Beware of spoilers But then again just don't read this bookWarning This review is just me being very negative In no way will this review sound intelligent and well written Therefore if you wish to continue you mayAnyway I will start all the way from the beginning There are so many things I'd like to point outI pick up the book I see the cover It's a picture of half a girl's face I'm guessing that's Zoey Whatever I look at the back There is a comment from Gena Showalter on the top that says From the moment I stuck my face in this book it hooked me Totally awesome new take on vampires Marked is hot and dark and funny It rocks First of all what kind of author talks like that? Or is she just as idiotic as the Casts? Or maybe she really did like it Or maybe the Casts made her write that Confused? You'll see what I'm talking about shortly There is also a dreadfully long summary of the whole damn book on the back Way to give away almost everythingThe Characters Let's start with the protagonist herself Zoey Redbird I found someone whinier than Bella Swan Someone stupid than Bella Swan Someone clumsy than Bella Swan Specific evidence of Zoey's stupidity Page 1 If I died would it get me out of my geometry test tomorrow? One could only hopeOh that's completely understandable I mean I feel dumb for thinking about whether I left a lasting legacy I should be thinking about minuscule matters such as school tests Silly me Page 46 She wasn't thin like the freak girls who puked and starved themselves into what they thought was Paris Hilton chic That's hott Yeah okay whatever Paris Freak girls? Because anorexia and bulimia are not serious issues at all Page 100 Cereal? I suddenly perked up I seriously adore cereal and have an I heart Cereal shirt somewhere to prove it Do I need to even explain what's wrong with that?Page 188 Can I ask you something? It's kinda personal Erik said Hey you've seen me drink blood from a cup and like it puke kiss a guy lick his blood like I'm a puppy and then bawl my eyes out And I've seen you turn down a blow job I think I can manage to answer a kinda personal uestion WhatPage 277 Aphrodite laughed a throaty I'm so grown up and you're just a kid laugh I really hate it when girls do that I mean yes she's older but I have boobs tooYes because only breasts signify that a girl is grown up Great message CastsAlso I wanted to shoot myself with the stupid parenthetical overkill they put throughout the whole damn bookI'm not sure if they deliberately created Zoey for the sole reason that we should all hate her They have no idea how teenagers act and talk Apparently all teenagers say LIKE OMG NO WAY YEAH WHATEVER I HAVE BOOBS TOO ZOMGZoey is the special one of a kind chosen one Only she can rule the world basically Her mentor is the best She has all the powers She is the one and only Cliche much? Very I was just sad I was stuck inside her head for the entire book I felt suffocatedZoey's friends are all pathetic excuses for friends The twins are annoying little brats Damon is just a moron And oh yeah the country girl Stevie Rae is just fucking annoyingAphrodite and Erik I couldn't stop laughing every time I read about them AND WHO THE HELL HAS ORAL SEX IN THE MIDDLE OF A SCHOOL HALLWAY? Or am I really that naive when it comes to horny high school children? Erik is the stupid hotter version of Edward Cullen He follows Zoey around He asks her incredibly awkwardcreepy uestions He's just very romantic am I rightErik That's the ugliest thing I've seen in my entire life Aphrodite is just a poor excuse for an antagonist Googles Aphrodite Oh The Greek goddess of love beauty and sexuality Another character whose name defines her personality rolls eyesThe writing I guess editing just lost its meaning in the midst of horrible books Where is Editing? Where are you my love?I'm not even going to talk about the plot because there was no plot I only read half the book painfully but I'm certain there was no plot for the parts I didn't read as well I know this is said very lightly sometimes but this is actually the worst book I've ever read It was so painful to accept that this was actually publishedI just want to say one last important thing to the Casts Read about half of it Hated it I'm returning the rest to the libraryThe authors tried to make so many references to pop culture they sounded ridiculous and then were even proud of themselves for sounding like teenagers as they stated in the preface Dumb They tried to make moral lessons out of the life of this fledgling and had her reject things like Paris Hilton's weight oral sex amongst teenagers and Ashton Kutcher unfortunately liking older women Oh and the world was separated into the vampyres and the religious right Could they be obviously parading their own moral agenda in young adult fiction? Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with the values they project in this book they make it so plain that they are trying to jam pack the book with certain ideals that it turns out like literary crap If you want an awesome captivating fantasy fiction series that gets teenage girls thinking about our over sexualized and beautified culture try Scott Westerfield He's a little subtle and thus reuires some intelligent thought on what you're reading This was how the book started The first two pages literally went like thisTweeny 1 ZOMG like insert some teeny bs gossip here Tweeny 2 ZOMG like no teeny gossip and OMGs Tweeny 1 ZOMG like yeahAll of a sudden some macho vamp guy stands in the hallway points at teeny no #1 and is like ZOEY YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN TO BE THE MAIN CHARACTER IN A BOOK THAT IS SO NOT TRYING TO BE LIKE TWILIGHT BUT YEAH YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSENThen they're like ZOMG YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSENTweeny 1 SNAP I have been chosenTweeny 2 SNAP AND ZOMG YOU'RE A FREAK NOW I'M OUT OF HEREAnd that ladies and gentlemen is how the worst book I have ever read starts off Worse than Twilight worse than Hush hush and worse than Ever almost This book was just one big melodramatic teen angsty bitch fit With vampyres And stereotypes And a sexy hunk And a ueen Bee arch rival And a blowjob And of course the main character is a complete Mary sue once againI first read this just as a laugh because sometimes I want to read bad books for the lolz But what was at first fun to make fun of then turned horrifically bad and eventually so intolerable that I had to close it halfway As soon as Zoey was in love with Shakespeare vampire hunk sorry vampYre I just couldn't handle further stupidity I could not believe this was written by two adults This was like fanfiction I have seen fanfiction which went along pretty much the same basis as this book Heck I have seen fanfiction which was BETTER WRITTEN and BETTER OVERALL than this book Zoey was absolutely frustrating and so easy to hate That's horridly inconvenient since she's the main character and we're being told this 'story' from her perspective She whines and complains about EVERYTHING and is an obvious attempt at a parody of a teenager by these two idiots of women authors A pin would fall to the ground and immediately her life is oooooverrrrrr Also according to Zoey if you don't nail your underwear and your bra to your body and if you don't remain virginal in any way shape or form whether it's kissing a guy or wearing a certain amount of make up or style of clothing you're a total slut Woooow Zo just because you're a goddamn prude it doesn't mean everyone else should be and you shouldn't try to lecture your female readers on their sexuality Just because you're ashamed of sexuality it doesn't mean that's a good thing because you happened to be a main character Also it's pretty obvious you're jealous you yourself can't be that proud Zoey's friends were all painful stereotypes Especially her girl friend what's her name again I don't know My mind shut her out because she was too damn annoying Oh wait Steve or something coughs anyway yeah That chick was an obvious out there comic relief and completely uncalled for Every time she said anything I wanted to punch her I didn't care much for her gay friend either He was just a cliched gay And no I don't have anything against homosexuals That would be awfully hypocritical since I'm a very out of the closet homosexual myself But this guy was boring and cliched Then there's the ueen Bee arch rival yawn Oh here's something I haven't seen before Oh and Zoey falls in love with some vampire guy after he reads a speech from Shakespeare in his sexy vampire hunk voice So within two seconds Zoey is in love True love yada yada he's the one he's so hot all her friends support her love bla bla bla gush gush gush Then I closed the book What a piece of overrated stinky shitty tripe The writing was ridiculous all the characters were boring and annoying and cliched to death and the overall plot was pulled out of both authors nailed shut asshole It was ridiculous The whole book was bloody ridiculous What on earth was I reading? shudder I can't believe this book was published let alone so well received And don't give me that 'it's an amazing booooooook and you're just jealooooousssss' crap Please It's an awful excuse for a book and I would rather watch 2 girls 1 cup again from the beginning to the end this time than have Marked by PC Crap and Kristin Crap sitting on my shelf 35 Stars Zoey Montgomery Night has chosen thee; thy death will be thy birth Night calls to thee; hearken to Her sweet voice Your destiny awaits you at the House of Night” Oh I liked this book SOOOOOOOOO much better than the Stephanie Meyer series these kids are smarter diverse less whiny and far intersting Add to that a new version of vampirism and it's a completely winning combination The story telling is top notch the characters are interesting and the book is compelling start to finish I can't wait to dive into the next in this seriesAnd I have to admit I'm intrigued by the concept of a motherdaughter writing team especially such a successful one That's an interesting story in an of itself Lets get straight to the point hereThis book was weird disgusting and epic fail at the same time Let me tell you the whole story in picturesEnjoy I don't know why but some of the pics are not coming sorry for thatMARKED THE REAL STORYOnce upon a time there was this stupid smart ass girl named Zoey who was marked as a vamp yre But don't worry my fellow readers She was special in failingThen this fail example of women got an annoying boyfriend Heath who is always drunkimage error Okay I'm going to be posting gifs on this review because this book was just too muchMy overall expression after