    One thought on “Die for Me”

    1. So I was thinking that I need to get me some hot, immortal teen boy action because that is not at all creepy and weird.The first step was to kill either one or both of my parents because I feel, statistically, that to be a YA protagonist, I would have a much better chance of meeting a hot, immortal teen boy that way It was surprisingly easy to doI also needed a legitimate reason to look sad all the time so that when he first saw me, I could look a little like this Took me FOREVER to figure out h [...]

    2. Oh, beautiful cover you ve lured me in once again Die for Me is somewhere between 2 and 2.5 stars for me What I liked about the book The paranormal set up is a fairly original unusual one Vincent and his friends are revenants, undead guardians who help to save humans from potential danger Their enemies are numas, who are undead evil doers who try their best to lure humans to their deaths through various different methods I rather enjoyed the novelty of having a YA book set in Paris, which is pro [...]

    3. I don t really have strong feelings about this book, but I m leaning towards disliked With that in mind though, there weren t any characters I hated, I thought the general premise for the story was clever and different, and I didn t find that Plum overused clich s or metaphors too often Ultimately where this novel turned sour for me was the romance I won t discount the fact that people, both young and old, can fall irrevocably in love in a short period of time The ability to write a love story [...]

    4. It s started out SO good The book and I had SUCH an amazing connection, you know And I was REALLY loving it and I was getting ready to introduce it to the family and then BOOM I got stood up at around the 40% percent line Seriously I might as well have been wearing a prom dress ____________________________________________After the 40% mark this book s storyline deteriorated like well, like deterioration You know how with some books, you reach the halfway mark, and you re kind of wishing a HUGE, [...]

    5. Edit This is how I imagine Vincent irresistiblereadsLOVE this book Die For Me was one of my most anticipated reads of 2011, after hearing good things from a friend waves to Olivia who read it early in the publishing stage So as you can imagine I had high expectations and I can happily say they were exceeded.Plum s writing I couldn t get enough of it Her prose is beautiful and magnetic While the concept was truly unique and intriguing The pace was perfect allowing the beauty of this story to soak [...]

    6. After the double disappointment of Starcrossed and Hereafter, I almost didn t read this book A story about a young girl who meets a mysterious, darkly handsome stranger and falls desperately in love with him, only to discover that he is in fact a zombie I was pretty much resigned to reading Twilight Zombie Edition Why not We ve already romanticized vampires, faeries, fallen angels and shapeshifters wasn t it about time the zombies had their turn Thankfully for my jaded palate, Die for Me was not [...]

    7. We don t need to see the Edward Bella romance over and over and over again Seriously We ve already seen it It was called Twilight They even made a movie about it We don t need to see Bella with fallen angels and we don t need to see Bella with zombies Especially when the zombie is a carbon copy of Edward Does Vincent have godlike good looks Check An aura of danger Check Is he a virgin immortal Check Has he lived without love for decades Check Does he fall in love with our heroine for no apparent [...]

    8. So, apparently zombies are sexy now Okay, so the young adult genre sexualized vampires, werewolves, and other monsters that should be ripping your throat out, but seriously Zombies That seems to be going a bit too far.Now, I ll just say this because it s the only thing positive I have to say about this book Die for Me s concept is extremely original Unfortunately, it s executed horribly And the sad part is, this could have actually been really good, if it hadn t taken every single clich in young [...]

    9. I m a revenant, not a vampire, ch rie This was a YA paranormal romance set in Paris.I liked the characters in this although Kate was maybe a little too reserved at times The way she argued that it was better to protect her heart rather than to fall in love and then lose that love was a little sad.The storyline in this was about Kate moving to Paris to live with her grandparents after her parent s deaths, and meeting Vincent, who wasn t quite human, but was instead a paranormal creature called a [...]

    10. At first, I just picked up this book thinking, meh, it s not going to be awesome and just use it as one of those books that I read to tide me over until the really exciting ones come out.But, man, was I proved wrong Brava, Amy Plum, brava.This book was everything I thought it wouldn t be It had love, and not the kind that makes me want to strangle the characters like many other YA novels gasp , action, and left me breathless at points to where I have gone back and re read my favorite partswhich [...]

    11. Second time around, I loved this It was exactly the light, airy pick me up that I needed How things change Review to come.

    12. After the death of their parents, Kate and Georgia move to Paris to be with there grandparents It s been really hard on Kate and she can t seem to move past her parents absence but Georgia convinces her to get out there, meet people and live, it s what their parents would have wanted.Sitting in a cafe, Kate looks up to see a very gorgeous guy sitting at a table, staring at her For a moment it seems like Kate knew him, but she also sense something different and mysterious about him, something eve [...]

    13. NOTE I am updating my reviews Y know older, wiser, eloquent Die For Me seduced me into reading it in a fit of teenage angst Which is not a bad thing Everybody needs a good paranormal romance every now and then Unfortunately Die For Me fell flat of my expectations, particularly in the realms of character development, world building, and the grossest injustice setting.I did enjoy some aspects of the book I appreciate Plum s direction, by straying from the far trodden paths of vampire and werewol [...]

    14. Die For Me certainly belonged to my list of most anticipated books of 2011 And although it didn t disappoint completely, I have to say that it didn t really wow me either I m thinking that the paranormal genre isn t for me any Maybe I ve become too nitpicky, or the books have become a bit too melodramatic for my taste, but I have decided to just stick to contemporary and other fantasy for a while now I definitely wouldn t say that this book is right up there with others in its genre in terms of [...]

