Invisibility by Andrea Cremer & David Levithan Review

11147422[1]Goodreads Description: Stephen has been invisible for practically his whole life — because of a curse his grandfather, a powerful cursecaster, bestowed on Stephen’s mother before Stephen was born. So when Elizabeth moves to Stephen’s NYC apartment building from Minnesota, no one is more surprised than he is that she can see him. A budding romance ensues, and when Stephen confides in Elizabeth about his predicament, the two of them decide to dive headfirst into the secret world of cursecasters and spellseekers to figure out a way to break the curse. But things don’t go as planned, especially when Stephen’s grandfather arrives in town, taking his anger out on everyone he sees. In the end, Elizabeth and Stephen must decide how big of a sacrifice they’re willing to make for Stephen to become visible — because the answer could mean the difference between life and death. At least for Elizabeth.

My Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars

My Review: 

So this book is nothing like I had expected. Which is good and bad.. I am not familiar with David Levithan’s writing but I’m guessing he does romance or something like that. I AM familiar with Andrea Cremer’s writing, she’s one of my favorite authors (oh how I love Shay!)She writes paranormal and fantasy. I could kind of see where Levithan’s influence in the book stopped half way and Cremer started the paranormal stuff. I think I would’ve more enjoyed the book if their writing was more of a good mix rather than half and half. Because I wasn’t really seeing the romance between Elizabeth and Stephen as much in the second half of the book. I liked the fact that Stephen had his own POV! I rarely get to read what’s going on in the guy’s head. But I didn’t like the fact that there wasn’t any warning to when the point of views were switching. I would be reading in Stephen’s POV and then he would suddenly get cut off on the next paragraph by Elizabeth’s. I think it would’ve been better if there was a little bit more organization with it. The book was interesting to me until I discovered the main conflict, which was about on page 124. After I discovered the conflict, the book started to get boring. It was missing action. Although I regained that interest, it seemed like there should’ve something more in the book.

I believe Stephen is my new book boyfriend 🙂 He is so sweet and he thinks about everyone else. Yup, he’s mine!
