Goddess Interrupted (The Goddess Test #2) by Aimee Carter

Bella Swan gets a lot of flack. I personally think she is one brave girl. In the first book, Twilight, after finding out that the guy she has only know for a few months is a vampire, she's like, "That's cool. You won't hurt me." That takes guts! But she ends up getting a bad rap for when he leaves in New Moon and she just gets all mopey for several months instead of doing something productive.

Kate Winters was similar to me in Goddess Interrupted. The book was one big spinning wheel of listening to Kate feeling insecure and everyone telling her she has no reason to. I mean, I understand the scenario -- I do. Your husband is obviously in love with a woman who broke his heart and you feel like you can never live up to that. It sucks, it does. But the entire middle section of the book was Kate thinking about how she felt insecure, whining to the other gods that she feels insecure, then whining to Henry to do something about it. AND THEN she has the audacity to get mad at James for something he did thousands of years before she even existed! Really, Kate?! You're going to hold that against your best friend??!? And then the straw that broke the camel's back for me was when some chick she didn't even know had to reassure her that Henry loved her. Because it wasn't enough to hear it from her mother and all the other gods!

I have to be honest...I almost gave up halfway though this book.

I'm glad I didn't, though. I had heard all these mysterious comments about a cliffhanger ending -- and it is. I wasn't expecting any part of that at all! And for all my whining about the middle of the book, it made the final scenes between Kate and Henry that much sweeter.

I am expecting great things for The Goddess Inheritance. It will start off with some great action, and I think Kate will finally, truly be at her best and ready to help the other gods win the war.

  1. Great review! I have a feeling I'm going to get very annoyed with Kate in this book, going by what you said. I wasn't a huge fan of TGT, but I enjoyed it enough to request the sequel for review. I've heard some bad things though, so I'm biting my nails!

  2. I'm in the middle of Goddess Interrupted right now. I've been taking my time, but after reading your review I might just read a little faster. I didn't know there was a cliffhanger ending!

  3. I loved this whole series. It was a very interesting why to understand the mythological gods as having human emotions and living life as commonly as humans do. Thank you very much for this series.
