Has anyone read this?  I just finished the first chapter and I'm not impressed at all.  Does it get better?

I just got offered it today from my wl.  I went ahead and ordered it -- I hope it gets better.  Anyone?  Is there hope?

I liked Accidental Werewolf even though it was slow in the beginning.  It picks up later on as the main character gets less annoying about her color wheels!  lol  I would not recommend Accidentally Dead, though.  I'm not easily offended and the author's language was horrible.

I like the series. Its fun and just fluffy - but yes, you have to be able to get past the language. It's pretty bad.

I enjoyed it but I was in the mood for silly humor though her going on and on about the damn color wheel got old fast..I have the 2nd in tbr.my coworker read them and said the 2nd was pretty similar to the first.don't have the 3rd yet.

It got better.  But she whined way too much at the begining.

I really didn't like it at all.  The color wheel thing was so annoying.  I think I spent most of the book rolling my eyes going "Why am I still reading this'?  This woman is suppose to be what 30? and acts like she is 16.  I really couldn't stand the "pinky promise" thing she does.  Sorry - not my cup of tea I guess.

I have read so many positive reviews for this and it's so good to see that I'm not the only who didn't like it! It is very cutesy...and despite what the all the reviews have said, it's not really funny either. If you don't mind that, it's not terrible. Mind you it's isn't great either, but it's readable.

-Lol. I think I wrote that exact same thing in the review I wrote for it :) and it's very very true!

I decided to do what Norma did...took the rest out of my WL.  That color wheel thing--I just couldn't get past it.

you definitely have to be in the mood for it..I happened to be in the mood at the time..had just gotten back from hauling it out of town and back again from hurricane Ike and my work was still closedwaiting for electricity so I was curled in the big comfy chair reading and laughing. It was just a total escape for me but it WAS silly which I know some people just don't like.

It didn't bother me--I  used it as a break between some darker books that I had been reading.  I have Accidently Dead in my TBR but haven't got to it yet.

Oh great!  I have the first one on my TBR pile and the second one on WL.  After reading all the above, I'm thinking about taking off the second

from my WL.  You guys are pretty dead on with the reveiws.
