we were young and naive still

Ya'aburnee means you bury me. (That is to say - I hope to die first, for I cannot go on without you.)

If there's something I'm picky about, it's the narrative style. It drives me out of my mind to read clumsy dialogue, and let's not even speak about bitchy girls who're supposed to be cute? I didn't like Cat. Not at all. She was unkind, stupid, she's not even funny to make up for it, and I didn't even get that far but it's obvious her mother bullies her around. I get that Mommy Dearest is all she's got but give me a fucking break. "You've got a monster inside you" -- or whatever, am not gonna check the exact quote now -- isn't precisely the correct way to tell a bird she's the product of rape. I'm just sick of these god-awful parents. WHEN IS A HEROINE GOING TO HAVE A TERRIBLY, TERRIBLY AWESOME FAMILY?
So, yeah. The good points: Bones, even if his nickname made me stare at the screen for a few second, the perverted poltergeist scene. I don't know. I was squirming so badly because I wanted her to tell things in a smoother way that I kind of freaked. Maybe she gets better later, yeah. I mean, this was published back in 2007 or something, right? But I won't read them. I have like three hundred books waiting to be read on my tablet.
*exhale* I'm disappointed -- in myself -- because I didn't even hit the halfway-there mark but I got impatient, because I just finished reading a really good book and so all the little things that bothered me were worse.
