    One thought on “Swoon”

    1. Swoon is another book from Simon and Schuster's spring release list -- the hardcover hits bookstores May 2009. And all I can ask myself is "why?"I tried to like this book. I really did. I told myself it was edgy, and tried to look at it from a teen's perspective. The premise grabbed me: malevolent, vengeful ghost takes possession of a teen and wrecks havoc on the town that wronged him in the 1700s. The teen's cousin is the only one who knows about the possession . . . and she's in love with the [...]

    2. Beware fellow readers: The blurb may seem promising, but DO NOT BE TAKEN IN. I'd love to meet the person who wrote the blurb, as I think I can safely say all who read this book have done so because of it. I picked up Swoon expecting a pretty generic but hopefully enjoyable read.Sadly, I was misled. I wanted to be a trooper and bravely carry on reading this book, but it got to the point where I just couldn't make my poor mind take in any more.For me, it was the spanking scene. Yep, you heard righ [...]

    3. Swoon was totally not what I was expecting. And not in a bad way, just much more dark, edgy and sensual than I had anticipated. In the vast sea of ya paranormals this one definitely left it’s mark on me. Malkin has a way with words, originally I was intimidated by the size, well actually, I was just afraid it would take me awhile to read it, but essentially it took me no time at all, it was surprisingly addictive. The pages were turning non-stop. It’s one of those novels where you just have [...]

    4. Is it just me, or do YA authors strive to disprove everything they teach us about drugs in high school?I mean, first it was Holly Black in Valiant, now it's Nina Malkin. Not to mention Alyson Noel's Evermore, where heroine Ever Bloom gets over her budding alcoholism in less than a minute. I mean, are they lying to us in school when they say it takes one go to become a cocaine addict or are these authors bullshitting with us? I'm well aware that alcoholism isn't something you just shrug off, so I [...]

    5. I didn't really care that the content was adult- and by adult I mean I've read cleaner sex scenes in trashy adult romance novels. It was just the extent of it. On EVERY PAGE. Fondlingx.s? Seriously? This is Young Adult Lit? I thought the beastiality in Tender Morsels was bad. This was soft porn for teens. We didn't get a full description of Sin's manhood- but I am sure that is what the sequels are for. The story- could have been cool, minus the possession via tree fall bit. The Dice's obsession, [...]

    6. I am sort of sad that Nina Malkin is not a author, because this review will be somewhat in vain and this crazy tour around Inansityville will continue unhindered. Because, seriously. This piece of trash has a sequel and where there is one, there are many. This I have learnt from Twilight and Shiver.Basically, this one reads like a Mills and Boon Blaze novel and Twilight were left to their own devices and managed to procreate even though the parts were not quite compatible.This is YA erotica. An [...]

    7. I got to that rape scene and was done. I just couldn't do it. Two women I love and respect to my very core (who I shall not name) are rape victims. One of them has talked about it with me. It almost ruined her life. And to see a author of YA romance fiction treat it like a joke made me cry. I'm serious, I cried. I cried because young girls are reading this and think that rape is funny. They might think that no one will care if they scream for help. Or maybe, the one that really gets me, those yo [...]

    8. Soapbox Review to come. I told myself that I was doing very well this year without having read a single book that I thought was worth one star or less, and then I picked up this YA title from the library. It was a quick read, but my mind can't wrap around how many things are justwrong with this story, and it includes, but isn't limited to, the graphic content.***Nina Malkin's "Swoon" takes the title of being the worst YA novel I've ever read. Not just one of the worst, but the worst novel in its [...]

    9. Swoon, Connecticut, population 500 or so and with no cell phone reception, seems a pretty dull hamlet to 17-year-old Candice "Dice" Moskow, whose parents have moved her there from New York City due to its proximity to family. However, things get a little more interesting when Dice's gorgeous cousin Pen falls out of a tree while doing acrobatics after smoking pot (don't try this at home, kids). Pen has been possessed by the spirit of 21-year-old Sinclair Youngblood Powers, who was hanged from the [...]

