Please Note: This is a review for the second book in a series. I tried to keep my review as vague as possible in order to not spoil anything.
Title: My Date from Hell (The Blooming Goddess Trilogy #2)
Author: Tellulah Darling
Date of Publication: October 31, 2013
Acquisition: YA Bound Book Tours
Fall for the prince of the Underworld and the goddess made flesh
Love comes in all forms. – Francine
This is my third Tellulah Darling book so far, and I easily fell in love with this series. The first book, My Ex from Hell, is still my favorite at the moment, but I cannot deny how good this sequel is. My Date from Hell provides a summary at the start of the book for the first book, but I still recommend that My Ex from Hell should be read before reading this one. It will be more awesome that way. Also, I will be very vague in this review because I really don’t want to spoil this for anybody.
Sophie Bloom, who previously found out that Persephone was spirited into her body, still does not have all of Persephone’s memories that are needed to save the world. This book is a quest to retrieve Sophie’s memories, undo Aphrodite’s arrow, and keep out of Zeus’ and Hades’ grasp before they kill her. Oh, and Sophie also has to deal with her hot-and-cold ex from hell, Kai. I think the emphasis should be on the hot. 😛
In this book, Sophie would be more acquainted with some other Greek gods and she will find out more about herself and everyone else. I just love the unique personalities that Tellulah Darling gave to each of the gods. I wasn’t expecting any of them, and I just kept on laughing. My favorite one would definitely be Festos! I was seriously surprised and delighted to get to know what was behind the facade he first put up when Sophie first met him. Also, I love Sophie’s account of Zeus. I think I laughed the most for that one. And who ever thought Eros could be hot? Of course we’ll still see the people we first met in the first book, and I definitely loved Sophie’s best friends, Theo and Hannah, more. And also fall more for Kai.
I don’t want to spoil anything, but for that one part near the end, I think that Sophie brought her own misfortune upon herself. That one was just frustrating! Oh, and a word of warning, this will end on a cliffhanger too. But thankfully the last installment will be coming out next month.
OVERALL, My Date from Hell is simply brilliant, although I still like My Ex From Hell more. This is one of those book series that I should have read sooner. Tellulah Darling’s writing is sassy, witty, and hilarious. The romance was just wonderful, especially for the new relationships formed in this one. I like how more was shown in this book. Some history will be laid out, and it can be seen how each of the characters developed. Also, there is more traveling in this book, and more characters to meet and enjoy. I am really looking forward to the last book, My Life from Hell!
Don’t miss My Life From Hell, releasing March 20, 2014. Which is also spring equinox and the date of Sophie’s final showdown with Zeus and Hades in the book.
