Hello friends! Today I have my book review of Crazy by Eve Langlais.
Crazy is the first book in the Crazy Ella in Love series.
Trigger Warnings: Rape Mention, Abuse Mention, Blood, Fighting, Murder
Ella’s always heard voices and because of them, she ends up institutionalized at a young age. Everyone calls her crazy and she believes she is too until the night she meets a vampire and for the first time in her life, the voices shut up.
Zane just wants to enjoy his usual blood buffet, instead he runs into a wisp of a woman who makes him feel emotions he thought long dead. Rescuing her from the insane asylum, he brings her home, determined to seduce and feed from her, a plan that is foiled by ghostly voices determined to keep Ella untouched. But not even poltergeists can stand in the way of a vampire in love.
Before reading Crazy, I thought that the synopsis was very intriguing. I also thought that I’d end up really enjoy reading this novel. How wrong I was on both accounts.
Within Crazy, there are two points of view. We read from Ella, and Zane.
Ella just seems to accept everything that she learns and doesn’t question anything with intensity. Honestly she’s boring apart from being a Soul Sorceress
Zane is even more dull in that he’s a vampire who is 327 years old.
The way that certain things were explained throughout the story….I couldn’t enjoy the explanations. They made me feel itchy.
Another thing that I didn’t like is that both Ella and Zane used the same kind of lingo. Which could be a forgetful thing on the writers part—- I don’t know. But the way that Ella used lingo was confusing. I also expected that Zane would use an older type of speech. But they didn’t, and that in itself is…..mind-boggling to me. Also, for some reason, I read this book in an English accent—and that doesn’t happen often.
I give Crazy, 1 star. Honestly, I’m being generous with the one star. I don’t even want to rate it, lol.
I didn’t read far enough into Crazy’s synopsis, so I didn’t actually read that Crazy is a Paranormal Romantic Comedy. I still stand by my 1 star rating. I genuienly did not like Crazy.. The romance in this novel is…..just insta-love, insta-lust and I insta-hated it.