    10. Torn from her native New York City, nickname-loving Candice (or Dice) is resigned to accept her fate when she is transported into Swoon Connecticut, a place where nothing ever happens. That is until spoiled cousin Penelope, better known as Pen, has a near fatal fall from an ancient ash tree. Pen's body is infiltrated by the vengeful spirit of an eighteenth century man bent on revenge against the descendants of those who unjustly murdered him. In an attempt to save Pen from the possession, Dice a [...]

    11. I was going to hold off on writing reviews for a bit, but having read this book, I just couldn't keep my mouth shut. I picked up Swoon because I was in the mood for a romantic ghost story, but what I got was really more of a hybrid:one part haunted love story, and one part soapy book about the misbehavior of pretty rich kids, which is only in part supernaturally inspired. The heroine, Dice (short for Candice) has recently moved to the town of Swoon, Connecticut, full of rich, beautiful people, m [...]

    12. Check out my series review here: freadomlibrary.wordpress/CriticallyPlot – 3 out of 5 starsreally slow, kind of confusing, includes some unfortunate graphic content, insta love, it deals with ghosts, mythology, psychic abilities, it felt really flat and it was kind of boring the majority of the timeWriting Style – 3 out of 5 starsreally long and dragged out, kind of scattered with the thought process, simple, descriptive, kind of intense, dark, heavy, weird as hellCharacters – 2.5 out of 5 [...]

    13. This might possibly be the worst book I have ever read. It is most definitely in the top 10 (and I read a lot of crap books). Welcome to the town of Swoon, CT, with its sordid history; alternately lax-to-the-point-of-neglect and controlling-to-the-point-of-abuse parenting; monosyllabic nicknames; teen parties, sex, drugs, suicide, and ghost-possessed. Meet Dice, our protagonist, abandoned here by her well meaning parents after some unnamed tragedy. She falls in love with an evil, sexually predac [...]

    14. This book was so good, though I've heard it hasn't had the best reviews, I completly disagree. I loved this book, from the beginning when you meet Candice or Dice as she goes by, you just fall in love with her struggle, not just that she's falling in love with Sinclair Youngblood Powers, the handsome, sexy, spirit possessing his cousin Pen, but how she feels this need to save the town from themselves, especially when she inadverently sets him free. This causes making her feelings for him grow ev [...]

    15. Swoon is the story of Dice who falls in love with Sin, a ghost for want of a better word, who inhabits her cousin Pen's body. It sounds like a simple concept but personally I found Swoon such a difficult book to read. I would even go so far as to say that this is close to being the worst book I have read all year. I bought my copy from the Book Depository as I had read a really interesting review on a blog but I can't remember which one. I certainly do not blame the blogger who recommended this [...]

    16. No. Just No. (Fully fleshed out and more coherently thought out review to come later)What on earth did I just read? I'm not a prude (in fact, I applaud YA authors who deal with sexual situations in a frank manner), but last time I checked, spanking is something that's featured in erotic fiction, not YA. Was there a plot? Who knows? The only thing I can pretty much tell you is that this book didn't make me care enough to want to pick up on any nuances and undertones in the novel. The characters? [...]

    17. I picked Swoon up knowing that it was supposed to be dark, edgy and sexy. It definitely had the dark, perhaps the edgy as well, but I found nothing about this book even remotely sexy. It starts off well with a promising premise--Pen's body becoming inhabited by a ghost when she falls from a tree. The fascination that Dice, a slightly psychic teenager, feels for Sin, the ghost, made me think that the story was going to go a certain way. But when horrible things start happening around the town of [...]

    18. Swoon by Nina Malkin DNF after 2 chapters (any further and my eyeballs would've fallen out of my head.)I was rearranging my bookshelves today when I came to the horrifying realization that I would have to doublestack on a shelf. That is something I've never done and almost cried doing. So I've decided to start purging some books. I've been wanting to read this book for years. I was so excited when I found it at a used bookstore and I've had it on my shelf for around four years now. I waited far [...]

    19. This book was one of the first I read when starting out on YA novels. I had read a few of them before this, and I was totally fine. Heck, I thought, YA novels could never go wrong. Swoon made me think otherwiseISBOOKWASAWFUL.It was the first book on my YA rampage that made me wary about what I was reading. I used to go through my good friend and lover, , and leaf through all the 3 star novels it suggested to me. I would read a decently reviewed book and (although it's nothing like The Hunger Gam [...]