reading up to 150 pagesI wish I could give this 'no star' or something of the sort I don't even know where to begin with this 'book' It was retched horrible disdainful etc etc PC Cast as well as her daughter's writing is childish All the girls had blonde hair auburn blonde strawberry blonde blonde curly blonde etc it's irritating and the only girl besides Zoey that didn't have blonde hair was Shaunee and she was blackI don't care if this book was completely fiction and that it didn't have to be realistic but when you write how the reason these celebrities are amazing and known is because they're vamps I'm going to say you're an idiot Zoey is the biggest hypocrite and I never liked her not even for a bit My friend told me she dated four boys at once Wasn't she shit talking girls in this book for doing stuff like that though? I want to scream This book hadAnnoying teen girlsRidiculous passagesTry hard humourShall I continue? Offensive and ridiculous passages'One was black with impossibly long hair must be a really good weave' These authors see black women with short crappy hair? And if they do have long beautiful hair it's automatically a weave? How rude 'the Mark had somehow made my eyes look even bigger and darker I lined them with a smoky black shadow that had little sparkly flecks of silver in it Not heavily like those loser girls who think that plastering on black eyeliner makes them look cool Yeah right They look like scary raccoons'Loser girls? LOL okay 'Is that a bathroom? I asked as we hurried past water fountains situated between two doorsYep she said Here's my class and there's yours right next door See you after classOkay thanks I calledAt least the bathroom was close If I had a case of raging nervous stomach diarrhoea I wouldn't have to run far'Really? That very last sentence really was not needed They could have at least wrote 'At least the bathroom was close in case of an immense emergency' or something like that'I've only had detention once so far and that wasn't my fault Really Some turd boy told me to suck his cock What was I supposed to do? Cry? Giggle? Pout? Ummno So instead I bitch slapped him although I prefer just using the word smacked'If you prefer using the word 'smacked' then maybe you should have done? 'Turd boy'? 'So what preconceived notions do you have about warriors? she asked the classA blonde who sat on the other side of the room said The s were heavily matriarchal as are all vampyre societiesJeesh she sounded smart'No she just paid attention in class 'I had no idea an hour had passed; the ringing bell was a total surprise I'd just shoved my sociology book back in my cubbie okay I know that Damien and Neferet called them cabinets but come on they totally remind me of the cubbies we used to have in kindergarten'Oh God'The door opened an oh my sweet lord I do believe my heart totally stopped beating I'm positive my mouth flopped open like a moron He was the most gorgeous young lad I had ever seen'LOL'yeah like having poopies for brains I said staring down the hall like the slug's back'I don't know what she's trying to prove using the word 'poopie' Who even says that?'Lunch was a huge build your own salad buffet which included everything from tuna salad eesh to those weird mini corns that are so confusing and don't even taste like corn What exactly are they? Baby corn? Midget corn? Mutant corn?''The whole place had that sawdusty horsey smell that mixed with leather to form something that was pleasant even though you know that part of the pleasant was poopie horse poopie' Nobody finds the smell of 'horse poopie' pleasant Nobody'Zoey There you areOhmygod Stevie Rae You scared the poo out of me'Lord help these so called 'writers' Please I dropped the book after that I'm done I refuse to finish this book Everyone thinks Twilight is bad? Twilight doesn't have a damn thing on this crappy excuse of a book The writing of this 'book' makes Twilight seem as though it was perfectly written okay I'm over exaggerating a tad bit but it's still better than this At least I read through the whole book and that's saying something Am I right or am I right? I mean really the average user rating for this is 383 stars? WOW Just WOWLet me also add that these authors think they've done an amazing job with sounding like teenagers riiiiight keep telling yourselves that Hypersexed boy crazy annoying teens Plus some uninteresting supernatural stuff every once in awhile For a series that involves so many teenagers having sex these books sure aren't very sexy About 5 years ago when I first read this series I powered through them and while I recognised they were problematic I still consider them a guilty pleasure the books are just so BAD and fun 15 stars are purely for how trashyfun this book was This was SUPER problematic though which made me cringe a lot It's homophobic yes I know there's a gay character but the 'joke' at the beginning saying he isn't really a guy because of this is really really fucking bad it has plenty of slut shaming Zoey has issues with the word shit she says POOPIE ffs yet has no problem calling Aphrodite a slut every five seconds Idk it was fun but it's so so bad as well I will be continuing my reread though as I can't remember much and I want to see how it all ends Not recommended Slut shaming and actual depictions of non consensual sex present
