It took me so long reading it, trudging through it by bits and pieces at a time because it was so completely, utterly unabsorbing.

Dreamless by Josephine Angelini – review | Children’s books | The Guardian

The Gods come out to play and Helen’s world is vy to change. Follow Helen, Lucas and Orion as the face off against the newly released Greek gods and goddesses as they fight for control and attempt to stop the chaos that surrounds them as the world is thrown into unbalance.

If you don’t want to read my entire rant about why Dreamless was even more insipid than its shitty predecessor, I’ll briefly summarize why I hated it: Hardcoverpages. Helen enters the Underworld in her dreams. Yet, denying their unforgettable love sends them both to breaking point. He’s such a neat character and he’s so kind and sweet. The editing also irked me.


It was completely amazing and wrapped up the book beautifully, while leaving just enough unanswered and undone for the third book.

The plot was a finely tuned vessel, that’s for sure. For a book of this length, it has a surprising lack of depth. Revealed to be a Greek archetype in the last novel. May 14, “That’s All” Ash rated it really liked it Shelves: They make women look like whores and they’re just so Someone really dropped the ball on that one. The simple math laid out in Starcrossed would say no, but Helen’s mother, Daphne said otherwise.

What’s so bizarre about the story? They helped move the plot, but they didn’t move me. But I have to admit one thing.

Dreamless by Josephine Angelini – review

My lips pucker at the sight of him and everything. I know we’re cousins and that’s totally gross but we’re meant to be together so why are you being such a jerWhy hello there, handsome, what’s your name? Read more of my reviews angeilni Sparkles and Lightning!

josrphine If you haven’t read this series, start it right now!! Ryan Calejo Release Date: Oh, and if that little generalization isn’t bad enough, the Latina characters in this book are described frequently as saucy.

You just hated it because I’m beautiful. But it’s not the type of frustration that results from annoyance: Oh, and you know have a lightening bolt scar like Harry freaking Potter. So I guess now, I’m going to start my rant.


So this is a link to an email from Angelini that actually does clear up this date discrepancy. But a world without sleep is a dangerous place and Helen finds her life rapidly deteriorating along with her sanity. I said to shut up.

It was only pages! I still have no clue why none of the characters dreamleess smart enough to figure it out. I was thinking of DNF-ing this book numerous times. Join the site and send us your review! ZACK I felt really sorry for Zack in this one, and was sad to see some of his choices but glad to see others.

I finally sat down today and finished it, and I was a little disappointed when I was done. The pacing is far more bearable than Starcrossed, and keeps things going at a nice, steady walk through the hell-raising events that follow.

Jesus, can’t you give it a rest. In particular, the development of our protagonist, Helen, from the first book to the second is empowering. If I really had to choose, I’d probably–oh, come on, I can’t choose! I want them to be together! Can’t wait to see what happens next. In fact, I’m the most freaking beautiful girl in the world.