    20. I don't recommend Swoon.*****You are my life, but you are not my purposeSTY.Swoon started out great. Then Sinclair came into the scenes, making Dice ‘swoon’ and cheap, then somewhere in that crazy book the plot loses its substance. I did not mind the sexual innuendo at first, but then it gets nastier. Ugh. If it were up to me, I’d list Swoon under Adult Paranormal Romance. Nina Malkin, I have expected more story than this.Dice is a psychic, or so she says. Her psychic part was barely devel [...]

    21. The cover is really cool! The book? Not so muchSwoon was one of those books that I really, really wanted to love. I tried so hard to understand this book but in the end It was just a rambling confusing mess. I think in this case the author was putting to much personal in her characters that were not yet developed enough to appreciate. Even when we did get the feel for the characters they still fell flat and then there's the randomness with sex and lust that took over the initial concept. The plo [...]

    22. The Good: The beginning was good, it drew you in… and when I say “it drew you in”, what I really meant was the book is practically daring you to put it down! And you can’t because it is so fascinating and you just HAVE to know what happens next. The middle… it was pretty good, but the ending, OMG, the ending really delivered the most.Usually those types of endings make me want to chuck the book out the window… this was not the case with Swoon. And that takes skill to make me, the mos [...]

    23. More reviews here: bookbybooksummer/I read in other reviews the number of people who've tried to like this book, and failed. I have to agree.Finding this in 2009, I'd really wanted to read it. I spend good money on it, and the entire time I was reading I tried desperately not to throw it down or destroy the pages. I had such a wide variety of problems with this book that I'll admit that I feel terrible in listing them all. But I will. 1 - The characters were UNLIKABLE. To me, reading this book f [...]

    24. I really didn't like this book. It started out really well, with a near-death incident and an interesting voice. But it just went downhill from there. This is possibly the weirdest YA book I have ever read, and that is saying something. Why was it weird, you ask? RAMPANT SEX. That is basically the theme of the book. There are orgies and spontaneous orgasms and seductions and none of it really had any point.Okay, I'll start at the beginning. Our heroine, nicknamed Dice (short for Candice), has mo [...]

    25. Hmmwhere to begin? This is going to be a difficult review for me to write, because I just couldn't find anything I liked about Swoon (Except for the cover. Does that count?). I don't leave books unfinished very often, but unfortunately, I was not able to finish Swoon.This is the first book I've actually not finished since I started blogging a year ago. I gave it my best shot: I read the first 250 pages, and then ended up skimming the rest of the book, but it took a lot of motivation for me to do [...]

    26. Review to come. This book wasn't amazing, but it was amusing. I wish it wasn't YA though.

    27. ****May contain spoilers **** I decided to do my first review on this book because, first, after almost two years since I read it, I still can't get rid of the sour taste it left in my mouth and, second, because I was recently notified that a second installment to this series is coming out on the date of my birthday. Since the universe has decided to make a joke out of me adding insult to injury, I decided to share with the world my views on this book titled Swoon. I bought this book because of [...]

    28. Chapter 1 - O.O <- my face'wha?'Chapter 2 -"I dreamt of shaking a cow and in the morning the milk was sour." I don't think I was supposed to find that as funny as I did. And it's the only sentence I really came away with. Oh and seizures.Chapter 3 -I'm getting very nervous. I didn't read the reviews until after I started reading. I assumed this was YA. Feels like it should be. But now I'm worried when all the deflowering and orgies will occur. And how bad it's going to be. But I think I will [...]

    29. I got this book through Vine. I was excited to get it because I actually had this book on my wish list. Boy was I disappointed.The concept is interesting. Dice has some psychic ability. When her friend Pen falls from a tree and dies for a moment; Pen's body is entered by the spirit of Sinclair (Sin). Sin was wrongly murdered many, many years ago and wants revenge against the town of Swoon (where they all live). Sins presence makes Pen act out and Dice tries to exorcise Sin; instead she ends up [...]