    15. I only had to glimpse at the beautiful cover to know I had to read this book I didn t care what it was about I mean, look at it I can say that I was not disappointed by what was inside either It s fun and romantic, with a gorgeous setting.The setting It took my breath away Set in beautiful Paris, France, we not only get a tour of the city, but we learn and experience the culture as well It was stunning I have never been, but I could picture myself in the streets alongside these characters visiti [...]

    16. Paris comes vibrantly alive in Die For Me, a book that had me picturing Vincent Valentine Final Fantasy as Vincent, the object of Kate s affections What A girl can dream, right Really enjoyed their romance, loved Kate s relationship with her sister, and looooved the details about Paris An engrossing romance

    17. If you are looking for a great YA book that is not about angels, demons, vampires and faeries then this book is for you This book was about a girl who fell in love with a Revenant What are Revenants you say The Revenants were people who take the place of someone who was about to die They die in the place of someone else They were like guardian angels but not really They become Revenants because they died saving someone else in their past life Not everyone who does that could become like them tho [...]

    18. Oh my, this week really has not been a great one for me reading wise I was ecstatic to read Die For Me Sure there was a lot of hype surrounding it, but most importantly I had read many gushing reviews which lead me to believe it would be satisfying at least.I suppose I can start of with admitting that it is a little different regarding the setting of the book which instantly creates a very enticing and vivid picture of a place that I have been eagerly wanting to go for a long time.Sisters Kate a [...]

    19. They say you can never judge a book by its cover however this book is beautiful inside out I became sucked into Die for Me within the first chapter It was quite unusual for me as it usually takes close to 100 pages to become glued What I enjoyed most about this book was not knowing what to expect or being able to predict what would happen next Simply, it was refreshing It was fun to read about Paris I have always dreamed of the city of lights being oh so romantic I have seen Paris in movies howe [...]

    20. 3.5 STARSIf any of you have followed me for some time, you may have noticed that I ve been or less inactive on GR for about 2 years Not completely inactive I still check messages and read reviews, but I ve been indefinitely stuck in a reading slump for a long, long time now During the school year I told myself I was too busy and that I d read in the summer, and now it s summer and I m too busy with work and summer homework to enjoy myself.But I really, really miss reading I miss the people I ta [...]

    21. My review can also be found on my blog Collections.4.5 starsThe setting of Die for Me was something I really loved about the novel Reading a paranormal that is not set in a typical location like the United States or the United Kingdom is extremely refreshing Although Paris is a familiar city, it s not a place most people have the chance to actually experience I m glad the author gave us a view of Paris that wasn t focused on clich attractions and instead gave us a new glimpse of life in Paris.Re [...]

    22. For me, this book was justh, really A little between 2.5 to 3 stars.I liked the supernatural aspect, since it was pretty original And the setting, Paris, was beautiful But the problem is, that s really all I liked about it.Because to me, besides the supernatural aspect and setting, this is such a typical YA book that doesn t really stand out from others Kate was a very Mary Sue heroine, and Vincent was a typical, godly looking hero, although I give Amy Plum bonus points for not making him a jack [...]

    23. Zombie romance The very idea of this book intrigued me Amy was one of the authors joining me on the YA Scavenger Hunt and I hurried out to pick up her book shortly after that I loved getting a tour of Paris and sitting at a cafe reading with the main character The idea of the revenants and their enemies the numa was great Love the cover too.

    24. EDIT Apparently, this isn t about zombies It s actually supposed to be a good book Once again, this review is based on the blurb I d appreciate it if book blurb writers stopped catering to the Twilight Crowd Thanks.Just when I thought it couldn t happen IT DID Zombies Good Zombies that look like chiseled Greek gods that can make out with girls Why Harper Teen WHY

    25. Amy Plum s Die for Me is an enchanting debut novel with a rich setting, fresh mythology, and charming supporting cast I was swept away by the story and read into the night because like Kate, I just HAD to know what Vincent is.Die for Me s revenant is my new favorite paranormal Plum s mythology is so creative and refreshing after the countless vampire, werewolf, fairy, demon, yadda, yadda stories I ve read Her explanation for what a revenant is and how a person becomes one feels soble These are N [...]

    26. Actual Rating 1.5 stars This review is going to be long, because I have so much to say about this book So Very Much I read this for a straight two hours and was almost done before I went running, and I just came back and finished the last five pages So while I was away in the nice mountain air, I had a time to meditate and get over how irritated this book made me But when I came back, this line greeted me I didn t know what to say My eyes filled with tears Welcome back, irritation I think this l [...]

    27. I love paranormal I ve seen it getting a bad rep lately, but I can t get enough of it, it s my kind of drug And Die for Me was just what the doctor ordered Revenants say what Only a super cool dead but not dead kinda person Never heard of it before, and thought the concept totally rocked Although after I read the book and did a little research, I like Plum s take on the folklore much The thing that really stood out to me was the story itself despite that paranormal boy meets girl story line, it [...]

    28. The first thing I wanted to address was the comparison between this book and Twilight I don t see it I think we need to stop comparing all PNR books against Twilight It s lazy reviewing if I m being honest I thought this book was very unique Amy Plum took the idea of zombies and created her own twist on the mythology I adored the revenants concept, and to me, this book was a much needed breath of fresh air YA Paranormal had gotten a little stale for me lately You can read the rest of my review h [...]
