    In Turned (Book #1 of the Vampire Journals series), 18-year-old Caitlin Paine finds herself uprooted from her nice suburb and forced to attend a dangerous New York City high school when her Mom moves again. The one ray of light in her new surroundings is Jonah, a new classmate who takes an instant liking to her. But before their romance can blossom, Caitlin suddenly finds herself changing....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I'd rather have spent the time listening to something else, but it was an OK way to distract myself while doing the dishes. About halfway through it was truly difficult to keep going, but I wanted to finish it so I could write an honest review.


    Has Turned turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, vampire books will always will always be one of my favorite genres, but it sure turned me off Morgan Rice!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brianna Knickerbocker?

    Ugh, just ANYONE who doesn't sound like a seventeen year old snotty little girl with a distinct Californian accent. Seriously, ANYONE ELSE. Pronunciation, rythm and pitch were just awful. Needed a little bit more character also.


    Could you see Turned being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No, please. Those Twilight movies were awful enough.


    Any additional comments?

    Characters were very unconvincing, plot was kinda meeh. If the writer would have actually put some effort into the story and characters I would have loved it. But in no way am I buying that within an hour of meeting someone, one could declare a deep love and be hurt by their rejection and so on. Just awful character building. It feels a little like the author is just hurrying to skip to the end of the book. Also Caitlin's relationship with her family seems to completely fade away - is very confusing and weird.

    In summary: Very gripping and convincing in the beginning, but quickly turns to the most ridiculous story I've read.
