The Glamorous Life
review 1: This book was short, but I loved it! It was exciting and extremely intense, I read it in 2 days. It kept me going, I really hope there's part 3. I was confused at first when I picked up glamorous life part 2 because I read part 1, and it was about Bambi and Lynx. But part 2, the story started out with new characters and I thought I got the wrong book, but come to find out, Bambi and Lynx are in the story but they come up later on and the new characters connect with the old ones and it gets exciting. When I was reading the new characters I didn't wanna read the old ones but they came up in the story and it was put together well, the characters all have connected and the story was a page turner, I can't wait to read part 3(if it comes out) I loved this book, even if it was s... morehort.
review 2: I won a copy from Goodreads First Reads. The synopsis on the Goodreads page of this book doesn't match the book's plot. I only include the synopsis (If you're looking at my blog) on here as proof. Anyway, I pretty sure that some of you guys notice that my reviews are getting shorter. Well, the truth is that I'm competing in a competition that is going to take the majority of my time and focus. Even though my school is crazy already (tons of classes, more than other people, don't ask), I decided to do some extra stuff, like doing competition. I'm not doing this to win. I'm doing this for myself, because I want to improve upon myself, make me a better analyser, a better speller (you guys probably wouldn't notice thanks to abc spell check), and a better writer (yeah, the competition has something to do with English, unfortunately [Yay! says my mother]). The competition will be over by the end of November.Okay, back to the book. I'm sorry if I wasted any moment of your life by writing that previous paragraph. It was unintentional, but it needed. All That Glitters Isn't Gold (let's just call it The Glamorous Life 2) stars not Bambi, but the mistress of Lynx. We learn all the mistress' misfortunes and near deaths. We see what she lost and what she gain before finally meeting Lynx (kind of like how she met Lynx book, instead of Lynx telling the story of how he met their mother to his little boy). The mistress is pretty much a hypocrite, although she is awesome and amazing in her own way. After being nearly raped along with arrested, and etc., she became a dancer (at a strip club) and tried to prevent her brother from dealing drugs. Her brothers wants the opposite. Of course, that doesn't work out because dancing is a legal profession while dealing drugs is an illegal profession. The drug dealer may be murdered by a junkie. And yes, that drug dealer does get murdered. But why is she a hypocrite? Now we got to go back to her mother. Her mother. A character that is pretty much 2D and only out there in the world for only one person. Herself. Lynx's mistress once said that she doesn't want to be like her mother. She's not like her mother, or so she thinks. There she is, depending on a man, trying to carve a living for herself. The plot of The Glamorous Life 2 is pretty straight forward and relies on other characters to move it forward. What a shame. I thought if the mistress or Bambi was more interactive, the book might be much more interesting. And the ending. *Raises eyebrows*Rating: Three out of Five-ofpaperandwords.blogspot.com less
