MC himself Mackie Doyle isne f the most endearing likable and heroic guys I ve seen in YA fiction in a loooooooong time You could not find a better guy to root for in a story like this His voice is perfect Months after reading The Replacement I think that the book s actual story definitely held up to its awesome breathtaking cover Cover design lures you in story keeps you satisfied PeriodAll these things being saidI did have some issues with the pacing f the story Seemed like an emphasis n the high some issues with the pacing f the story Seemed like an emphasis n the high drama subplots and not really enough f a focus Euripides Fabulae: Vol. II: (Sup., El., Her., Tro., Iph.Tau., Ion): 2 on the creatures until halfway in Replacement s thrillersuspense tone wasffset by of a focus Jean-Paul Sartre on the creatures until halfway in Replacement s thrillersuspense tone wasffset by school popularity issues and two chapter long parties which included underage drinking f course y all know that I find that really annoying It may sound like nitpicking but in a fantasy story with horror vertones those things were distracting and threw the pacing ff And personally I could have done without the Alice character I didn t really see any purpose to her inclusion in the story although I just loved it when Tate beat her up P As to content be aware that there is strong language throughout this book as well as some moderate level sexual content again just FYI for the viewer s discretionBut did I enjoy this book Definitely Would I recommend it I d say it s ne that would be worth your time yes The Replacement was a fascinating thoroughly How Ireland Really Went Bust. by Matt Cooper original story that I absolutely devoured To my knowledge it s a standalone novel and in an age where most authors are birthingut random seuels after the fact a good Super Gran Abroad (Super Gran, ol single installment story is worth its weight Check thisut D I ve always been intrigued by changeling storiesbut this Bambi and Me one is pretty disappointing as it has unmemorable characters and a fairly predictable runf the mill plot I loved this eerie and beautiful story f ugly things It should be read aloud after dark at a whisper I can without a doubt say I have never read a book uite like The Replacement before I m convinced Tim Burton Needs To Purchase The Rights To Make This Into needs to purchase the rights to make this into movie I m sure we can find a role for Johnny Depp If I had to come up with ne word for this book it would be disjointed I felt disjointed from the characters disjointed from the plot and the characters and plot felt disjointed from each Bala Santa other I just didn t understand it It book was NOT for me Probablyne Book of Magickal and Occult Rites and Ceremonies of my least favorite booksf all time I don t want to be mean This isn t to say no Bald Eagle (Zeuss Pack one will like it Heck the author is published so she s better than me in that way But I just could not stand this book So much profanity so much vague ness so many things left unansweredsigh Sorry worldFULL REVIEW postedn wwwSueakyBookscom 7 27 10I have never given a book zero stars The Lady Elizabeth (Elizabeth I, on my blog before I don t usually like to review books that I have such strong negative feelings for But there has been a lotf hype for this book around the blogosphere and I just wouldn t feel right if I didn t give you guys my two cents I m going to try to be nice I have nothing against the author She s published which is a lot than I can sayIn regards N Wolfsong our worldr theirsUnsettling villains and intriguing moral ambivalence make this effort shockingly riginal and breathtaking Booklist starred reviewEven after finishing the book readers will be left with the eerie sensation that the So to put it simply I was not a fan f this book Like at all Actually I kind Pelnrušķis un trollis of hated it I m really not sure what I was expecting it to be but I definitely wasn t thinking it would be a lame high school drama mixed with painfully dull characters and even painfully boring and lackluster writing I guess the cover is what attracted me to read this book in the first place but honestly great packaging and poor content does not eual a good bookFirst there were the thoroughly unlikable characters Tate was an angry stalker fullf contempt towards Mackie Roswell was a total perv who treated women like pieces Far Strike (The Transcended Book 3) of meat Mackie s parents were typical and stereotyped and completely unwilling to do anything useful and everyone else was easily forgettable I didn t like these characters therefore I didn t care what happened to themThen there was Mackie Doyle the tortured soul main character Usually I love reading from a guy s pointf view Ship Breaker Leviathan amazing but I could not connect with him at all All Mackie seemed to do was a be pale and emo b get nauseous O Mistério do Infante Santo or faint every time he was around metalr blood Disgrace (Department Q, or loud noisesr strong smells Monsoon or slight air currents c lust after Alice the slutty hot girl in schoolr d talk about how incredibly fake everyone is in town It got Slice by Slice old very uickly I have a difficult time sympathizing with a character who does nothing but whine and complain all the time even if it s for a legitimate reason In the end Mackie was just a male versionf Bella Swan empty dull bland vapid and I couldn t bring myself to care about what happened to him either Speaking Angels Flight (Legion of Angels Book 8) of tortured the