    1. Beware of spoilers But then again, just don t read this book Warning 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 may.Anyway, I will start all the way from the beginning There are so many things I d like to point out.I 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 say [...]


    2. Read about half of it Hated it I m returning the rest to the library.The 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 [...]


    3. A little while ago, I bought a battered old vampire novel for 1.50 from a charity shop Yet the moment I started posting that I was reading it on GoodReads RUN AWAY WHILE YOU CAN THIS BOOK WAS AWFUL, YOUR EYEBALLS ARE GOING TO BLEED OUT OF YOUR SKULL DROP IT RIGHT NOW YOU LL BE SO MUCH HAPPIER IF YOU NEVER READ THIS PIECE OF CRAP YOU POOR THING, I LL BE PRAYING FOR YOU EVERY NIGHT Or something akin to that.And were my friends right YES Yes they were This book is absolutely atrocious I haven t com [...]


    4. This was how the book started The first two pages literally went like this Tweeny 1 ZOMG like insert some teeny bs gossip here Tweeny 2 ZOMG like no teeny gossip and OMGs Tweeny 1 ZOMG like yeah All 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 CHOSEN Then they re like ZOMG YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN Tweeny 1 SNAP I have been chosen T [...]


    5. 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 series And I have to admit I m intrigued by the concept of a mother daughter writing team, especially such a successful one Th [...]


    6. Lets get straight to the point here.This book was weird, disgusting and epic fail at the same time Let me tell you the whole story in pictures.Enjoy I don t know why, but some of the pics are not coming, sorry for that MARKED THE REAL STORY.Once upon a time, there was this stupid, smart ass girl named Zoey who was marked as a vampyre But don t worry my fellow readers She was special failing.Then this fail example of women got an annoying boyfriend, Heath who is always drunk image error She joine [...]


    7. 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.


    8. Okay, I m going to be posting gifs on this review because this book was just too much.My overall expression after reading up to 150 pages I 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 P.C 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 [...]


    9. 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 1.5 stars are purely for how trashy fun 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 [...]


    10. If you were looking for books that embody rape culture , slut shaming and overall being a terrible human being this book is for you Look no further than some of this creative narrative Her body was, well, perfect 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 First of all , you should never make fun of people with eating disorders I have an issue with making fun of serious issues , but it [...]


    11. Have you or have you not always wanted to know are you a good girl or a bad girl A blushing virgin or a streetwalker Mother Theresa or Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman You can know now Just take the newest test An Ultimate Slut Test by Cosmopolitan me Zoey Redbird Grab a pen and a piece of paper and let s begin 1 Have you ever wanted to kiss a boy after knowing him for a short while 2 Have you ever had a crush on celebrity 3 Have you ever kissed a boy in public 4 Have you ever kissed a boy, period [...]


    12. DNF at about 25% Wow This has to be the worst Young Adult I have ever read It was written about the same time as Twilight maybe a couple of years later , but Twilight was SO MUCH better This book is horrible, in that it is filled with so many judgmental stereotypes I can only imagine that this was geared to brain dead teens without a lick of intelligence because I can t find anything good about this I have read a LOT of YA written way after this and written recently that is FANTASTIC Even though [...]


    13. To be quite honest, I almost don t know what to say, or how to say it I read just under half of Marked this morning, then set it gently aside and stared at the wall in a numb silence for a while Perhaps, in hindsight, I should have thrown it Marked is, quite simply, the worst book I have ever read in my entire life Forget one star, this book has achieved negative stars from me The horror began with the Acknowledgements P.C Cast actually thanked her daughter for making sure they sounded like teen [...]


    14. I know, I can t believe I read this book either What s worse I ve read all of them the six that have been published Why Because I m a moron, that s why.Seriously, this is the worst YA vampire I mean vampyre series I ve read so far While there are elements in this series that are interesting, it s nothing special I mean, vampyres that control the elements Come on Richelle Mead already did that, just much, much, much better Much better Why not just write a book about witches Because these vampyres [...]


    15. I would like to thank the House of Night Series for showing me that, making nonsensical pop culture references and mocking my target audience will create an instant bestseller Claiming that goths don t bathe and emos are freaks is the absolute best thing to do in a series that sports covers gothier than Marylin Manson post Spooky Kids Calling any number of girls ho s, for no reason other than jealousy, and being racially insensitive is the sure way to go Thank you Marked by P.C Cast Kristin Cast [...]


    16. The easiest rating I ve ever given a book Let us please bury the fact I gave Marked four stars upon first reading I was only 14 or 15 at the time and in that stage of adolescence the fangirling, over excitable stage which no person wants to look back on Gah So embarrassing.But then, a few days ago, I stumbled upon Marked again in the library I was curious as to what I d think of the book now I d grown up a bit in both senses of the word And my brother was still trying to hunt down a big fat text [...]


