Oh.My.Gods: A Book Review

Title: Oh.My.Gods
Author: Tera Lynn Childs
Genre: Fantasy/Romance
Reading Level: Ages 13 and up

After a long month of wedding planning, and getting the whole house back together once the party was over, I was finally able to get back to reading. Unfortunately the first book I picked up was Oh.My.Gods because it had a promisingly hilarious premise where a young girl named Phoebe Castro is carted off of to Greece by her mother, who plans of marrying a man she has know for only a couple weeks. Once in Greece she finds that the new school she has to go to, is a private school for the descendent's of Greek gods. Now not only does she have to deal with homework and wedding plans but also classmates able to smite her with their powers, which is bad news for Phoebe who seems to effortlessly make enemies with her step sister and the girlfriend of the hottest demi-god in the school. After a fresh start, that I enjoyed, cliche's began to abound and the writing was just not stimulating or unique enough to warrant my finishing this book. The character development was poor and almost non-existence, her mother seemed really childish for a psychiatrist, the rest of the characters were so boring I forgot them as soon as they were introduced. That includes the love interest who's just like every other love interest. I am not a fan of books were relationships are based purely on the heroine wanting to kiss the lips of the hero. Yeah, that's gonna last.