writing was just awful It was serious work just trying to slog through each chapter To give you some ideaf what I m talking about imagine reading something like this for 340 pages and you ll get the picture very uicklyI yanked Ice Maiden off my T shirt and pulled the shades down Then I lay down with my face to the wall and pulled the coversver my head I woke up with a jolt It was dark My phone was buzzing Latin Lovers Greek Husbands Bundle on my bedside table and I rolledver I wanted to go to sleep The phone just kept buzzingSoooo have you fallen asleep yet I don t know but for me this kind Seducing the Heiress of writing is incredibly bland and formulaic I woke up and did a It was b and c Then I did d I felt e Then blah blahblah I just can t stay focusedn writing like this It s almost as exciting as watching paint dry And thenhow about character dialogues like thisCome And Cowboy Makes Three on you don t want to miss this Tis the season for girls to dress like hookers We ll catch up with the twins get a little socially lubricated I have this feeling that Alice is particularly looking forward to your company Are you kidding me Firstff Brenna nobody talks like this In my 4 years Teasing Her SEAL of high school and 6 yearsf college I ve not Rancher Bears Baby (Rancher Bears, once heard anyone use the term socially lubricated Secondf all no A Valentines Wish one is going to like characters who either are hookersr who label girls as being hookers Paixão Sem Disfarce orbsess Rain over girls because they dress like hookers Maybe people do this but that doesn t make me want to read about them and it sure doesn t lead me to care about what happens to them Further I would not recommend a book that makes womenut to be hoes r

TREATS SEX SO CASUALLY I M 
sex so casually I m being unrealistic r a prude I just find it to be completely or a prude I just find it to be completely when it has nothing to do with the plot I Met Someone or the characterization If you have an awesome story and brilliant writing you don t need to waste your timer the reader s with cheap add ins about getting trashed and banging the popular girls at school Another aspect Quantum (Captain Chase of the writing that drove me crazy were allf the contradicting statements I m guessing they were intentional but I didn t understand the point The Other Islam of them except to make me really confusedShe looked strange and fantastical and startling and normal How do you look strange and normal at the same timewhen I glanced in the mirror again I recognized myself and I didn tSo did your didn t youAs soon as I reached the bottom Last Man Standing of the ravine I felt desperately relieved And much much worse Umm relief means alleviation and the removalf pain so how would you feel worse if you were relievedFinally I hate Light, Gesture, and Color obvious plot holes even littlenes I consider myself to be a halfway intelligent person and I don t appreciate books that try to breeze Classic Krakauer: Mark Foo's Last Ride, After the Fall, and Other Essays from the Vault over contradictions like I m too stupid to notice So if I m reading along and something clearly makes no logical sense basedn what the author has already laid ut it drives me right up the wall For exampleMackie is supposed to act like a normal kid and not get noticed Yet some days he has completely black eyes don t you think that someone would maybe just maybe notice something that freakyMackie is hypersensitive to loud noises like doors that close too fast and yet he can go to heavy metal rock concerts with mosh pits and be just fine WHATSo Mackie can drink beer ut Canada of a can huh I thought he was deathly allergic to metal in any formEvery seven years the town givesne f their children to the underworld demon creatures and they in turn make the town prosper So I was picturing something like ut Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, of the Stepford Wives beautiful mansions manicured lawns everything perfect to cover up something ugly But notnce is the town described as perfect DogFace or prospering in fact it s run down and poor So I don t get it what was the pointf sacrificing a kid every seven yearsAnd What You Owe Me on a completely different note WHAT was UP with the rock concerts The Morigan and her crew had to putn heavy metal rock concerts to appease the people Buffalo Woman Comes Singing of Gentry so that they would still sacrifice their babies HUHI am so confused about that Mackie Doyle is The Replacement left in the cribf a human baby sixteen years ago He has been raised among us But he is not ne f us Now he must face the dark creatures f the slag heaps from which he came and find his rightful place O the book The premise was so interesting A faerie trying to live in ur world with all the downsides Shining City of being a faerie It s cool rightI also really liked Mackie s sister Emma She was thenly person actually willing to do something about the chaos that was Gentry and Mackie s life His parents I was glad that they kept Mackie and didn t treat him like a freak but they still bothered me For reasons to be explainedThe entire book was extremely vague No Blind Spots one in the townf Gentry ever talks about ANYTHING They all know that there are strange things going A Boy and A Bear in a Boat on but none does anything about it Even Mackie s best friend never uestions his weird behavior I recognize that there was probably a deep meaning behind this But I just couldn t find it I just found it extremely annoying and it made the characters seem very two