Why Are There All These Blank Spaces?

You may notice that in some of my posts there are blank spaces in the reviews. These are spoilers that I've written so I can remember important details of the books when I want to read the sequel. I've made the text a beige color to blend in with the background so you won't accidentally see something you don't want to. If you want to read it, just highlight the section to make the text appear - although you should really just read the book yourself! :)

The Midnight Twins

by Jacquelyn Mitchard

Don't have a lot to say about this book. I never really was sure where it was going - it felt very aimless to me. I had a hard time keeping the main characters apart - twins names Mallory (Mally) and Meredith (Merry). I still can hardly remember which is which, who did what, and if it actually matters. The evil character seemed very cardboard - simply evil for no reason whatsoever. I want the evil characters to have a past or trait that makes them act the way they do. This one was just all of a sudden a "bad guy" - in fact, a very twisted character with absolutely no explanation as to what his story was. Also, the girls are supposed to be 13 in this story, but read more like 16-year-olds to me. I found myself confused a lot. This is supposed to be the beginning to a new series (trilogy I believe) but it wasn't fun or intriguing enough to make me interested in the sequels.
