Review: 3 stars
The Goddess Test was pretty cool. When I was younger I really like Greek mythology. This is a retelling, but it is a very cool take a fascinating world. This book set up the world for a series that has a ton of potential.
The first part of this book was pretty incredible. It had some unexpected twists and it had me on the edge of my seat. For the first half of it I was very excited. Then I got kind of dull and never really picked back up. I was disappointed.
The characters are okay, but I didn’t really connect with them. I felt no connection with romance at all. A lot of times I felt like the author told us things rather than showed us them, which I feel was a big reason for the disconnect. Overall I was kinda disappointed because this had a ton of potential and definitely didn’t live up to it.