dimensional So many uestions were left unanswered that just made me so frustratedAlso the profanity This book is described as Edward Scissorhands meets The Catcher in the Rye This probably should have tipped me SOS off since I couldn t stand TCitR This book had so much profanity and underage drinking and immorality sigh I just don t want to read books that gritty I can handle some grit but not to that levelAnyway Lotsf people love this book including plenty St. Johns Wort of people whosepinions I really respect But just be aware when you pick it up that it is very edgyI hope I wasn t mean I didn t want to attack the author The Roman Family or book in any way Every book has its place even if it s notn my shelf I love weird and I love horror vibes with romance thrown in So this was all Hirvenmetsästäjä of my cupsf tea Peppermint included The whole idea Hollywood Walk of Fame: 2000 Sensational Stars, Star Makers and Legends of a weirdly sic R is for Replacement The Ankay book with interesting ideas by a skilled author but A Christmas Miscellany overall an uninvolving experienceE 1 is for Entropy This book is fullf it the protagonist and the town he lives in and the supernatural creatures he is dealing with all battle against itP is for Prejudice I liked this novel s engagement with prejudice and how it literalizes Too Bad to Die othering Always an important topic especially so with young adult novelsL is for Limp This is a good description for the final confrontation uite disappointingA is for Atmosphere The author knows how to create a strange andften bleak atmosphere when it comes to slag heaps and when it comes to dark gothic underground lairs Unfortunately skills at creating atmosphere aren t much there in bringing the town where these places are set to lifeC is for Creepy The author also knows how to create creepy images and even creepier supporting characters KudosE 2 is for Energy Or in this case a striking lack OXENBOXEN of energy It s hard to put in words but there is anddly lifeless uality to the narrative and characterization This was the Resist (Wicked Ways Book 1) oppositef an exciting reading experienceM is for Music A key part Beautiful Ghosts (Inspector Shan, of the book and the most interesting thing happening in the story Music enthralls those responsible for that music liveff f that enthrallment Temporary as that spellbinding may beE 3 is for Escape I m not sure why the bvious solution to living in a town where faerie regularly kidnap children was not forcefully examined get the hell Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, outf there It was mentioned but dropped pretty uickly That buggedN is for Nice Try I like what the author WAS TRYING TO GO FOR HERE KITCHEN SINK REALISM trying to go for here kitchen sink realism to dark tales f changelings and faerie
UNFORTUNATELY THE RESULT WAS HALF BAKED 
the result was half baked the supernatural elements and the realism f what makes this town a special place were unconvincingT is for Time To End This So Called Review While reading this I felt like I was in a dark funk and that s because Mackie Doyle has been in this kind Reasoning and the Logic of Things of funk for almost his whole life He has never felt like he belongs because he s just a replacement A replacement that has to keep that a secret at all cost but that can t last for long can it His secret is jeoparized when Tate s little sister is thought to be dead but Tate doesn t believe that and presses Mackie to give her some answers How can he do that though when he doesn t even know what he really is himselfThe relationships that Mackie has are the strongest partf the book My favorite The Holcroft Covenant / The Rhinemann Exchange one being Mackie s relationship with his sister Emma but his friends also were top notch What also was done well was the feelf the The Night Before Christmas: or, A Visit from St. Nicholas: The Heirloom Edition oppressive cloud that Gentry hasver it s head You can tell the secrets are being buried but no matter how hard the people try the secrets bubble up to the surface again Now I wasn t feeling the chemistry between Mackie and Tate at first I kept wondering why Mackie even liked her but as the story progresses the romance between them does get better Then there is this scene where the ugly things undergound play a concert and I m assuming you were suppose to feel the music and just how great it was I guess I m not that intuitive because I tried but I couldn t get it All I kept thinking was Ok so they play really good and Those are little irks though because I could understand Mackie He tries so hard to be normal and aches to be like everyone else but he knows deep down he won t be able to do that Along the way he comes to learn that people do actually love him despite and because The Queens Assassin (Queens Secret, of what he isThe cover is very fitting to the book and I think it s interesting how the author putld superstitions into pratical ways it would hurt a person like Mackie I m not sure but it looks like there might be a series Either way the story can stand Space Calculated in Seconds on it swn Just so people will know there is teen drinking and some profanity Get lost in the world Lightning of ugly things but comingut you might realize maybe just maybe they aren t as ugly as they seem. Rue darkness has yet to abate BCCB starred reviewWell developed characters a fascinating Fairy Court an exciting story line wicked cover art this book has the makings f a success Publishers WeeklyA fast paced dark delicacy Kirkus Review. ,
