Review The Book of Ivy

The Book of Ivy

F the losing side to the sons of the winning group in a yearly ritual This year it is my turn My name is Ivy Westfall and my mission is simple to kill the president’s son my soon to be husband and restore the Westfall family to power But Bishop Lattimer is either a very skilled acto. YES DAT ENDING DOEOkay I was totally prepared to give this like 35 or 4 stars It was enjoyable but there wasn t much going on storywise And then somewhere nearing the end things went exactly in the direction I wanted it to go and the ending even though it s a cliffhanger still left me really really fucking satisfied I thought this book was good before but after finishing it I can honestly say I would stamp AWESOME onto the coverAlso side note before I read this book I jokingly put in this review that perhaps Ivy was a descendant of Chaolaena Celaena and Chaol from the Throne of Glass series since her last name is Westfall Do I still think it Sure why not xD Ivy wasn t as badass as Celaena but she was still pretty likable and I have a feeling she will be badass in book 2Lots of fun this was Really satisfying ending I has high hopes for the rest of the series

After a brutal nuclear war the United States was left decimated A small group of survivors eventually banded together but only after conflict over which family would govern the new nation The Westfalls lost Fifty years later peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters o. My name is Ivy Westfall and my mission is simple to kill the president s son my soon to be husband and return the Westfall family to power So the premise is grandiose AMAZING I didn t want to expect much from this book but how could I not with that enticing blurb and beautiful cover In fact it all screamed KICKASS And a kickass dystopian book is always welcome Always But this book barely contained any action There was secrecy and plotting of course but no real and convincing execution around themIn fact if I were the main character not only would I have been DEAD but also very very BORED Ivy doesn t have a choice she must marry Bishop the president s son In her post apocalyptic world every sixteenseventeen year old boy and girl must take a spouse to procreate And if that doesn t work out they have one thing left work If they don t follow the rules they are excommunicated and not so gently pushed on the other side of the fenceAnd those people generally dieBut Ivy and her family want everything to change By killing Bishop and the president her own father will be able to gain power and integrate democracy to their nation It s a really good plan and had it been put to execution with seriousness and fatality it could have been a grand successBut then there s Bishop the sweet thoughtful and enigmatic Bishop who inconveniently stole Ivy s heart Now the planshe has doubts Is it the right thing to do Does he deserve it She kept asking those uestions ALL PLOT LONG And the thing is I knew from when they first arrived in their house and Bishop showed himself to be kind to her that everything has been jeopardized already Ivy was never a criminal and I didn t want her to be one but some action would have been very welcome in the plotI honestly tried to enjoy this but Ivy and Bishop s relationship was so so TAME And predictable Unsurprising Sleep worthy I saw no chemistry between them let alone feel any captivating atmosphere throughout the read Another thing that I didn t enjoy was the pacing it was slower than in any dystopian book I have read before Allegiant aside not sure if any book could ever beat this latter Probably because not much is happening The writing was okay but very standard when I believe it could have been richer in term of vocabularyIvy was sincerely annoying Overall okay as a person but her personality bent toward recklessness oh so many times Keep your mouth closed I tell myself Just shut up But I can t and My head knows what a terrible idea this is screaming me to stop that I m taking things to far but and Against my better judgement No If your instinct tells you to NOT do something then perhaps the wisest thing to do would be listening to it For once Needless to say she was repeatedly busted She also must have gotten some special treatment because if I look at the world she lives in many would have been suspicious toward her and investigated in her personage to finally put to pieces everything and resolve the puzzleI tried to but didn t agree with her at many points For instance she said Sometimes pain is the only language certain people understand I don t believe that I don t believe you ought to hurt some to make them listen to you but hey it s personal plus very controversial As this is I don t want to give up like my own mother Now is it because someone commits suicide that they give up Not sure but I certainly didn t like how easily and with no second thoughts she uttered those wordsThere barely was any world building The setting did vary but they weren t described enough and absolutely not exploited The author s main idea was a good one and uite interesting but her not developing it at its full potential backfired because I couldn t believe and imagine this story at one hundred percent in my mindFor those who want a UITE simple and uneventful dystopian read mostly focused on the characters and the romance filled with angst this could probably work for you I wanted though It could have been so much