    17. This was a really quick read, made even quicker by skipping over the pages of repetitive neo pagan vampyre rituals which I could have done entirely without The author is clearly trying to win over the wiccan teen demographic, while appealing to those who loved the Twilight series What bugged me most about this one was the author s attempt to address every controversial teen issue imaginable, while instilling good morals without being condescending She managed, but honestly, the random commentary [...]


    18. This probably one of the worst books I have ever read It was horrible The writing was stupid If you like to read a grown woman try to talk like a teenager then this is for you I hated it I mean I felt stupid after reading some of this They compared people to Paris Hilton, and Ashton Kutcher, they brought oral sex into and they didn t just briefly talk about it they made it stretch out over a couple of chapters This mother daughter writing team needs to rethink working together again My daughter [...]


    19. 16 year old Zoey has a crappy home life, an almost ex boyfriend who drinks too much, a best friend who s shallow and a geometry test tomorrow But all this matters for naught when she is Marked by a Vampyre Tracker and must move to the House of Night school in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for four years while her body undergoes the Change into a Vampyre or rejects it and she dies.This is a new and original take on the Vampire legends, and mixes in matriarchy and goddess worship with pleasing effect Zoey beco [...]


    20. 1.5 Stars Okaaaay So my theory is this Overly hyped books like House of Night and Mortal Instruments were released near 2005 when there were very few YA Fantasy books and that s the reason these books are so famous I mean, people are totally crazy about HoN MI even though there are many books which are much better than these So, House of Night.This book had a weak plot, weak as inpointless plot.Why did Zoey get Marked And why especially by the Goddess Nyx The author didn t have any theory she ju [...]


    21. This book was so bad, I wanted to quit reading it, but then I could not have fairly rated it So despite my better judgment I read on, wincing all the way Marked tries so hard to be hip but like totally fails I know you have to be careful when choosing YA books Some of it is great it resonates with those of all ages And some of it, like this book, is YA crap.The main character was also very poorly created She enjoyed reading the horrid Gossip girl series, yet was critical of her sexually active c [...]


    22. EDIT 28 03 14 I finally remember what Marked reminds me of It reminds me of that horrible Harry Potter fanfiction My Immortal They re basically the same, except Marked has much better spelling Thankfully.Well, hell I finished Marked.Marked is not the worst book I have ever read Halo still tops that list But, damn, I haven t rolled my eyes so much sincence anything, actually I actually took the liberty to tab every single annoying line in Marked, and here is how many post its I wasted My post its [...]


    23. This is literally the worst published book I have ever read in my life Every time I so much as think about this book, or this series in general, I suddenly have the urge to take a nine iron to an old lady, or set a kitten on fire or something else just as random and pointless that won t actually solve my hatred towards this piece of crap but will help release some of my anger because Zoey is only a fictional character and I can t actually kill her will a dull axe deep breath It s times like thes [...]


    24. For reviews, contests, interviews, book news and go to my blog theheelshaveeyes.wordpress Shambles, an absolute bloody shambles is how I can best describe this book.I don t know what was worse, the tacky and unsympathetic attitude towards eating disorder victims, the blas attitude towards male rape the hallway scene, imagine the gender roles reversed and you ll see how sexist it is , or the constant usage of the words slut and hoe, oh yeah what a great example we re setting for young girls Cal [...]



    25. Typical teen story in which there is a black and white delineation between the heroes and the villains, and you will never mistake one for the other Our heroine comes from a troubled family, longs for a place to belong, is marked as incredibly and shockingly extraordinary amongst her new peers, butts heads with the queen of the school who is also the flatly drawn villainess, immediately catches the eye of the hottest guy at school who is also the ex of our villainess, shows remarkable powers and [...]


    26. Marked is one of the worst written books I ve read in a long, long time It is incomprehensible how an intelligent and or civilized person could enjoy a book like this Although it s understandable how someone could get swept up in the average, mundanely composed storyline, the writing oh man, I think I might have lost a few brain cells Hopefully reading this book hasn t permanently damaged my own writing.One of the most annoying things was Zoey, the main character, had a tendency to think in rand [...]


    27. This book was recommended to me by my niece I got her started with vampire books sometime back with Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse books And I was the one who introduced her to Twilight She gave me one of Richelle Mead s Vampire Academy books I liked it, so figured this series might be okay, too WRONG Others have mentioned the preponderance of pop culture references, which was annoying However, my main quibbles are with Zoey s perfectness and what seemed to me to be a major Christian bashing [...]
