Pretties (Uglies Trilogy, Book 2)

Pretties - Scott Westerfeld I was warned when I started to read this that Pretties wasn’t as good as Uglies. I scoffed at the idea. Uglies was awesome, the sequel should be awesome too, right? After finishing the book, I completely understand what everyone was warning me about. Pretties was good but it definitely lacked something that Uglies had.I’m really not a fan of romances. They always just seem forced in YA books. With that being said, I kind of liked whatever Tally and David had going in the first book. So when Pretties began I was annoyed at Tally’s behavior but I had to remind myself of the circumstances of the last book. I let it slide. Maybe it’s just me but the book’s romantic vibes were just weird. Tally’s relationship with Zane felt really rushed and then towards the end of the book, the love triangle was odd. I mean, I understand why it’s there but it was too cliche for my taste.Read the rest of my review at The Cheap Reader.
