This was such a cool concept. Seriously. The concept was amazing. This "A" person thing being switches bodies. Everyday he she it ends in a new body. Ever morning it wakes up as someone new. There are so many places you could go with this. There really is. But, unfortunately, this was kind of a let down on the author's part. It felt like this wasn't explored as much as it could have been for sure.

There's a reason you should wait a few days before reviewing a book. You really need to take time to process things. When I first finished reading this I was at 5 stars! I loved it I really did, and don't get me wrong, I still really like it, but as of writing this review I'm more at a 3 now.

I started thinking about the questions I still had regarding this book and realized there were just too many left unanswered. For instance, what the hell is A??? Why does it only visit someone once? Why does it only inhabit people the same "age" as it? Does it even really have an age? Is it really 16? Is it an alien? Is it the devil?! There were just too many questions. I had more questions when I finished reading the book than when I started! There's just too much left to deal with!

As far as the romance of the story goes, you have your classic teenage insta-love. "A" inhabits the body of a pretty girl's boyfriend who is a classic asshole, and "A" thinks that she deserves better and that "A" can be that person and after taking her to the beach for like, 4 hours "A" is madly in love with her and no one else should have her. At least Riahnnon (BTW what the hell kind of name is that?) was a little weirded out by it at first, but like, a week later she's laying naked with "A" in some stranger's body in a cabin in the woods where no one will find them....uh...DANGER ALERT?! So, this...being i think I went with....comes up to you in all these different bodies and you think this is okay? No. Not okay.

As I said, so many places this could have went and I really feel that it just fell short. It was a good read though and I would love a sequel to clear up some of the questions left to be answered!


Armchair BEA Introduction!

So I have to say I have never even heard of this until a fellow blogger I follow posted their intro! Apparently it's not too late so I'm gonna join in!

This is my introduction :)

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well I'm Kaytee, I'm a 20 year old college student studying business and accounting while working full time as a secretary at my family's construction business. (I have my own office! It's awesome!!) I started blogging a long time ago, back in like Sophomore year of high school, but back then I was only blogging about Twilight because that's what I was obsessed with back then (plus I was still on Xanga!) I started blogging on Dedicated Readers Only about 3 or 4 years ago. I started on Xanga before moving to blogger! My first post on blogger was on January 13, 2010 when I reviewed Owen Meany and Pride and Prejudice which I was reading for high school! I actually got into blogging thanks to my best friend in high school who had started up a book blog. I thought, Hey! I love books too! Why didn't I ever think of this? I can talk about books all I want and no one will tell me to shut up! And that's how Dedicated Readers Only came to be!

What are you currently reading? What is your favorite book you have read so far in 2013?
Well I'm currently reading Miss Pergerine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I'm only on page 1 so I can't comment on this one yet. I did just finish Every Day by David Levithan which was pretty good.  I got hooked on The Walking Dead as well, which are incredible! Requiem by Lauren Oliver and With All My Soul by Rachel Vincent finished up 2 of my all-time favorite series so that was upsetting but happy at the same time!

If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why?
This is way too hard of a question! There are way too many I would love to do this with. I would have to say one of my choices, which may seem strange, but totally true, is Charlie Swan for Twilight. *GASP* "She chose a character from one of the most loved but mostly hated book series of this generation?!?!" Yes, yes I did. Charlie is one of my favorite characters from books I've read. He's funny, sweet, a protective father, cool with his daughter being a vampire, and he is a cop. With lots of guns. I think dinner with him would be amazing!

What literary location would you most like to visit? Why?
This doesn't even need thought. There are a few choices but my number one choice would be the NeverNever from Julie Kagawa's The Iron Fey book series. By far at the top of my list for favorite book series. I would love most to explore the land of the Iron Fey, mostly because Meghan is a good ruler unlike the others and probably wouldn't kill me for coming to her land. Plus I just want to meet all the incredible creatures that Kagawa created!

Is there anything that you would like to see change in the coming years?
My ability to have more time to read and blog! I've had to take a lot of time off in the past year due to health, work, school and other things out of my control. I have not read nearly as much as I used to and it upsets me! I use to read before bed, in class, in the car, sitting on the couch while watching TV but not really paying attention to it, etc! I would love to get back into blogging more and build up more followers and a better connection in the book blogging community and be able to have a connection with more authors! I also want to find time to work on my own book!
